SOoOoO we accidentally matched today 😝 hehe love you best friend!
One day we will get a good picture together 😭 until then we just keep trying!! 😂
Also let’s take a minute to thank her for getting me into squatting & now starting to deadlift tooooo.. nobody’s everrrr been able to do that. 💪🏼✌🏼
Today was my last leg session of this prep. I made it count lots of volume in this session.
I'm excited to see how I look on stage, also vert excited about cheat meals after.
8 days out now before I light up the stage in the centrals.
San Jose listeners, check out this heat going on today, and also shotgun a few Monsters for Iron Minds.

Today’s the day! Stop by our Muscle Monster booth at the San Jose FitExpo and meet MMA fighters @danhendo and @philmrw #musclemonster#TrainRecover#sanjosefitexpo
Needs work but gotta practice those Thai kicks every day! Can’t move on until the fundamentals are solid. No mats so the floor is a little slippery 😬
In your opinion, what do you think makes a good athlete?
• Tank & shorts: @adidas
• Health Tracking Watch: @apple .
Thank you so much to all the @laochbarbell crew! That was awfully good fun being back in wraps after 16 months.

💥PEOPLE SQUAT DIFFERENTLY💥
Looking an normal anatomic variance, how can we possibly think that every human will squat exactly the same❓
📊 I think it's good to know and understand some general guidelines when assessing the squat. Things I like to look at include weight distribution, hip hinge, bar path (if loaded squat), and general symmetry with the movement. However, the golden question is: is this variation normal (i.e anatomic), is it learned (motor control/strength/etc) can I improve it, and do I need to? That's a loaded question(s). One that I can't fully address in just an instagram post because as the saying goes "it depends." But it's a line of thinking that I would recommend we ask ourselves as movement professionals instead of dogmatically saying things like "knees can't go past toes/feet have to be shoulder width/butt wink will kill you" etc. I think we (and I for that matter) can do better.
🌐 That said, in the picture you'll see a few different things. (Shout out to the man Ryan @themovementfix for the inspiration) The femur (thigh bone) has an articulation point with the acetabulum (hip socket). The head of the femur can vary widely anatomically, both in size and in angulation (such as femoral anteversion and retroversion) If someone has excessive anteversion of the femur, what squat stance would they likely be most comfortable with? ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
The depth of the socket is also important, as is the direction the socket is facing. Observe the depth difference in the left vs right. Which one do you think is better for a narrow stance squat? The femoral neck angle may also change throughout life, and varies widely with gender and ethnicity.
🔑Take home message: Humans move differently. Not only do people vary anatomically from person to person, but there can also be variation in individual laterality. Also note, this is not a comprehensive list of all the reasons why people squat differently.
