This past weekend I assisted Craig Liebenson during his First Principles of Movement GPP seminar in NYC.
Before we filmed this short clip, I worked with an attendee who had given up on squatting due to knee pain. I assured her that I could find a squat variation that wouldn’t irritate her knee – she seemed hesitant (and rightfully so).
I set up a box squat with height slightly above parallel. I walked her through the movement, gave her some different cues, and then we gave it a shot. No pain.
