Staci Demonstrates A Proper Bodyweight Squat | Nerd Fitness Updated on October 18, 2019 By William Clement 24 Comments By William Clement 24 Comments Vegan Lumps March 4, 2014 I'm literally three days into doing squats so i'm still working on actually doing them right, this thorough explanation is exactly what I needed (I'm glad I signed up to the nerd fitness mailing list TODAY), thanks – looking forward to my morning squats now! Reply Sjoerd Bergstra March 4, 2014 Wonderful! Just what I needed! Good work Staci, hope to see more! 🙂 Reply VibeVixen02 March 4, 2014 With the knees going straight out for the chair position in Yoga, does that add more pressure to my knees? Reply Franz Dirks March 14, 2014 One thing that gets me is getting low enough. Can't do it without falling backwards and/or wobbling. >.< Reply CountChokcula November 29, 2014 You have big butt Reply Courtney Dabney April 23, 2015 I'm not sure if I am doing my squats right because I feel it more in my quads and hamstrings than in my actual glutes. I'm really trying to build stronger legs and a more tight and toned butt and it stresses me out that I don't think I am doing them right. I come from a dance background so I don't know if I'm not sticking my butt out enough because that's frowned upon in ballet or what the problem is Reply anita3088 June 4, 2015 I can't go down very far. Should I just go as far as I can and it will get better?? Reply ashley rose June 5, 2015 I've always been doing yoga INSTEAD of doing squats. finally decided to do both and found a video that actually teaches how to do squats correctly! thank you ♥ Reply ComeSweetDeath February 17, 2016 Big butt, very very nice. Reply ChlorineHeart March 30, 2016 best explanation I've seen, thanks! Reply Kelsenpai May 7, 2016 Wow this explains so much. I was doing it wrong, poppin knees every time. Doing it correctly fixed that. =] Reply SCYTHE2525 October 25, 2016 You look a lot like the woman that plays Delores on Westworld. 😉 Reply Loren Z March 4, 2017 Why do you need to go down to at least parallel?Does it just work different muscles? Is it bad for your knees?I ride horses, and I usually try to get my squats to mimic jump position as much as possible, but would I be better off dropping further into the squat? Reply sunnyday sarah March 5, 2017 Oh my god, this is the best explanation video I've ever seen. I haven't been able to get low because I always hurt my knees and after you explained to keep the weight off your toes, I did ten body weight squats where I actually did get parallel. So awesome, Staci. Reply Madiha W March 14, 2017 looking thick, Staci! Reply Andrew Arenson March 31, 2017 Really appreciate these. Thanks. Reply 13Ata 13 June 5, 2017 Nice form gj Reply kong DaBomb August 7, 2017 damn I've been doing squats at about knee height. guess i've been doing them wrong. gotta go lower. Reply Kellie Wilson August 23, 2017 This was so helpful! Reply Derek LeDoux October 18, 2017 The bird noise at 3:52 though…. Reply Vincent Litchard February 22, 2018 The structural integrity of your drywall is putting your life at risk, as it is installed backwards. Any drywall anchor screw mounted on that wall will likely collapse and fall. Do not install drywall paper side out, it can kill ya or someone you love. Reply adi1761 May 23, 2018 Decent video except you have a butt wink while doing it Reply Sumit Singal Shanks October 10, 2018 Video starts from 2.25 Best demonstration about knee movementThat's where i was lacking when we have to hold its movement when we goes up Reply unknowndeoxys00 May 12, 2019 I'm trying to watch my squatting at work since I lift a lot of boxes and buckets of water from the ground. I was worried about how my feet always turned outward and how I seem to bend all the way forward when I reach for an item. I do try keep my weight on my heels and not on my toes, but I do notice how I seem to "fold" myself in half, instead of keeping a more upright back. And since I'm not necessarily aiming to work out, I don't do a complete squat with my buttocks all the way down. Is this improper form too?
