How To: Back Squat Accessories

Sunday, August 20, 2017 - 17:34

Here are 3 of coach Mitch’s favourite accessory exercises to improve your back squat.

These exercises are designed to be completed either in a structural circuit prior to your session to enhance movement quality or as working sets after you have completed your main lifts.

1.Bulgarian Split Squat: For those who need to improve their single leg stability and strength. This can be loaded several ways such as dumbbells, kettlebells or a barbell.

2.GHD Hip Extension: Great exercise to improve your glute and hamstring strength and can be loaded using a plate held across the chest.

3.KB Front Rack Carry: Is your midline letting you down? This exercise is fantastic for loading your spine, requiring you to stabilise while moving your limbs.

If you are struggling to improve your back squat, give these a try to break through the plateaus.
