Do you have proper squat form? AchievePTC Coach Sofia Marin demonstrates the “Chair of Death” drill to help improve and hone your squat form in the gym. Master the Chair of Death and you’ll be crushing squats in no time.
This drill will promote proper body mechanics during your squat, including hinging at the hips and engaging your glutes (the largest muscle group in the body) to promote accurate form and help prevent injury.
During the nine-week gym phase, we encourage athletes to practice the Chair of Death drill 20 repetitions a day and at least 5 reps immediately before performing weighted squats at the squat rack.
Tools: Chair & Long Stick (ex: broom stick). Duration: 5 minutes
Can you execute the Chair of Death squat without letting your knees drift forward into the chair? Give it a try!
