Counterbalance

It can be very difficult for a lot of us to properly hit the bottom of a squat.  There is an endless amount of mobility drills, stretches, and soft tissue work that can be done to increase range of motion.  One not so obvious way to open up your squat is using counterbalance.  Not only does it allow your hips and lower body to open up, it also enables you to stay very upright.  Putting yourself in this position with some weight, and then slowly decreasing the weight could really help to solidify the correct bottom position. 
Jeri and Kelley looked incredible during the counterbalance warm up this morning, and there squatting in the workout showed how these drills can effectively translate.
Nice job ladies!
