MW Squat Mobility

Exercise / Hip Mobility

MW Squat mobility

MW Squat Mobility is one of the fundamental exercises of MWTS. This exercise is optimal as preparation to bodyweight squat exercise. The main aim of SM is to prepare a correct squat-posture by stretching adductors muscles and conditioning quads and glutes for an efficient control of the position. MW-SM is the right choice if you want to start your warm-up from standing position.

 

CAUTION: If you’re unsure of your health status, have multiple health problems, previous injuries or are pregnant, speak with your doctor before starting a new exercise program.
