Today’s focus is to work on the calf, therefore take a mental note on the tightness of the calf as you squat into the seated position.
Using a mirror to help engage a brain / body connection, practise your squat. Take note of where you are tight and how deep you can go on your squat.
Set your feet shoulder-width apart, toes slightly turned out. With a straight back and open shoulders, slowly bend at the knees and drop your hips to lower your body. Ensure to push your knees out very marginally when you reach the 90° angle. If able, aim to deepen your squat beyond 90 degrees to the maximum range of your hip and squat ability. At the bottom of the exercise, squeeze your glutes and pause for a moment. Strongly push back up to the starting position, mirroring the descent. Keep your upper core engaged. Drive the energy through the heels to the glutes.
Complete 25-30 reps, according to your ability, and again, take note of the areas which feel tight and how deep you can go with this.
