Can you ever squat too well? Probably not.
The air squat, a foundational movement in CrossFit, the first movement one learns at the CrossFit certification, demands constant improvement and diligence. That torso can always be a little more upright, lumbar extension can always be better, the knees should always track out over the toes and never cave in, and you should reach proper depth each time. It won’t ever be perfect, but that should be the goal.
Practice, practice, practice the squat. Squat well and you’ll be surprised at how well you’re able to do many other physical movements both in CrossFit and in life.
