Rolling Squat Instructions
1. Stand up at the front of the mat with your feet shoulder-width apart.
2. Bend your knees and press your hips back, until the glutes touch the mat.
3. Roll back with your knees bent.
4. Roll forward into the squat position and stand up.
5. Repeat until the set is complete.
Proper Form And Breathing Pattern
Engage your core, keep your hips back, and don’t let the knees extend beyond the toes. Use your speed and momentum to roll back and forth, one vertebra at a time, and push through the heels to stand back up. Inhale as you squat and breathe out as you come up.
