MASTER THE SQUAT by Zach Long, PT, DPT, SCS aka The Barbell Physio is the answer to any athlete, coach, or clinician wanting to improve the fundamental movement pattern of the squat.
The squat is an essential movement pattern, but many lose the ability to perform a proper squat over time, and the movement must be retrained to allow them to perform daily activities such as standing from a seated position. Master the squat
In the world of athletic development, the squat is the most important exercise for developing powerful hip extension, and thus it is one of the best exercises for improving athleticism.
Performing a proper squat requires significant mobility throughout the body, but the ability to move all the involved joints through their available ranges of motion does not necessarily ensure a perfect squat. The squat also requires considerable motor control, meaning the athlete must be able to efficiently utilize his or her available motion through proper muscle activation. While mobility is often blamed for poor movement, motor control is just as important.
MASTER THE SQUAT is designed to give you the tests and correctives exercises needed to improve any athlete’s squat. Whether you are an athlete, coach, or rehab professional this comprehensive video and e-book has the tools you need to step your game up!

“As a coach and athlete, this video is a great tool when trying to determine how to best help my athletes (and myself) move more efficiently. Zach proves that there is no “one size fits all” magical fix for the squat. Instead, he clearly demonstrates how to safely assess and correct common squat faults.”–Kyra Severson, CrossFit Level 2 Trainer
