Biomechanics Still Matter
In this episode of the podcast I get to speak with the man behind Squat University – Aaron Horschig, who himself is an ex competitive Olympic style lifter, Physiotherapist, writer & speaker working with some of the cream of the crop in competitive sports – from NFL to competitive weightlifting. In this episode we address the elephant in the room of biomechanics – do they really matter? Is technique that important or is there something to the social media influencer style of “just getting it done, doesn’t matter how”. We discuss the wider implications and the evidence behind why some beliefs have developed around lifting and technique as a result of certain studies. Listen in to find out more… oh, and yes, we do discuss the squat!
