#30DaysToStrongerKnees Day 6: Squat Pulse

Hopefully by now body squats are feeling a bit more natural and the motor control of your glutes is starting to come around. If you are still struggling, fear not- pulsing movements are here!

Start today by warming up with the first three exercises from this series. Once warmed up, you are ready to squat. Start standing hip distance about. Without shifting your weight forward, slowly sit down and back. Once you feel a good stretch in your glutes and hamstrings, squeeze your glutes then release. You should only move about 2-3 inches with this motion. If you are warmed up correctly, these should be easy!

Your goal is to squeeze and release. Starting out, I would do 3 sets of 30 reps. This movement ensures you are using your glutes from the bottom all the way to the top of your squatting movements. Using your glutes properly will be the biggest component to help to heal your knees!
