The Modified Cook Squat (Video)

By: Craig Fitzpatrick

We love cook squats!  But for some of our patients that have the dreaded butt-wink (rounding of the lower back as you descend into your squat) we have found a modification that will help you out. This modified Cook Squat is designed to stretch the muscles that pulls our back into an unsafe position when squatting with a load, all while maintaining neutral spinal alignment. In other words, it is another reason to love the rehab guys at Hosmer Chiropractic!
