Squat Coaching Question
I have a friend, a woman in her 50s new to weightlifting, who is having trouble squatting properly.
She's very flexible from doing a lot of yoga, it's not a flexibility problem.
She can do air squats very nicely, but put even a pvc pipe on her back, and when she goes down, her weight shifts forward, as if she's trying to carry the weight on a flat back.
She's usually really good at kinesthetic awareness, she's got great balance and good flexibility. This looks like some mental block. Usual cues of "chest up" and "weight on your heels" aren't helping.
Any suggestions as to how to coach her through this?
