The late Mel Siff, PhD, one of the great minds in the field of exercise science and the author of Supertraining, used this muscle memory trick to help with your squat technique. Before your first set of squats, sit tall on a bench with your shoulders pulled back, and your calves perpendicular to the ground and shoulder width apart. Raise your arms straight out in front of you and parallel to the ground and hold. Lean forward bending at the hips, without bending your spine and move your feet back only far enough so you maintain your balance while standing up slowly and without rocking backwards or forwards or change your body posture. Pay close attention to this position, it’s the position your body should be in when you squat. Once you’re standing, reverse the movement and slowly return to the seated position. Do several times to make sure you’ve go a body feel for the position.
