Coach's Tips

The V-squat machine is a machine workout that allows you to do squats more stably and comfortably!

How to

Starting Position

1. Stand facing the V-Squat machine with your feet hip-width apart and your toes pointing slightly outward. 2. Position your feet on the footplate shoulder-width apart, with your entire feet resting on the footplate. 3. Grab the handles on the side of the machine for balance and support. 4. Stand up straight with your core engaged, shoulders back and down, and chest lifted.

Proper Form

1. Inhale as you bend your knees and lower your body down into a squat, keeping your back straight and your chest lifted. 2. Lower your body down until your thighs are parallel to the ground or until you feel a comfortable stretch in your quadriceps. 3. Exhale as you push through your heels and straighten your legs to return to the starting position. 4. Keep your back straight throughout the movement and avoid rounding your spine.

Breathing Technique

1. Inhale as you lower your body down into a squat. 2. Exhale as you push through your heels and straighten your legs to return to the starting position.

Precautions

1. Start with a lighter weight and focus on proper form before gradually increasing the weight. 2. Avoid locking your knees at the top of the movement, as this can put unnecessary stress on your joints. Keep a slight bend in your knees at all times. 3. Avoid leaning forward or rounding your spine during the exercise, as this can put unnecessary stress on your lower back. Keep your back straight and your chest lifted. 4. If you experience any pain or discomfort, stop the exercise and seek advice from a certified personal trainer or medical professional. 5. Make sure to adjust the footplate height to match your range of motion and comfort level, as well as the handles to a comfortable height. Remember to keep your entire feet on the footplate and avoid lifting your heels up off the plate.
