Abstract

THE BACK SQUAT IS A WELL-RESEARCHED AND WIDELY USED EXERCISE TO ENHANCE FUNDAMENTAL MOVEMENT COMPETENCY THAT CREATES A FOUNDATION FOR OPTIMAL MECHANICAL STRATEGIES DURING A BROAD RANGE OF ACTIVITIES. THE PRIMARY COMMENTARY INTRODUCED THE BACK SQUAT ASSESSMENT (BSA): A CRITERION-BASED ASSESSMENT OF THE BACK SQUAT THAT DELINEATES 30 POTENTIALLY OBSERVABLE FUNCTIONAL DEFICITS. THIS FOLLOW-UP COMMENTARY PROVIDES A TARGETED SYSTEM OF TRAINING CUES AND EXERCISES TO SUPPLEMENT THE BSA TO GUIDE CORRECTIVE INTERVENTION. WE PROPOSE A CRITERION-DRIVEN APPROACH TO CORRECTIVE EXERCISE THAT CAN SUPPORT PRACTITIONERS IN THEIR GOAL TO HELP INDIVIDUALS ACHIEVE MOVEMENT COMPETENCY IN THE BACK SQUAT.
