💥And while there鈥檚 truth to that… it鈥檚 not actually ALWAYS true.聽

Let鈥檚 start by saying that 鈥渘eutral spine鈥 doesn鈥檛 mean a fixed position.. rather, it means a range where the spine can move (flex/extend) without troubles.

Quite infact, if you鈥檝e ever squatted ATG (ass to grass) you鈥檝e noticed your pelvis rolling backwards at the bottom and no matter how hard you try not to, if you really want to get deeper, you鈥檒l have to go through that.

✅聽But, is that a bad thing?聽

Not at all: It鈥檚 a physiological mechanism that occurs to make up for the lack of space at the hips, when performing a deep squat.

Everybody who squats ATG experiences some type of buttwink, to a degree, and there鈥檚 nothing wrong with it.

The problem comes when the lumbar flexion exceeds the 鈥渘eutral range鈥 and it becomes evident. That鈥檚 where problems start to happen.

✅聽Bottom line: IF you鈥檙e keeping your chest up, back tight & neutral, while breathing through your diaphragm to keep your torso up, and squatting the weight through your legs… the butt wink won鈥檛 be a problem.
On the other hand, if you鈥檙e actually squatting the weight up wih your back, well, you need to re-evaluate your technique!
