Vertical shinsVintage lifting.

Squatting has been a preferred method of strength training since the advent of strength training. Heavy lifting leads to stronger athletes. Simple concept. What is not so simple, is the 'how' we lift heavy. Sound mechanics are paramount. When back squatting heavy we cue our athletes to keep the shins vertical. In the photo above you can see that the athlete's shins are not perfectly vertical, nor would we expect them to be. The shins are nearly vertical and in correct position for her.  Often a cue is not the exact bio-mechanical action we are looking for but affects the change we need. That change being; the loading of the hamstrings and a subsequent heel-based drive.
