VIDEO: Exercise Rights And Wrongs – Squats
Hope you’re all still enjoying Angry Trainer Fitness as we continue on our mission to tell the TRUTH about health and fitness…
Today the Angry Trainer Team is very excited as we’re about to start launching video content here on the site. Yes, we’ve been wanting to expand the site for a while now and a couple of weeks ago we shot some great little segments which we’ll be running over the next few weeks. There’s no stopping us now!
This video is for a new strand we’re running here on the site called Exercise Rights And Wrongs. The fact is that I see so many people at the gym – and on reality TV shows – using terrible form and putting themselves at terrible risk for injury. Plus they’re not even getting the full benefits of the exercise they’re performing!
To kick us off I’m addressing the form of one of the greatest exercises of all time – The Squat.
The Squat is called the “king of all exercises” because it works every muscle in your body, and when performed correctly, can increase an individual’s fitness level significantly. But as with most common exercises, many people get ahead of themselves and use too much weight, poor form, and run a very high risk of injury.
Check out the video below – pass it on to your friends and comment away – I listen to all of the feedback you provide.
Also head over to the Angry Trainer Fitness channel on You Tube – and become a subscriber and you’ll be notified about all my upcoming videos. .
Stay angry everyone!
PS Special thanks to Jay at CrossFit, Ridgefield for the location and our cameraman Craig Dacey

I’ve got a really awesome workout to share with you today – I think you’re gonna love this one! As you may know I recently passed my Crossfit Level 1 trainer’s test and have been using many CrossFit style Workout Of The Days (or WOD’s) in my own workouts ever since. Many of you…

At some point or another you’ve probably used hip bridges in your fitness routine. And if you’re a man who thinks that this movement is just for the ladies – you’re wrong! The hip bridge is a great way to glute and hamstring strength. You can use them before a workout as a pre-exhaustion exercise…

I’ll be honest – in the past if I was short on time I’d just skip my workout altogether. But these days I know better and I’ve realized that you don’t have to be in the gym to get great benefits from a simple exercise routine. So today I’m sharing a bodyweight / resistance band…

What’s the one body part EVERYONE seems to want these days? I’d go for six-pack abs – that much desired washboard stomach that every infomercial and workout video seems to be geared towards! Well six-pack abs take a lot of work and let’s be honest – working your abs can sometimes be boring right?…
