Ever wondered where your toes should be pointed while you squat? Here is a nicely written article addressing the toes forward or toes out argument.

Kelly Starrett is a huge advocate for toes forward.


John North pictured here is one of the best current American weightlifters and has a toes out stance with his squat.

***Also don’t forget about the upcoming Kettlebell Workshop on Saturday December 7th, 12pm-2pm taught by our very own Fundamentals Instructor Caleb. Learn the Hardstyle KettleBell Swing & the Turkish Get-Up from certified SFG Instructors. Proper kettlebell technique can really help to learn how to engage the hips properly and has strong carry over to a lot pretty much everything else in some form or another. I strongly recommend this Workshop but act fast because its a 10 person limit! Email Caleb: calebchiu@gmail.com for more information!***
