Army MFT Master Fitness Trainer course Phase 2 - Day 7/8/9

Army MFT Day 7/10 consisted of starting in the lab and going through the proper Squat movement.

 

To Start:

  • Stand with your feet slightly wider than your hips.
  • Your toes should be pointed slightly outward – about 5 to 20 degrees outward (the wider your stance, the more you’ll want to rotate your feet outward).
  • Look straight ahead and pick a spot on the wall in front of you.
  • Look at this spot the entire time you squat, not looking down at the floor or up at the ceiling.

  • It can be measured in BPM and/or pace.
