Conquering the basics 1
Fuel Athletics coach Matin Fayzal lays down the basics of CrossFit, where the aim is to finish the set and get better every time, writes Aznim Ruhana Md Yusup
Stand with your feet apart and your hands straight in front of you. Your hands need to stay up as you go down to balance your body so that it doesn’t tilt forward.
The squat hinges on your knees, and your knees need to track your toes. So lower your body, and you will likely need to spread your legs wider so the knees don’t go inwards, although you shouldn’t spread too much either. The knees should always line up to your toes as you go up and down.
Then dip low enough that your buttocks go below the knee before you rise up. “What we’re doing is technically called the Asian squat. If your buttocks is at knee level, it’s called a parallel squat,” says
Fayzal. Repeat 10 times.
