CROSSFIT FUNDAMENTALS #1: The Air Squat

The Air Squat is one of the first 9 fundamental CrossFit moves you will learn. This move acts as a foundation, setting you up to perform more technical exercises down the track.

In the video below, 4 x CrossFit Games competitor James Hobart gives you a clear demo of how to correctly perform an Air Squat:

performing an Air Squat:

  1. Feet shoulder-width apart
  2. Hips descend back and down
  3. Hips descend lower than knees
  4. Maintain lumbar curve
  5. Heels down
  6. Knees in line with toes
  7. Complete at full hip and knee extension

That may seem like a lot of advice for a basic move! However, getting an air squat right reduces the amount of pressure going into your body where it shouldn’t. By keeping the correct stance, you are reducing your risk of injury while maximising your strength and efficiency.

If it feels difficult the first time you attempt an Air Squat, don’t worry. It can be challenging to get the hang of it, particularly if you have not done much training in the past. With a little practice you will be surprised at how quickly you are able to master this move.
