"Where should one's balance be in a squat?" is a question we often receive. In China, athletes are taught to keep their balance over the midfoot (ie center of the supporting surface). According to professor Gu Yongquan balance is a basic biomechanical criteria that must be met for all weightlifting movements, otherwise the legs cannot serve as the athlete's foundation and cannot release the maximal amount of force. Coming off a triple bodyweight rack jerk, here we again see our friend Liao Hui (69kg Olympic and World champion) maintaining his balance over his midfoot as he explodes out of a 260kg front squat, which is about 3.5 times bodyweight and a 5kg personal best over what he told us during his US tour with us last December. So if you're having difficulty in your squat, look to your balance. If you find this helpful, stop by the Ma Strength store to help support our work.
