Leg Strength vs. Back Strength In The Squat
For those with strong legs and a weak back relatively, it’s vital to strengthen your spinal erectors, hamstrings, glutes, and lower back.
For those with a strong back and weak legs relatively, improving your actual leg strength will do wonders for your squat. Focusing on movements such as the belt squat, legs press, and hack squat will help isolate your legs with heavy loads, making them great movements.
