One thing I learned from Dr. Stuart McGill while attending his lectures at the Perform Better Summit this year Personal Trainer Scottsdale, was that squat depth has more to do with a person’s hip socket depth, then any other factors. Dr. McGill has been studying the spine for over 30 years, and has noted that the shallower a person’s hip socket will allow for greater range of motion which in turn will allow a person to squat deeper. The flip side of that is of course a person with a deep hip socket will have a more restricted range of motion which will increase the risk of injury the deeper they squat.


 


 


A study performed at the University of Newfoundland in 2014 (Maddigan et al.) looked to compare the results in muscle activation from a traditional exercise like the back squat, and a relatively newer movement (in a gym setting) like a sled push. All participants in the study were men who had a minimum of two years of resistance training experience and had squat experience.


 


An Electromyography (EMG) was used to analyze the quads, hamstrings, calves, lower back and obliques. With the EMG showing basically how hard the muscles were working during the movements. Their results yielded results showing firstly the amount of weight one can push on a sled to be significantly higher then what they could squat, but this should not be too surprising, especially to anyone who has worked with a sled in the past, the more interesting results came from the EMG.
