Let’s talk 🗣 FENCING 🤺
In the sport of fencing, the on-guard position is the "ready" or start position from which one proceeds with attack. ⠀⠀
As shown in video, the feet are slightly beyond shoulder width apart, legs bent, with forward knee positioned directly over the midline of the foot. As one advances and retreats, it is important to maintain proper form for optimal movement, force production and of course, results.
The squat is a great exercise to build strength in the muscles that support this position. In the video you will see a standard progression-body weight,goblet, and barbell squats,respectively. ⠀⠀
Benefits of SQUATS for fencing:
💥Strengthens lower body and core
💥Bilateral,stable and well-balanced movement
💥Allows maximum force production
💥Increases force production and acceleration, particularly the advance, retreat, and lunge movements.
