We've discussed the basics for a squat. There's more we can work on in the basic squat. We'll get to it later. Right now, focus on getting the basics. If the basics are easy and you feel you're ready for the next step, there are many different directions to go. Two options are to squat deeper or add some weight into a goblet squat.
If you have difficulty squatting deeply or if you don't squat deeply on a regular basis, don't force a deep squat. Instead work on getting lower over time. Getting into a deep squat isn't for everyone. Another option may be to add weight to your squat. One way to do this is the goblet squat. The weight is held directly in front of you where it can help you get deeper into your squat. The weight stays close to your body and your base of support, which makes balance and control easier.
If you have any challenges, don't jump into these squats. Ask someone qualified for some help.
