Movement Of The Moment

Updated: Feb 8

In this edition of MoTM, Autism Fitness Level I Certified Pro Carolina provides a squat regression for athlete Richard.

Our Autism Fitness athlete Richard (54 years old and master of wonderfully aggressive rope swings) has difficulty performing the squat. He leans forward. He takes a long time to perform the next repetition.  From a cognitive perspective, he’s not going to perform a body weight squat without both a visual/spacial cue (elevated Dynamax ball on cardio step risers) and his coach counting repetitions to keep him on task. Beneficial as the squat may be for developing lower body strength and trunk stability, the true value can only be gained from providing the right level of progression or regression for current abilities.
