Band Assisted Squat Correction

Here's one way using a band to correct squat form with some proper cuing shows dramatic improvement.

Video was used to demonstrate flawed technique first, then reinforced with band around the knees with cues to brace core, pull bar down into traps, hip back, and push knees against band resistance.

This is one really quick way to help engage the medial glutes and teach a lifter to utilize their hips in the appropriate manner.  There are many others, but this can work very well if you need a person to feel their hips and glutes activate.
