There is nothing inherently wrong with a little butt wink. It’s important to understand where it is occurring in the movement pattern, whether it causes pain, whether you’re squatting under load or not, what your previous injury history is, and whether or not it is a functional vs. structural issue.
The best thing you can do is to watch yourself in the mirror or have a certified professional evaluate you. There are a lot of ways to improve your mobility, strength, and technique which can improve this compensatory movement pattern. Shoot us a message if you think you’re winking too much!
