i've just started barbell hack squats and am wondering if i got the technique correct.
I start the lift from the ground, my problem comes as i get past parrel cause the bar gets stuck under me (on my hammy's and butt) i then have to push my knees way over my toes while also pushing my back and pelvis forward so as i can complete the movement
This only occurs when i'm using heavy wieght about 5-10 rep wieght where i cant push the bar back with my arms.
I am wondering if i'm ment to b doing this, cause especially when i'm trying to lift as fast as possible it feels really unco.
Is this normal and just part of learning the movement?
Also is doing this alright for the knees cuase after finishing my sets for the hack squats my knees had slight irratation. THere wasnt a lot of pain but i could feel that it was wierd and felt like i needed to get in a massage it. about 24 hours on it is back to normal, i only feel a little irration when when i fully straiten the leg. Is this irratation just my knee joints getting used to the exercise?
thanks for the help
