First of all, my first post! English isn’t my native lanquage, so sorry if the’res some mistakes.
I’ve practiced martial arts for about 3 years, and just bought a gym card! I have always done full squats, all the way down.
Today i noticed that when at the bottom position (bar on my back), i seem to lift with my back, more than my thighs to get moving. Is this normal, should i just train so that i use only my legs? It seems to come naturally to include my back in it, when forcing only legs, they really feel worked after a few reps. Am i wasting my time by including my back?
BW squats are no problem, but of course the bar gives a bit more weight.
Before anyone warns my about fullsquats, i have got my knees to a better shape by doing them BW than they were at teenager when i still went to gym, and did only 90 degree squats.
