As some of you know, I'm doing Smolov for the first time. I'm in the 3rd week of the base mesocycle right now but I have a problem. My Chest seems to be caving in after 6-7 reps with 315 LBS.
- Sometimes I look down when I squat, But ir eally try to keep the head up.
I can do a full overhead squat without problems, I can do the same with front squats. My problem lies with back squats.
My toes point out when I squat
I squat beyond the point of parallel, to the point where I sometimes bounce off the calves.
Seems I get a cramp, or tightening in the right erector when trying to arch a lot, in order to keep my head and chest up.
I notice that when I squat down without weight, I always bring my arms forward.
I'm really not sure what could cause the problem, I started the program just fine, I think.
Could it be I lost some flexibility? Any advice?
