I’ve noticed when I squat I tend to lift my heels up and do it from my toes when I get low… is this good?
This is from Mike Robertson’s “10 Tips for Flawless Squattin’” article.
"The weight should be balanced over the mid-foot or shifted slightly towards the heel. Again, comfort is most important here. You want to find a technique you’re comfortable with and that will allow you to move the heaviest iron possible.
Keep in mind that if you get the weight too far towards the heel you?ll fall over backwards and lose coolness points. Also, if the weight gets shifted towards your toes you?ll get rounded over. Neither is conducive to moving heavy weights or your general health!"
I personally can’t even do bodyweight squats with the weight on my toes without it hurting my knees. Also, you should read through the articles in the archives then you’ll more than likely find the answers to your questions.
