fucking hell mate, LOOK UP/STRAIGHT AHEAD WHEN SQUATTING there are loads of online reasources for teaching you form, look for them [/quote]
You’re looking down on the back squats. Should look more straight ahead like in the front squats, might not be a coincidence that your upper back isn’t rounding in your front squats.
I also see a bit of lower back rounding at the bottom, in all 3 videos
You are starting your descent with your knees(in the Back Squat Vid). Don’t do that. Tink about your hips. Stretch your hammies and back well before you even touch a bar. You are not hitting even near parallel in the BS.
As already mentioned, look up(I find forward is best for me but I suck ast squatting). Chest up, abs tight.
How tall are you? I’m no expert but it looks like you have shitty squatting leverages[/quote]
I’ve been following Mark Rippetoes advice to pick a spot about 6 feet in front of you and focus on it. I’ll def try looking ahead tonight at the gym
I’m 6 4… def shitty leverages, but what do ya do, it’s how I’m built.
-Head up, look forward not at the floor. Keep that chest up.
-Pull your hips back at the start of the motion then sit down into the squat - you seem to be leaning forward slightly because you’re not pulling your hips back. That slight forward lean gets worse the lower down you go cause its pushing you into the floor.
-Your arms shouldnt be horizontal, they should be vertical.
I think if you sort the position of your arms out, and not let the weight push you down, you’ll sort a lot of problems out.
Also, try a slightly wider stance and see how that feels. Feet pointed out slightly, pushing the knees out and not letting them fall in.
Hope this helps.[/quote]
How would my arms be vertical? I don’t get this…?
The sitting into it makes sense. Will try that as well.
you need to be actively arching/extending your back, and initiating the movement (at least on the back squat) by pushing your ass back first.
big chest, lumbar arched
when you’re front squatting, your torso should be much more upright.
I always feel like I’m going to fall over when I arch my back, guess it’s mobility again.
Where you from in Ontario?
