I’m a newb with almost a year training, and now I’m doing front squats because my piece of shit gym doesn’t have a squat rack, only the smith coat rack, which I refuse to use. So now I’m doing cleans and front squats (70kg now).
The problem I think is my upper back, same problem when I was doing normal squats too. It’s not my legs (leg pressing 2 times the 70kg+bodyweight(98kg) with no problem), it’s not my lower back (deadlifting 150kg). I still don’t know much about weightlifting, but I’m almost sure it’s my upper back. When I deadlift I see a bit of a curve in the upper back, and I looked in the mirror today front squatting with only the bar and I still had a big curve up there, with the low back fine.
Is this what it is? If so, what should I do to correct it, traps? I think my traps are up to par though, I shrug with 50kg dumbells with no problem. I don’t know what I should do.
I have the strength of an intermediate bodybuilder in every exercise listed except the squat, where I am between “untrained” and “novice”, leaning toward “untrained”. WTF am I doing wrong?
