I’m new on here and don’t know if I’m doing this correct so bare with me!
I just wondered if any of you have some good pointers to building back my squatting confidence after a mishap I had a few months ago. Not sure if this has happened to anyone else or not but I was setting a new Single PR, walked the bar out no probs and went down into the squat and came back up. During the final few inches of lockout the bar took me forward and literally crashed down over my head onto the safety racks. I train alone but in a good rack at home. I wasn’t injured or anything but I found the whole incident quite daunting and its really put me off squatting heavy recently.
I think I failed the lockout as I was too concerned with walking/getting the bar back into the rack. I must have started the walk back in before properly completing the lift and lost balance and the bar took over. On a few previous lifts I was really starting to have to struggle to walk/waddle the bar back in also with all my energy going into the actual squat.
Does anyone have any tips on rebuilding my confidence with it again and not worrying about getting it back into the rack? Also on how to build strength in the walk out/In?
Any feedback at all would be really appreciated as my lack of squatting has hit my Deadlift pretty hard also.
