So I lift in my garage and I have this huge mirror that for a month I decided to place it in front of my squat stand to help with form. It has helped with overhead presses and positioning for the snatch and clean.
So since it helped with those I thought this would help me make with my squat form in terms of making sure my knees are pushing out/not caving in and help with being able to keep my torso upright.
I removed the mirror today and did squats. My form felt completely off and wrong. I did maybe 60% of the weight I was doing on Monday and it felt ridiculous heavy. I felt like I was leaning over more and not as in control as I have been the past month.
Has the mirror just been playing tricks with my eyes? Or have I just been relying on it too much?
I know for sure moving forward I'm not going to use the mirror, but just wanted to know if anyone has had the same issue?
