Anyone have any opinions on how to fix the following problem?
I’m finding that as I progress up in weight for my squat that I begin to sway/lean/tilt forward. Is this a problem that can be fixed by training a certain muscle or is it more so that I need to focus on my form? I think my form is pretty decent with this exception and it only seems to happen when the weight increases, ex:
5 sets, 4-10 reps per.
Set 1: 135lbs x 10
Set 2: 155lbs x 8
Set 3: 175lbs x 6
Set 4: 195lbs x 4 (problem starts here)
Set 5: 205lbs x 3 (continues here)
I’m in the habit of using a belt for the last 2 sets, for better or worse. Not sure if this matters, but I wear trainers, planning on getting some chuck taylors soon.
Today my spotter mentioned that I was doing good deep reps, but pointed out my tilting problem was noticeable. Whenever I have someone check my form, they say it’s good, but it’s always at a lower weight, ex 135lbs, when I ask them to check.
Does this mean I’m going too heavy and should focus on form, then increase weight?
