I am at my wit’s end with this shit.
No matter what I do or how hard I try my hips lean to the right when I sit back.
Doesn’t matter what weight, if I’m doing even a RDL WITHOUT A BAR or any weight, my hips go back towards the right. I tried so many times to fix it I don’t know how.
I have okay mobility I’m able to squat ass to grass no problem.
I’ve had to deload now to work on form and I just can’t fucking do it, I keep trying to push with my left but shit man that makes even a measly weight like 80kg feel like a house. And it’s still asymmetric.
Here’s what I noticed:
My left knee gets shoved out more than my right.
Even when standing still with the weight on my back my center of balance is slightly towards the right leg.
When I sit back to back squat properly I sit to the right.
And today was the straw that broke the squatter’s back.
Seriously, today I almost fell on my ass while doing this shit because I was trying to get it right. Good thing my spotter caught me or else BOOM SHAKALAKA. I never use a spotter but this time I did. If this ain’t an Act of God I don’t know what is.
Fucking hell, man.

Athletic background: Aikido for three years and then Judo a little competitively at 72kg for a year or so but had to quit temporarily and switch to weight training till I fix my back up with lots of strength.
Injuries: Spondylolisthesis - first grade.
And an Unidentified Fucking Ouchie (UFO) on my left hip/lower back that has been giving me shit for AGES I have no fucking clue what it is, a recent MRI says my back is clean, nothing but the spondy in there, it’s bearable but inconvenient as hell.

Seriously guys you gotta help me I’m about to flip a MAJOR bitch now.
Here’s video at 102.5kg.
…and later at 70 when I tried to fix this shit.
And here’s video with a shim that kind of made it a little less pronounced. The last set is without it.
But my hips are still tilted, and my left knee is still shoved out more, and I still bend over with my hips to the right.
I’m also poor and I go to a public gym, and I can’t afford a tripod so the videos are shit and people walk around, I understand and deeply apologise for my inadequacies.
I stretch my glutes, hamstrings, adductors and I stretch in the bottom position of the squat ass to grass every single day.
And I don’t do any cardio.
What the fuck is going on?
