Hi all. I was wondering if anyone has any suggestions on how to increase squat depth? When I do squat it feel uncomfortable, even when I bodyweight squat. Even in a bodyweight squat I cannot achieve parallel. When I squat this is how it seems to go:
-As I go down I feel myself 'falling' forward a little
-As I am a few inches away from parallel I feel the front of my hips tighten right up. You could jump on my back with all your bodyweight and the only way I will go to parallel is if something tears; my hips are that tight
-As well when I am approaching parallel I feel my heels lift off the floor, which I then compensate with my back by rounding it
Bad, bad, bad, bad, bad
Hip mobility, tight calves and shoulder flexibility I assume are probably my main issues. Just wondering if anyone has any good routines/advice for helping this.
Thanks so very much.
