About the hard to see part, I tried to do my best, but that seems to be the best I can do with the equipment around my basement…actually I just thought of how to move the camera up more, but the power rack will still block the view of my back and lighting really can’t get better, I don’t know any way to prevent that.
I’m going to drop the weight again to about 230 or so and work my way back up to 265 and hopefully go past that. I think the weight is to heavy to keep my back straight. I’ll see, I’ll film myself today and compare my 230 lb squats to my 265 lbs. I expect the back rounding to not happen.
I probably won’t post the video because it takes a long time on my computer plus the lighting will be bad so it probably won’t show up very well on youtube.[/quote]
Yeah be careful I remember doing rippetoes and just tweaking my back from increasing weight to fast and letting my form turn to shambles. I mean it’s normal for your lowerback to take some sort of beating.
Yet it sounds like your lowerback is taking too much stress. Better to back off like you said and concentrate on form or give front squats a go also.
Doing any mobility drills/foam rolling before you lift?
Try this one courtesy of mr. Joe Defranco:D it’s one I use on lowerbody days. works wonders with some foam rolling try it out and let me know what you think
