Well like I said as long as you are maintaining good form the best you can the back will get stronger as you go that is the nature of lifting.
As far as having dysfunction you would be in the minority if your body worked well. One of the authors of an article within the last month had horrible form, so its pretty prevalent.
As far as doing front squats I dont really know what your talking about. If you can front squat well, you can back squat well. Front squats just HIDE problems better and make it harder to tell there is an issue but its still there.
If you can do any leg exercise properly you can do back squats properly its all the same. But with back squats you get loading on the back as well.[/quote]
I see. So as long as maintain good form the best I can, then my form will get better over time the more times I lift.
Also, I see what you and nighthawks are saying in that fixing a faulty recruitment pattern or the inability to maintain good form under heavy loads should only take as long as the being able to rehabilitate an injury. Right?
One more thing, I’ve heard that front squats actually show more problems than back squats, because front squats require more core stability/strength and good shoulder stability/strength in order to handle otherwise the load or the weight will end up falling too far forward to where it’ll drop off of you.[/quote]
Depends on the person, but in general, back squats are going to show many more problems than front squats. You are sitting into your posterior chain on a back squat and most people dont have one. You can look pretty good on a front squat and it can be complete shit. It can take a pretty good eye to spot problems there sometimes.
But back squats can look better, it depends on the person.
As far as heavy loads go. There is going to be a point where EVERYONE will start to fall apart. It just depends on where you want to call it. Ideally you would maintain close to perfect form until you hit a weight that couldn’t move, but even then your form would be fine you just couldnt move it. You see this alot in top level olympic lifters and powerlifters. They get stuck but they will not waiver on form much.
Stop over thinking it. You need to get a good corrective exercise program and go from there. The issue is if you can’t squat properly with a weight that doesnt even challenge your strength. Which is most people. Then they just keeping adding weight to the bar.
