I have been seriously weight training for about three years total. Sometimes I am forced to take longer breaks that I would prefer due to my school schedule. Before that, in undergrad, I rowed crew.
My current weight routine focuses on DL's Squats, and Bench, with weighted Pull Ups to even things out.
I usually weigh between 165 and 175 and hope to begin competitive powerlifting at 165 in a few more months (doubt I could hit a solid 181).
Sorry for the long intro, but I figured a little background might help.
My problem is when I drop down for my squats (A to A), I can not keep my knees pointed in a single direction. That is to say, my legs sort of bow in and out. I am not sure if my description is clear, but clearly I am having a stability issue that could develop into a more serious problem.
Even if I lift less weight, the problem remains the same. I am thinking maybe my hams are too tight from rowing? Any suggestions?
