Recently, Ive been evaluating my lifting form and taking a step back in weight to get full ROM and establish good tempo and control. This is mainly in the squat and DL.
In the squat, I can barely even get to parallel without putting the weight way onto my toes. In DL I have to lean forward a bit to get to the bar once Im down as far as I can sit.
Is this a flexibility issue? Or is it that some people are just put together differently? Im a short guy(5'7"), still have a small gut, and when I squat down my knees and feet naturally flare out at 45 degree angles. Is more stretching the answer or do I just deal with what I got?
