Hey guys! After watching my mates training in the gym i realized that some of them can squat ATG without having to lean forward too much (unlike me). I have noticed that their lower leg forms a 60Âº angle with the floor when they squat; while mine is like 70-75Âº. They are also able to squat ATG without weight on a bar, or with olympic lifting shoes.
Their ankle is just more flexible than mine, i came to conclusion.
This problem is making me unable to rapidly get under the bar, squat with my torso straight, etc.
I have tried stretching my ankles in the seated calf rise machine. But it doesn’t seem to work. Does any of you had a similar problem than mine? do you have any stretches that effectively addresses this problem?
Thanks in advance and please excuse my poor english.
