When you unrack and get in the position to squat you are ‘dancing’ with the bar. You have posterior pelvic tilt in the bottom of the squat (your lower back rounds). You lose tension for depth. Could be inflexible hamstrings/glutes and/or weak lower back (for this weight) or just a technical issue.
Try shifting you upper body a little bit more forward while pushing your knees out more on the descent, see if this helps.
Focus on fixing this ‘problem’ before you put more weight on the bar, when you get it right the weight you have on the bar will explode up. [/quote]
I think the ‘dancing’ is just getting the manta ray “settled” a little better. I’ll check it again next time. Watching the "so you think you can squat showed me that big time. I’ll definitely work on it.
Shifting forward, meaning I need to lean forward a little more? Not so erect?
That’s why I posted here, I need to fix things before I hurt myself with more weight.
Thanks for your input.
