Squat Form Check


#1

Hey guys I just wanted to ask for a little critique on my squat form. Any recommendations on what I could do to tweak it would be great.


#2

Are you doing box squats to get used to squatting ?

Going to a lower depth in your squat will yield better results in the long term, depending on your goals.


#3

I'm doing box squats until I get my hip flexibility back. I've had problems with my right hip flexor so it needs some stretching.


#4

Bench is too high.

You need to sit back more, to keep your shins more vertical.

Thats an unnecessarily vicious lockout too.


#5

Haha I was just thinking the same thing...that is a unnecessarily vicious lockout


#6

Go deeper. Squats should be performed to parallel, whenever possible. Find some of those risers people put the platforms on, and use that to customize for your height.
