Squat Form Check

I feel the most confident in my squat than any other lift. Wanted to see how it looks

I am posting my max 425 and 90% of it at 400 for any tips.

I was told my stance was too narrow and that I am going to hurt my knees the way I squat. I don’t see it.

here is 400x1 90% of max

Well I’m going to assume that my form is perfect and I shouldn’t change a thing…

looks good to me, just make sure your heels don’t lift off the ground when you ascend… Good lift though man…not even wearing a belt…nice

looks tight bro maybe a small bit of upper back rounding on ur first vid but thats it. strong lift bro!

You should actually assume that nobody is going to waste their time trying to critique a sideways squat.

That’s quite possible as well…I actually thought he was doing a rack dead at first, then I realized it was sideways.

It wasn’t like that on my computer. It’s always been like that when I post them. No one’s complained before, so I haven’t asked how to correct it.

I’ve watched and commented on many side ways videos on here. If you are too good to tilt your lap top or bend your neck a little, then don’t even worry about it.

Not saying I am an expert by any means, but didn’t see anything horrible. The real problem is a sideways shot done sideways doesn’t show much. You mention your stance width but I can’t tell how wide you actually are. Stance width I don’t think is as critical as tracking with the knees in line over the feet. Generally you can go heavier with a wider stance. Stance width has more to do with what muscles are activated. You depth looks fine and as mentioned, maybe a bit of rounding.

Go a little lighter, say 300 pounds and do 3-5 reps with a video once from the back and once from the side (preferably not sideways).

It is hard for anyone to have perfect form at the limit. You just want to make sure you have it on your lighter sets.

Dude, it’s a sideways video…meaning it’s a pain in the neck to watch (literally)…I 100% guarantee you will get more responses if you just make it upright. People will take you seriously when you take your inquiries seriously. I mean this in the most sincere way possible.

It didn’t look weird on my phone or my computer. Someone tell me how to fix it and I will.

But really, you guys can lift 4,5 and 600 pounds but grabbing your laptop with your left hand and tilting it on its side is impossible back breaking work?

anyways thanks for the responses.

…Yeah pretty cool sideways squat, gotta have a strong core for that kind of lift.

I have a 42" computer monitor.

I think if you post the vid into a youtube account and then copy the link into your messages it will cure your problems
