Been trying to dial down my squat form. Working a ton on ankle and hip mobility, but there are still a couple things I notice wrong:
-Basically anything below ~parallel in the squat feels completely out of my control. I’m very slow out of the bottom, and was given the advice to just dive bomb it and ride the bounce I get. It doesn’t feel very stable or safe and I haven’t been able to do it with more than ~135lbs (hence the chains I’m using)
-I notice that my knees shoot forward at the bottom. Sometimes this can even cause me to come up on my toes. I’ve been thinking about investing in Olympic Shoes, though I don’t know if that would even help at all.
-I’m leaning over a lot and my butt seems to shoot back and up before everything else. I train the shit out of my hamstrings and glutes in supplemental work, maybe I need to actually do something for my quads?
Any advice would help. I’ve been stuck between 205-225lbs forever.
