I tried a lower bar setting as in the video below
not sure how it came out, its very uncomfortable. maybe i could go with something in-between as my shoulder flexiblity isnt great so dont want to wear it all on the wrists.
I wonder is my leaning forward when it gets harder due to upper back or core weakness? Still trying to find the best squat style for my structure I think.
Would be great if you get a chance to look please! [/quote]
Well, I would like to say that it is a weak upper back/core, but you tell me that your front squat numbers are almost the same as your back squat numbers, the frotn squat requires more core and upper back strength. Seeing a video of your front squat might help.
After seeing the video I’m thinking maybe it is a thoracic spine mobility issue.[/quote]
Forgive me for chiming in here - a few things I also noticed:
When you are unracking the bar, you shrug it up, instead of rocking the chest up.
As you come out of the hole in the bottom position, try to drive the chest up and hips through.
This will take a few lbs. off your total weight for a few WO’s, but will give you better overall stimulation and results. Pounds will add up later
with improved form and position.
