Basically, my forward lean is pretty bad. Not as bad as it used to be, but still not so great.
I have a very short torso in comparison to my legs, so it seems that even with a lighter weight, I still have this leaning problem. I find it difficult to keep a strong arch at the bottom, which sometimes makes lighter weight hard to get out of the hole. Also if I lose my arch completely, obviously my back will compensate in the movement which I can’t have.
Background: I was working with a coach for a few months prior to January, and he had me doing a lot of box squats to work on my technique and teaching me to sit back more. Which was all great and everything, except I lost most of my feel for regular back squats, and I still lean forward even if my knees are parallel to my shins on a box.
So I know that I will inevitably have some lean but there is still definitely room for more improvement. I’m worried I’m going to miss lifts at my meet in 4 weeks unless I can find some way of correcting this.
Any help is very appreciated.
