An overhand grip helps if you have trouble getting the bar low.
Just make sure this is a legal grip! Sorry couldn’t resist

OG - Do you mean your toes are coming off the ground and your weight is moving to your heals?
You can’t run fast enough!
I think she means she is coming up on her toes.
I find I will go forward on my toes from time to time when I’m pushing a heavier weight than I’m used to. It’s a mental thing that I don’t take time to set up properly. I move into it too quickly to get the squat overwith.
If we don’t see you around Ruggerlife … it was nice meeting you.

Ouro, It was nice meeting you as well.
…but since I’m already going down…I might as well point out that if the problem is shifting her weight forward onto her toes, that Court is well versed in this technique and should be able to provide insight.
I’m not sure how I got roped into this, but I will hunt you down and I will kill you. First though, I think I will tape you to the ground and practise squatting on you. I’ll let you be the judge of if I’m still going forward on my toes or if I’m driving through my heels. If you’ll recall however, I DID take my head out of my ass and managed to come back and hit my 3rd attempt with ease.
Enjoy your last moments with the family.
I approve of must things that involve duct tape, but then I am a MacGyver groupie
So Court, you recovered from the dreaded toe plant?
I did. My handler gave me shit, told my I was forward on my toes (which I totally felt on my way up) which is why I didn’t hit depth. I had tears in my eyes because I was so pissed off at myself for missing an easy weight, then I pulled it together and made my 3rd at a slightly higher weight. It will be the last time I miss an attempt at a meet for being forward on my toes let me tell ya…
