I have the same problem. Hasn’t hindered/injured me yet, but playing around with foot position and feet angle helped a little bit.
Letting my knees move in a little bit actually lets me move faster when I’m front squatting, which I don’t quite understand.[/quote]
It’s a quad thing. a lot of olympic lifters do this, some elite ones intentionally. I am with NK on this, if you are an experienced vet it may be a personal thing. (I would never train newb to do it though).[/quote]
I’m inclined to agree. In fact, the reason I don’t squat Westside style like Dave Tate and Louie Simmons suggests is to take stress off my hips since they’re most delicate part of me when it comes to heavy lower body lifting. This is why I’ve adopted a style closer to that of a WL squat. In fact, most raw lifters don’t squat like they do in Westside, although that’s not to say it’s necessarily wrong to do so.
I want most of the stress on my quads and and back because experience has taught me they’re much sturdier, but I do think the sweep in I have up there is excessive and so is the middle and upper back rounding on my DL.
Do you know what Olympic Lifters do to fix excessive knee cave in for they’re lifts? I’ve seen Oly lifters do paused squats so I might do that… but I’m not sure if that’s why they do them.
