Hi All. I really love my squatting but always find something a bit akward. I feel it may have to do with flexibility (although I stretch extensively) and wondering if anyone can shed light on the topic.
When I squat I have very good form - it took a good year to get it right but finally got it nailed. I do it with varying foot positioning (ranging from narrow stance, pointing forward to wide stance, pointing outward). What I always find is that:
- I start with legs, feet, knees all symmetrical
- By the end of the set, I always see that my right foot is a good 5-10cm farther back, and pointed a lot more outward.
- This happens subconsciously all the time, no matter how hard I try to prevent it, no matter how much I focus on keeping it still.
- Accompanying this, I often find that as I go down, the left hip stays in position, but the right hip seems to move slightly backward too, almost causing the entire torso to rotate ever so slightly to the right.
This hasn’t affected my quad growth, but it still feels very weird and would really like to fix it. For reference, my right calf is, and has always been, MUCH smaller than my left, something I just can’t seem to balance out.
Any help/advice is appreciated,
