I’m wanting to improve my squat numbers. I was thinking of doing the Leg Phase of I,BB to do so. Would this be a good idea?
Maybe my form is just not that great?
You can see my squat is greatly lagging my deadlift.
Do you have any suggestions? I would really appreciate it, I want to squat 315 ASAP!
It looks like your back is coming forward a bit when you come up. You will overtrain your quads this way and place unnecessary pressure/stress on your back.
Here are some things you could try to improve your back squat technique:
(1) Get a foam roller and use it on your legs before squatting
(2) Activate your glutes with a swiss ball in the same manner as with the foam roller. Be sure to flex your hamstrings, quads, and glutes when you roll the ball forward and back. So you should have your upper back on the ground and lower back somewhat in the air to fully activate your muscles.
(3) Elevate your heels somehow when you squat (maybe put two 45 lb. plates on the ground and squat with only your heels elevated on the front part of the plates)
hope this helps,
