Here's the quick version of my story...lifted all throughout high school as a football player, started running after high school and did that whole thing for about three years (went from 190 pounds to 160 pounds, and was actually a pretty good runner), but have recently returned to lifting off and on for the past two years. I have finally gotten into a consistent routine and have been seeing some decent strength gains, and am back up to 185-190 pounds.
- bench press - 250
- squat - 280
- deadlift - 300
- press - 155
My present issue is my squat form. I have taken tons of videos of myself squatting and feel like I have gotten to a decent place with my form, but I always like to stay true to myself so I want to see what you guys think. I have posted a video of myself squatting 260 pounds for four reps.
The questions I have for you guys:
- am I going deep enough?
- is the forward movement of my knees really a big deal? I have read so many differing opinions on this matter. Personally, I have never had any knee pain whatsoever, and several of the videos I have watched of people squatting have clear forward tracking of their knees over their toes.
- any and all critique would be gladly taken!
