What is the tie between the two. Its seems like I have always struggled to do any decent amount of weight on the regular back squat. I can do machine hack squats, and can somewhat do front squats, but back squats have always owned me.
It seems like I cant progress. Well lately I have noticed a lingering lower back pain and started reading around. I found that my pain was caused by extremely tight hip flexors.
I have been stretching them for the last week a little bit extra and have really noticed an improvement in the way my back feels. Could this have been hindering my progress with the back squat? Just not sure how they tie together.
I also think I lack some glute activation, but just curious about the relationship between the hip flexors and squat. Thanks guys.
