I just started working out seriously again about a month and a half ago, I waited awhile to ask these questions because I wanted to make sure I’d stick with it. I am sticking with it so here are my questions.
Stretching seems important, but I have very little idea how to do it. Are there stretches more geared towards certain types of lifting patterns? or are they one type fits all? I’m mostly doing compound lifts, is there a certain type of stretching I should focus on?
Next is squatting, I feel like I am doing it wrong. I’m 6’3 and 345lbs, I have long limbs and a long torso. I’m finding that I need to adopt a very wide stance in order to do anything resembling a real squat, I also can’t go ass to ground, I can get my shoulders about to where my hips are in height but any lower than that and I lose my balance.
A general concern I’m having is that my right side is about an inch and a half lower than my left side, this is causing difficulty in racking weights and I’m also worried that the difference might cause muscular imbalances down the road. any suggestions or knowledge about this kind of thing would be greatly appreciated.
