So over the past two weeks I’ve tried to transition from a powerlifting squat to a oylmpic style squat, but i’m having lots of trouble.
I can’t get the depth easily at all, I have to slowly inch my way down and as a result I have no ‘bounce’.
It’s also destroying my right knee, only 3 squat sessions in and now I can barely put any weight on it. It used to be a hip pain on the right side in the powerlifting stlye but now its turned into a knee pain that i cant ignore.
I squat in do-win shoes, I’ve modified the heel so they are 1.25 inches now.
I turn my knees out, I try and keep my toes pointing forward, as per info on mobility wod: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=46EDDftgFZI
I also can’t hold that asian style squat for longer than 40 seconds, it makes my knees hurt like fuck.
Any advice? Any particular stretches I should do? My ankle mobility is very good so I’m thinking it’s a hip issue?
