So I have always had a problem with telling if im squatting correctly or not (and do other lifts correctly). When I squat, I hit the bottom and start coming up. When I start coming up, my weight always shifts forward.
My heels don’t leave the ground (I think), but most of the weight goes onto the ball (not sure if its called the ball, the part of your foot before the toes, i’ll refer to it as the ball though) of my foot. I always do this and I am wondering if it is a major problem.
My hamstrings are always very sore after squats, so im pretty sure im using them right.
When I squat, I seem to use my calves a lot because of going forward. So is this alright if I squat like this? Should I drop weight and put most of the weight on my heels?
i really hate dropping the weight, since every time I start lifting and doing heavier weights I seem to have a form problem. (doing 3x5 195 right now for squat, Starting Strength) Should I continue lifting this way and not worry to much about it? The way I keep having to reset, I’ll never get to any high amount of weights.
I’m 6 ft with fairly long limbs, and squats feel awkward for me. I’ll try posting a video of last weeks squats (180lbs I think) later. I don’t have time right now, I gotta head out.
