Re: back squat form check

You are not going deep enough, get at least to parallel. What's up with the video? Looks like it was filmed on a rocky boat...

Re: back squat form check

Looks pretty solid, just try to get lower. The crease of your hip is supposed to break parallel with the floor.

Lower back rounding is usually due to inflexible hamstrings. When the hamstrings are tight, if you go too low they pull your lower back under you. Stretching should fix it. Weight lifting shoes also help.

Re: back squat form check

Focus on keeping your chest up and I bet you money you'll find that you go deep enough doing everything that you are doing now. Your chest goes down significantly, focus on keeping your chest up and you'll be good.
