Hi alll

I wonder if i can ask you guys about my squat form, you all gave such good advice with my deadlift so i might as well get my squat good as welll.

Thanks guys

hi Aaron.You'll probably get clearer advice but to me it looked like your feet were a little too wide,bring them closer to shoulder width aprt.
Knees tracking forward.Try and keep the shins vertical as possible which may help you get a deeper squat,unless thats a flexibility issue.
Can't see your top half so don't know about that.

Second what Peter has written. As an old school powerlifer, I would recommend you "sit back" more. As Peter mentioned, you're knees and shins are going forward. I, personally, recommend that people not only get their shins as vertical as possible that they overexaggerate the weight distribution onto their heels. I've even gone so far as to recommend to lift the toes during the descent to force the body to sit back with the shins near vertical.

Hope that helps?

All the best,
