Re: Squat causing back pains

Sometimes rounding of the back isn't flexibility but a strength issue. Make sure you really push the legs out on the way up and down and lock that back into place.

For me, to prevent me from pitching forward, I try to pull my elbows more under the bar and drive my back into the bar. Also, better ab stability will help.

You can drive from the hips, but if you do you have to have your gut pressurized so you don't tip forward.
