Re: Squat form check please

You hovered just above parallel and then came up. You need to go deeper--get that hip crease below the knee.

You looked a little loose throughout the body, keep the body fairly tense. Your grip should be firm or pressing the barbell into your shoulders. Your shoulders should be squeezing the barbell in place and then you should fill your abdomen with air (not your chest) to have a strong core as you descend.

When you descend, I thought you did well in pushing your hips back. In addition to pushing your hips back make sure you push your knees out, this will make depth better. When you come up try to keep the weight back on the midfoot or for the brain think about keeping it on the heels.

Of course, this was from seeing just one rep. Maybe a 5 rep set could give us more info.
