Re: Has my squat improved?

1- ditch the belt

No can do. Spent too many days not walking due to my back problem to ditch the belt. I'll just keep practicing.

Re: Has my squat improved?

Yeah, for these weights you do not need the belt, but if you like it go for it As far as the video, I would agree your head is a bit low actually, but that is not the end of the world. It looks like you need to shove those knees out a bit more. That will make more room for your chest and allow you to get proper depth without so much strain at the bottom. It takes a lot of focused effort to acheive this at first, but once you get it it feels much better Keep working hard!!
