Re: Squat Form Check

Good improvements. I think I like your 95lb set better than the 45.

It's ok for your knees to move a little forward.

Ideally you want your weight evenly distributed on your foot of felt midfoot, but when people are tipping forward/leaning on their toes emphasizing the heel can correct that problem--which does help get the hips back and work the post chain.

On your most recent video, I was wondering if your bar might be too low. Hard to say for sure. Does it feel locked in place?

Re: Squat Form Check

Solid squat, johnathon. A lot better, in my opinion. Add some weight now and work the same form.

Re: Squat Form Check

Ive been going up in weight recently and maxed out at 225#. I have a video of it but the angle is a bit tough. I didn't get my feet in the shot just a side angle which looks a little awkward.

If there is anything you can tell from this video let me know please. I almost get stuck in the bottom but pull through. The squat actually felt really good as my core and everything seemed super stable just didn't bounce out of the bottom quick enough. My depth has always been superb and I would like to keep it that way.

Thanks
Jonathan

Re: Squat Form Check

Depth was goodl.

I think the bar might be too high on your shoulders.

Looks like you start with knee bend, start with hip bend let the knee bend follow soon after.

Push your knees out on the way down and up so your butt/pelvis can pass through your hips and legs easier.

Keep a tension in the entire body.
