Squat form check up

Still working the LP and wanted to see if I was still getting it right.
This is the 3rd set of 3x5 @ 220lbs.
Thanks!

Re: Squat form check up

Overall very solid. Great depth.

I noticed your wrists were bent back, when the weights get heavier this might cause some discomfort. SS people like hands almost on top of the bar pinning it to your back instead of holding it in your wrists.

I wonder when the weights get tough for you, if you'd benefit from shoving your butt back a little more.

These looked pretty comfortable for you.

Thanks a lot, I am definitely trying to focus on the wrist bending, it used to be really bad. I tried to correct it on the 3rd or 4th rep but I will definitely keep focusing on it. So what does shoving my butt back more do/help?

Re: Squat form check up

For your hands it should be a pretty clear adjustment. You shouldn't have the bar in the palm of your hand if you want to try the pinning style. Instead it's more like your hand is draped over the bar and then pins it in place, it does not wrap around. The nice thing is that it doesn't strain the wrists. But if you prefer to wrap around, just be aware of the trade off.

In regards to getting butt back, as the weight gets heavier it helps keep a balance between the muscles of the posterior chain and anterior chain. This way you have more muscles helping you squat. If you lean to forward, you rely more on your quads and deny yourself the benefit of the posterior chain.
