Back Squat technique

Hi guys,

I recently managed to get a new PB with 100kg for 2 reps. It's a max rep so form isn't 100% but it would be great to get some feedback on it.

here's a link to the video:

thanks guys

Re: Back Squat technique

Not too shabby. I think you could keep your upper back tighter by looking more up and not down.

Re: Back Squat technique

For efficiency you'd probably want to take less steps in and out. Why waste the energy and keep it for the squats.

I think you just need to be tighter from head to toe and you seemed to come forward a when coming out of the bottom. Lock those feet into the ground, no wiggling.

Something to try, might not work, is to hip hinge/hips back more. This might get more stability and not get you tipping forward out of the bottom.

Re: Back Squat technique

You lose your neutral spine as soon as you break parallel with your hips and end up with some pretty significant lumbar flexion at the bottom. With enough loading and reps, this could result in back injury. You need to work on hip and ankle mobility most likely and really fight to keep the hips from tucking under at the bottom of your lift. Don't overarch, but fight to keep neutral.

Check out Kelly Starrett's vids on setup position where you:
- squeeze glutes
- brace abs around it
- screw feet in to create torque
and then lock abs on the way back and down into the squat, keeping the distance between ribcage and pelvis the same..

This, It looked good, but you have room for more if you tighten up your form.

Knees out, you can see you feet rolling in, push your knees out.

Tighter core, when you drop in, keep the core CRAZY tight and chest up.
