Yep -

Rule #1: practice how you plan to perform, including racking the weight - preferably on command

Rule #2: don't be a d0uche and dump the weight

Those are the only 2. It's in the handbook.

Re: PR Backsquat - Questionable Depth

Come on guys, this is Josephs thread looking for HELP. You want to debate this any further make a new thread.

Joseph, sorry for my part in the thread jacking. I agree with deeper. Like said, I'd hate to ''pr'' only to find out it was not to depth. It really will only take a session of deeper squats to get it down. I was there.

When I first stared videoing my squat I was to high, so I pushed the depth the next session and was good from there for depth. I would drop faster, confidence in my form. Plus less strain on the joints.

I agree with Nik's point of videoing. I do a daily squat, build up to ~90% for one rep, and I video that rep every day to make sure of ROM and technique. Now hitting full depth is basically natural. In the long run, it's better to do less weight with the best technique, since you aren't squatting for competition where you would want any advantage you could get.

I think you're right. I'm gonna spend some practice time getting more depth and stop being afraid of getting stuck in the hole. The long n short of it is that I'm not in it for the 600# backsquat, so I should spend the time getting perfect depth and form, and if I need to shed some weight to do that, so be it.

Thanks for the advice on squatting and not on bar dropping.

Not a problem, I am with you on good form. Just commit to the lift. Work a little lighter, like you warm up sets, drop in with confidence and power back out. It will come natural after a wile.

I really don't see you dropping any weight off the bar to get your form down. Just need to practice it and probably get it better.
