Re: OHS Check

A couple of comments. On the 155 video you go forward onto your toes on each rep. Perhaps check to ensure that the bar is over your midfoot. Also consider getting some different shoes like Chuck Taylors(flat) or weightlifting shoes. The running shoes with the cushion support are not ideal for squating. The 165 video looks pretty good except you go onto the toes again. The only other thing I would suggest is that you try for a deeper squat. You looked to be just at paralell. The lower you can go, with proper form, the better.

Re: OHS Check

yeah, finding the right depth is very difficult with OHS, get a partner to come watch you or a med ball you can put behind you as a marker for correct depth

Keep up the good work 165 is no small accomplishment!!

Re: OHS Check

I placed an 80lb dumbell behind me. I thought I was going deep enough for sure....

I just looked at your PR and depth is legit, you were just past parallel, that's enough.

What I would advise is working on your squat stance. It seems like your stance is a bit narrow + your feet are parallel. So when you reach failure, your knees tend to move towards the middle. Have you tried a slightly wider stance with your feet turned about 30 outwards ? In that position, your knees will be going in the same direction as your feet, and you'll finally be able to recruit more muscles in your hamstrings, adductors,... Squeezing the whole thing at the bottom

Re: OHS Check

To clarify my statement I did not intend to imply that you were not reaching parallel. I meant to inspire you to go past paralell towards *** to ankles.

Re: OHS Check

I love my Sambas! I can drive off my heels much better than off my squishy Saucony running shoes.

Re: OHS Check

Add a front view camera angle. One thing I notice not mentioned. Let your arms, and bar fall back a bit more. The bar should fall between your shoulders, and butt. Another words bar should behind shoulders, but in front of butt. Look at the line from bar down to butt. You may need to change your hand positions on the bar to accomplish that. The video shows the bar directly above your shoulders. Let it fall back behind your shoulders, but not past your butt. With proper bar placement you may have to reduce weight a bit. I wonder how far apart your hands are from one another, but can't tell with the camera angle.
