PR Squat 275

This is my PR for squat. It doesn't look like I went low enough on the last two reps but thats all I could notice, any advice would be appreciated.

Re: PR Squat 275

On the first rep, you let the bar crash down, try to control the descent a little bit more. Looks like you're squatting low-bar. Try to sit back a little bit more, keep your knees back as well as your ***. Depth looked okay to me, but I'd get a second opinion.

Re: PR Squat 275

Basically what he said. You're initiating the squat with knees, you want to start by pushing your a** back as far as possible.

Looks good, keep it up. You'll be doing 315 before you know it.

Re: PR Squat 275

Overall it looks good, but on reps 1 and 2 it doesn't seem like your lower back is set. I don't mean that you're rounding at the bottom, it just looks like it wasn't set to begin with. Anyone else seeing this? Maybe it's the t-shirt.

Re: PR Squat 275

Hey guys I tried what you mentioned, pushing my butt back, and I think it made a difference. Here's me doing 285. Does this look better?

ps Sorry about the weird border, it got put in when I was filming somehow and I couldn't get rid of it.

Re: PR Squat 275

Doesn't look too bad, but you initiate with your knees.
