Correcting my squat form

I have started doing some reading on proper squat form and therefore have become more aware of myself while preforming a squat. Today I realized that after squating down on the way back up I have been mooving forward. I noticed this when the bar started bumping the rack even though I had taken a step back. Any suggestions on how to fix this...

Re: Correcting my squat form

Be conscious of engaging your posterior chain instead of relying on your quads. That's one of the the things I was doing and it was making my knee's shoot forward. Watching this Rippetoe video also helped me out. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yha2X...feature=relmfu (WFS)

Re: Correcting my squat form

Practice frankenstein squats. This will help develop upper back strength, and teach you to properly squat correctly. You could also google "Goblet squats" as it reinforces the same concept.

Remember hips first in the movement, and last to finish. Think of sticking your tailbone straight down and creating space with your hips to let your body sit down between your legs.

Find some ankle mobility drills on YouTube or Mobility WOD. They only take a few min of work each day and can make a huge difference in your squat form.
