Squat Form Check: Attempt 4

Comments so far in other threads have been invaluable. I'd appreciate any others as I try to clean up my form. With my heavier sets, my knees are still sliding forward a bit at the bottom, even when I concentrate on keeping them fixed. Any mental prompts that would help that issue would be great.

Here is my best set of squat (wfs):

Here is a slightly messier set (wfs):

Also, any comments on my deadlift, now that I'm increasing weight (wfs):

Thanks!

Re: Squat Form Check: Attempt 4

you know even your messy set looks pretty decent IMO. There is nothing major that I saw with the squats that I would worry about. Just keep increasing and working hard

Oh and Deadlifts look reasonable too. I think you could stand to squeeze that chest up a bit harder before you lift, but generally pretty good

Nice work

Re: Squat Form Check: Attempt 4

Seconded on the squats. Your only problem is that weight is too light for you, but I'm sure you'll fix that!

One nit-picky: your hands are under the bar. Try to keep your wrists in alignment with your forearm and your hands palm down over the top of the bar. The bar will stay in place when you raise your elbows. That will give you a tighter back, and help prevent elbow pain as the weight goes up.
