    Squat and Deadlift form check

    July 20, 2017, 12:16 pm

    Hey, can some one take a look at my squat and deadlift?

     

     

    I feel that on the squat my back isn't as straight as it should be, I also find that I have trouble keeping the weight over mid-foot. Finally I really dont like the way I look up as I complete the lift. What do you think?

     

     

    Again my upper back looks like it rounding, before I recorded this video I was lifting with my hips high and when I took the weight of the bar my lower back would round, I was told to lower my hips to remedy this which it has but I've heard that you're meant to start the lfit with hips high. Hope this makes sense

     

    Cheers

    yoyoyo! Well first of all you can add the actual videos by clicking the VIDEO ICON.. I edited your post to show the videos :-D

     

    SQUAT: looks like to me as you go from BOTTOM to TOP yoour elbows shoot "back" which causes you to lean forward and then your knees kinda buckly in. You need to focus on keeping your elbows under your wrists so you are not pushing the barbell into your neck. Maybe lower the weight and focus on these two things so you can make proper adjustments.

     

    DEADLIFT: Doesnt look that bad at all.. but there is no need for the should retraction at the top. Your shoulders should be hanging as low and neutral as possible from the start. ALSO, if you want more power through the hips you need to start doing DEFICIT DEADLIFTS. This will change your Deadlift game for life! check it out!
