    Squat form check high bar

    August 5, 2018, 7:17 pm

    I know I have a little bit of twisting on the last rep as I think my left shoulder wasn't as tight as it should be.

    @razor Your form doesn't look bad. But do you think you could get a bit lower? More Ass To Grass?

    Looks pretty solid! Your bar path is really stable and right where it needs to be. Looks like you’re “pushing the floor away” and moving your hips up first to get out of the hole. Well done!

     

    Make sure you’re fully extending at the top of the movement. In your first and third rep in particular, you stop before reaching full extension. That places stress on your lower back since you’re starting your next rep from a slightly bent-over position. It’s easier to make sure you’re solid for your next rep when everything beneath the weight is stable. The cue I use is to squeeze my glutes when I reach the top. That pushes my hips through and completes the range of motion.

    Yep i'm definitely working on that for sure. My hips are tight but I'm working on it. Using the couple mobility routines you've shown in your videos!

    thanks for the feedback... I'll focus on fully extending at the top. Also I'm sure I'll be pausing between each rep pretty soon as this weight goes up. Adding 5 lbs each time I go and I'm squatting 3 times a week.

    @razor Great! Even lower the weight if you have to, maybe during one of the 3 squat sessions you have each week you could just go quite light and really focus on getting through a full range of motion. Make sure you do those mobility exercises every day too, not just on the days you squat to help improve your hip mobility. Maybe even a little bit of ankle mobility as well.
