Really helpful. Thanks Scott.


I've also been struggling on supportive strength (keeping my knees out during squats). I'll get tired and my knees will suddenly collapse inward. I have long legs and this is taking some work. Is there any additional strengthening I can add for this?

I have a question regarding form. So, I've been squating with poor form for years and until now I'm starting to really care about form. 


I feel like my stomach isn't tight enough when I squat (and deadlift, and do dumbell curls) and my buttocks aren't hard enough either during the exercises. 


Is  there a way to train or like improve these  posture problems? 


Thanks!
