  • Squat depth check

    Hi, can I get a depth check on this please? Plus any other form comments if needed. This is 140kg for [email protected]

    Thanks

    You're making depth.

    You have a substantial squat morning going on. The bar moves substantially forward of mid foot once you ascend. Your knees are not shooting forward which is good.

    I'd record more reps and see if this is an issue at all weights. Just thinking about it and trying some different queues should sort it out. Try queuing leading with the chest not hip drive. Try thinking about keeping the bar over mid foot.

    RTS have shared quite a few thoughts on how to fix the chest fall pattern. They like pin squats.

        Depth is fine.

        Try to push with the legs. I think you're not using the quads enough, coming out of the hole.

        RTS = Reactive Training Systems (Jordan gets his coaching from Mike T. I think)

          Nice one thank you.

          Yeah I do find that on reps where I feel my knees shooting backwards and I have to make a conscious effort to keep them forwards I feel it a lot more in my quads (didn't feel my knees shooting back too much on this rep so didn't have to consciously focus on keeping them forwards). I'll make sure I focus on this for all reps regardless and this will hopefully help me activate the quads more. Thanks!

            The depth was fine on the squat. Not sure I agree with ozneil about the cause of your good morning squat (which I didn't think was that bad). I think you kept the bar over midfoot the whole time, but you shot your hips back slightly (at the 8 second mark, your butt goes backwards) and in order to keep the bar over midfoot you are to flatten your back angle (because if you had kept the same back angle after your hips went slightly back the bar would have been slightly behind midfoot). Considering it was a heavy squat I actually thought the form was okay--not great, but okay. If you do that for all reps it would be problematic but if you only do that when grinding, then I think that is something to work on, but not so urgent that I would change your training to work on it.

              Thank you - hadn't really registered the hips shooting back so will work on that for future, thanks again

                Try to keep your knees forward at the bottom to avoid excessive push back of the hips.
