    What he was doing was not an Rippetoe squat. Rip teaching hip drive does equate to a horizontal squat. Rip teaches to maintain the back angle, not to let it go horizontally. The hips cue is just for initiating the squat out of the hole that’s it.

    Depth was good. Don’t over think depth Pat Hughes.

    Davidm you always reset. Always. That is a habit he has to practice no matter what. Always. Not resetting will cause you to rush. What you are doing is getting a breath and tightening up. That is paramount to getting strong.

    Thank you - it did feel deep and I thought it was too deep watching back, so will work on that.

    That was just in relation to you saying your were concentrating on staying upright and the tendency to high bar a low bar squat.

    One cue I found very useful, and not just for squatting, is just to focus on keeping the center of mass centered over the mid foot. It the cure for much bad form.
    Thank you Dave

    1. Reset to what? All his videos are LIGHT for him.
    2. If you've ever tried to coach anyone you'd know that "just do it better" after a certain point does nothing.
    3. There's a really good reason guys like Izzy and Mike T program front squats. It's this reason right here. Front squats help Riptonean squats A LOT. It's well documented.
    4. Elbow position is going to be different per individual and doesn't really make or break the squat.
    5. He looks plenty tight.

    Pat Hughes what you're calling an @8 is an @7 max. Probably an @6. If technical failure is @6 you probably need a technical intervention. Enter Front Squats.
    Thanks - not sure whose advice to follow, haha! I think I definitely do need to do some front squats regardless of my back squat anyway, as I literally have never done them so will start doing them.

    Do you think these are @7 based on bar speed?

    Better than last time. Your chest is sagging alittle. Don’t let it cave. Keep it high like a gorilla pounding his chest. It can help to draw your shoulder blades together to help keep the chest up. Learn to set your lower back. It’s not in extension when you start. The hips are better but still slipped alittle. Remember that the bar isn’t going up when the hips go backwards. The bar will go up when the hips go up. When you do that the back angle will be maintained “easier.” Make sure your forcing the knees out. You want them in line with your foot. Is the pressure felt mostly on your toes? If so make sure to push with the whole foot, I.E. more heel pressure. Use the specific cue “hips.” Say that one word to yourself. Try adjusting your gaze closer too. Only look about 3 to 5 ft out. This will keep it inline with your back more. If you can afford it get some coaching for three months or so. They’re really good here at BM. I’m not trying to be picky, trying to help get you strong.
    Thank you - will work on keeping my chest up. Pressure on the feet felt good to be honest, over the midfoot but will continue to focus on that.

    Pat Hughes. It’s more likely that you aren’t realizing that the back has to go up too. Even though you cue the hips out of the hole the back still has to maintain its angle going up. For the love of God stop forcing your elbows down. Maintain them in line with your back. You may be shifting your ass back and not up. And stay tight don’t get loose. Flex all your muscles take a big breath and keep it that way. Don’t stop driving till you are at the top. Drive drive drive. Front squats won’t help. Getting better at the low bar technique will help you get better. Reset you weights back alittle too. Work back up 5 lbs at a time. And pose this question to Jordan Feigenbaum

    *Your feets moving when you re-set. Stop that. Find your stance and keep them stuck to the floor throughout the set.
    *Dont rush, theres no hurry.
    *If you're squatting low bar, don't concentrate on staying upright. - you can always just squat high bar if you prefer.
    *Bar looks to be shifting forward slightly of mid foot on the accent. Some tempo / pause squats can help with staying tight and balanced.
    *Try keeping your elbows more aligned with your torso, or 'pinned to your sides'.
    * Write a few cues on the back of your hand if you must. Doesn't have to be War & Peace, but in the absence of a coach yelling instruction, it can be helpful.

    Thats all I got.
