  • Form Checks - Main Lifts

    Hello, everyone!
    How are you?

    I'm currently doing The Bridge program.
    I'm pretty happy with the results of the program so far, I'm in the Week 6 of it and I already reached my goals for the year. I started doing weight training in March and I stipulated these weights to reach by the end of the year. I think I will surpass it since it has some weeks left in the program and I will continue to train after I finish it.

    However, I wanted to know if I'm doing my main lifts right, could you guys help me with a form check? I don't have any good instructor in the gym that I go and I don't have money for online coaching yet (planning on starting it next year), so, some tips would be amazing

    This is a video with my best takes so far in the main lifts:

  • #2
    Squat: Looks pretty good, your heels lift up which leads me to believe you might be a little forward (especially out of the bottom).
    Deadlift: looks good, you might be losing a VERY SMALL amount of back position when you initiate the pull. I don't know if I would even bother to fix this unless it gets worse as you pull heavier weights.
    Bench: Looks great, if you want to compete you could try a larger arch (to reduce range of motion and get more weight on the bar) if not (or if you don't like benching with a high arch) don't worry about it.
    Press: Looks good, very strict

    Overall it looks like you have a solid grasp on the movements. I would keep periodically taking videos as your lifts progress to make sure you are keeping good form like this (even if you just watch them back yourself).
