View Full Version : New Squat Form Check
03-01-2010, 12:39 PM
First 2 work sets from my workout today @ 210 pounds.
First set looks like my knees were sliding forward a bit and a little back rounding, so i widened my stance a little in the second set, which seemed to do the trick.
In both sets, your knees slide forwards for the entire duration of the descent. What you want is for your knees to get to that point in the first third of the descent.
Other than that they're fine. Keep ramping it up.

I can't see a difference in the knees between the 210 sets and the 185 set.
The only thing I can see was in the 210 set I put my stance wider and tried to shove my knees out more.
In this video, your knees move forwards for the entire descent. See how far forwards they are at the bottom of your squat? You want them to reach this spot earlier in the descent, and from that point on in that rep your knees shouldn't go forwards anymore. In the other video you did this.

Vibrams /= lifting shoes

vibrams are all i got right now. had them from before i started training. don't have money for lifting shoes, so i assume being as close to barefoot as possible is the next best thing.
i'll get lifting shoes once i have the cash to afford them.
