    You're really getting forward onto your toes both at the bottom, heels consistently coming up off the floor and sometimes during the drive up. Stay on the middle of your foot the entire time by keeping your knees and hips further back and not letting them slide forward or letting your knees cave in at the bottom or during the ascent. Yes, you're depth is about 1-2 inches too high.

    Adding to KangaJoo, narrow your stance aboit three inches. Also, resist the urge to lift your head. Read Bill Hannon's thoracic extension article.

    Hallo, i been progressing my LP in the Squat and i recorded my self again today , would appreciate some feedback.



    Let me try and critique my form having in mind the previous feedback you guys gave:

    1)regarding depth i need more
    2)there is some elevation of the heel not as bad as the first form check but still, this means that the weight is not in the middle of the foot, but iam not sure maybe iam over analyzing it.
    3) regarding stance as mentined by Jeff Illingworth previously i think my stance is more narrow
    4) regarding thoracic extension i think i have improved but iam not sure.
    5) i also wanna add that the weight felt more stable in my upper back when i compare it with 3 months ago , i dont feel my hands do much stabilization work to do , and my golfers elbow is almost nonexistant

    Knees out HARD. The lower part of your left leg should look vertical. That will help with depth.
