    Default Form check for DL & Squat....

    Didn't see any guidance on if we should post two different form checks in one thread, so hopefully this is okay.

    Sorry for the (lack of) brightness. I can redo the video at a straight 90-degree (like the DL) if needed.

    VIDEO #1: SQUAT

    I reduced my weight significantly, after noticing I was nowhere near parallel. The biggest issue I *THINK* I see is that I continually creep forward. It was MUCH worse last week... Since I have nearly no ego, I have no issues starting from scratch (very low weight) and getting it right. I also am fairly certain I favor my right leg, which you can't see from the angle at all. Just a feeling/perception I've got as I come up/out of the squat.

    VIDEO #2: DEADLIFT

    I had originally used the hex-bar, but changed to traditional, increasing weight very slowly, since I've got a history of back injuries. My shoe lace knot is just about directly under the bar as I set up, feet are shoulder width, toes out slightly. I have a feeling my last rep or two has some issues, but I'm not exactly sure what those are. After practically never doing DLs in my life, I enjoy doing them.

    Thank you for any help/assistance.

    Do not post above-parallel squats on this forum.

    For the deadlift - you are not setting your back properly at the bottom. Squeeze the chest up hard, arch the low back
