    Me again! I was told on my last video to lean over more on the descent, so I have been working on that. I have gained some bodyweight and continue to work on that as well.

    You need to drive your hips up harder and longer.

    Your over-flexing your wrists. They need to be straight and tangent to the bar, not wrapping around it with the knuckles on top. This will produce elbow and shoulder pain in the long run.

    Good luck on the weight gain. Keep it up.

    What do you mean by longer?

    Thanks for the help!

    You're cutting off your hip drive prematurely by raising your chest too much. Does that make more sense?

    What Andrew said. I think he could also lean over a little sooner.

    Look at your first move out of the bottom of the squat and how your back gets more horizontal (especially last two reps). Try to go down and up with that angle for as long as you can.

    Yes, lean over sooner and more.

    And EAT! You‘re still skinny as hell. How many calories are you eating and how is your weight progressing in the last 2-3 months?

    Copy that. How long should I wait between sets? I've been doing five minutes. Is that too long or not long enough?

    Bump it up to 6 and see how it goes. Wolf wrote an article about rest between sets you might find interesting.
