    Hi everyone,

    That'd be great if I could get a form check please.

    Male, 35 years old, started SS 2,5 months ago, almost 3 months.
    Squat from 103 lbs to 257 lbs x 5 x 3
    Still progressing but trainings are now getting pretty challenging, especially the squat, hence why the form check.
    Weight at the start 178 to now 202 lbs, Iím 186 cms (6 ft 1).

    3 sets of 5 with 3 different angles:

    Thanks in advance.

    Alexis

    I have read it. I canít really see what was wrong with the filming angles though. I would appreciate a little more explanations so I know what to do. Thank you.

    Hey Alexis,

    Sorry I didn't realize your first vid had multiple angles, but yes like Pete said this is better.

    1) Your hips are moving back first, and then you are bending your knees causing the knees to slide forward too far. Make the hips and the knees break at the same time. You may have to think about making the knees bend first to over correct.

    2) It looks like your low back could get tighter. Arch your low back(over extension) like you would in the DL. Big held breath. A belt would help

    Hi Ryan,

    Thank you very much for your feedback.

    1) I knew something was going wrong here but couldnít really tell what. Next training is tomorrow so will see how it goes.

    2) Good, I didnít realise that. I ordered a belt last week, so itís on its way!

    I appreciate you took the time to respond. Thanks again.
