    Hello,

    I would really appreciate a form check on my squat. Thanks in advance to the coaches who take their valuable time to review my execution. Please excuse my bad English.

    Need to lean over more. Send your hips BACK, look at a spot 3-5 feet in front of you, and point your nipples at the floor

    How do these look? I tried sending my hips back and leaning over as hard as I possibly could.

    Any particular reason you are using a thumbs around grip?

    I tried using a thumbs over grip multiple times, but my wrists ended up hurting really bad afterwards. I know that's the best grip and most likely I'm doing it wrong, but for now the thumbs around grip feels comfortable.

    I use thumbs around grip. Same reasons. Got it ironed out through Pete in Orlando. Recommend!

    I can't remember where I read this but I think it was from one of the posts in the forum.
    It was something like this: thumb over allows straighter wrist(if not absolutely straight). thumb under does the opposite. But either way. the most important thing is the load is placed on the back. not in the hands.

    I personally translated these cues as "push/press" the bar "into" my back. The hands are there to hold the bar, somehow, down. Not to press the bar. It helped me. Hope it also helps you.
