    Default Squat check - 3 different angles

    Weight: 127.5 kg (281 lbs).

    I have added my own thoughts/criticisms so I can develop this skill in myself. I'd greatly appreciate any feedback! This is the first time I've seen myself squat and never had coaching, just learned it from the book and the videos.

    The first work set taken from my LHS.

    My thoughts:
    It looks like the bar doesn't travel straight down and moves slightly horizontally. Perhaps my starting position is too vertical? Am I leaning forward too much as I descend or not sitting back enough at the bottom? My knees seem to move forward too.

    The second set taken from directly behind, around knee height.

    My thoughts:
    My left wrist bends and I have noticed slight tendonitis in that arm after my set. I feel it is something I need to correct before the weight gets heavy and the pain gets worse. I think my left shoulder/arm is less flexible than my right.


    My final set, taken from behind and to the right.

    My thoughts:
    I think depth was an issue for these specifically? Maybe that's psychological even though it felt as though for all of my reps and sets I was at my full ROM. I have a feeling you guys will tell me to squat deeper.

    Thanks for your time.

    OK, I won't. I'll work on getting my squat below parallel. Thank you for your time.

    Don't delete videos or set videos to private if you're going to link - people in the future need to be able to see this stuff when they search things like "parallel squat".
