    I'm due for a check up, it has been a while and I fear for the form creep.

    From my eye I may need to lean over more, depth looks like I could be high? and my hips move back instead of up out of the bottom.

    Also I have an issue with my elbows getting pissed off when I squat. I have tried to think about a lot of different cues, none seem to work for me. Open to suggestions.

    Squat #285 (9/30) - YouTube

    Depth looks more consistent and deeper this set. Still feel like I need to lean over more.

    Picked up the cue "Tighten Upper Back" to help with my grip and pissed off elbows. Definitely felt better but not all the way fixed.

    Hey Kyle,

    Depth looks on point in this latest video.

    Setting up
    Elbow Pain: In your set up focus on keeping your chest up (eyes/nose out to 4ft in front of you, not right down between feet) and try to rotate your elbows down. You may have to remind yourself of this each rep.

    Movement
    On the descent, reach your hips back more as you sit down into it.

    As long as the bar is over midfoot, don't worry about leaning over more; your depth looked good on this video versus your previous video at 275#.
    Re: Elbow Pain - is it in your actual elbow, or in your triceps?

    Inside of the elbow, "Golfer's Elbow" I believe. Occasionally my bicep is pissed at me as well.
