    I started NLP about three weeks ago. Looking for advice on my squat technique. They feel okay but Iíve been trying to boing out of the bottom and driving my hips. I think Iíve read the squat chapter like three times so far trying to remember the cues.

    My leather belt and shoes are on order and hopefully will be here this week. Thanks for any advice. Iíve gained about 2 pounds in BW a week so far. Itís also like 10 degrees F in my garage! Thanks.

    Get your grip narrower. That's going to fix a lot of problem. Keep your pecs up tight AS you bend over.

    I can't tell, but make sure you're looking at the ground about five feet in front of you. Don't look away.

    This isn't a horrible squat though.

    Andrew,

    Thank you, I appreciate the comments. I am looking about 4-5 ft in front of me. I actually marked the ground. The narrower grip I will work on. My shoulders are not super flexible yet as I started the program with bent wrists and have since transitioned to the straight wrists and pinning it against my back. I will work on it. Thanks again.
