    Dropped weight by a lot over the last couple weeks to try and get my form right. Having an issue with my butt shooting to the right on the way up. This weight feels easy but donít want to try and progress with terrible form and stall out.

    Concerned about depth/hip Drive/bar path and mostly the hip issue. Iím sure thereís a lot Iím not seeing. Any advice would be appreciated. Included different angles of my first 2 sets today Thanks!

    Look at your knees. Do you see anything wrong?

    Yes, they look wobbly. seeing knee cave on last two reps especially. Need to remember to cue ďknees outĒevery rep.

    Any advice about the hip shooting over issue? I donít have any pain. Sometimes it looks like my body is trying to shift weight to the right leg.

    I can't see this issue in this view. But knees and hips are thoroughly connected, and if your knees misbehave, your hips will too.

    In the first video link, the 3rd rep is the most obvious but it looks like it happens to some degree every time.

    3rd, 4th and 5th reps. 5th has some knee cave. I bet if you film from the rear you will see it more.

    Thanks! Believe it or not was just given this equipment on an ďuntil further noticeĒ loan. A friend had it in an old storage shed and hadnít used it for years.

    Very thankful, I have a great barbell club in my home town but being able to lift in my barn is great.

    I will be sure and focus on my knees next workout. Iíll try a rear angle, this should pick get a better view of both knees and hips.

    Thanks!

    Hello,

    Hoping to get some advice on my squat/ this hip issue. Per Rips advice, Iím trying really hard to keep my knees shoved out, and tried to work on my stance today too. Am I too weak for this weight? Is there something I should do to stretch my hips? Not sure what the crazy hip shift is. I donít have any pain, but it looks awful.
    This video as all three sets with 240lbs
    Chose the rear angle so the issue is most visible.
    Thanks
