    This is a followup to my previous post here: Squat Form Check: new to low bar (300x5@220BW)

    Here I am squatting 310x5 (Friday, Feb 9th)
    Squat 310x5 - Feb 9th - YouTube


    For more angles I have my squats from the prior Monday for 305x5.
    1st Set - rear quarter
    2nd Set - rear
    3rd Set - side view

    Bodyweight is about 222 lbs, height is 6'1".
    I've brought my grip in per the prior recommendations. Trying to point my toes out, which I found right away gave me better spring in the bottom with my knees naturally coming out.
    Bringing my feet back in for a closer stance feels very awkward however. I'm back to 315 this last Friday with almost no shoulder issues thanks to my friend calling out my elbows during my sets.

    Your stance is too wide and you are not leaning over.

    Pay attention to your back angle as you drive out of the hole. That should be your back angle on the way down.

    Thanks, I think I'm getting it. Will post a followup soon. I certainly wasn't starting by bending my hips before my knees I don't think.

    Thanks. Continuing to work on this. Getting there.
