Squat form check appreciated!
« on: March 10, 2015, 02:32:00 AM »
Hi,

Been lifting a few years, but only trainign for PL and squatting frequently for 5 months or so.
current lifts are 170/110/205, first competition in August.
Been working through sheiko numbered programs for a while and will continue up until competition

my squat form isnt great, have looked through the vids and noticed im not breaking at the hips, and am sure there are other problems

videos below

150kg x 1 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AvWhgMzvN7Q

170kg x 1 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WDZCjR5AbL4
180kg x fail https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lyqtfj9t99Y


any input/suggestions are greatly appreciated.

Hello. First impression: you need to squat deeper.Try to get really tight, hold your breath and squat

I second the squat depth. Also spend less time on your set up!
