Body image perception is an interesting thing, sometimes i'll look into the mirror and think "damn, looking thick, solid, tight, good job!" Then other times i'll stare at myself and be like "DYEL?"
This. Me. All the time.
Anyone having trouble with front squat, my #1 advice to you is wind up one arm at a time under the bar and once you're in position, squeeze boobs together, and attempt to push up elbows. Single piece of advice that helped me get my front squat right.
