I kind of have that over-extension problem too. I think its partly a technique problem, you simply squat inefficiently and have learnt a faulty movement pattern, and partly its due to weak muscles, most likely the the glutes, quads and prob a bit back. My trainer has said weak glutes are one of my weaknesses so I'll do more work for it in the next training cycle. 

Yup, you def do from seeing your videos. I agree, It's so hard to break a movement after doing it for a year or more because all those muscles that support the movement are strong. Here's just a little information that might help -

When I had Greg Nuckols he told me I need to strengthen my quads and glutes. I said OK and did a ton of stepups, highbar squats, paused front squats etc. My quads and glutes did get stronger and it took me to 300lb squat but at that point I was back at my original problem. From there I could strengthen my glutes and quads more but I stepped back and thought why is this happening. Didn't really figure it out until I went to that PRI class, what's funny is that it was a room of 6 old ladies and It applied directly to powerlifitng. Thought I was crazy for a second because everyone I trained with squats like that. But Chris Duffin explains it better and it's easier to listen to someone with a record squat than someone like me who is DYEL and squats high 300s.

My power clean form would make you cry. I see no need to learn an s-curve pull until/unless I start doing squat cleans.

Yeah, thanks for that article and video. Good info.

I saw he had a video on grip width in the squat which ties into the extension problem as well. You should watch it if you haven't.

A lot of his technique videos are great. His bench video with lats is interesting and touches on points I've heard from some great benchers where I train.

I need to watch that bench video and track down the grip width.

In a globo gym is it even worth helping out the kids doing strong lifts / starting strength? Or should I just keep my mouth shut. For some reason there's loads of kids doing stronglifts 5x5 or starting strength with god awful form. I worked in with some dude who was squatting, I had to do front rack shrugs, his knees were caving like crazy at the bottom and I gave him a tip. But wasn't sure if I was being annoying. There was also some dude "cleaning" 50lbs and he was a lost cause.

no

Yea, I figured. You see the craziest shit at globo gyms.. I gotta say though the women represent hard at this gym, at least some of them, they really go at it. Meanwhile all the guys are on smith machines looking at themselves in the mirror.

Had a sort of rough day at work today. Channeled that into a 445x2 Squat PR with wraps and belt and went home immediately after.
