Are those bespoke squat shoes?
post #49397 of 57262
I wish. Just RTW aldens. Stable heel.

I seem to be in good company tho. Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)

Is that kind of low back rounding in the video acceptable?

I dont squat because I cant do it without getting a bit of rounding like that and I worry it will fuck me up at some stage

I don't think that was great squat form.

Looks good to me, esp for those long ass femurs

Mite wanna open up your stance if you can, if you feel good-morningish

Also, you can get along with these bodyweight movements pretty fine and you can do them almost everywhere:

- Pushups

- Dips (between chairs)

- Pullups

- Pistol squats

 

and with the bands you can add:

- curls

- tricep extensions

- flyes

- good mornings

- etc...

 

Yeah, that's what I was thinking. I'll be moving too fast to get a gym membership. Do you have a recommendation for bands? I have some but they don't provide nearly enough resistance.

I got mine from strengthshop.
I think they have a US website now.

Get bands in resistance #2 to 4. Should be enough.

Damn, those shoes for squats are epic! I would go wider and use more of a hip thrust for the lock out.

Your low back is rounded pretty bad at the bottom you are kind of buckled.

However, to keep balance the bar always needs to be directly above your feet otherwise you will tip over

Therefore, given the relative length of your torso and femurs, the only option to get your back more erect is to make your knees go forwards more

I have this exact problem. Putting plates under your heels helps a bit. You can work on ankle dorsiflexion but who could be fucked.

Technique looked pretty solid. Better than most in here, so I wouldn't worry about it too much.

What are the detrimental effects of low back flexion under load though

I guess the last one looked really awkward with the wink.


In the earlier ones, you can see that your hips and your shoulders are moving differently when you should just be driving with your legs coming out of the hole. I think your upper back needs to be tighter, so bring your elbows in under the bar a bit more.
