View Full Version : Critique my squat and bent BB Rows

11-03-2008, 12:25 PM
first, this is my normal stance... A wide stance parallel squat

only did 3 bc it was the end of my workout and i didnt want to overdo it. Plus these kill my hip flexors, which is why im doing these for the time being . . .

Full squats - 235 x 3
notice how far my knee goes in front of my toes. I just cant get full depth without doing this, I feel like i'm going to topple over if my shins stay perpindicular to floor. What is your opinion of this?

BB Row pendlay style
205 x 4 reps

critique me please :) make me a better lifter

My only comment is for the video of the full squats. It appears that your butt winks very slightly towards the bottom of your squat, which would indicate that you have a flexibility issue...possibly in the hamstring or hip area. I would reduce the ROM slightly and address your flexibility until you can properly and safely go all the way down, otherwise you could create a more severe problem down the road.
