Ok, so I took the advice in my last thread (or, I think so) and I did some more squats today.

Here is the updated vid. The things I feel like I changed.

I slowed my descent, tried to make it more controlled and exploded up.

I set up under the bar while unracking it, lifting with the hips.

I wore different shoes, no support (wrestling shoes)

and I tried to get a little more depth (although on my 225 set, I don't look low enough).

Any feedback is greatly appreciated! Thanks again!


Here is the new (today)

They're looking pretty good. About the only thing I see at first glance is that your chest closes up a bit as the weight gets heavier. Try and draw your elbows under a bit more and get the chest up as high as possible, much how you would be if you were very pround and bowing the chest out.

Looks good to me too. You could probably still be a bit tighter when you unrack, but it's a huge improvement from last time. I'd say you're still a tiny bit high on that last set too. Overall everything looks really good and strong. Keep up the good work.

your last set was noticeably higher than your first few

I noticed my last set was a little high. I don't know why I did that. Maybe I was getting tired.

most people tend to do that as it gets heavier.

Yeah, but my depth was fine last week at 225... just with worse form...

The worse form probably allowed you to go lower, when you stay strict with your form, everything is harder. Its fine, improving your form is more important, keep at it and you will be moving 225 with good form for reps!

Needs to stay tighter.. breathe in deep and hold it.
