View Full Version : Do my ankles bend too much when I squat?

Never noticed it before, but my ankles bend forward a lot (as well as my knees, but never saw that as a problem). I still feel on my heels the whole lift as the shoes help a lot with that. Is the way I squat not to my maximum form potential though? Should I sit back more? Weight is 235lbs I believe.
looks like damn near perfect olympic squat form
i'm sure others will comment
You have incredible flexibility. Most peoples feet would break off at that angle.
Tidy oly squattin'. From that angle, I think as your knees go out it gives the impression that they are travelling even further than they are.
Nice job man.

Great form to me dude. Good stuff
Excellent squating. I know I can't squat like that unless I have something under my heels. I usually use a much wider stance.

Nothing wrong with that squat. If by maximum form potential you mean the amount of weight on the bar, you could probably lift more with a low bar position and more forward lean, but that is a great Oly squat, which is probably much more suited to your goals since you Oly-lift.
