I posted a few days ago in B&WL asking about Squatting and Knee soreness.

Someone asked if I could post a video so I dug the digital camera out and made a few videos of my form on squats, deads, and cleans.
My first video of my squat revealed that I was letting my knees slide way forward, so this video shows me focusing no sticking my butt out and trying to keep my knees from drifting forward. The cleans look better then I thought they would.

Let me know how I am doing. All 3 lifts are at a weight of 135 focusing on form.

They all look pretty good to me. You might want to get your hips a little farther back and lower on the deadlift, make sure that bar is being pulled against your shins until it passes your knees. Clean form looks good, you might want to focus on the second pull a little more. If you can make that pull a little more powerful and quick you will be able to move a lot more weight.

Thanks Meat for the reply, I guess I,m on the right track.

I'm guessing by the number of views this evening and the lack of replies that i am doing pretty good.

Worked out tonight and noticed that when squatting with this form that my core, especially my lower back have to do a lot more work... I guess that is what I get for squaring with bad form up to this point. Hopefully my back and core catch up quick so I can keep making gains with my squat. At least my knees are feeling strong and solid under my squat.
