i know from the start it does not look like i'm shooting my hits thru. my first two appear to be a little shallow let me know.

all of them are high.. having said that, you are still a strong dude. other than depth, they look good

Thats what I was thinking. Drop back down to 365. All were very high. Too much action going on at the start too. Unrack, first step back, second step back, and be set to squat. You do handle the weight well and sit back good to start.

Cool thanks all for the critique. i'll go with with getting lower for my first two sets i use a stool that gets me deep enough, and for the last set i took it away. i can up load that if you want to see those, but i'll heed your advice and get deeper, don't want 3 REDs!

I'd say upload it if it's not a hassle. You'll get some good comments. Maybe they're great and maybe you'll get a tune-up. Either way, it's good.

I think even there you can get a little lower. Now I go pretty deep, so I can get a tad too critical. It doesn't seem you are quite at parallel with the stool. Lets see what the others say.

On the second video, you're not too far off - the second rep looked pretty good. I had a similar issue awhile back (1 - 2 inches high) and just dropped some weight off of what I was doing and buried the squats for 8-10 workouts. When it came time for the meet, there was no question at all about depth.

Donít know if your gym has one but I'm going to recommend a squat box or a low bench to maybe give you some reassurance to go a little deeper.
Iíve been using breeze blocks for a few weeks now and itís really helped me.

i'll see if i can get a lower bench some where in the gym. my gym has nothing its run by KBR in iraq. i had to buy my own collars and my own 2 1/2 weights. but you work with what you have!
