squat is slowly coming back after the accident in january and i finally got a decent vid for people to look over. Wide stance just isn't a go for me..it KILLS my knees way too much. I do also favor my right side which bugs that hip flexor alot but i've been working on correcting that. Outside of those two issues what do you guys suggest for helping the squat? KdYWKEVFPqs

I can't see your video. It's not showing up on my computer. Don't know if it's just me.

I can see the video fine..... I think your setup could be better. The rack is too high for you, and you're loose before you unrack it. Otherwise, I thought the squats looked decent...

Get some weightlifting shoes. This will help keep those knees away from your toes. Also keep your elbows down. Pull them down as if you are trying to get them in front of your body. This will help you stay upright more.

It seems like you lose your upper back tightness in the hole. Like Scott said, pull your elbows forward and try to bend the bar around you. Drive your head back into the bar out of the hole.

Place the bar solidly on your back. It rolled like crazy at the end.

You have to scream, LIGHT WEIGHT BABY!!!!" at the top of each rep. Good squats, otherwise.
