The Five Biggest Contradictions in Fitness

Its no secret that when people contradict themselves, it has the effect of making the flaws in their actions or statements seem glaringly obvious. But what about when WE ourselves get caught contradicting ourselves by someone else?

    Squat Form Checks. Help appreciated

    Hey,

    I have been squatting for a while now, but recently started fixing and rebuilding my squat from the ground up, so I had to take a couple steps backwards...

    this is where I am at on my 2nd cycle of Wendler's 531.

    Obviously this is not a strong squat, yet. But I am looking for tips and critique on my form and where I need to improve as I go along...

    week 1: 3x5 (last set being 107,5kg)

    week 2: 3x3 (last set 112,5kg)

    Its not terrible. The biggest issue I see is with your elbow position. As the weights get heavier, it may push you more forward. You corrected it a bit after the unrack, but I find it best to keep position the entire time by getting in a good one at the setup. Lately I have placed the bar a little further down in my hand so I am able to get the elbows really wrenched under there.
