    Butt Wink

    It has been quite some time since posting on this forum, but I am in need of some help. I've recently took better stock in my nutrition and recovery and have seen incredible gains in both size and strength. Primarily my squat has really shot up. Prior to me noticing some slack in my form I was comfortably doing 225lbs. for 10 reps, but as I started tightening everything up I noticed I was having a slight round in the back and my butt tucking slightly under my hips. I always squat ass to the floor. I have done a few things to try and correct this but I lose about half of my squatting strength and still end up have the same outcome. Any tips?

    I have the same issue, from what I have read loosening up your hips should help, ankle flexibility might help as well. I had good results with using lifting shoes, you could try putting a 5lb plate under your heels if you don't have lifting shoes to see if that helps (it does basically the same thing). I would still work on your hips though, I messed up my quad because I was too tight and now I really wish I had been stretching them.

    I have the same problem as I'm very stiff (too many years of inactivity). A coach recommended this:

    I've just started doing it so can't comment on any success with it yet. If you use it let me know how you get on.

    Front Squat: 100kg (220lb) 5 x 5

    I would say stop at the depth where your form starts to break in the interim while you work on flexibility.

    Could you post a video of your squats?
