Knee caving in
 
I have noticed that when I start lifting heavy weight, my right knee starts to cave in. What are some different techniques I can try to I correct my form?

Try out some glute exercises like X-band walks, clamshells, bridges, lunging, etc. and with all of your squatting, make it a point of focus to push the knee out to keep it in line with your foot.

Thanks Greg I appreciate the advice!! Separate question, I am following the workouts that you put up everyday, are those for your competitive team?

Glute exercises have helped me with this issue. Focusing on driving knees out as well. Check ankle ROM and foot angle too...mine sucked and it was starting me off in a bad position which was tough to recover from. Cleaning this up helped a bit.

No, but they're often similar to different programs I have used with some of my competitive lifters.

Thanks Greg for the response, I'm sorry to keep bugging you with questions, I was looking to enter an Oly competition, should I keep following the program that I mentioned?

You can stay on the same program and maybe modify it a bit to taper yourself for the meet. Or just try to find a meet that ends on the last day of the program so you can kind of use that as the final day.
