This is at 81%, felt friggn heavy today which I attribute to stress from finals being over the last couple weeks. Been playing with a wider stance (which I know you can't see from the video), that has proved to feel much more stable. I am noticing that it looks like I do tend to keep the bar over mid foot, hence heels coming up, wondering if that is from how I rack it? Let me know what you think
Try to bring your elbows straight down instead of back and think about pinching the tops of your shoulder blades together. Pulling them back may be causing you to lean forward, in turn, causing your weight to shift forward slightly.
Agree with Blake on the elbows. Get them directly under the bar as much as possible.
Try controlling your descent for a 3 count to see if that helps with your weight shifting. Again, I think this is fairly minor like your front squat. You are literally ass to ankles on these squats, so I don't see any glaring mobility issues.
Before I get under the bar I put my pinkies on the rings so I know I'm centered. Then right before I take the bar off of the rack I scoot them in just outside shoulder width. But it's usually a matter of what's the most comfortable for the lifter.
This is some what unrelated but I am looking for your guy's thoughts on this. I am currently on active duty for a bit and the transitional week left me with two days to actually get some gym time in. After Memorial Day weekend I should have a relatively regular work schedule and hence regular gym schedule again. I should be starting week 5 of a 9 week squat cycle this week and I am curious as to if its better to jump in as if I didn't lose most of week 4 or if I should start week 5 with perhaps slightly lower reps or actually make up week 4 all together? Any thoughts? Thanks!
