It's the most painful, most technical, and most beneficial lift. Post your stats, questions, suggestions, and videos here.

When I squat I raise my hips but the bar stays in the bottom position. My torso therefore ends up practically horizontal and I have to essentially good morning the bar up.

What is causing this? Is the weight too far forward?

>No flexibility
>One legged squats holding dumbbells

Help

Squat's by far my weakest lift, even my bench is stronger than my squat

wat do to improve
>>
>>35594142
Do it 2-3x a week. Heavy. Read the article in OP. Do low bar instead of high. Eat. A lot.

Keep a proud chest. Tighten your core, as if about to be punched in the stomach. Pinch your shoulder blades together as you keep a proud chest.

Lower the weight too.

Find a rack. It's your only option

>most painful,

Am I some freak of nature that doesn't have this? I can go 2pl8s for squats and be fine the next day. The only lift that leaves me really sore is maxed-out DL.

I think he meant the act of squatting itself. It's rather grueling.
