Alright fit I started 5x5 again because I only did it for 2 months before and even all my lifts went up but my squat was my weakest lift.
I've watched countless of videos and shit but I still don't think my squat is that good.
My hands sweat a shitload I usually only use them for rows. Those are new gloves so I'm breaking them in.
My main concern is that my knees are going past my toes. Is that okay? My wife is doing the same. I'll post her form video in a few
My grip is fine. Is just that whenever I do rows the bar moves either to the left or right because my hands are sweaty and then one arm ends up pulling more weight than the other
make sure you're bracing your abs (look up valsalva manuever for squats) and make sure you flex your glutes at the top
you should probably increase the weight because it looks too easy
knees going past toes does not matter at all. just make sure your knees are tracking along your toes (your knees shouldn't be caving inwards)
she's divebombing her squats (not controlling descent) and has some bad buttwink
work on flexibility
both of you could try paused squats (pause 3-5 seconds at the bottom, keeping your abs braced using valsalva)
Your wife has major buttwink
You hyperextend your back badly
She will hurt herself if she keeps with that
You need to work on hip drive, I think you drive your chest up too early, but I wouldn't have the full picture since it's still lightweight
Start the motion by lowering your but, not by bending your knees.
She's doing it to fast and the back rounds terribly, have her do a more controlled motion minding the back.
it looks pretty decent actually. You are hyperextending your back, probably because you are looking at your face in the mirror or something. Try to look down a bit, so that there is a 90 degree angle between your line of sight and back (if that makes sense). This way your back should be straight.
That looks fucking garbage. Unrack was fucking retarded, the bar is traveling forward during your lift and it looks as if you're shifting the load towards your toes which you shouldn't do. You don't maintain tension throughout the lift and your tempo seems weird as fuck.
1. when you actually take the barbell off the holder, stand underneath it and pick it up in a vertical motion, then slide one foot back at a time.
2. You have no hamstrings, don't use a bar. Try sitting down on a bench or box without bending your knees at all, then sit up without bending your knees at all. This will teach you how to engage hamstrings and glutes simultaneously. Once you can do this, try doing it slowly. Once you can do it slowly, try only gently tapping the box/bench with your ass and don't relieve your muscles. Think of hamstrings at springs, and you're loading them up.
3. Take your shoes off, you're not allowed to wear shoes squatting until you actually know how to squat. The heels of those shoes are too high and force you to lean over, making you rely on the bottom of your quads to squat.
You will make it, praise zyzz
this is literally form that would make me stop midrep and talk to a total stranger
That bar should form a straight line up and down. Your back should be straight. Your weight should be distributed on flat feet, more on the palms of them. Your back is so hyperextended forward that your spinal erectors are sustaining the weight distribution instead of just holding you upright. Stand straight. Use your legs. Not just your quads. When you learn how to do this movement properly you'll feel hip drahve and you'll feel like you're being propelled upward.
I was doing without shoes but then I got so worried about my knees going past your toes that I started using shoes with a heel again ( I saw a trainer and someone yt put 25lb plates for someone to use as heels to teach them to squat)
