Hello Coaches,

I want someone to analyze my squat please. I was coached to pull my hips 'back' in the hole, because I was tilting foward, taking pressure off my heels. HOWEVER, now I feel that I've ingrained that, it's cause me to lean foward, and it's tough to engage my upper back. Let me know what you think. Thanks!

To me it looks like you are trying to close stance squat with a wide stance.

Wearing Weightlifting shoes should allowing you to use more quad in your squat because it shifts your body forward.

Your throasic spine is rounding a lot as well.

Try a narrower stance and really focus on keeping your elbows down and your chest up (spine in a neutral position)




I love squats!,
