    Obviously the fact that you have short achilles tendons is a big issue for squatting. You will not be able to squat unless you are able to increase the range of motion at the ankle joint, full stop....

    For now, plates under heels is fine since you are using light weights. For the long run you should be working on your ankle mobility.

    It's pretty good overall, but it looks to me like you are hyperextending your back slightly. Make sure you are keeping your abs tight and this ought to help you keep a neutral spine.

    That's normal... it's pretty much impossible to deadlift with your shoulders pulled back. What matters is that you lift the chest and ribcage in order to lengthen the spine and establish an arch in...

    You have a bad habit of "rocking" into the lift before each rep. It's causing you to set up with your hips too low every time--- thus you have to start the lift by bringing your hips up so that you...

    Probably better if you joined a gym! Start with just the 45 lb bar, then add weight progressively. The bodyweight exercises you are doing will not do much specifically for your butt. They really...

    What the heck is a squat challenge and does it involve a barbell with weight on it? If not, learn how to squat with one. You'll see much better results that way.

    Agreed. The biggest thing for you is work on your flexibility. You are really, really stiff at the hips and ankles. See these vids:

    I doubt it. Crossfit is going to ask you to throw a lot of weight around at a high tempo in a competitive environment. The amount of weight will often not be high, but it's still going to be...

    Forget about "buttwink" for a second, because it's minimal. But you are clearly relaxing at the bottom of your squat. Don't do that. You need to stay tight to properly support all that weight on...

    Not what I wrote. Kids should be provided for until they reach adulthood. After that, go make your own fortune.

    Put your feet out in front of you when squatting on a Smith Machine. Much more comfortable that way, but don't expect it to simulate a real squat. It's more like a standing leg press.
