    Can't say I agree with the above poster. It's the outer thigh/hip muscles you need to concentrate on, not the groin. The machine might help, but a more direct approach would be squatting with a...

    Try taking another video with a clearer angle. Can't tell you if you're doing things completely wrong if we can't see you. It might just be in your head.

    One quick check though is just to do a...

    It does look like you might be rounding your back, but it is hard to tell from the obstructed angle. Also your depth got increasingly higher and higher with each rep:

    first rep - below parallel...

    Are you keeping your back tight? Easy to get "3 inch off the ground" depth if you round your back and tuck your hips. Not so easy if your keeping your pelvis locked in place.

    Squat as deep as possible and keep your back straight. If you round your back (ie tuck your pelvis) you take your glutes out of it.

    I would repeat what Kaleia said. Hard to judge back rounding from that video so maybe a different angle would help. It's definitely strange that you don't straighten out and finish driving your...

    Don't catch the bar with your hands, catch it with your shoulders. You are supposed to release your grip on the bar as you turn it over, like this:

    What should happen in the squat is that the bar should push down on the hips until they reach a point where maximum tension builds up, then you use that tension to drive the hips back up through the...

    I didn't say they were. I just don't see how stretching your back will help your squat form.



    I didn't say "not stretching your back is a way of keeping your back straight." Keeping tight is...

    Well I agree with your last sentence. The rest doesn't actually make any sense. If you want your back to stay flat, why should it's flexibility matter? You almost never want your back to round...

    It happens. Just try to keep the bar in a vertical path. Let the bar push you down, then drive the bar back up.

    Couple things:

    -- You don't need to keep your knees locked to stretch your hamstrings. I find it helps to have a slight bend. Your knees are bent in the squat after all.

    -- You don't need to...

    It sounds like he's saying that he's hyperextending his back... ie he has too much of an arch in his back when he squats. Usually the remedy to this problem is to remember to brace your abs while...

    It's tricky because deeper squats involve the glutes more relative to the quads. I've always been a firm believer though that deeper squats will engage parts of the quad you won't be able to hit...

    Comfort is a big factor for a lot of people. But low bar will tend to put more emphasis on your hamstrings relative to your quads and for high bar it tends to be vice versa. Low bar also gives you...
