    I keep falling forward doing squats

    I'm at the gym, and I was goin 5 x 5 squats. 225, 275, 295, 315, 335
    I was on my second set with 275 and after the first rep I kept falling forward. The third I literally fell and thanks to the safety racks I was ok.
    I think I'm going deep enough, and I know I'm srtong enough to do the weight, my momentum just keeps pulling me forward. I'm beginning to think the foundation of the gym is off or my shoes have too much wear the the toes

    When i squat i sometimes feel something pulling me forward aswell. To combat this i just arch my back more and try to pull my shoulders back and i can usually straighten up.

    You just need to get your form down more. Make sure you stay on your heels, that's the key.

    I feel that when I wear running shoes. Try a flat soled shoe or even stockingfooted. But if its enough to actually knock you off balance its probably a form issue.

    Um hum. You're not strong enough, the fact you've convinced yourself so maybe the reason your form's off. If anything, your toes should come up off the floor slightly. Turn to the side, look into the mirror and squat down.

    Your knees should never be forward of your toes, and your legs should go at LEAST parallel to the floor. If you can't look down and see your toes, your form is off and you should go back to the drawing board. Make sure your push your hips back and stick your butt out when squatting, this will keep you from falling forward. Also, lower back/core strength is essential to keeping you upright with such a large amount of weight on your shoulders. Look at improving these as well.

    The barbell/weight is moving forward as you squat. Keep it as close to centered over the middle of your foot throughout the lift as you can, and everything will sort itself out. Wearing flat shoes (or no shoes) helps, as does mentally focusing on keeping your weight on your mid-foot/heels.

    There is a far less likely option. If you can't do a weightless squat with proper form in bare feet, it could be a flexibility/tendon restriction causing you to learn forward to adjust your center of gravity and keep from falling backward. If you can complete one, your eyes are bigger than your glutes.

    i'm guessing your palcing the bar really low down because your traps are lame and it hurts too much to have the bar high making you bend over a lot more and on top of that you're not as strong as you think you are and doing half squats or knee twitches and almost killing yourself. See people like you at the gym all the time.

    Start with 135 and get the form right and get your butt to the ground without smashing your face. NO ONE CARES HOW MUCH YOU CAN LIFT AND NO MATTER HOW STRONG YOU ARE THERE'S ALWAYS SOMEONE STRONGER.
    Everybody wants to be a bodybuilder, but doesn't nobody want to lift no heavy ass weights. --Ronnie Coleman

    That's crazy!!! Cuse I was goin 5 x 5 squats. 225, 275, 295, 315, 335
    I was on my second set with 275 and after the first rep I kept falling forward. The third I literally fell and thanks to the safety racks I was ok.
    I think I'm going deep enough, and I know I'm srtong enough to do the weight, my momentum just keeps pulling me forward. I'm beginning to think the foundation of the gym is off or my shoes have too much wear the the toes

Make sure your push your hips back and stick your butt out when squatting, this will keep you from falling forward. Also, lower back/core strength is essential to keeping you upright with such a large amount of weight on your shoulders. Look at improving these as well.
    There is nothing wrong with knees forward of the toes, that is perfectly normal.

    In fact what could be happening is that if you frantically try to keep your knees behind your toes then you might end up compensating for the inherent imbalance by leaning forward more with your torso and that could make one fall forward.
    Strength + Speed = Power

    If you never fail, you aren't truly pushing yourself to the limit. If you never push yourself to the limit, how do you know what you're truly capable of?
