    Why do my knees point inward on squats/deadlifts?

    About a month or so ago I realized during squats that on the second half of the upward movement, my knees would 'buckle', point inward, and only then would I be able to complete the squat.

    At first I dismissed it, but realized it's most likely not a good thing. On Friday, I deadlifted for the first time in a while and my knees did the same thing: i'm able to get the weight, but only after they point inward.

    I am using heavier weight than usual (doing a 3x5 scheme for both), but in the past when doing heavy weight (relative to how strong I was), I never had the knee-buckle problem.

    My position with squats is a fairly wide stance with my toes pointed outward. I tried going even wider and the problem still consisted.


    Anyone know what I can do to fix this? I read somewhere that it may be the weakness of my adductor muscles, which cause my quads to take the workload, therefore causing my knees to point in.

    i believe it's because you have weak hips so you try to compensate by transfering the weight to your quads. try dropping the weight down some and perfecting your form and then move the weight up. much more benficial in the long run. also look up some hip exercises that you could do to help bring up the area
    Training for my first meet.

    this. Train your hip abductors/aductors.

    Good call. Especially if it's been a while since you've done the exercise. No shame in dropping a little weight.

    Try doing some band work. Use light weight on the squats with a light band... I used the red one from elitefts when I had that problem... Loop it so it's doubled up and put it just below your knees so it pulls them inward and really focus on pushing them out. It will be really akward at first but it helped me a ton
