    Wrong. Old misleading information.
    How can you visualize the training of a muscle if you don't know its structure?

    Check out "Squat RX" videos on YouTube - there's one on mobility. Spend 10 min just stretching every single night and you will improve slowly.

    I have the same pelvic and mobility issues as you and they are slowly improving with regular stretching:

    Every night for a month do the following:
    Groin/adductor stretch
    Hip flexor stretch
    Hamstring stretch
    Glute stretch
    Ankle/ calf stretch (I like "downward facing dog" yoga position for that)
    Then:
    Sit in a deep squat position (keep your feet flat) while holding on to a door knob or pole and try to keep your torso upright and your low back arched for several minutes.
    Practice sitting down into an ATG squat (or as low as you can get) without weight several times per day.

    If all else fails move to a country that has only squat toilets for a few years!

    Good luck!

    Well after a week of practising BW squats plus a good warmup before I started, here is todays efforts.



    Definitely looks better to my eyes, but the weight used isn't particularly challenging, maxed out at just 42kgs. Interestingly, found it easier to squat "properly" with a bit more weight on the bar. Started off with just the bar, was bloomin horrible.

    Thanks for all the guidance so far, has been tremendously helpful.

    Cheers

    Stability. Too many people squatting in runners with big, cushiony soles.

    Your form is much improved! You do have some crazy long lower legs and I wonder if that's part of the problem. Anyhow, notice how your hips tuck a little bit at the lowest part of your squat. Mine do that too. Working on your glute/hamstring flexibility will help that.

    It looks better to me too. You are still bringing your upper body forward and down (with slight rounding of the upper back it looks like) in order to get that last bit of depth, and that is probably due to lack of flexibility in the hips/groin. Keep working on the body weight squats and mobility stretches. Consider trying it with the bar a little lower on your traps. I think I'll go stretch now too

    It makes sense that having weight on the bar pushes you into the squat more, a lot of people say the same thing. Looks like you are still trying to jam yourself into the hole of the squat with all your might at the bottom when you dip forward. It will come, you're doing great, just keep your chest lifted there and keep on with the flexibility exercises and you'll get there

    Last set of vids for the thread. Tried to think about chest up, saw some bar wobble on some reps and I think some might have only just hit depth, but seems to be heading in the right direction.



    And set 2

    Man, I don't know if it's just the camera view... but WTF, it looks like the bar almost rolls forward at the bottom of every rep. At this weight, it's not an issue, but go heavier, and there's going to be troubles.

    Look up and drive up! Put a spot in the distance on the ceiling, and stay focused on it.
    I don't lift weights, I flex under duress.

    This info is almost as bad as what I heard the other day at the gym. I didn't catch all of it but I heard a gentleman talking to a couple (guy and his gf who where squatting). He said something about doing cardio, and the gf told him "ya cardio will get you stick legs." I mean come on people, I stayed out of it, none of my business but I was laughing inside. My personal experience is that cardio always improves my squat. Lots of heavy breathing going on in that squat cage yup!

    You're still leaning too far forward. Stick your chest out and only release air when you're almost upright again. Use the window behind the camera as a reference when watching the video. The bar path is diagonal. That said, much improved.

    I'm going to stick with my original recommendation of doing box squats, it's as easy as sitting down on a low stool or a chair. Once you get used to doing that while holding a barbell, it'll be time to start looking at other issues.

    Learn to fail I know that feeling - even though I was in a rack, I had a huge fear of failure. Once I forced myself to fail and set the bar back down on the safeties, I found I could push myself more.

    Oh, well that settles it. I'm so glad that a real expert has chimed in.
