    This might be a useful addition to this stickie: http://www.mysquatmechanics.com/

    "allows you to enter your own body's dimensions and identify areas such as your bodies squating angles, potential form issues and where your sticking position is located"

    The Lower Back: As I mentioned above, it's critical to maintain an inward (or at least flat) curvature to your lower back. Do not allow it to round outward. If this happens, you need to drop the weight and work on your form until your lower back is strong enough to maintain that arch throughout the entire squat. Ego lifting and ignoring this point is asking for some big trouble.

    Squat Depth: A "proper" squat depth is to descend until your hip joint is at or below the top of your knee (a "parallel" squat). If your flexibility allows, you can squat deeper, until your hamstrings bottom out on your calves (an "ATG" squat). Anything at or below parallel is fine, though you should note that squatting below what your flexibility allows will cause your butt to "tuck" under and round your lower back. The better part of valor here is to stop your depth at the point just before "butt tuck" occurs and work on your flexibility first if you want to squat deeper.
    The "Squat Rx" series of videos (the first one is below) are good reference material, as are the "So You Think You Can Squat" ones (also below). If all that doesn't help you, then take a video of your form and create a thread asking for tips or advice.
    This is what I wanted to know and thank for the video Squat RX.

    I sometimes like a full or deep squat (body weight only) but I use a stability ball against a wall to maintain a good form (push my chest forward, maintain a flat or inward spine position) and increase my flexibility. Is this exercise good for someone, who look for strength progression in squat (when I squat with weights, I only go parallel, cannot go below that)?

    Question

    I'm trying to reduce butt wink at the moment (dropped the weight significantly and working on the form) - could you PLEASE comment on the technique and the extent of my butt winking (here's the video: https: //youtu. be/qrCYzz34a14 )
    Thanks in advance!

    thanks for all the info!

    unfortunatly i currently don't have access to a full squat rack, just a smith machine.. i've read this machine is bad in many ways (gains, body etc.), but i can use it for free.. is it worthy to pay a gym in order th use a real squat rack? I have access to all the other equipments.

    Can't post video because I'm new here.

      I'm new to the gym and I have been having terrible lower back pain for days after doing squats. I believe my hips are tilting forward curving my lower back. When doing squats the weight on my shoulders isn't heavy, and my legs do not get sore. I feel like all of the weight is on my lower back. I am a passenger on a Bullet Train on my way to Snap City. What can I do to fix this problem? Is it bad form? Is it overall bad posture?

    I have a video I would like to share of me squatting.

    I put a link to the YouTube video in the comments section on my profile. Maybe that will work?

    This seems like a good place to ask this question. I like the Pendlay Do Wins before the redign for sqatting. But I can't find any, does anyone know which shoes are comprable?
