    Mobility routine for oh squat and squat

    Basically every muscle in my body is tight, Squatting isn't too difficult I can go below paralleled, however my hamstring cannot touch my calfs, also my lats are too tight to keep the bar parallel to the ground in a oh squat. I have tried a stretching routine for about 2 months and have literally have seen no improvements. I do static stretches for all the leg muscles and most of the upper body before bed, but for the past week I stopped due to hearing mixed opinions of methods of stretches. Can anyone recommend a routine which I can do and also a schedule to how often I do it.

    Cheers.

    i use extremely light OH Squats as mobility and warmup for my actualy squat, but if u want ur hamstring to touch your calves chances are ur hamstrings and calves are tight.

    I would personally ask in the Oly lifts section if i had that problem.

    And static strecting doesnt work for me. Using a very light weight and increasing the range of motion untill i have complete range of motion then slightly increasing the weight.

    practice with an empty bar every day. Start with a snatch grip and as your mobility improves, move your grip in gradually. Pause for a few seconds at the bottom of each rep to get a good stretch. Don't wear shoes if you want to improve ankle flexibility.
