    any tips to keep from good morning a squat?

    i have a problem with consistency sometimes. when im feeling nice loose and mobile this isnt really much of an issue but i still get very tired in my back during squats, then i have days like today where im very tight and seem to good morning alot of my reps. like for instance i really tried to focus on not doing that today, did a few reps with 255 just fine without issue, felt nice coming out of the hole back to lockout. then put 305 on the bar trying to focus on not doing a good morning, the first rep went very well it was smooth deep and fast and overall easy, went for rep number 2 and let me tell ya that would of been quite an impressive good morning if that was the intention. anyways i threw a belt on and did a few more reps with 305 with a much much closer stance than normal as a little assistance work and racked the weight and left without really a good workout at all. any tips to try to correct this? like any ques to think about during the lift, this has only recently started to happen worse and worse and im working on mobility as well. anyways now my back hurts

    Quads are your weakpoint. Start front squatting or hack squatting.

    It could also be the way you're setting up. If you're not keeping your upper back tight, then you'll end up pitching forward.

    2 possibilities:
    1, If you lose balance forward of midfoot, its a technique issue. Focus on staying in midfoot. This is probably your case.
    2, if you stay balanced over midfoot, but your position changes to more of good morning position (your knee angle opens and hip angle closes without significant vertical bar movement), then that shows that you have imbalance, probably a result of squatting incorrectly over a longer period of the time. Fix to this would be reducing the weight on your squats and doing it correctly,NOT DOING THE ACCESSORY LIFTS FOR THE QUADS.

    sounds like your loosing tightness in your core. Might be pushing hips back to much. Kinda need to see video to know for sure. I would suggest that you take video of yourself from all angles.

    im number 2, i stay balanced with no stability issues that i can tell. i just wonder why some reps are smooth and feel perfect and then others i tend to good morning, like when i do heavy singles im fine but the problem arises when doing multiple reps. guess i need to drop the weight like you said and focus on being strict.
