    That lousy feeling when...

    You finally video your form and it is clear to see your squat is not quite at parallel.


    If anyone recalls I had a thread a month or so ago posting my progression on F5. Well, scratch the 330 lb squat. Turns out I was about three, maybe four inches from parallel once I videoed it.

    And what a difference that 4" makes! Dropped weight back to 275lb and working back up. Tried to go just a bit below, and failed hard at 320 lb.. Two sessions in at 275 and so far so good.

    Five lbs a week, we will see how fast I get back there.

    Dammit!

    In a similar thread someone suggested stretching some elastic cord or similar in the rack so you just touch your butt on it at correct height. It was a means to make sure the depth is correct and consistent as you retrain yourself. Wish I could remember who it was, to give them due credit
    Faith in Jesus first and faith in squats second.
    Then other details will start to slot themselves into place.

    I would grab a ball and put it on a plate as low as I could go without buttwink to give myself a target. Haven't been doing it lately but it really helped during strength phase. This after I spent months thinking 3" above parallel was ass to grass, then added the ball target and spent months more working up to the same weight going to proper depth.

    Form and consistency are the most important things. Everyone gets excited about programming. But it's form and consistency matter.

    Are you doing the F5 novice program? 275 lbs squat 3X5 is still great! The most I squatted was 265 lbs 3X3 doing StrongLifts. I'm at 165lbs squat now with F5 now and look forward to matching your numbers Keep posting your updates!

    I just assume that anybody who doesn't provide video while quoting a squat number did a partial. I am very rarely wrong in that assumption


    I wouldn't put a tripping hazard in my potential walking path where I will have a loaded barbell on my back. I would however video literally every single working set and review the video in between sets (and have done so many times)

    I wouldn't consider a butt target a tripping hazard. I mean, controlling your steps should be much easier than squatting the weight. And the target shouldn't be in your walking path.

    It shouldn't, but, **** happens. I know it's a thing people do, like with box squats, but it's also a thing that I think should be reserved for rather experienced trainees which by definition precludes somebody who doesn't know how to squat to depth yet. I picture, for example, trying to bail on a rep and get the bar to the safeties but ending up tripping somewhere in the process. Or even racking the bar and just stepping backwards into it.

    I like box squats for the fact they allow you to do every rep consistently. I find it is also easier to descend slowly knowing there is something to land on and it ensures I hit the same depth every time.
