    Deep Squats - form

    I’m doing lighter weight but squatting deeper lately. Do you consider this a deep squat? This is only 165lbs.

    That is deep. But I see signs of butt wink. Your lower back rounds at the bottom. I suggest being conscious of your pelvis position and work on ensuring no unintentional butt winks.

    Exactly this.

    I don't know the solution but its something to definitely stay aware of. You are unstable once you start to round.

    The solution to prevent back rounding is looking up at all times.

    IMO, widen your stance and keep your feet pointed straight. Look up at the ceiling and find a fixed point to look at. Push up from the bottom using your heels. Do NOT lock out at the top, keep a slight bend in the knee to prevent injury.

    I just saw this article and thought of this thread:
    https://startingstrength.com/trainin...p-in-the-squat

    Rippetoe advocates for squatting to legal depth, not ATG.

    I do bodyweight squats as low as I can go (ATG). With a bar on my back, I shoot for legal depth - just below parallel.

    My left need tweeks when I do squats with straight feet, a slight angle is more comfortable for me, thanks for the input!

    I tend to buttwink as well, you just have to be "aware" and when you go down that deep, just focus on keeping the lower back straight by trying to stick your butt out, you wont be able to at the position but it will stop the buttwink.

    low bar stance (lower bar on the back = less leaning forward = less lower back curve)
    Don’t go so low there is no need
    Get a belt and learn how to use it and breath with it
    Strengthen lower back —> good mornings, straight leg dead’s, back extensions, Romanian dead’s. If your lower back isn’t starting to cramp from a pump that you have to roll out between sets, more volume plus good form. Don’t add more weight unless it’s way easy. You don’t want to push the weight too much and pull your back out, it’s god awful sitting like a straight board in a chair during an office meeting and driving
