Thanks. I watched some "proper form squat vids" and they mention all the components for some one by going up in weight until they fail and see where they start failing first..quads? Back? Hips? Etc

After that I feel I have bad hips. I actually never really thought about it my I OFTEN have my hips tense up. When I'm doing abs, bench, etc my abductors just start to tense and lock up. Does this sound like something that is a major issue do you think? Or is it more something I need to strengthen? I'm sure the ladder of course. Haha

Do your knees tend to cave in a bit when squatting. Mine do and it drives me nuts.

I wouldn't say they do, however, when my hip begins to give (usually one or the other just depending) I may begin to dip towards that side a bit. With that being said, I'm sure my knee does go in a bit though.

Mine do on the last rep or two of a heavy set. I have to be conscious of it happening and make sure they stay out.

I keep my toes pointed way out and it really seems to help with ensuring knees are pushed out, and also allows me to get maximal depth with my squat

I'll have to try that. I usually only slightly point them out.

That's not a great idea. Ideally you want the knees to track over the toes.

Form check. Set 5 of my 5x5 at 275lbs. Wanted to film my last set instead of my first set when I was as exhausted...

Start with the bar on the ground, seems you would be wasting a lot of energy with your initial lift off the rack.

You have few things to work on:
  • If you're right handed, use an under-grip with right hand. Over-grip with left
  • Make your feet a little closer
  • hands should be right outside the legs, the narrower the less distance you have to move the bar
  • DL is a pull and a push movement, push with your heels, thrust with your hip, once the bar clear your knees pull
  • You tend to lift the bar mostly with your back, you want to engage your hams and hips. It should be a one smooth motion from start to finish. You seem to break it into two moves; before the bar cleans your knees and after. Your back is a little bent forward, you're asking for injury, it should be straight
  • I would perfect the form with a lower weight like 135lbs and then work your way up
  • always start with the bar resting on the ground so you can adjust your form

Who says the knees won't track over the toes? I consciously ensure they do

Re: MpoweredM: Just another progress thread...

The two biggest issues I see:

Start with the bar on the ground
Your weight distribution appears to be almost entirely on your front toes. You should be lifting from your heels, it's almost like you are shifting forward to compensate for the bar being too far from your body

You want to use the under grip with your weaker hand, I'm right handed I use over with right, under with left.

Start from ground is number 1 hence the name "deadlift". There is a lot to work on here though. All easy fixes though.

Hips get too low so you're kind of squatting the weight up. You're doing two different pulls on each lift. One is super low then IMO you get into the correct pulling position. See the pics below. 1 is super low, almost like a clean position and pic 2 is where I think your hips should be when you first begin the lift maybe just a tad lower but not nearly as low as when you start.
The hips too low is a common problem I see so I have people bring them up a bit. Last thing is you seem to go around your knees on the way down. Pull your hips back and this will help.

Deadlifting is a super simple move to explain so I'll do my best here.

-Walk up the the bar with feet about hip /shoulder width apart ( use personal preference) and touch your shins
-bend down and grab the bar right outside your legs
-lower hips until you feel tension in your hamstrings. If you go to low you'll feel nothing and know you went too low
-chest up and keep a neural head position by looking about 3 feet in front of you at the ground.
- take a big breath and hold it in your gut. Pull tension off the barbell and lift up pulling your shoulders back. Make sure that barbell is as close to your body as possible. When approaching the knees pull the hips back and your knees will follow.

If you can take another video in a few days and drop the weight to 185 just so I can see the form again. That will obviously be light but I just want to see if how it goes.
