knees are coming more forward than I prefer and it looks like you are putting weight on your toes instead of the whole foot and/or more towards the heel.
Depth looks good.
It's not bad but you are GMing out of the hole. You need to sit back more on your heels and use more glutes. What kind of shoes are those?
ah i c i'll keep that in mind
true, they're some old nike sneakers. I've been meaning to get some chuck taylors for squats and deads though.
Push your knees out, sit back, get on your heals. Siting back and knees out not forward are gonna be biggies, keep your chest up too.
just echoing what other's have said, you're bent over far too much on the way up.
you'd probably benefit from getting some weightlifting shoes/ increasing ankle flexibility with that squat style.
Its strong. Oh and guys, knee flexion isn't a bad thing.
yup i agree with the weightlifting shoes
Get new shoes!
how much weight was that BTW?
Yeah. Although Chucks would be an improvement over his current shoes.
a little too far forward
no not really, they would probably just accentuate his ankle inflexibility.
hard sole >>> squishy
its not the sole deformation thats throwing him off a little. I've seen guys squat 260+ kg in similar shoes.
I didn't say that was throwing him off. But you're asking for trouble squatting heavy in shoes like that.
You need a shoe with a higher heal. Chucks are not going to help at all. Also adjust where the bar is placed it will help with staying upright and prevents the shoulders from coming your knees, which will only throw you out of balance.

Sit back! Weightlifters can't squat the morning paper! lol
yeah i dont really notice a difference with my do-wins on oh work...then again i dont really jerk it i just push press, i can't get the second dip down really...if i do, its minor.
i *love* them for squatting a2g though. they're amazing for that. definitely worth it
Sick shit. I gotta get to a 225 strict, that would be sweet shit.
also i just want to get 300 any way i can over my head soon. that will be a sweet milestone
thanks, i'll give it a try
But in his case he does need to sit back, and force his knees out, and keep the chest up.
Pushing the knees out, getting upright and sitting back some more are goign to help him tremendously.
