    First time really doing ass to grass and first time getting videos of front squats. I've only been doing front squats for a few weeks and I want to make sure my form is all right. It was hard to setup the camera to view my entire body so you can only see part of me. Anyway, please give any helpful advice you can think of. I'm afraid that my knees might be coming too far forward.

    Front Squat 225X3 - PR Easier than 205, but lost grip

    everything looks good, the 225 front squat looked more like parallel than ATG to me though

    it might just be the way the vid is but your elbows are flaring out back on your back squats. Didn't seem to hinder your form though.

    So you're saying try to drive my elbows under the bar more? I always try to concentrate on doing that, but it doesn't always work. Thanks :)

    lol. it was about a foot away from the wall on my gallon of water. i tried to raise it up a bit by putting my log book on top of the water jug and then putting my camera case on top of that, but it fell after the second attempt of recording so i said fuck it.

    solid form (I guess, bad quality) but your legs make you look anorexic from that angle

    disblohs...was that the lowest you can go in the ATG squats? Or could you go even lower?

    why are your back squats lower than your front squats?

    I'm not really sure, that just felt comfortable. I might even be able to go lower than that.

    225X5 for back squats wasn't my max. That was the first time I had really done ass to grass other than 135 to see how it felt and it was a dynamic day so I didn't go heavy.
