    squat wasnt very good. your flexibility is an issue, you are coming forward a lot, you cut it high, your knees are forward past your feet, and your heals are coming up.

    deadlift form needs help, too. you were wayy over the bar. It looks like you are starting the movement off the balls of your feet (instead of driving through your heels). lose the straps


    The biggest things I can say are:

    1) Work on your flexibility and work your glutes
    2) Get some flat soled shoes for squats and pulls
    3) Stop looking at yourself in the mirror when squatting and deadlifting, its preventing you from fully driving your head back.
    4) work your grip, stop using straps


    keep on truckin

    i thought this was ok as long as it didn't feel uncomfortable. i keep trying to keep my knees and toes parallel but there's no way i can do that if i keep my back straight

    Thanks for the honest feedback. It's much better then all my buddies always saying "damn that looks good." :mb: :mb: :mb: But are never able to give me ways to improve.

    I will take what you said into consideration. I'll look some flat sole shoes come payday, any recommendations? Looks like I'll be up at 6:00 am doing the morning yoga with the ladies :naughty:. Grip will come with time, it gives out at around 335lbs mixed grip.

    Thanks again Maine :)

    squat looked ok to me...i keep my feet closer though, but i dont recommend that for just anybody. Squating wide stance doesnt get me enough frontal quad...i have to be careful also from a double groin tear :(

    I got a keg infront of me that I'm working on to remove. Once thats gone I'll be closing the stance up to shoulder width. C'mon CutDiet!!

    Leaning too far forward on the squat. Also, not going down deep enough.

    Those will be corrected with flat soled shoes and working on my flexibility.

    I squat in my chucks. About as flat as you can get..

    Also, just a little thing, but on the squat, you may want to set the pins lower so you don't have to raise up so much when unracking the bar. I find when I set it lower I can keep a much tighter arch. Just a thought.

    Squat looked like you were leaning over pretty far.

    I've been moving my regular squat stance out a little wider, but I do front squats to address the quads so it doesn't become a problem.

    Thanks for the video. Damn that is crazy to see!

    Yeah I'm not competitive at all. I've been lifting for 18 months... started @ 280lbs and could barley squat or deadlift 135.

    I'll drop the weight down and and see how far of a depth I can drop. Full A2G

    So much feedback, I'm gonna have to try the simpler changes first (lighten weight, stance, grip, change of shoes) and then work my way from there towards increased flexibility.

    Okay. I'll give that a try on my next legs day for a month or two and see where it takes me.

    try to imagine you are trying to move the floor, not move the bar. This should help you from leaning forward and not drive with your toes.

    where would you suggest placing the bar for someone that doesnt really squat for anything special.i dont plan to powerlift or do strongman comps...just regular atg squats. on the "meat shelf," or near the traps?

    This will probably through him over his toes at the bottom.

    The technique on both was pretty terrible, back the weights off and learn to squat properly. I bet you can hit proper depth (way below where you are currently) with a lower weight.

    by throwing him over his toes, I ment throwing his chest over his toes, therefore dropping his chest and most likely popping his hips.

    He clearly doesn't have the flexilibity or lever lengths to to achieve such an upright squatting position at the bottom. Lower the bar on his back a little will help him hit proper depth. I'm not advocating that he squat with some retarded sumo stance.
