    A common theme I'm noticing, including here, is that there's a belief that practicing squats will eventually give the mobility and flexibility required to squat deeper with good form. In the case of...

    Sorry, you just reminded me that I forgot that. Here they are. Even though I'm wearing the same clothes, the first three are a different day than the last six and I'm sure that can make a...
  3. You seem to be assuming that I don't have an...

    You seem to be assuming that I don't have an anatomy problem because you are basically telling me to choose to squat better. I can't. Yes, I seem to find a cue or something that I wasn't doing...

    To hopefully conclude this thread, just a few more points.

    If my form improves when pointing my feet out and narrowing my stance, what problem does this indicate? If I could, I would work...

    RichMahogany, by saying your not a big Candito fan, what don't you like about him? Also, what is a moment arm?

    Quikky, I have seen Candito's video on butt wink and know he says slight butt wink...

    I think this was my point of confusion. I know you said it was difficult to explain in words, but chances are I would understand you so please give it a shot. But I think I got it. I did some...
  7. It's hard for me to understand the differences...

    It's hard for me to understand the differences between quikky's explanation and the technique I try to emulate, which is CanditoTrainingHQ. His squats are the most perfect I've seen so I took his...

    Without even trying to look for an explanation, I randomly found this from an article.

    "Using a belt correctly involves taking in a deep breath into your belly – trying to get your entire lower...

    I do try to keep upright only to counteract the tendency for everything to fall forward and round my back. Though maybe doing that is also causing problems.



    Maybe mobility isn't the right...

    Those back squats are merely my attempts to get the form down therefore they are not pause squats either since I don't even consider them part of the workout. I hope you weren't claiming my front...

    Well, I can provide the video but I don't know if they have a good angle. They've always been fine by me.

    Yes, I have seen that article. I welcome you to help back it up with other sources, because as far as I can see, Mark Rippetoe is the only one saying NOT to push against the belt. If this is what...
  13. It is 4" inches though I really hope that this...

    It is 4" inches though I really hope that this isn't the reason. It wasn't exactly digging into me. I'm willing to buy another belt but I want to be sure that is the solution. My theory is that...
  14. Do front squats require less mobility than back squats?

    I've been doing front squats exclusively in my strength program, but only to a couple of inches below parallel instead of the usual ATG. I miss back squats though and believe that despite an injury...
  15. Used a belt for the first time today and have a question

    It's an Inzer lever belt and today I did deadlifts. I follow Wendler 5/3/1 and I am on week 2. I used the belt on the last set only but just for fun I did couple of heavy singles afterwords. I...

    I lived primally for over a year in barracks. I walked to the commissary and cooked everything in the microwave, including meat. Yes, there is more appetizing ways to prepare it, but it was tolerable...

    Downtime??? Let me go research this phenomenon.

    In regards to hiring professionals, is that something I would need to do the rest of my life. I'm sure the reason that Grok didn't need...

    I always have held good form as very important. Proper execution has rarely followed. Certainly, after the injuries, I started recording my lifts to check my form and found flaws that I didn't know...
  19. Shortest way to functional, injury-free fitness

    I'm a sucker for routine because it allows me to accomplish exactly what I need to and move on to other things, which is especially important in my very busy schedule. Having dealt with 2 injuries...

    I would think sprinting is not much different from weight lifting. So the approach may be the same. Your consistently burning off muscle glycogen, so you'll need to eat appropriately. Your...

    While yoga wouldn't be my first choice, I know I haven't put enough importance on hips and core and will certainly change that. My core is especially weak because I always presumed heavy squats were...

    Because of what he said about ATG squats, or some other reason? I don't have a basis of comparison, but he seemed sufficient. He may not have focused on my hip injury, but his explanation on how this...

    You guys certainly know how to sell the chiro. Here's how my day went. I went to Navy Medical and while waiting in the waiting room, I called a chiro. To my surprise, I was able to make an...

    I didn't mean to sound rude or dismissive. But my nature is to be direct and skeptical, which combined will appear rude. I would think we are all skeptics to some degree, or we wouldn't be primal. ...

    Not asking for diagnosis.



    I didn't think you needed correcting either, but you implied that the deadlift is completely useless for quads.



    Since April 2012, I've lived in Chicago,...
