    Ill get a few videos of form next workout. I'm probably rounding on the way down.

    Another thing, when I take in my gulp of air to fill up my belly to protect by back, am I tensing/engaging my abs at the same time?
    Once over, I was just engaging my gut, without taking that gulp of air. Then I started taking that gulp of air without tensing the abs. Should I be doing both?

    Ah ok, so after looking at form videos and techniques. I think my problem had to do with using to much of my back and not my legs. So once it got past knees, instead of thrusting forward with my hips I pulled with my back.

    My spine is crying just thinking about this. Form is paramount on barbell lifts. You will get hurt if you don't have it nailed down.

    Okay, So I squatted 90kg today and the same thing. I had a bit of "spinal soreness" (as best as I can describe) for a few minutes then it went away to a nice lower back pump. As if it got a good workout. I checked my form with one of the trainers who thought nothing seemed wrong with it.

    Could it simply be too much weight? I'm always near failure on the last rep on the last set. Where is takes a lot of push to get the weight up and a lot of constipation looking faces.

    My stick my arse out, chest up, lower down, bend the knees, I cant figure out what i'm doing wrong.

    Everyone says to take a deep breath in and keep it in your belly, while some say just suck your gut into your spine. Which one? I take a breath in my gut and perform the movement, and I simultaneously supposed to be tensing, or engaging my core??

    On second look, It appear I may but wink just very slightly at the end of the movement with squatting. It seems to be an issue with my hamstring flexibility, which makes sense. I'm on my arse all day then I go to the gym to squat.

    You really have to post a video if you want any legitimate feedback. Telling us what you think you are doing doesn't really help us at all

    Yup. And you should probably post the video in the Starting Strength Coaches' Forum rather than here.
