Looks like good depth. You are going to hurt your knees if you don't fix your form, though (I know you didn't ask, sorry). The are collapsing in.

Yeah, what Hoosegow said--push those knees out the whole time. They look like they stay in good position on the way down, but cave in on the way up. Also, get tight before you walk the bar out, and stay tight the whole time, including while you walk the bar in. You were looking down at your feet before the first rep, and you were looking around to see where the hooks were on the walk in. Maintain your head position and tightness from the moment you take the weight to the moment it's resting on the hooks. It also helps if you can walk out with fewer steps. I think the ideal is one step with each foot, but sometimes you have to make small adjustments. Then one step with each foot to take the bar in, but feel the bar make contact on each side before you put the weight down--that way you don't have to look around.

Easy for me to say all that, but I still catch myself getting sloppy on those things!

The only thing I have in my defense on the collapsing of the knees inward... is that I didn't know I was doing it and if I knew I was doing it i didn't know that it was improper to do.

WIP always.

I'm always concerned my feet may not be symetrical after the walk out. Like OCD, I cant trust it to be right. Even if I practice 500x, I bet I'll still look down.

From what I saw today the top of your leg has to be below your knee for the squat to count and I think 2 out of 3 have to agreee :wink:

@CorlessJohnJ:

I'm wondering of your glutes, hamstrings and adductors are up to par with your quads. Squatting deep powerlifting style calls on those muscles to drive you up from the hole. You're a little shaky at the bottom of your ascent, but smooth at the top.

Or it could be that you're still getting used to the movement

EDIT: From Crossfit:

Quote:
One of the common faults we tend to see during a squat, especially as the weight increases is the knees caving in. Typically, when the knees cave in during a squat it’s an indication of weak adductors. Your adductors are comprised of four separate muscles: adductor magnus, adductor brevis, adductor longus, and gracilis. These muscle attach up by your pubic bone and come down the inside of your thigh, attaching at the knee. The adductors are responsible for knee stability, especially during a squat. Weak adductors are potentially dangerous because the caved-in position of the knee results in unnatural forces at the knee joint. Bill Starr has a great article in the CF Journal about bringing your adductor strength up to par. Below is a list of exercises you can do to strengthen your adductors:

•Wide stance squats w/ toes pointed forward
•Front Squats (as low as you can go)
•Sumo Deadlift

Check out the article by Bill Star in the CF Journal titled “Keeping Your Adductors Strong” for the comprehensive list of ways to strengthen your adductors. Don’t ignore this fault! Strong adductors will help you move more weight and keep you safe!

-Coach Rob

Are you doing mobility drills for your hips and ankles and glute activation?
