mixed with two sets of 15 of on the floor scap slides (figured I was flat on my back recovering from the rev crunch sets, might as well do something with the time).

bwt: 276

Working out with my daughter :grin:

Warm up
side lying windmills (10 each side)
hydrant/extension/bird dog thing x 4
Thoracic extension and rotation (10 each side)
glute stretch
ankle mobility
third world squat

OH press

60 x 8
60 x 8
60 x 8

60 x 8 (each side)
60 x 8 (each side)

Face pulls
48 x 20 (1 second hold)
48 x 20 (1 second hold)

Cool down: as usual

Notes: Since my daughter was there I took advantage of the opportunity and had her video my squats so I could finally take a look at my own form. A couple of people noticed me doing so and took the chance to tell me what amazing form I had, best form they'd ever seen, incredible control with that weight, said it was perfect. I was feeling great... for about 30 seconds, until I was able to watch the vid myself. Huge, hyoog, HUGE butt-wink! The angle wasnt good to see for sure, but I think I got to just below paralel ok, but from there down is basically one big butt-wink. Sure my butt goes down to the top of my ankles, but it totally rotates under me to get there.

So... two items out of this. 1st) Dont trust just anybody to comment on your form, especially not random gym goers. 2nd) back to light weights and a box for me for a bit to see if I can fix this. I already know it's going to be difficult, probably been squatting this way for more than 10 years.

Any advice on how to correct this would be most appreciated.

I think I need to sit back more in my squat, keep my torso more upright. My butt is just starting to curve under as I hit the box, no matter how hard I try to just push it back. Amazingly frustrating.
