I think you mean adductors, and not abductors; as far as I understand it, adductors play an important role in squats, and abductors not so much.

Really I think the best way to do it is exaggerate shoving your knees out at the bottom until your adductors get stronger. Keep squatting.

Got my barbell yesterday, used it today for the first time. It's great. Maintenance is easy. I keep a rag and a can of mineral spirits by my rack. I just wipe it down when I'm done with it. Takes two minutes.

It's the best barbell I've ever used. Good buy.

Well, the basement is a bit humid. I guess that could be fixed with a dehumidifier.

Buying a Barbell

Hi everyone. I'm coming off a long layoff (a few months of sporadic lifting) basically due to lack of gym access/equipment. I'm now in the process of putting equipment in my basement, but I need to buy a quality barbell. I was looking at the Rippetoe Bar because I know it's pretty versatile and good...

Religion explains nearly all pro life. Other brainwashing or simply not understanding things is another reason. It depends on what you mean though, if you want to stop just late term elective abortion I could understand that. I wouldn't want to pass a law, but I could understand people wanting to. ...

As for celibacy causing pedophilia in some men, that is just a hypothesis, however the association is strong. I think it is unnatural and that because every mortal sin is equally bad, having sex with the alter boys is no worse than anything else they could do. I think the unnatural suppression of a...

A better understanding of the lift might help:

I find Coach Rippetoe very easy to follow. Hopefully this, along with what the others recommend, will help.

Doc, I noticed you seem to be having some trouble with your grip on the Front Squat. I've got pretty long forearms too, and I found that pointing my elbows in seemed to help me keep my elbows up high and the bar on my shoulders. So basically the bar is on my shoulders, and my fingers are under the b...

How to approach neck exercises

Since I've been weightlifting I've put on a ton of muscle mass, but I'm starting to think I'd look a lot better if my neck was a bit bigger. My vanity is compelling me to do something about it. I was basically planning on doing the necksercises (see what I did there?) listed in the exrx.net director...

Like you, I'm a "night person." I'm still young though so I don't think it affects me as much. Basically I don't miss workouts from being tired (or for very many reasons) anymore, especially now that I'm on more of a weekly format, as it would destroy my planning. I usually compensate by napping, al...
