Anyone have tips on keeping proper form? As well as, what exactly is proper form?
Thank you, I was to lazy to search.
"Keep in mind that the knees should not protrude over the tips of the toes."
I guess this is what I have a major problem with. I can't even do that with no weight, I'll fall backwards
start box squatting
I don't have a problem with depth really.
Stick your ass out really far as you are going down, forces the barbell farther forward -> not falling back. Helps me anyway.
hitting depth is only one (small) reason to box squat
box squatting teaches you to sit back, not down. It also hits your glutes and hamstrings better, developing the strength to allow you to sit back without falling over.
Starting Strength has 52 pages on just how to squat and you want someone to teach you proper form in one post
Got ya. I guess what I'm confused about is when you keep your knees above or behind your feet, how are you bending at your lower back? Erect or rounded? I have a bad habit of coming real far forward.
Oh no, not at all. I'm just looking for personal reccomendations. Things that have helped people that may have had bad form at one time or another. Sorry.
