correct squatting form?


Welcome to the EliteFitness.com Bodybuilding Site! Please join this discussion about correct squatting form? within the Weight Training & Weight Lifting category.

Excerpt: I was squatting yesterday and some dude ran up to me in a hurry and told me to stop and then showed me what he felt like was the right way to squat. he was super cool and even wrote down his tips. he said to put the bar on the lower traps 5 inches from the shoulders. tilt your head up and let the knees bow in a little. this is correct?

    Re: correct squatting form?

    the placement of the bar is one thing. actually using proper technique is another

    one of the ways you can fool proof this is front squats and going ass to grass. you aren't going to cheat your way out of that

    So-called 'high bar squats' (top of the traps) is more for bodybuilders. Low bar is more for powerlifters.

    One thing that helped me early on was to envision sitting down on a chair vs bending at the knees.

    Unfortunately, there's no one correct way to squat. A lot depends on specific bio mechanics. That will determine how wide your feet should be and also what angle your feet will be. Apart from the obvious high bar and low bar.
