Squat Technique

I have problems doing the deep squat with the right technique. I cant maintain straigt form. Everytime Iam near parallel my back muscles begin to "shiver" and get a round back. I believe its a question of flexibility. Can someone help me? I really want to do real squats!

I'm thinking that either...

A.) You have a really weak back. Do you ever do deadlifts?

B.) You're using too much weight. The sticking point in suqats is right around parallel, so partial squats (above parallel) are much easier.

C.) You're using poor form. Try not to think of it so much as squatting down as sitting in a chair. Stick your butt out - as long as you're leaning forward a little bit the weight should keep you from falling over backwards.

1) Keep your chest out, butt out.

2) Feet Slightly more than Shoulder Width Apart

3) Rest the bar below the neck, right along the bottom of the traps

Try Wearing a Belt and see if that helps

My maximum dl is at 160 kg so my back is not bad. I know the technique but I cant mantain it. I even have this problem with just the bar(or even without it).

less weight with proper form > more weight doing it wrong.

Do you have real long thighs? If so, I'm in the same situation. You just have to practice working on balance and flexibility in your quads and glutes. Stick to the bar for a while until you can at least get the tops of your quads parallel to the floor.

Try squatting into a chair to get your form down. That's how I did it, and it helped.

Also if your form is really terrible, try doing it on a smith machine to get your form down before you move to real free weight squats
