    Proper squat


    I thought i was doing really good on my squat. I weigh 160 and on my 4th set of 10 i was up to 325.
    Today i decided to get real and work on perfect form and timing. I was doing 3-1-3 timing and going deep,Thighs parallel to the ground. 165 Lbs 5 sets totally kicked my butt.

    Is there a question? And proper depth means breaking parallel. That means your hip joint needs to drop below the top of your knee. Don't worry about where your thigh is. I'm not saying you weren't getting proper depth, just telling you how proper depth is determined.

    No question, just pointing out how effective less weight can be when using proper lifting technique.
