Hello all, I'm pretty new to the forums but I've been lifting on and off for a little. I started early but quit for a while, and now I'm back into the groove with a lot more dedication and discipline.
I started lifting with my current bulking routine July of 09 at 150 skinny as a rail with horrific diet and after some bulking I'm at 190ish (mostly muscle but I got a generous fat bulge in my stomach area. I will be cutting starting march 5th). I am more than happy with my progress but my huge problem is I can't squat. Everyone at my gym gets frustrated with me and won't correct my form. I deadlift, hack squat, leg press, and box squat to make up for it but I want to do real squats. I lose balance every time I try to practice my form and not go over my toes. If I were to try a squat with the bar and any weight I would fall backwards right to the floor.
I searched around a little and saw most of it was dude to a lack of flexibility so I started stretching but anyone have some advice? It seems like nobody has this problem. I am making huge progress on everything I do and I really want to squat and not look like Johnny Bravo walking around with no legs.
