I've been having a pro body builder help me with my legs and he constantly yells at me that if my *** doesn't touch my heals, the rep doesn't count.

It dropped my "max squat" 40 or 50 lbs from when I was going to just 90 degrees.

That's because they actually work your muscles unlike the half squats most people do.

They suck because after I do them, I can't walk the next day.

Have you had any gains with this new squat technique? Any notable hypertrophy?

I squat slightly passed parallel to the ground but by no means am I going *** to heels like an Russian Olympic lifter front squatting. Lol

How do you prevent your lumbar from flexing forward when you get that low? Can you post a pic of your technique with a loaded bar? (No homo) :-)

look up. Seriously sounds weird but I do 90% front squats (don't like back, hard on the knees).


Notice how he is essentially sticking his butt out while flexing his lower back and core to hold, that's how you keep your back when doing front squats, whether it's to the floor or past 90. As long as you're not stopping before 90 you're still getting what would be considered full ROM (range of motion). Just start really light when you move to full squats and get the technique down before adding weight.

[ame="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tDVNM9Yto7E"]video[/ame]this video shows how to keep your back.

I don't have a picture, Im sure my back bends, but that is why I have a weight belt. I push my abs against the belt, look up towards the ceiling and drive my heals through the floor. I don't go up until my hamstrings hit my calves.

I don't have massive legs, right now I'm trying very hard to just get into proportion with my upper. In the last 8 months I gained 1/2" on my calves and 1" or so on my thighs. I measure about every 3 weeks, so those gains are pretty accurate.
