    Oh! I see now you change the subject...
    Do you enjoy trolling? Or are you genuinely that fussed about the fact that I disagreed with your point on squatting?

    id like to think my picture resembles a women lol
    iv done resistence stuff too, and deadlifting, and chin ups/pull ups
    Haha tbf judging by your display pic you look over 20 which I guess makes you a woman It's refreshing to see a girl/woman like you training with a resistance program rather than purely relying on cardio for athletic and aesthetic gains

    The barbell is probably positioned too far forward which is creating a torque, it should be above the middle of your feet when you started and move up and down only, not outside this plane of motion.

    I found I had a similar issue when I started doing powerlifting last summer. You need to find away to shift your weight backwards, as the reason you are shifting onto your toes is that your weight is acting through the front part of your foot/just in front of your foot. Try pushing your bum as far back as possible as you lower into the squat and leaning forward a bit less

    I do, I tried the tests at 2:24..
    Those tests don't make sense. "Do a squat" is not a good test for someone who doesn't know how to squat. I tried the second test, and the only reason to do it standing up as opposed to lying down is because it makes it harder to balance. So you're more likely to fail the test and buy whatever nonsense this guy is selling.


    Working on it has helped a load of people so it's more than likely to be the reason I'm having issues...it's worth a shot and even if it doesn't improve my squats, I'll have flexible ankles which is always a plus...

    Weightlifting shoes or no shoes; regular running shoes are too unstable.

    What position is your back in whilst squatting? This used to happen to me at the beginning, but I corrected it by making sure I drive through my heels and most importantly that my spine/back are neutral and not extended

    Also as a sort of PSA, everyone who gives advice on this question without actually seeing the lift either in person or at least on video is embarrassing themselves.

    Congratulations you read some crap on the internet and now you're parroting it. Must have been very hard.
    Giving some advice on mobility is better than giving no advice At the very least that will improve. But fair point OP should make an account on Sugden and post videos

    Step one: make a new account without 150 followers

    Step two: make this thread again

    Step three: read the advice that isn't from complete spackers and people who want to bang you
    Agree.

    Sorry to those who are genuine, but most of the advice is from people I've not seen around the Gym forums, interesting.
