Not surprising you have knee issues. Those shoes don't look appropriate for squatting. I noticed the imbalance, the weight goes to your front of your feet, putting pressure on your knees.

You need squat with only socks/chucks/weightlifting/ something with a decent flat sole- shoes on. And even then, direct the weight to the middle/back, and along the sides, when you squat.

Hope you don't rely on the belt too much either, you lessen the impact of core development, a great results from squatting.

I remember the first video you showed us, the squatting and instability. You mentioned you were self taught? Might want to keep reading on how to squat, or watch youtube videos more thoroughly. You're going to wreck something like those guys that do deadlifts with rounded backs.

forms improved alot bud. I remember biting my tongue watching you perform knee bends in that last video, but you're well on your way to doing proper squats now.

Like others have said, maybe try some flat soled shoes, or something hard to squat on... as you can tell from the video, it looks a bit shaky at the bottom

awesome job nonetheless

IMO you're kinda stuck between a hybrid high and low bar style, you should stick with one

meh as long as the bar is tight on the traps and doesn't shift around when he squats i don't see it being too much of a problem

take a front or rear view, so you can see the compensation due to your recovering knee. I can imagine there is a significant strength imbalance

For squats.... is it wrong to have feet no wider than shoulder width? I feel I can go lower, heavier and work the quads more than if I have a narrower stance. My ass is big enough with hockey non sense.

As Dave Tate has stated before, squats are personal. The most optimal form for each person is in relation to his/her body structure, limb length, etc.

I used to do primarily low bar before but I couldn't get the best depth feet wide apart without anterior pelvic tilt. Also did high bar with the bar on my traps and I could hit atg but I didn't like how that felt on my traps. Now I switched it a mix of both high/low bar.

You really have to keep experimenting and find what works for you.

It's not the steroids that makes the champion but it's hard training .. dedication, the diet and sacrifice and genetics that person has.. what makes the champion.
