i think the reason i hate squats so much is because im not pushing off my heels, so my form is shit, so i cant improve with this bad form and thats why my knee always hurts

also how did u guys learn front squats, youtube? they look a little complex but i wanna do them more for quads isolation

Are you doing low bar or high bar? I had the same problem (I actually used to put my heels on a 2x4 to help) but since moving to low bar I find that it's much easier to push with the heels (and just about every other part of a squat is easier)

just doing a set of each I could already feel the isolation more so than using dumbbells/plates to shrug. traps here I come!

Teaching aid that I learned with squats is to keep your feet flat pointing slightly out and roll your ankles outward. Focus on that and you'll be able to push off your heels easier

Word.

I hope you have the bar resting on your shoulders, not being held by the wrist. Sort of like back squats as well, you don't want to put pressure on the wrists.

Front squats, the fingers should just stabilize it on the shoulders and wrist should be inline with forearm.

Whoa......

I think you can do 3 plates DL.........lol. 2 plate hang clean is solid stuff.
I'm at about 185 hang clean PR, and I can do 315 for 2.

On a side note, I'm quitting the gym..............., damn females....strong.

Apparently it incorporates more of your legs but more difficult than conventional for me.
