Getting super frustrated. I have been doing my best to work on flexibility for squats, but I can't seem to improve my squat depth. Unsupported, my back/butt starts rounding underneath me at about the half way (maybe just past half way) to parallel mark. Don't know what else/other stretches to do other than the ones that are recommended online.

How do you squat (stance/bar position)? I have the same issue tbh. I switched to low-bar, semi-wide stance (toes pointing a bit out) a couple of weeks ago and my squat started getting much better and deeper...

Might be a technique thing. Don't try to overarch or sit back too much in the beginning. Try to keep your back neutral, sit straight down and open up your knees at the bottom. I know a lot of people are taught to arch hard and sit back as far as they can, but IMO that only works for powerlifters that squat to parallel (at best).

PS. keeping your core tight as fuck helps too.

I want to log my progress (if there is any) here. I decided to dedicate February to improving my squat. Starting Monday I will start the Smolov base mesocycle (3 weeks) and test my max during the fourth week. I will still work out my upper body during those days (will do a push/pull exercise).

So far my squat max is 405 and I just pulled 495 yesterday. I'm looking forward to week 4!

Judging by how strong your bench already is, you're gonna be a monster!

A 4 plate bench is amazing, period! Pound for pound stats always fav smaller guys so don't worry about it. Absolute strength is just as important IMO. If you wanna compare yourself against smaller guys, it'd be more fair using a wilks score.

My form is pretty good overall. Personal trainer I had to focus specifically on squats and DL's had me dialed in in form, and addressed my hip flexibility as to the cause of the rounding.

Thanks man! I guess so. I'm still not at 4 plates for bench yet. I hit 355 on Thursday and failed my attempt at 365..

Second week of Smolov base complete! First 7.5 workouts were brutal, had to grind out almost every set in pain. Half way through today's workout I switched to a narrower stance with toes pointed out slightly more and everything just clicked. No more back or hip pain and much more power outta the hole. I swear that's how I used to squat, but somewhere along the way my form turned to shit.

On a related note, hitting upperbody as hard as ever while doing Smolov. My workouts are lasting 2.5-3hrs now but I'm actually setting small PR's in bench and overhead press after squatting. Pretty ecstatic since all my lifts were down 10% during the holidays.

were you going ATG with the narrower stance? I'm thinking this is more of an olympic squat with its emphasis on quads and ankle drive

Many weeks ago, I did it with a plate, and it felt alot better for my knees, versus wide stance parallel which placed alot more strain onto my knees. Strictly speaking for my acl sprain, I feel like I can squat with the lighter weight with alot less pain in the knee.

Can't wait till my knee gets better so I can fucking squat heavy again

I've been trying to go ATG with both stance. But ATG with a wider stance makes everything hurt lol. But yeah, you're right, my squatting style is pretty close to an olympic style squat. My old "wide" stance is only about shoulder width, and my new closer stance is slightly inside shoulder width.

How is your knee rehab coming along?

Btw, me and hotong will be coming to cheer you on next week! haha
