Powerlifting Squat Technique

Posted by: jkinnan

I was wondering if anyone could give me a few pointers and advice. Everytime I squat, I end up walking like a 90 year old because my knees and hip flexors are so torn up. On top of it all, the only good productive pain I get from squatting is in my lower back -I don't really get any fatigue or soreness in my quads. I think some of it may have to do with my physical structure: I'm about 6 and a half feet tall, and my legs are fairly long . . . it's a long way down for me to go to paralell.

I just started training seriously about 6 or eight months ago. Could this be a factor? My deadlift is doing fine -I hope to be maxing at around the 400 mark in about two months. When I squat though, I'm lucky to do 3 or 4 reps with 315. I have moved to Smith Machine front squats -they're easier on my back and suprisingly I can go down ass to ankles with only moderate knee stress. But I still wish I could do free squats with out feeling like a senior citizen for days.

Am I the only one who has this problem? I'd really love some advice or pointers. Thanks a bunch.
