Powerlifting Squat Technique

Re: Powerlifting Squat Form

Posted by: KJM

I have the same problem as you. I am 6 ft 2 and have long way to go down for squats. Being tall I natuarally bend for on the way down (even without any weights). We are about the same strength. I deadlift about 410 lbs for 1 rep. I squat 330 lbs for 3 reps.

Every time I start my hip flexors feel sore. After a few sets they feel better, which would suggest the need for a good warm up. At the end of the squat workout and for the next few days they feel saw again. I have had some knee problems, but not too much now (touch wood).

I don''t have any absolute answers myself, only suggestions which I am experimenting with on a trial & error basis. Every muscle part that feels strained obviousley needs strengthening. e.g when my back was hurting on deadlfit, I started to do Good Mornings in order to build further strength in that area. Knee probelms can be aided by performing leg extensions. Shoulder probelms have been helped with light isolated shoulder exercises. I would imagine that any exercise that isolates the hip flexors would help clear that up too. I know some gyms have a machine for the hip flexors. At the moment I am trying Alternate Lygin Leg Raises (although it does incoporate the lower abs obviousley). My hip flexors do feel good afterwards though).

Carry on doing your heavy deadlifting moves, but with these exercises which isolate specific weak points i would stick to higher reps. Start off with weights which won''t strain you, but as the weeks go on you can build up the resistance quite rapidly.

This is something I have found through my own experience, but I would love to hear further tips and advice (especially about hip flexors), from anyone out there who may know more!
