      Kstar has really changed the way I look and human movement and has made a SIGNIFCANT impact on the way I coach. I have my own video project and I’m sure that someone in this community feels similar to the way I do. To be a supple leopard. Review my squat review and post a comment on what you think I should work on. Thanks. http://youtu.be/RPuETbZhl3E

      Looks fairly good. 

      Your doing a back squat though, which is probably the easiest of all the squats. I would suggest pushing yourself to doing front squats and/or overhead squats. 
      As for the video quality, I would say edit out the un-important parts. Make is as condensed as possible.  Get 5-10 squats from the front and side. Make sure you always show your ankles and arches.

      Don’t know the heel size of those shoes but they are making it easier and doesn’t shoe your true ROM.  I guess its ok for high bar squats. You seem a little ducked out.  

      Edit to add:  Whats with the voodoo band during your working sets?

      @thor thanks for the suggestions for video editing. I will definitely do that next time. Ankles and arches = important. duly noted.

      @Daniel yes the heal helps a lot. A little ducked out? i’m hella ducked out. I’m very stiff.  The only reason why I’m able to get that low is because of the weight pushing me down.

      About the voodoo band. I get some quadricep tendonitis and it makes it go away. I’m using it as a jerry-rigged knee brace.

      Another note. I am stiff as f***K. I just started doing front squats, and PR’d a 45lbs overhead squat for 5 reps yesterday by doing this mobilization.. I know it’s embarrassing, but I’m working on all this stuff.

      i even wore a belt so my back wouldn’t go out.

      I’m striving to be like my daughter.

      I’m a roppy leopard as of right now.
