My question for you is I get a bit of soreness the day after in my lower back from 1to10 I would say its a 2 1/2 nothing a foam rolling in the morning doesn't fix. I dont feel anything during or after the lift the day of. My form feels great to me I get a bounce at the bottom and dont think I am coming to far forward.

Is this a natural b/c of the heavier weight or do I need to work on tightening up my form in some way ? Is there a couple of suggestions you can make as to what form problem I am having with out seeing the movement?

Thanks again for your help and your dedication to the growth of your sport
Hi Cadet,

Some lower back soreness can be natural. the first thing I would suggest is letting me take a look at your squat form. There are several things I can look for that might be causing you to strain your lower back.

Let me know if you have a video available.

If your form is good, then it's time to consider some other options to reduce that.
