Feel that im not generating power in bottom/back to standing position of squat.
Tryed using belt to support the lower back because of a muscle injury, and are able to generate more power, but not much.

Also after a squat session i get light cramps in gluteus medius.

Is it my lower back thats the weak spot or my gluteus?

What assistance exercises can i use to even this up?

sorry about the bad english, not from english spoken country.
A video would be more helpful than anything. That way we could actually see your form and everything else that may be going wrong with your squats.
