When i do them my glutes and hams get umcomfortably tight and it fells awkward the moment i first stand straight again. Am i doing sth wrong? It is not much weight. My squat is up to 95kgx3, my DL 120x1 and my bench 60x3.
Please let me know what you think.

Pendley Rows 45kg:
I think that's actually a 65kg pendley row, looks to me that you're not counting the weight of the bar itselft in all of your lifts. I also feel my glutes and hams tightening when I do bb rows but that's the way I put my self with a flat back wich is ok to me and I don't mind getting a little extra glute/ham work.

Thank you for your opinion guys! Yes, i don't count the weight of the bar, but isn't that usual at least in competitions?

Nope. The weight of the bar always counts.

Hi all,

I keep struggling with proper form on my squat.
I specifically wonder whether my lower back is fine. My buttwink was way worse before and has improved a bit through a lot of hamstring stretching.
Weight in the video is 60kg at a body weight of 75kg; it doesnt even feel that heavy but it's enough to have my knees cave in a bit.
Video is here:

Thanks a lot in advance!

I noticed that you are doing a high bar squat with a wide stance, why are you doing that?If your goal is to get a bigger squat, set the bar lower on your back, and not on your traps.

After the first rep you start leaning forward, and thus changing your center of gravity forward which causes you to lean forward a bit.

Get the bar down on your back, sit back(which you are doing),focus on pushing your knees out,use a more challenging weight and see how it goes.

Yeah, everything but the bar placement is classic "low bar" style. Might as well put the bar there.

Starting Strength: Video

A bit long, but there's some good information in there.


edit: Or alternatively, you could try a classic "high bar" style instead. In other words, a closer stance, and a more upright position throughout.
