Squat Til You Drop

Hi guys thought I'd share a couple of really interesting videos on squatting bio mechanics that are an absolute MUST SEE for those of us with long femurs. Lifters with long femurs will often have a comparatively weak squat (especially compared to their deadlift) and will most probably not enjoy them a great deal as we tend to fold into a crumpled mess instead of keeping an upright torso and ensuring maximum quad activation.

As the videos explain with just a minor adjustment of foot width it is quite easy to assume the bio mechanics of a more genetically blessed squatter as it reduces the relative length of the femur in the line of force and allows the torso to stay more upright throughout the squat.

Progress shot, a little thicc but feeling strong
