    I'm on my phone right now, so I can't post a long reply, but your squat needs a lot of work.

    You're going to hurt yourself.

    Maybe start a form check thread in the forum.

    Live always thought the term ass to grass was a bit weird.
    I mean where is the grass?
    Good luck with your goals!

    hahaha thanks CRZA !

    thanks salad! definitely need to work on that and i also need a pair of flat shoes, those adidas running shoes are definitely not good for squatting.

    Today's routine was not so bad I thought it would be much tougher

    45 lb 2x5
    135 lb 2x5
    185 lb 2x5
    225 lb 2x1
    225 lb 5x7

    Back was pretty sore today but overall good workout !

    So you're going to go the route of not fixing your squat.

    Got it.

    I tried staying on my heels and going down slower and staying in control. It could be my shoes that are messing up my squat. What do you think I can work on ?

    What kind of shoes are those? It looks like it has cushioning that is causing you to rock your feet during the lift. Just lift in your socks if you don't have any flat shoes.

    Edit: i just saw your post on top of the page. Running shoes are not good for squatting, i'm sure you already know that.

    It looks like you lowered your training max from your actual max for smolov. That's a great idea. Unlike most here, I don't think it's that horrible to go ahead and do smolov this early in your training career, especially since you lowered your max. You have a partner to hold you accountable and you'll get plenty of practice squatting. I did it right after SS and I think the end of SS might have actually been tougher. What is horrible is that you didn't video your squats. Next time record that shit and post a form check video in the main forum.
