S2Ep4 - Technique Series: Diagnosing Back Angles in the Squat

A more horizontal back angle characterizes the low bar squat compared to other squat variants.  The back angle throughout the squat provides important information about whether the squat is being performed correctly or not.

During the descent, the back angle should set somewhere before halfway down the squat.  Once the back angle sets, the back angle should stay nearly constant during the rest of the descent and coming up out of the bottom.  

Two common errors occur on the ascent of the squat.  Both involve an excessive change in back angle out of the bottom--the back becomes too horizontal or more vertical coming up out of the hole.  Both involve a joint--either the knees or hips respectively--extending without much of contribution to the bar going up.  

Explore these common squat errors, why they matter, and how to correct them as a lifter or coach.
