Raw Lowbar Squat 325lbs - What's weak? Lower back flexion

Recommended Posts

This was done with no belt and no wraps. It's 325lb's. I thought it looked really good at first but then went back and noticed the lower back flexion on the way up. I'm attributing this to going lower than parallel and lacking glute/ham strength.


This is a pretty big PR anyway since I just started lowbar squatting without wraps/belt to tighten everything up!


Look okay though?

Well, if your form was perfect, it probably wouldn't be a PR - definitely see the lower back flatten right out.  You bottom out and it flattens, but it looks to be good coming out of the the bottom.  Then on the ascent grinding through the sticking point it flattens.  I'd just chalk it up to PRs being hard.
