When you squat should you drive wit your heels when going up only or the whole foot? What is the proper from for squats,alot of guys at the gym i train have different ideas,so yea i would like to know from you guys..
Get big and ripped or die trying!!
for what it's worth, I am not a competitive lifter, I have squatted weekly as a part of my leg day for years. I lift off my heals or sometimes the whole foot. If I am rolling toward the forefoot, I am making my lower back vulnerable by hyperextension. This is a bad thing. I know many guys who have lifted for years and do not squat because of lower back problems.
I love this exercise for its total body involvment and would not like to give it up. My friends who do not squat do light sissy squats on a machine and lunges.
And we'll collect the moments one by one. I guess that's how the future's done. Feist, "Mushaboom", 2005
