    Any issue with my squat (particularly the tempo)?

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sjWupWCSGy0

    I've been doing sets of 5x3 for my barbell squats (as opposed to 5) ever since I hit the 2 plate mark.

    This morning I've done sets of 280 lbs for my squat and I noticed that in this weight, I needed to take 2-3 breaths between each rep. Is the period of time between every rep problematic? I don't want to my 3 rep sets to be technically singles with 5 seconds of rest in between. I could've gone a maybe half an inch deeper but it could be the camera angle since I put my phone on the ground against my water bottle.

    I personally think the tempo is fine. As you get closer to your 1rm the total oxygen cost of completing the lift is going to increase. On heavy stuff I personally do the last 2 reps with a bit of a rest so that I can hit my rep/weight.goal for the session.

    I think your bar path may need some attention. There's quite a bit of horizontal movement from the start to end especially on the last rep. Which is probably a waste of energy.

    Just my 2 cents. Good luck m8.

    Also strong squat! Seems you've made some good progress.

    The bar path is bad, it's shifting over your toes at the bottom as your torso leans all the way forward like you are doing a good morning. I think your tempo is fine.

    Your technique isn't that bad at all.
    As mentioned that third rep your back is probably getting fatigued and need to stay tight so you don't go forward compared to the previous reps.
    Some good mornings may shore up this weakness/endurance in the back for your squatting.
    You might also post this in the powerlifting section if your after strength gains.

    Looking back at this vid, yeah the bar path is a little off... I try to "break the bar" across my entire back (a tip I've seen from Alan Thrall's vids) although I can see it's not working at this weight. Anyone got tips to remedy this?

    Also is a 280 lbs squat really that strong? Idk but it seems more of a late beginner to me. Anything over a 405 lbs squat is strong lol.

    If you want to low-bar squat, you should use the powerlifting cues. Your knees travel forward way too much and initiate first which makes it a lot harder to hit depth and you end up trying to create mobility elsewhere in order to do so. Generally the main cues for that is knees out (which should generally limit forward knee travel) and push hips/butt back.

    https://barbell-logic.com/156-the-kn...-in-the-squat/

    A good external cue would be to have some sort of stand or long foam roller which is just beyond where you want your knees to be. You can place it on the left or your right side. When you squat, if you touch that stand/foam roller with your knee, it means you've gone too far.



    people give Rip flack but this video should be helpful. Note how little the knee travels and how he has opened up his hips to allow room for his torso to hit depth. You are either going to want to shove your knees/point out your toes or try a wider squat stance.

    Is this an improvement? I felt weaker in the gym today and I could on do a single rep as opposed to 3.
