    Form Check Squat

    I usually preform suno squats because it seems more comfortable on my knees but lately I've been going for regular squats. I never liked them because they feel so awkward for me. Leg day use to be just iso parts for me but I'm moving for more compound lifts now. How is my form? I know I could probably go deeper but I made a post recently about trying to unlock my hamstring tightness so this is what I got so far.

    Edit:
    Should I lower the weight and try to go really deep?

    If you can't reach depth because of mobility or flexibility, I would go with unweighted or goblin squats rather than using weight on the bar to try to force it.
    I can tell time. Time cannot tell me.

    Good suggestion. Do this until I can get better mobility? Just seems so hard for me to get deep.

    I also feel like I can't squat deep enough, and have buttwink issues. The following reads could perhaps help you assess what could be done to fix your problems:

    I see no mobility issue, your knee travel is fine.

    Widen your stand a bit and set unlock your hips first then shove knees out as you descend. You'll find you hit depth easier than just shoving knees forward.

    I found that practicing bodyweight squats with a purpose really opened my hips up.

    Not just lifting-type squats to parallel, but full on Asian/Toddler/Malasana squats.

    OP, as you lift heavier weights keep an eye on that pronounced pelvic thrust you're doing at the top of your squat as it may put your back in a less than ideal position.

    Yeah you can still squeeze your glutes without the thrust, like you did on the last rep.
