When I’m performing a barbell squat, I’ve noticed I have a small amount of butt wink, causing lower back tightness post workout. I’m pretty de-trained when it comes to squatting but due to covid lockdown I’m forced to train from home for now.
Today I really noticed how uncomfortable my hip flexors were on the eccentric. Do you think my hip flexors are running out of travel when getting towards parallel depth & below, causing my spine to round as a result? My ankle mobility isn’t amazing but doesn’t seem to be a limiting factor.
I’m already doing core activations and dynamic stretching before squatting also. Is there anything you can recommend to rectify this so I can progress with squats when I’m forced to train at home?
