      Can you guys check my form?


      This is my 2nd set, and 165 lbs. I've been going up 5 lbs every workout for about 3 weeks, and I just hit 165. Wasn't feeling it today, so I didn't go low enough on some of my reps, and it was quite difficult for me. Should I keep going up 5 lbs every workout, or should I stick with this weight and focus on form a bit more? I can go up 5 lbs again, and still get all my work sets done, but I'm not sure my form would stay in shape. Did a lot better my first set. :/

      Did a lot better my first set. :/

      Also audio swapped some music I found suitable for the Teen BB section for an optimal watching experience.

      It's hard to judge your form properly from that view but from what I could tell you have a bad habit of resting the bar along your neck - don't. The bar should generally rest on your traps.

      I don't think so...

      I have 0 neck pain at all when I squat, perhaps it's the angle.... Pretty sure there in my traps.

      ^keep the bar on your traps, and also you could squat a little bit deeper imo, not quite at 90 degrees. otherwise good

      If the bar was on my neck, I would be feeling a lot of neck pain. I feel 0 neck pain. Pretty sure it's not on my neck. -____-

      I'm not entirely sure because of the funky angle, but it looks like your knees are going past your feet.
