    Excellent thread. Thanks guys. I'm trying to learn squats and finding that I possibly have a mobility / flexibility issue. Ill have to read this through a few times and see if I can work out what I'm doing wrong or how I can achieve / improve to reach proper form.

    I just got started a day earlier on my first squat. Excellent to both review the technique I used, and get more insightful info. Thanks for the post

    Dear god that will be embarrassing (I know, ill have to get over that). My saving grace is that I don't have a video camera Currently I'm struggling with the technique even without any weights I think its a flexibility issue / mobility issue. I'm one of those unfortunates that can not get anywhere near touching my toes.

    I have a question regarding the flaw mentioned about knees caving in. You said that it's a sign of weak glutes leading to overpowering of the adductors. But for anyone who has read Starting Strength by Mark Rippetoe, he discusses the cause of knees caving in as a sign of weak adductors and not abductors as most commonly believe. I'll have to dig out my book and search for that part, but i'm pretty sure that's what was explained in Starting Strength.

    I have a pain, that I think is coming from squatting;

    If you crouch into a squat, the crease created between your stomach and thigh. If you follow that plane to the bone. Pretty much the front of the hip.

    I can feel it when I go deep and then just generally the day after walking etc. (since I am squatting heavy 3 times per week I feel most of the time)

    I started lifting properly again about 3-4 weeks ago.

    I had a similar pain for a few weeks. I just kept squating all gone now.
    I had thought it might of been an old injury. Though all depends how serious the pain is.

    You probably should have eased your way back towards a high intensity / heavy squatting routine, if you spent a fair time away from lifting.

    How's your flexibility? . As it's sore/painful when you reach a "deep" squat - (how deep?) - it may simply be tightness causing the pain. In fact, most issues relevant to squatting tend to be a flexibility issue at the hip, knee or ankle joints.

    Otherwise, are you adequately warming up prior to your squats?
