Just **** around with what feels comfortable for you. Some worldclass Powerlifters go wide, others low while squatting. Personal anatomy.
Have you watched the video to the end? He clearly says at 7:00 that the difference can be in soft tissue and not necessarily in bone structure itself. I can't comment on the core idea, I'm not an orthopedist. Although testing maximum rotation while sitting is a, uhm, curious idea. More importantly, he's, I assume, talking about heavy squatting with a barbell, not about squatting with just your own body.Grönsíir said:
Found this on squats, do you disagree with this Kurczac? Sounds like he knows what he's talking about although you do too.
TL;DR: He says that because of hip bone structure position of the femur some people will find it better to use wider stances while doing the squat.
If you have hundreds of pounds on your back or shoulders and you want to rotate your hips to get the abductors or whatever more engaged and help you out, fine. But in your case, or at least what I got from it, your feet are externally rotated all the time, standing, sitting, walking squatting. That is 100% not right and 99.99% not caused by your bone structure.kurczak said:For really heavy squatting maybe some rotation is ok, but even then it should be a conscious decision, not something your body forces you to do.
Yeah you probably do. You may have a herniated disk, or your hips are just so tight even stretching hurts them or you're stretching exceptionally wrong What exactly were you doing?Grönsíir said:Been doing loads of stretches and workouts for the back and the gluteus minimus especially. My back is now worse.
Think I need a professional.
Inb4 "sets of five for strength, sets of 8 to 12 for hypertrophy"๖Kern said:Hey guys!
Just to introduce myself, I have been doing ice hockey intensively (6 trainings, 2 matches a week) for around 12 years. I've finished my "career" 1 year ago and around 4 months ago, I started doing gym. I have a question though, how exactly does intensity, volume and frequency affect muscle growth, strength and so on..?

Hey! That's a very vague question, I don't think there is any universally agreed upon formula. You must have some experience from your hockey days what works for you, no?
