Why has god made me tall?

Been doing ATG holds for one month and no progress in my ankle's mobility.

    i just got rid of squats tbh. no point in fighting against your body. I have one leg longer than the other, uneven hips (which make the longer leg actually closer to being even with the shorter one lol), complete shit ankle mobility, and long femurs.

    Struggled with getting good form on squats for so long I just switched them out for bulgarian split squats instead. They are fucking hell but I can actually perform these with good form. Not to mention much better leg development and athleticness

    Only reason to barbell squat is to either compete or tell people that you squat 4 plates. I dont care about either

    the vid is fucking bullshit, if you're a human without severe deformities you have to be able to stay in atg and be comfortable in it.
    use some triangle blocks to elevate heels or fucking olympic shoes and do some atg split squats to increase mobility, look them up on garden gnometube, they're very easy to regress.
    i'm borderline shitfaced but that doesn't matter, anything and anyone disagreeing with the above is a fucking retard.

      I know that feel but don't want to give up.

      And it isn't the first time I heard about BSS.
      Have to try them some time.

        probably the most dyel thing you can say. you most likely cant do low bar either. its usually you not wanting to work on your form and rather just blame it on genetics or some stupid shit like a fatty

        good but not those, atg ss are lunges with maximum knee bend and knee over toes, elevated heels and elevating the leg that bends allows for regression while keeping the full bend, maximally engaging the vmo and working the tendons in the back of the knee on the way up in a safe manner, also hip bend and mobility gains.
        i'm taking the time to type this while a stupid cunt is in the bathroom preparing for sex0r so you better look them up.

          Thanks, I will. Fuck her with my dick for me.

          work on hip mobility. you arent opening your hips when you drop into your squat.
          practice with some deep goblet squats.

          Hmm... I do have shitty mobility. It's much better but can't lift my extended leg above hipline or lower my torso below it (though I suspect that's more of a hamstring issue? 'cause that MF BURNS when doing it).

            start stretching before every workout.
            look these up and use them. hold each stretch for a minute
            -quad stretch
            -psoas stretch
            -hamstring stretch
            -adductor magnus stretch
            -piriformis stretch
            keep that crappy mobility and youre gonna be 30 with sciatica.

    I had to widen my stance. Trying to keep my knees inside shoulder width and perfectly parallel was tearing up my knee tendon.
    Once I widened my stance and angled my thighs slightly the knee pain gradually disappeared.

      I've got no knee problems whatsoever tho. Glad you got your shit fixed

      I just do the movements with no weights for warm up but will try those too.

      I bet you walk like a retard with your feet at a 45 degree angle from straight ahead.

      Work on your ankle mobility.

      Lost your bet. 90° master clownrace here.

    Why not box squats. Like why can't you just get a box on squat on it and build your strength.
    Why are you forcing yourself to this dogma of ATG and high bar. Look you only have one life and do things to reap sweetness at the end of what is to come. Be strong and build yourself . Stop making excuses for what is not, manifest it. OSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSS

      >why can't you
      Because I want my body to do the things I want it to do.

      Get oly shoes, stretch hips and ankles, squat low bar.
      It’s annoying how lifting isn’t a one size fits all sport but everyone acts like it is, tall boys have to pay the mobility tax so manlets can feel better about themselves.

      >olympic shoes
      Feels like cheating. I knows it's retardation on my part but it keeps me motivated.

      just practice doing horse stance, air sits, stationary parallel squats whatever the hell you want to call them. Keep your upper leg parallel to the ground, feet wide apart on the floor, and your back and head straight up and down like a board. You should be able to wiggle your toes, all your weight should be on your ankles. You want to stay in this stance holding as good technique as your can, for about 2 minutes. I'm 6'0 even. Being tall just means you have to spend more time working on your stabilizer muscles and flexibility.

      Just tried it. Can't do it with my back straight, must have a slight angle forward.
      Two minutes? Fuck...
      This looks like fun (and painful). Will add to the stretches and warmups the other anon posted.
      Thanks.
