In this video I go over what I consider best tips to squat deep for tall guys and people with long femurs regardless of height.

I believe this will help a lot of people because I have also struggled with this for a long time.

I’m 192cm / 6’3,5″ tall and now I can easily do true ATG squat.

    Just a clarification in order to avoid further confusion. Most of this videos are actually either LOW bar, or HYBRID squat except the video on 05:00 which is the ONLY high bar example in the video. If you didn’t know that well, now you know. That was all I had at the time of making this video. Will post high bar in the future no problem, with bigger weights also not just 125kg lol.

    You closed a debate between me and my boyfriend. I have long legs and shirt torso and for a woman taller than average… I struggled with balance my weight shifts between heels and front of my feet. I also bow down and I know its not the “heaviness”. I did a few streches and I broke parallel! So thank you.

    What do you think about taking a wider stance for tall guys? I’ve seen a lot of people do it, but every time I try it hurts my hips as go below parallel.

    • Tall Lifts

      January 15, 2020 at 8:35 am

      It’s pretty simple. Your stance width depends on your hip structure pretty much. It doesn’t really matter if you’re tall or not.

      My hips also starts to hurt if I squat a little wider after few weeks. (I tested this specifically 3 times). And I can almost do full splits so the mobility is not the issue here.

      Generally I would suggest everybody to start with shoulder width stance then adjust from there as needed whether it be wider or closer.

      I am a close stance squatter personally.

    At least your lower legs are still close in length to your femur. I’m almost 6’1, and I feel like my femur may be close to your’s in length, but by lower leg is at least three inches shorter than my femur, so it’s awkward to get parallel because of balance.

    To all the true tall guys over 6’6” please give Critical bench a look on on here on squatting; he’s 6’7” and it applies to true tall guys.

    This guy is not tall enough to be teaching this to taller guys at 6’3”, long femurs or not he’s got like a 34 inch leg. My legs are 38 at 6’9”.

    Taller guys don’t do it man.

    • Tyrone Power

      January 15, 2020 at 8:35 am

      Tall Lifts I already know this, my college strength coach wasn’t my height; it’s simple physics. It will be much harder for the guy over 6’6” to go as low as you and it simply isn’t needed for strength. Thor?

    • Tall Lifts

      January 15, 2020 at 8:35 am

      What if I told you that your coach doesn’t even have to be tall to coach you. It’s like, being tall doesn’t automatically make you a movement expert. What a shock I know.. Look at Thor’s coach (or any good coach)…

  9. NascentSats

    January 15, 2020 at 8:35 am

    Terrible form on your squats. You lean forward WAY TOO much on your way up. Terrible for your back. Your spine is loaded during the BB squat. Bending forward like that puts an immense amount of pressure on your discs. One rep like that can cause a bulge or herniated disc and you’ll have that injury for the rest of your life.

    • Tall Lifts

      January 15, 2020 at 8:35 am

      and here I am, 2 years after I made this video Injury free… and total of 13 years of lifting. It’s probably because I don’t know what am I doing… At least watch some of my newer videos if you want to talk shit here…

    Honestly man, your femurs aren’t that long for your height. And that’s the main thing that matters, femur to height. Simply being tall doesn’t mean anything.

    • e.lira

      January 15, 2020 at 8:35 am

      5’2″ girl here and completely agree with you. My femurs are long as f*** compared to my torso and tibia. I have good hip and ankle mobility when doing stretches exercises, but my squat is still ugly as hell.

    • BlueVader4323

      January 15, 2020 at 8:35 am

      Yep, femur lenght to torso lenght is what matters

  12. PoloBear

    January 15, 2020 at 8:35 am

    Really nice video. I used to get so frustrated with myself doing squats with long legs. I never thought I could get down the technique but this video helped a lot. I needed to work on mobility first

  13. hostronic

    January 15, 2020 at 8:35 am

    I have long femurs, a short torso, long arms, and narrow hips. Awesome for deadlifts, not so much for squats. I do band work and use assistance exercises to work on hip adductor/abductor strength and back extensions to strengthen hip drive and my lower back. I do low bar squats with a hip width stance and heeled squat shoes. That’s what I’ve found works for me. Low bar placement combined with heeled squat shoes helps maintain balance within the moment arm of the femurs, while increasing depth and mobility without compromising the back. I use a hip width stance to allow for more recruitment of power from my longer posterior chain muscles to increase drive speed out of the hole, rather than relying on decreased squat distance and the hip extensors for drive. Longer femurs require more support from the hip muscles to maintain stability, thereby decreasing the amount of power they can provide for upward drive. Try using your anatomy to your advantage, rather than forcing it to work in a way it’s not designed for. I guarantee you’ll get results. Great video!! 👍🏼

  26. TheJusticefornone

    January 15, 2020 at 8:35 am

    Hey @Tall Lifts, so if you are taller/ have longer legs, you should move your toes out wider (while keeping your heels about shoulder width) to get your squats low enough, right?

    • hostronic

      January 15, 2020 at 8:35 am

      Basically, yes. Also focus on using your hips to push your knees out while coming into and driving out of the hole. If you have a short torso and long femurs, use that to your advantage and go low bar with elevated squat shoes to recruit more power from your posterior chain, while still maintaining power from your quads. Let your hips act as a stabilizer rather than a primary mover and preserve their energy for the lockout. Longer femurs = more leg muscle = greater leg drive in proportion to hip drive. Either you can just rely on strengthening your hips and increasing mobility (which will only get you so far), OR you can increase hip strength/mobility AND use your anatomy to your advantage.

    • TheJusticefornone

      January 15, 2020 at 8:35 am

      @Tall Lifts What should I do differently (in addition to widening my toes)?

      Ima puno (tisuce) varijacija cucnja. Siguran sam da mozes naci jednu koja te ne smeta. Mogu se razviti noge sa leg pressom, hack squatom ili jednonoznim varijacijama ali ja ne vjerujem u istoj mjeri kao sa cucnjem.

      To je isto kao da pitas dali mozes razviti prsa bez da radis ikakvu varijaciju benca dali bila kosa klupa, bucice, sipka itd. I moj bi odgovor bio isti, mozes ali ne kao i u mjeri da radis benc.

  40. oJackOfSpades

    January 15, 2020 at 8:35 am

    Getting in the right depth is no problem for me anymore. I can basically sit on the floor. The problem I experience as a decently tall guy, is the tipping forward about mid-way up. Sure since my upper leg is so long, I’m gonna have bad angles and bad leverage due to it, thus rendering my highbar OL squat weak… I´ve been searching for a way to squat big weights without looking like a taco, cuz honestly in that case I Might just focus on the deadlift and skip the squat.

    Further more what´s interesting is that I noticed the hacksquat and legpress machines give me MORE leg strength than doing squats! Mainly because (just as you) I tend to slightly bend the weight up with my back when the butt is passin the height of your knees.

    • Tall Lifts

      January 15, 2020 at 8:35 am

      It’s more the technique issue and quad weakness. High Bar Squat, Hack Squat, Leg press etc are your friends.

Ako krenem da se spustim do kraja, cak i sa samom sipkom, gubim balans i hocu da padnem nazad. Jedini nacin da cucnem duboko je ako se savijem u ledjima i dignem na prste, ali onda osjetim ogroman pritisak na ledja i znam da forma nije uredu, malo fali da me tezina prevali naprijed. Tako da, godinama izbjegavam cucanj i radim neke vjezbe tipa cucanj na spravi ili presu, i nisu ni to lose vjezbe ali nije to to… Nista ne moze zamijeniti cucanj, benc i odvajanje. Mozda koristeci tvoje savjete uspijem omeksati clanke i popraviti formu :/

      @Christopher Peralta Very well said. This is the time of the revenge of the evil dwarfs XD Recently crossfit made squatting and deadlifting very popular again and short legs people are very happy… but longer legs guys like us cannot complain for sure. We have huge advantages in many other sports and, like you said, aesthetically too. I’m not giving up on the squat but every structures has is pros and cons so I prefer to focus on my pros and doing the exercises that are the best for me. Lunges are a good example.

    New sub here, really enjoyed your video on the the squat. One quick question, do your knees tend to click and pop much when you are hitting ATG squats? I’ve read a million times that it’s normal, and likely not a problem, but I wanted to get some perspective from someone whose been squatting deep with a semi-low bar/bent over stance. Honestly the depth feels great on my knees, but I’m getting some pops and clicks on almost every rep and it can be kind of scary.. you deserve more subs! I think you are really onto something here!

      Yea in most of this videos is actually a “hybrid” squat, not pure atg. My left knee is clicking on the outer side of the patella I have huge patellas. I don’t really know how dangerous it is to be honest, I personally never had issues with it. I believe it depends what kind of clicking it is. I’ve been tranining for 12 years now, main thing is control, if you’re dive bombing your atg squats you’ll get injured, I’ve learned that the hard way (strained my knees 3 times in 2016)…

    ATG means you sit on your balls

    I’m a 5’5 midget with unusually long femur and when I squat lowbar I end up leaning forward too much to try to break parallel which causes my back to round. Is this due to ankle and hip mobility? Is squatting wider an option or will this put me in a disadvantage?

    • Tall Lifts

      January 15, 2020 at 8:35 am

      It can be a lot of things, I suggest you look for squatting videos of “Dr. Quin about hip structure for squat”..

    For 6’3 you’ve actually got good proportions between lower and upper body. I’m 6’3 and 2/3rds leg 😑

    • Comfy Commentary

      January 15, 2020 at 8:35 am

      If it makes you feel better, I’m like 6’2 and about 2/3rd’s torso, which makes me actually look shorter than I am.

      Yea, that’s actually true. I really do have decent, again, decent proportions considering everything. Personally, I think I have a lot of potential in squat to be honest, even though my proportions aren’t “elite” if you know what I mean…

    do you think I should just give up the battle trying to be perfectly upright? I’ve got really good ankle and hip mobility, but have the long fermur issue, and no matter how much I tweak my technique I cannot get myself to be completely vertical. Front squats on the other hand is quite easy to stay almost nearly vertical.

    • Tall Lifts

      January 15, 2020 at 8:35 am

      Nobody can be perfectly vertical when they do back squat even if they have short femurs.

    Hi! Nice video. I noticed that you look down during the entire squat. What do you think the correct head position should be? I also like to look a bit down but I end up leaning forward instead of keeping my torso more upright. Thanks!

    • Tall Lifts

      January 15, 2020 at 8:35 am

      Hi! I think it depends on your technique, but all in all, spine should be neutral.

  72. Matt Grainger

    January 15, 2020 at 8:35 am

    What was the best way you fixed ankle mobility, i have terrible ankle mobility and even with the highest squat shoes with all the ankle injuries it still sucks.

    • John Kiltcher

      January 15, 2020 at 8:35 am

      Try sitting in a deep squat for a long time (5+ mins) and your squat mobility will improve greatly. Take a look at Ido portals 30/30 challenge, that’s what I did and it worked really well.

    • Matt Grainger

      January 15, 2020 at 8:35 am

      i have to fix both ankles and hips, how long did it take you to get to your current mobility?

    • Tall Lifts

      January 15, 2020 at 8:35 am

      Matt Grainger Hi! The way I did it, it was rolling bottom of my foot with a ball, rolling my calves with a ball, I’m still stretching my calves (also my whole body) before squats. Take a look on Omar Isuf videos for anlke mobility, good stuff. It just takes time, remember that. 🙂

    Definitely need to work more on my hips to feel more comfortable and stable – good tips!

    Good job on your own progress in weight and technique 😉 I bet you’re working on it already, but try to keep your knees a bit longer in position as you ascend ( i also have the habit to be lazy sometimes and let my back do more and more work in the squat as it gets heavier xD)
    Cheers!

    • Tall Lifts

      January 15, 2020 at 8:35 am

      Thanks man! I know what you mean, but if you have long femurs and short torso (most of tall guys) it’s impossible not to use your back, and why woudn’t you? Back consists of the strongest muscles in the body. You should use your hips and back while squatting while having GOOD FORM eg. tight upper back, tight core, good bar path, not get folded over etc. If you want to stay upright and not use your back, do hack squat lol

    I’m 6’8 and whenever I try to go 90 degree squat I fall backwards. I fucking hate squats

    • Tall Lifts

      January 15, 2020 at 8:35 am

      I know what you mean, I have some really tall friends also. In theory you could learn how to do them but they wil probably never feel good for you. Maybe if you don’t want to be a powerlifter you don’t need to do squats, hack squat, smith machine squat, leg press, you have lots of options, just don’t think that leg extensions are going to build you big legs. Have fun with your training man 🙂

      There actually are TALL world class squatters with long femurs so that’s proof that you don’t need to be built for squat to be a good squatter 🙂
