It's called "butt wink" and it's harmless.4:19 - watch the vicinity of the L5 at the bottom of the squat...not sure if it's anatomical or technique related but that exact movement his pelvis is doing at the very end of the squat before coming up is textbook for how to cause disc injury wear and tear (no pun intended) in the workplace...so imagine the disc pressure when it's loaded.
This is a simple matter of bone, disc, and flexion - muscle isn't gonna help. Like putting any joint in a really bad position.
How much do you squat?I would guess it's anatomical and makes sense some people could safely squat deeper than others based on this...this guy probably shouldn't be going that deep.
This honestly doesn't seem like it's for you, man.
