Squatting & bowed legs
I've been working on squatting for a few months now, but haven't been able to break through 55kg.
Now, below my knee the shin bends inwards meaning I have slightly bowed legs and Im wondering if this could be a contributing factor as to why I can't really squat any weight?
I know my technique is far from perfect but can anyone advise if there is any research to suggest that it's harder to squat with bowed legs?
I don't feel any pain when I squat but I find it very difficult to keep my lower leg/knee in line with my foot.

Based on the little I know, I'd say that the bowed shins on their own wouldn't be a problem.
But if this in turn stops you keeping your joints in line while squatting then that will hinder your ability to lift as the weight increases.
