black cherry greek yogurt + chocolate whey = amazing

i have noticed a hilarious increase in my recovery between sets after 3 weeks of supersetting antagonistic movements. obviously the first incremental benefits will be the greatest, but im resisting the temptation to drink the kool-aid here.. i think my coach is on to something

As far as scraping knees, this also shouldn't happen if you are doing it right. Proper DL technique has you keeping your torso at the same angle until the bar travels above the knee, then increasing then opening up the hip. If you are scraping your knees, it's probably because you are opening up the hip angle/changing your torso angle too early. Focus on keeping your shoulders directly above the bar until the bar is above your knees. This should help.

Now, scraping shins is another problem, and is inevitable if you are deadlifting properly.

re-bending? lol if I don't change the angle of my torso until the bar goes past my knee then I'm 70% of the way to lock out with all the weight going to my lumbar spine.


lulzy workout today,

brb deadlifts x 5 up to 405
brb using a stability ball to barely BW squat 45 times. Fuck my quads/knees were weak from only low-bar squatting. It felt good to use a spikey-roller to roll-out my injured hip flexor. Got one of those spikes right in there and humped it for 10 minutes. Hurt so good.

Actually. He is correct. That is a sign of re-bending at the knees whilst deadlifting. Or you're just lowering the bar incorrectly.

lemme ax again, what does re-bending at the knees mean?

While the bar travels from the floor to lockout, your knees straightens out right?

Well re-bending occurs usually when the bar is right past the knees where the knee bends again (sometimes very slightly, sometimes a lot) to ramp the weight up on the thighs. This is not the correct technique and will also get red lighted in competition.

Thanks. Don't think I do that, I'll keep that in mind and have my next PR on vid

So scraping of the shins is normal, really?

I asked this question because a friend that does crossfit told me I was deadliftng wrong.

I try to follow the form shown on t-nation.

Is a crossfit DL where you fill the bar to the end with massive 10lb bumper plates then drop all your reps, including warm-up weights, as soon as you hit lockout?

yes, if you aren't wearing pants/long socks your shins will bleed. i think everyone posted a bloody shins pic a couple pages ago confused.gif

I have no idea, I don't follow the crossfit trend.

I was simply doing a deadlift, I'll post a video when I get to a computer.

yes i know this i am a certified judge

there's a difference though in delivering the hips in the 2nd pull and pissing blood and having black thighs after each clean. namely it's the difference between good and shitty technique.

unless the dude wasn't talking about banging the bar out, if so then nevermind.
