Most cable machines here go way higher than that. I currently use a wide straight bar and do tricep pushdowns for 2 sets of 20 reps with 130 pounds, usually supersetted with curls. Sounds weird now that I write it out, cause my bench is not much higher than that.

Pretty sure most cable machines reduce the weight by 2 because of the pulley system.

Why even bother when you can just take synthol?

Yours probably has a pulley on the weights rather than a direct attachment, which cuts the weight you feel at the bar in half. If you were doing 130lb tricep push downs for 20 reps you would have monster arms. In my experience tricep pushdown x 2 = flat bench

Another board I am on is talking about home gyms. All I would need... power rack, adjustable bench, dip/chin rack, and if it exists a 300lb 1:1 cable column machine. Then a barbell w/like 500 lb of plates and a few dumbbells. One day...

Thanks for taking a look! Yes, I have consistent issues with the hips rising early and not finishing the second pull (i have been working a bit on the McCauley drills). I think it is very slowly getting better. Someone once mentioned to me that leading with the back foot was better, but I guess I never corroborated it - I'll definitely keep it in mind next time.

I think we both have the same problem in that we often don't stay upright on the first pull and do it more like a deadlift than an olympic style pull.

 

Thanks for the kind words. I feel like Ive made some reasonable recent progress with the jerk, but still a few issues. The dip is still forward, Ive got to work on staying on my heels better here. I think my back foot needs to go backwards quite a bit further too. I should really try to do more oly work, because I enjoy it, but I can't get to the gym more than 3x a week and I like all the other stuff I do as well. When I have a home gym...

I think actually hips rising a little early is natural. Somebody posted an article awhile back that freeze framed videos of dead lifters and every single one of them has their hips a little up

deadlift ≠ clean, maintaining the same back angle during the 1st pull is critical.

I see

Just had my last training at the gym where it all started and I have been a member for years now. Sad to loose my training bud who has become a good friend frown.gif
Will be moving to London within the month so I'll have to find an acceptable gym there now.

Did squat a new PR (150kg) today tho in an ultimate grind.

I apologise, I didn't mean to question the veracity of your advice. I haven't had coaching, just learning from books and videos. I think the footwork thing was mentioned at the gym (you can see I got to a random globo gym) and with all of the other things I need to work on it kind of dropped off the list of things to check. I'll definitely try to remember for next time.

no need to, just referencing my sources

it has to do with how your hips shift under the bar as you recover iirc
