Here:

As you descend, your knees should not extend past your toes and the first movement you should make (besides activating your core) is pushing your hips back. Your first movement appears to be pushing your knees forward/lowering your butt.

Most of your post is fine and pretty common knowledge.

But what I bolded is completely wrong for a lot of lifter's bar position and stance.

Actually most raw lifters without a super wide stance will have their knees extend past their toes.

Someone wanna recommend a lifting prog? Wanna get big, sick of the one I've been running. Would go back to SS but that apparently gets a lot of hate and I'm probably past it.

Remembering to break at my hips first is something i'm still trying to stick into my head, using that "imagine you're pooping over a nasty toilet protocol."

I've heard different things about the knees tracking toes thing, and here it is again.

Charlie what's your opinion on my squat?
post #32213 of 48518
No, do not break at the hips first. You should be breaking at the knees first for that high bar squat and you are.

Uh, no. Hips lead, knees follow.

this.

will you plebs please understand there is no fucking the one and only way to squat. most of these "dont do x or your z will explode" are totally dependent on how you're squatting, hb or lb, wide or narrow stance

He's doing full depth high bar squats, not box squats, low bar squats, or good mornings.

breaking at the hips is what he should be doing if he wants more hamstring and glute activation - in which case he should be doing low bar squats or good mornings or box squats instead. That's not what he's doing though. He's doing full depth high bar squats. He is correctly breaking at the knees.

Even with a low bar squat you still have to unlock the knees before pushing the hips back.

I have the same issue. It's tough to fix.

Anyone know a quick way to get rid of a cold? I have no headache, stiffness or soreness, running nose, but just a bad cough that irritates my throat. Also have no air to push on my chest day.

Starting to annoy me..effecting my sleep and food consumption ugh

I am looking forward to Friday when I pull DL again. Missed last Friday, again, but pumped to try and pull 300. At the very least I am going to get 275. My breathing will be better as I will be upright.

edit:
And as a result of going to the gym earlier with no spotter I ended up doing chest day with 65 lb dumb bells in lieu of the barbell...until I man up and just start benching again at 135 and move up progressively on my own. If I had more energy without this cold I'd probably go up to 70 lb in flat and incline, or manned up for the barbell.

You guys ask for randoms to spot or you have a dedicated few friends/gym bros?

Chest day is the only day I would feel comfortable with a spotter. Squat and DL I can manage on my own.

What are good movements to work the quads aside from squats? I feel like proportionally my glutes/hams are ahead, so I want to add additional work to isolate quads.

I also figured out how to better adjust my GHR. Damn, that's a real nice burn. Then just flip over and start doing sit-ups. Solid purchase.

Does your gym have a full rack? It seems like you go late enough that you wouldn't have much trouble commandeering one to bench in. The gym I was going to had half racks for all the big compounds, rather than squat rack/olympic bench, so I just used the spotter arms an inch or so below the line of my chest when arched to bench. If you fail, lower the bar and wiggle out.
