I've had friends run it.
Some got great results, some not so much.
It's not a super-routine by any means. It's just a sound routine like a lot of other routines out there.
No program is going to consistently add pounds to your 1RM unless you've got the following down:
1. You do things to promote recovery and growth.. eat (A LOT), good sleep, slow down on shit that hampers recovery (drinking, smoking, other forms of training)
2. You bust your ass on everything the routine tells you to
That's about it.
two sets. first set i was thinking about squatting low and keeping my torso upright; this resulted in me losing balance. second set i tried to decrease my back angle ala low-bar squat and kept my hips higher; you can see the weight goes much further back and there's more momentum in the motion. the second set felt better, but i feel like the first would be more beneficial. or... does it even fucking matter?
also, since i enjoy watching people hurting themselves doing stupid things, enjoy the low point of my session today. nfsw for pottymouth
I think they both look decent except that maybe the knees are coming too far forward? I had massive problems with DB swings when I started doing them but I eventually learnt to keep my weight further back while still staying pretty upright. Just like with sumo DLs, it's a matter of how wide your stance is and how much you can open up the hips and push the knees out to the sides (but you already knew that). Looking at the pictures the second ones look a bit better in regards to that, but I think a bit more upright and knees less forward would be ideal.
Charly can probably offer better advice with his experience.
i think it could be something as stupid as me not standing on a high enough platform... i'm always thinking about not bottoming out with the first stance so that could be the issue.
felt the most excruciating pain in the gym today. Did my first work set and felt like my hip could be stretched a bit so I did a mob. Stood up and felt like someone was ripping my leg out of my socket. Fell to the ground and just laid there for 5 mins then went back to squatting
I think this SPBR shit is finally paying off. I need to up my protein and stop eating shit, but I've been making consistent gains. Feels fucking good man.
