I have a black foam roller. Usually only do back and hams/glutes tho. Will definitely try some some shoulder exercises. 

Thanks for the tip. Will try it next time.

Yea, I have like some weird reaction to the dye. Maybe it was in my head.

It makes a big difference theoretically if you're doing any form of keto and/or doing a peak week protocol. Don't know too many guys who would carb load on apples and soda.

This is actually my first time actually giving sumo a shot. Been at it for about 3 months with just light weight and volume. About my 3rd week going heavy with it.

My bad, got confused with Dan green where he trains a lot of conventional but pulls sumo in meets. They definitely looks good so far!

No, no, get me confused with Dan Green more! biggrin.gif

Dan Green trains both in training actually. A bit more conventional though. But yea, both.

Charly, something I've been wondering, do you go into a meet knowing how much weight you're going to do, or do you try for actual PRs at the meets?

Anyone know of a good tutorial on how to unrack bar for front squat? Not getting the bar on my shoulders completely. Might be a mobility issue.

Is the bar too high? Make sure your elbows are high when unracking and squeeze them together (and should stay high all the way), fingers are outside of your shoulders and not getting crushed between the bar and your shoulders. If you can do it with just the bar then drop the weight and work it down. It should be comfortable once you get used to it.

i feel this is apropos

just like eason said, couple of fingers under the bar, just outside shoulder width, elbows up and chest high, bar very close to your throat sitting on the shelf created by your shoulders.

and obviously think squatting between your heels, torso very upright, stance about shoulder width toes not excessively turned out. knees past the toes is no problem at least if you're going deep.

Anyone have tips on getting inhibited glutes to fire properly?
post #33419 of 57262
dimel deadlifts, db goodmornings, ghr? Lots of ham engagement too, but should work your glutes.

I go in knowing with the following knowledge..

  • Openers - all but certain I know what they'll be
  • Second attempts - 85% sure what they'll be
  • Third attempts - I have a rough estimate of that I will shoot for


I usually tie a meet PR in the second attempt and go for meet PR's in the 3rd attempt but that's not always the case.

For example, my last training cycle went really well, so I set new meet PR's with my second attempt on squat and deadlift. And I set meet PR's on all three attempts for bench.



To answer your question in short, I aim to do both of those things. In an ideal meet, I would have my numbers setup to hit meet PR's, not change any of my attempts, and hit all 9 attempts.
