I was squatting bare foot so I could get my feet underneath the rack. Dat feel when your feet are wider then the plates.


Srs I only train the squat and deadlift for strength, between 3-5 reps for squats usually with very long breaks and few sets and then some lighter high rep assistance like straight leg deads with 225 for like 15-20 and then bro out the upper body stuff. High volume, tonnes of pressing movements and pull ups.

What do you mean you squat and deadlift only for strength? Or rather, how, just a wide ass stance for both and low reps?

GT, there's next to no reason to ask advice of this gaggle of idiots. There's like eight people here with wildly diverse goals, genetic propensities, and pathologies and most of them just troll most of the time.

I love it too. So much more lateral action. Doesn't bother my neck at all either, at least so far. I'm up to 125x8-10, can't wait to be repping the big plate

rippletoad doesn't know shit about how to teach people to [power] clean

ppl on the SS koolaid need always to be detaught which takes at least twice as long as starting from nothing.

This is so true and I speak from personal experience. My power clean was horrid following SS. I had to actually dedicate some time to it using other resources to learn how to do it properly. Still a work in progress, but I'm much more proficient now than with just SS.

I hate powercleans. I'm very good at them but I think they do absolutely nothing for muscle growth or powerlifting. Strongman competition? probably.

I've honestly never even looked at the SS routine, but why would you put power cleans in a novice routine? Seems like other movements would be safer, easier, and more effective for a beginner.

Can't really tell you. I've read starting strength probably 5 times and I always skip the powerclean section. I'm sure Rippetoe provides a good argument why novices should do them. I really like Rippetoe and I think majority of what he says is sound. He is also one of the few coaches that goes into really why you should do X and goes into the science and body mechanics of why. So at least he presents the science of why you should do this so you can choose to agree or disagree, but at least know why you do. Instead of shit like Brandon Lilly farts out.

Another 20 pound 5RM PR this week.

That's two weeks back to back 20 pound 5RM PR's for my squat.

Be #1 out of current lifters.

Break the list of top 20 all time.

Ideally, #1 of all time total would be my ultimate goal.

(all respective to my weight class of course.. whatever that may be)
