Anything German. Lots of Oktoberfests out right now.

Edit: Doppelbock would be best but probably won't find at a grocery store. Can you find Shiner?

Do I really have a higher deadlift than you for a 1RM? That surprises me.

Not my 1rm, just totaling whatever I'm lifting at. I'm guessing I could probably 1rm around 350 but I've never tried.

Besides I'm not that strong/big so IDK why that'd even be surprising.

Cause you've been lifting longer than I have.
post #34915 of 57266
I think it's pretty safe to say that how long I have been lifting means absolutely nothing, considering how much of an ass I made out of myself "cutting" and sacrificing all the gainz to "stay lean". wink.gif

Any pointers?

The first movement on your squat descent should be breaking at hips and "sitting" back.  A small amount of forward knee travel is acceptable but yours looks dangerous.

  • Obviously a squat features both a knee break and a hip break. What Bush is trying to say by "breaking at the hips" is when the weight shifts forward in max efforts and he sorta starts to good morning the weight up. This is due to weak legs and can be countered by squatting more and doing more front squats
  • Don't worry about how far forward your knees travel. As long as the weight stays on the mid foot, it's perfectly fine. If your heels are coming off the ground then the weight is too far forward.

basically, just keep squatting. Focus on keeping the weight in line with the mid foot and pushing straight up. Eventually your legs will get strong enough and your movement pattern sound enough where you won't pitch forward or back at the bottom of the squat. It's just getting that movement pattern locked down.

Why do you say this? I do high bar with a wider stance, and I break at my hips first, I thought this was correct?
post #34920 of 57266
This is exactly what I love and hate about the squat..... There are so many nuances!
What is traditionally considered lowbar is:
-break at hips
-forward knee travel minimized (depending on your leverages)
-quite a bit of forward lean caused by hips yet not good-morning like
-wide-ish feet (personal preference once your past shoulder width IMO)

Trad high bar:
-break at knees or hips (depending on who you ask); majority of oly lifters break at knees
-forward knee travel is encouraged if you want to be as upright as possible, I prefer a balance where I break at knees then sit back so I don't just have all the weight on my quads (would rather do front squats)
-upright as your leverages will allow (I.e. short femur equals upright, long equals forward lean....I learned this the hard way by overextending my low back to be upright)
-narrow-ish placement (also personal pref, I prefer slightly wider than shoulder)

These are just my observations feel free to correct add your observations.

Btw squats are progressing again, missed deadlift session this week frown.gif Will add extra focus on my bench since I'm a weak presser.
