post #35341 of 57124
I'm slow off the ground on deadlifts. When I get it past my knees 315 feels like just the bar to lockout, feels so light. What could I work on? I tried deficit deads, they made me stronger but not faster. I was thinking front squats + strengthening the back a lot.

I struggle with the same. PRed with 365lvs sumo last week. The first 2-3 inches were a grind then the bar flew up. Going to test out deficits to see if those help with the initial pull.

Off the floor issues seems to be hip and leg drive. The lockout is mainly hip and back extension. I may be wrong with that (still in a mental daze from banded DL and banded box squats)

stiff leg deadlifts and reverse hypers IMO.

It might also be weak lats. If you're not already add Pendlay rows to make sure your lats are strong enough to be keeping the weight close to your body.

Coldsnap I agree with your self diagnosis of Front Squats and Back Work, for me atleast getting it off the ground was weak quads and upper back.

Lag- What do you think of buttwink at the bottom of an oly style atg back squat? (neutral lower back) I can't get rid of mine no matter how hard I try for some reason :(

you might as well kill yourself because it will not go away no matter how much time you spend on fixing it

buttwink is some rippletoad pos term that is mostly useless. my coach doesn't even know what these things mean and he's pretty good at this stuff. for some people the lumbar kinda tucks a bit under at balls deep, for some it doesn't - not a problem unless you go into flexion.

also hate the mobility bandwagon. I mean if you'd model your chosen sports performance as a function of mobility and flexibility you'd find that it would be a concave function. if you need to perform some specific movement and can't, it's totally fine to use these methods to get you there, but once you're there your 'mobility' doesn't mysteriously vanish into the gently tren-scented gym air overnight.

it's ridiculous as fuck if some guys take like 30-40 minutes 'mobilizing' before they lift.

holy shit, making your feet more straight forward works the adductors like WHAT

I don't know about 40 minutes of mobilization work, but I find that if I spend 10 minutes before lifting with a foam roller and lacrosse ball it makes me feel a lot better.

Also like CS said, I find I recover a lot quicker if I mobilize after workouts as well.

Anyway, I got a question, and while this sounds borderline trollish, bear with me here.

Does anyone experience odd bowel movements when bulking heavy? And by odd I mean mostly diarrhea, and always unexpected. I have to run to the bathroom multiple times a day, it just comes on like all hell and I need to make it there.

I'm eating 95% clean at 3,500 calories a day, I'm eating pretty much the same things as I did when I was "cutting", just a lot more of it, and when I was cutting id go to the bathroom once a day and everything was fine.

What gives?

If you consume lactose, the increased intake on a bulking phase can definitely result in the runs. I have always eaten dairy, but if I push it too far too quickly, I have runs. IE - a high lactose product before and after workout is too much. Also, I tried some of the preworkout that bb.com sent me for free with whey and it fucking violently released my bowls.

The mobility work is because most people in the world don't define "fitness" as being good at squats, deadlifts, and bench press but unable to touch your toes or do a pull-up.  Most traditional compound exercises only work mobility along a single plane, the sagittal, so when you try to do something like lean over on one foot along the coronal (sideways) to pick something up you'll flop over.  

 

If you're not interested in that kind of full-range functional strength, that's cool, but don't discount it as being worthless.

It's a Crossfit term.

Mark:

 

I also had some stomach issues the first time I was bulking. I'd say watch over your fiber intake so you don't take in too much. You don't need more than 10g of fiber for every 1000 calories you consume. Wheat and pasta could cause problems as well. Thinking back now, a large part of my calorie intake during my first bulk was oatmeal, whole wheat pasta, bread, yoghurt, cottege cheese and milk :o.

 

I'm bulking now again but this time around, I'm mostly doing potatoes and rice for my carbs while going lower on the dairy. Aside from less bowel problems, the bloating has decreased significantly as well.

Is oatmeal bad? I thought that was a decent carb source.
