Still looks lowbar to me :P Do you have a GHR? You could really benefit from one if you could afford it. Looks good, you got a lil butt wink going on and looks like the bottom part is where you're weakest at.

GHR is in the video wink.gif

Sounds about right on all counts. Hard not to butt wink a bit when I go that low. Will work on developing juicy glutes.

Cool, seems like you got a pretty sweet setup there. I've never had problems with butt wink and my glutes have always been strong. I think it's a strength thing instead of mobility. You gonna hit 225 5 x 5 soon icon_gu_b_slayer[1].gif I can't wait to get back on a 5 x 5, miss grinding those out.

I'm going to start writing my program. I agreed to do a strongman meet in February so pretty excited about incorporating some of those movements into my training.

Hope so, progress on squats has been really great recently. I did officially start my cut though (I know I said I'd bulk longer... but getting toooo fat), so we'll see what happens.

Strong man sounds like a lot of fun. Take videos when you do it!

I don't possibly see how you could see yourself as fat! But to each his own biggrin.gif

Because I joined styleforum and developed a massive sense of self loathing.

But more seriously, love handles, kills any and all aesthetics. Plus I'm probably sitting around 20% body fat right now. Would like to lean out before visiting home at the end of the year and see old friends mwink[1].gif

I've been adding in a few things to work on weird little accessory muscles, like lunges on a bosu ball and some core work.  Ugh why is it that the exercises you need the most suck the hardest.

Yeah I've gained maybe 6 pounds since the beginning of september but I'm starting to lose definition.  At least it's not beach season.

don't do this.

If you're worried about stability etc just play some sport.

Speedy- Tell me about it what kind of retard takes 20 years to achieve that when the kid is only around 20kg behind him with 1 ish years of solid training.

VLSI- Looks like your lower back is rounding in the hole, try to do some anterior hip/ankle stretching to get yourself more upright as well as thinking of dropping yourself between your legs (assuming high bar). But tbh I think that will come with practice but do the hip stretches anyway!

TKTG- Try clean pulls for your traps but what your doing should get you results even if they are boring.

EDIT:

Graphic can you provide more info on knee being loose? Knee cap moving around easily or synovial fluid making bubbly sounds that freak you out? (Go see a doc. if it hurts)

LOL @ facebook friends who think squats are bad for your knees
post #35516 of 57313
Hm clean pulls sound interesting. Would be nice to be able to load up the bar with a bit more weight and it looks like I'd def be able to do so.

Eason, saw that lol. What a dummy.

There's other types of conditioning training that mix better with heavy lifting. 

I've done a fair amount of reading on the subject and it seems like you want to do something that's less harsh on the joints ( know my low back and knees don't always agree with long runs) and that does not build up lactic acid (as that could worsen DOMS and recovery).

 

"Tempo Work" is pretty great. It's basically a short interval circuit where you switch between cardio and some strength movements for a couple of rounds. I've done it once a week now for 3 weeks and I def like it more than going for a run. For instance: 

 

Quote:

A)     Bike Tempo Circuit

1) Ride Stationary Bike for 20-40 seconds at 60-75% of maximum output (probably between 100-120rpm)

2) Do 10 Pushups

3) Walk for 10-30 seconds, active rest period will need to be adjusted based upon fitness levels.

4)  Ride Stationary Bike for 20-40 seconds at 60-75% of maximum output

5) Do 20-30 reps of bodyweight or lightly weighted abdominals

6) Walk for 10-30 seconds.

Repeat this cycle until you complete 6-10 rounds on the bike. Two to three series of this circuit is appropriate. The work intervals on the bike will need to be adjusted based upon fitness level. Remember, this is intended to be an aerobic-alactic drill, so your effort, work intervals and rest periods will need to be adjusted to reflect that for you and your athlete’s abilities.

You can swap the strength movements as you see fit. I added in face pulls / band pull aparts as a third movement in the circuit to balance out the pull-push ratio. You could also do chins/pull ups. Pistol squats is another option for legs. You get the idea.

Thanks and I'll definitely try it.

I just failed so miserably at running that I'm going to ride this hubris wave until I can run 5km.

milosh i'm doing couch to 5k and it's working out great. i downloaded the app so i don't have to remember any of it. i highly recommend it.

bunny/tk--"loose" is the wrong word. it's like the outside of my knee just feels unstable but it's not painful? I think it's a tight IT band or i'm not engaging my glutes enough when i squat.

It is the same leg as the hip groin injury was?
