Deads looking decent aside from that your butt rises too fast. Either start with hips higher or focus on more leg drive and activate the glutes to not let it get thrown up at the start. Squats looked better, btw.

I've tried it but decided to stop doing it because I lack the required sideways ankle mobility. I can keep the feet straight ahead even with a wide stance but it almost causes my feet to roll over on the outside. From my understanding, the hip impingement is the whole idea of it. By keeping the feet straight and creating that torque you're basically mimicking how a squat suit works. That's what I've read at least.

A bit outside shoulders

Looks like I'll be working out in NYC once a month now for a bit since training will fall on Saturdays too.

This makes me sad man... Probably the #1 reason why I won't go to a big box gym (or any gym) that get's pissy over stuff like this.

As far as DL form... I'm no expert, but it does look like your butt comes up quick and maybe not using a lot of leg drive.

How does one increase leg drive? I was reading a mhedi article where he said keep your head in line with your spine. Or should I just let my hips start higher in general?

It's actually nbd, and more my fault than anything. They have floor mats for that kinda stuff that I just wasn't using. Also, that's not a big box gym, it's a dingy basement gym.

Hey Guys, My friends and I are having a dunk contest over the duration of Novemeber via Instagram to raise awareness for Breast Cancer. We all picked one person to represent, I chose my grandmother, another chose his mother, and the last contestant chose a family friend. If you are interested please get on Instagram and like our videos, every vote counts.

What kind of video are you hoping to see? Squats? Snatches? Cleans? Jerks?

I posted motion pictures from my very first competition in summer 2012. But no one I know has film of my two meets since then, and I have never taken video of training sessions.

If you start with your ass too low on deadlift will it cause your lower back to be prioritized? I wonder if that's what I'm doing because now that I think of it I had my ass super low last time I tried deadlifting, couldn't get it off the ground even and my lower back was really feelin it.

Guess this answers it:

I like seeing snatches and cleans, makes me super jelly of their form/mobility. Squats are fine too nod[1].gif

Wouldn't videos of your lifts be beneficial for you? Or you have a good coach that fix your form issues?

you know, this would almost make sense if you said "resistance" instead of "torque".

but anyway, what you gain in natural stiffness, you lose in terms of maximum muscular force because your joints are not optimally aligned.

A means that you only need statement 1 to solve the problem
B means you only need statement 2 to solve the problem
C means you need both to solve the problem, and can't do it with either individually
D means you can solve using either statement individually
E means you can't solve the problem, even with both statements together

Here try a PS problem instead. Just solve it in 2 minutes.

No but MBA's are huge over here, which is why I recommend it if you're planning on living here in the next couple of years.


Yeah, no idea how to do that quickly, I could do it but it would take a long time. I could probably do well on that kind of maths when I was younger if I practiced for it, but not now. I'll probably stay in the UK for a while,but I'd really only do an MBA if my employer paid for one. Can you even do an MBA right out of uni? I thought you needed to work for a while. Got an offer to work for a hedgefund today, not my first choice for what I want to do, but it's nice to know if I don't get into IB right away I have something to do.

Hedge fund >>>> IB

Yeah it's all high school math, the tough part is figuring out how to solve the problem using it.

Usually you do an MBA after a couple years in the workforce.

Dude if I got a hedge fund offer I'd shit my pants all over this chair. Wanna go into C-level management, start my own co. or go into the PE/VC space ultimately, though.

Banking would be cool at the VP level or higher
