Thanks for the help. Reason why I squat this way is because I've decided to dabble in olympic lifting. Hence my squat style.

Will be hammering abs/low back more often from now on.

Been doing these with a weighted barbell, and loving it.



Although KlokovD's variant seems cooler (I tried it, mother of god difficult to get the weight onto your traps!)

Why not just do Good Mornings? I feel those have helped my squat, second to box squats.

That seems like it requires more effort to set up than good mornings and doesn't incorporate the glute or hamstrings with the lower back like good mornings would?

Just some food for thought. If it gives you results, keep it up!

(I'm assuming you Dead Lift as well?)

The limiting factor in your squats appears to be glute/hammy weakness.  At that midpoint in your squat where bar speed slows, you should fire your hips and glutes to hit the lockout.  You are on the right path picking good mornings and/or GHRs as great accessories to focus on strengthening these weaknesses.

Me doing 325lbs for 5 reps. My depth wasn't the best, but it was a PR for me. My form usually isn't perfect when going for a PR. I've since lowered my working weight and worked on depth. I'm hoping to get to a 400lb raw squat soon.

Any constructive criticism is welcome.

Form looked fine to me dude. Depth was good and you didn't fold over.... not sure what could be improved.

I haven't taken a rest day in 3 weeks.

Hard to tell from the angle but squat depth looked a bit high.

son of a bitch

oppressive achiness in forearm? numbness in pinky side of hand? motherfucker. the serratus trigger point seems consistent with dumping a low-bar squat awkwardly at least. got out the knobbler and the cane and did some work on those points and i noticed a good amount of improvement. against better judgement, i went in and did a bro-day yesterday. some extremely minor fuzziness in the pinky, but nowhere near what i was getting before. great success. called up my old RMT and am going to pay out of pocket to have him crush those points now that im 90% sure of whats going on.

the trigger point therapy workbook is the fucking bible.

I want to start front squatting but I can't bend my elbows enough to rest the bar on my shoulders. Whats the deal
post #37991 of 57262
also here is what 6x/week squats and 3x/week bench did with no real meaningful pulling or rowing. i think this was across roughly 2 months or so with a week off in there because of flu:

It really is. I constantly come back to it and learn something new. It's also a great reminder that just because one area is hurting doesn't mean it's the injured area, gotta look upstream and downstream.

Nice delts too, I wish my shoulder girdle looked like that. Maybe as it fills out and my bench continues to go up it will.

The full ICF 5x5 days are pretty brutal. Had warmed myself up to it by doing less volume for the last weeks and yesterday I started the program as its written.

5x5 sets across bench, squats, pendlay row
3x8 shrugs, chins, skull crushers, good mornings, decline situps.
Also did 3 sets if high reps curls and face pulls

Took 2.5 hours with warmups and mobility work. If I won't get good gains from this on a bulk I have no idea what will

Thanks. I think a couple of them were good. But some of the reps would have been "red lighted"

Agreed. I may try using bands or chains to help bring me to the floor.
