post #38026 of 57260
Some info for bodybuilding bros.... study shows front squats = back squats for stimulation but don't have as much danger. You can get the same leg stimulation with less weight, I'm guessing because your back just stabilizes rather than actually lifts the weight. I'm assuming they mean high bar. I enjoy back squats and will def keep doing them for heavy leg work but I will start doing front squats for my hyper leg work.

I dont have the geometry for a clean grip so I will use straps...

Just an FYI I guess.

I usually do I kept looking at the phone recording, next time I'll use the back camera to avoid temptation

Please critique deadlift form. Weighing a hair under 180 here. Pulled 365x3, 385x3, 405x5, 425x1,435x1 then 455x1 followed by conventional deficit deads up to 385x3.

It's fine but if you want to pull more efficiently (stronger), externally rotate your hips out more. Might take a while to get used to and a bit weaker for that period, but in the long run, it'll pay off.

Yeah I've been trying to do that. I kind of feel like im pulling conventional with a wide stance right now.

Haha that's exactly what you're doing and it's a good way to describe it. For most people that would spell disaster but luckily for you and your limb/torso length, it's not too bad.

You always pull sumo?

Not always, been doing a lot of conventional work lately, but it is still my stronger pull.

^ Congrats! I'm repping 285 4-5x right now (and feeling good), but as soon as I move up to 295 the weights feels SO much heavier. I'm hoping to hit 3 plates (repping, not 1x) by the end of January.

Back into the gym after two weeks off (or at least not optimal training).

Felt a bit rusty so weights are a bit lower than my maxes. Figured I'd take some videos for form checks. 

 

 

Side view to judge depth, bar path and back angles

 

Front view to see how the knee's track. (and fuck, do I look skinny...)

 

Heavy single at 242 to see how my form looks near my max

You're knees come in during ascent, I do that too. I'm not sure if it's a problem, guess who you ask. I've recently developed it too as I got over 300lbs and started to strengthen my quads.
post #38039 of 57260
I think knees coming in are fine as long as they're not actually pointing inwards towards each other. I mean, my knees just naturally come in a bit to get more power out of the hole.

Don't know if you've read it, but Dan Green wrote an article about knees coming in a bit in a wide stance squat actually being beneficial for speed and outer quad growth or something like that. I think its up on JTS.
