So Charly gonna be doing front squats as I introduce low bar wide stance powerlifting back squats into my routine. Is this real life? My goal being to strengthen the hips, hammies, and glutes to accomodate a wider landing stance during the snatch and clean. They're pretty awful (most likely because I still suck at them) but I'm already feeling more stable and confident in the receive positions.
Just goes to show anyone saying something is for powerlifting or for bodybuilding or for weight lifting.... that's bullshit, it's just an exercise. You'd be an idiot to ignore exercises that can help you achieve your goals simply because they have a stigma as belonging to PL, BB, or WL. "Bro-ing out" on some curls or rows isn't beneath me if I feel like they'll help me put some kilos on my snatch or clean.
Also, NYC RHET brahs, any recommendations on where I cop a top notch bagel w/ cream cheese and lox?
