@Coldsnap good job keeping a big chest and open despite good morning-ing the weight
post #42272 of 57260
Thank you, as my quads get stronger I am able to stay more vertical. It's weird though if I keep my chest big and pointing forward at the bottom during a lowbar squat I loose it behind me because my torso is freakishly short.

Um. Maybe it's just me, but that form looks awful.

Post better? There's really no form to it, it's a lowbar squat and you roll with your proportions that you have. And FYIW I can highbar 275lbs, I actually do more highbar than lowbar work at this point.

Looks similar like this dudes, knees even come in. He does bury it though.

Nah, his form don't look awful. A few things that needs fixing. But far from "awful."

Thanks! So far in my form I've fixed head looking forward and elbows pointing down, when I use to go over 250lbs I'd immediately go back to my elbows way behind my back and face completely down looking at the floor. I gotta get stronger though. But hey I squatted 308 for a brutal single at my meet in Nov weighing 198lbs or so, hit 300 x 3 at 175lbs a few months later; I think that's decent for someone who sucks at lifting!

What would you say I need to change? Stronger quads, stronger upper back tightness?

I'd just work on core strength and beefing up that back, and also try to push your knees out slightly more on the descent so that your hips are closer to your center of gravity, so that you can have a more vertical back.

Those are some really nice improvements. Dropped like 25 pounds, and hitting near your 1rm for a triple only 5 months later. I wish I had that kind of improvement.

The main thing that looked bad was his hips firing an him falling forward, forcing to almost good morning the weight up. Otherwise, fairly good -- always room for nitpicks.

Do you do any weight resistance movements with chains or bands? Don't recall you mentioning them but I imagine you have to do some speed work during the week, no?

Gotcha thanks, back and core is the plan! Yea, I'm very happy with how this cut went; I've added lbs to my lifts across the board. I know next time I won't be as lucky heh, as I get closer and closer to my genetic potential.

I don't really do any of the main three with chains or bands. Once in a while I'll throw bands on the bench but I haven't used bands on the squat and deadlift for a while. The only movement I do with bands consistently is db goodmornings.

About 20 weeks out from a meet to about 6 weeks out, I'll do speed work for all three lifts. With about 50-60% of my 1RM.

You can never work your core too much!

Mad stupid question, but do you get to pick the song you do your lifts to at a meet?

LOL no (At least not in USAPL, but I'm realizing their sorta a stick in the mud). You should do a meet though. I can't be the only dude in here other than charly who has done a meet!

An equally stupid question; in bodybuilding do you get to pick the music you pose to? That would be awesome
