 It might be more helpful to just chill in a third world squat for like 10 min a day, since your problem could be due to any of a dozen things and that will help with a lot of them, including ankle mobility.

The beginning of that ankle mobility video was basically a third world squat with the band holding you up so you don't fall on your ass.

Well, of course my statement was a hyperbole to some degree, But olympic squat isn't just squatting high-bar, it's also going deep, keeping your chest up a lot more than powerlifters do, narrower stance and some other details I'm probably forgetting. Of course olympic lifters have injuries as well, serious athletes in any sport will have injuries, but I'd still say it's more beneficial for the average lifter to do an olympic squat than a powerlifting one due to some of the reasons mentioned. When I watch weightlifters squat it's also just such a controlled motion compared to powerlifters. With all that said I just wish I could squat like Tom Platz.

 

The fact that olympic squats look more controlled by weightlifters than how powerlifters squat is probably not attributable to that it is a high bar squat.

It could also be that their better form comes from how they train their squats in comparison to powerlifters. 

 

- Weightlifters use the squatting motion in almost all their lifts. Powerlifters use it far less, where for some the competition squat is the only squatting motion they do.

 

- Just about all weightlifters train on a high frequency program where they do some form of squat every time they train, and weightlifters train a lot more and more often than powerlifters. Powerlifters often have one squat session per week of lower volume = less training of technique. Almost no matter what level you're looking at, weightlifters will do more squats.

 

- This is pure speculation, but the videos I often see of powerlifting squats are max attempts. Weightlifters use back squats as an accessory. Max attempts always look sketchier than relatively light lifts.

squatting is used to build leg strength in weightlifting, but in the end all that matters is the carryover to the classical lifts. you can squat the world but if you can't put it overhead it doesn't matter.

depending on the type of programming, squatting to max may be done or not, more often than not squats are programmed quite heavy and building volume through sets, keeping repetitions quite low.

The difference between high bar and low bar is quite exaggerated. It's the same movement, just that the weight is further back so you have better leverage, and you don't have to go as far down to reach depth. I still break first at the knees when doing low bar, and I still try to stay as upright as possible

If you're training for strength just put the weight wherever it feels comfortable, break at the knees, stay as upright as you can, go as deep as you can, and don't worry about what style you're doing.

What do you guys use to store your bulk meals in? Shopping around for containers on amazon, glass, plastic, what size? It's also really annoying that I want 7 of the same size containers, but all these sets come with different sized ones.

I've tried changing to more narrow stance and it made my knees hurt. I tried putting my toes forward for TORQUE because Kelly Starret told me to, I got hip impingement pain. I tried squatting wider and lower and it made my hips hurt. I've finally found a back squat stance that I can apparently do with minimal maintenance to keep my fascia un-knotted and hips unimpinged, though it still takes work.

Squat however the FUCK

you wanna squat

That mobility horseshit probably works for one out of ten males.
post #50187 of 57266
Yea because 1/10 probably actually stick to it. You can just do mobility once a week and think you're going to make a change.
post #50188 of 57266

When it comes to mobility you have to pick your battles. If you really suck at it then you're going to have to put certain other things on the backburner while you focus on the issue. Like 'snap said you can't just "try it" and expect to see a difference instantly.

I only have so much time... I just dedicate it to building muscle, and now doing a little cardio

Heating pad has helped the back a lot, haven't been waking up with back aches.

New York brahs, what neighborhoods are available if I'm looking for a more suburban feel but are still a decent commute to NYU and not expensive? Brooklyn looks like it might have neighborhoods like this. Guessing the Jersey side does, too.

What about something like Ditmas Park?

Also wtf is up with Craigslist? How is this so cheap? Bad neighborhood or something? What about this?
