But the slight hitch when I go up is ok? Does it just mean I have to start higher?

Also somebody told me paused squats are more for people who lift geared. Same with paused bench?

I just drop the bar from the top. Almost all powerlifters I have trained with do so when they lift heavy on the competition style deadlift. But its ultimatedly personal preference. For accessory variations of the deadlift done for higher reps (say SLDL) you obviously control the negative.

I could not see any hitch.

How are pause squats related to this?

Anyway, pause squats is not the best accessory for geared lifters. The suit and knee wraps help most in the bottom of the lift. Hence, if you lift with gear you need to be stronger at the top of the ROM. That is why lifters who compete with gear use chains and bands (overload the lockout) and boards for bench press.

Raw lifters benefit more from pause squats, pause bench and pause deadlifts since they typically miss around the bottom portion of the lift.

Unless you're training for powerlifting competitions and at powerlifting gym, there's no reason to drop it from the top. Most conventional gyms don't even like it because it can damage the floors and annoys other patrons

Sure, I forgot about that policy aspect.

Disagree. The negative is dangerous in the deadlift. It's hard to control the movement going down without rounding the back at higher weights, and the timing of the knee involvement is difficult.

Unless I'm told not to, I always drop the weight at the top.

DROP THAT SHIT.

 

Lol controlled eccentrics. You try to control 2.5x-3x+ your bodyweight on the eccentric and I'll refer you to my old practice for PT once they finish all the MRIs.

 

 

@indesertum impossible to tell if you're breathing and bracing properly from that angle. Your right hip reaches full extension very noticeably before your left hip on the last rep. Also doesn't really look like you're finishing with slight posterior pelvic tilt on any rep but that could be more an issue of the video angle. 

 

 

And shout out to the dude doing ez curl bar front raises

Am I supposed to finish with slight posterior pelvic til?
post #56482 of 57256

Yes, if your glutes are maximally contracted, your pelvis will be posteriorly tilted

But doesn't this mean that the low back will round at lockout?

Why is maxmum contraction good if you are able to finish the lift and take a neutral position?

This has been so incredibly helpful. Much appreciated.

No, your back won't round nor will your spinal position be compromised. It's a very slight posterior tilt. Go flex your glutes and while looking in the mirror

Ok.

 

My coach told me to stop doing it during deads and squats and the physio I am currently seeing due to low back and knee problems doesn't like it either. They both teach keeping the normal slight curvature/arch in the low back at all points through the lift.

you can hyperextend your hip joint around 15% without losing neutral spine posture.
post #56488 of 57256
15% or 15 degrees? If the former, then percent of what?

I had the flu but am mostly over it now. That said I think I have some kind of infection because I'm coughing up brown stuff. I thought of going to the doctor but I can't imagine they would do anything other than give me anti-biotics.

I got that around the start of the year and it totally fucked me! Lost ridiculous weight due to loss of appetite and spent a month coughing up my lungs. Major losses were experienced.
Hope you have better luck!
