    I guess you mean the first video?

    His name is Alexander Eriksson. European champion in one of the lighter weight classes for sub-juniors for equipped lifting in IPF. He has a channel on youtube.

    Most equipped lifters (single ply) in Norway seem to use a squatting style just like that: high bar and wider stance, spreading the hips and sitting back, but still staying upright.

    Many use it for raw squatting too and I'm about to change my style to it. Supposed to be good for guys with longer legs.

    You should look at Alexanders videos and search Stian Walgermo too.

    About that high bar style and your heels rising, you prob need to work on ankle dorsiflexion. You need the confidence to sit back and not leaning forward. Initially, that style is going to be weaker than low bar, but that'll change with some muscle mass in the right places.

    If you're up for something different you should consider the Eastern European countries by the sea, like Croatia. Very cheap and beautiful, not as touristy as Italy but you can travel there too since its right over the border. Its also fairly close to Israel on your way back.

    It could maybe be sketchy if you go way out on the poor countryside but stay in the bigger cities or the more well known tourist places and it'll be no problem. Search Split, well known Croatian party island.

    Going to Croatia this September to get messy on an island at some festival. Nothing better then explaining forward rates to fucked up girls.


    My dog lost his virginity, so happy for him.

    I can't seem to get my upper body sore like I can with lower. Like after leg day I'm sore for 3-4 days, while after all my upper body days I just have some minor tightness. Like I did a shit ton of pulls yesterday and my lats are not even sore. Maybe it will just come with time.

    Suns out guns out.

    I should note that I have never done birthright and refuse to do so for political reasons, but you can't deny that israeli chicks are bangin' and everyone on birthright usually gets laid.

    Oh..and recos on Europe for $1000 U.S???

    I'm not sure about that budget..but I go to Barcelona every summer..for 2 weeks..which costs a lot more..but you could def go there for a few days for $1000..greatest city on earth IMO

    I've never stayed in hostels..but I do plan on backpacking thru Europe or maybe just throughout Spain..and will stay at hostel only..hotels are too expensive..ridiculous actually
