    I'm getting PRs in the gym for the past few week, no menstrual cycle for me.

    But I'm also not cutting like a bitch and eating food :slayer:

    Did 275 lbs (3 sets of 5s) on bench this Wednesday. Will see how it goes tonight.

    I'm embarrassed because my work sets were like an inch high. Not opening my hips enough was causing me to have to lean fwd more, putting stress on my lower back and hips.

    Nice, yea charly gonna help you with dem wide squats. My knees use to cave like that, but I squated much closer stance. Greg Nuckols had me do a ton of highbar work and that eliminated it.

    @Eason, one final thing. Try bringing in your stance just an inch on both sides and then point your toes out slightly more. Not a lot.. just maybe 5 degree.

    how tall are you? I do the exact same thing as what you did on the last rep of work set, aka sorta cushioning the weight with hips instead of leaning back and going all the way down. I do it on the harder reps but try to make my knees go past toes on the first couple of reps so my ass sinks.

    180cm. Rising hips happens from a position of weakness because it's easiest to get the bar moving by straightening the legs. It should be avoided (so the squat looks more like my warm-up)


    edit: I see what you meant. Yes, that's because I'm not opening my hips enough to go down. I'm cutting back to 100kg for the next few weeks while I work on my hip mobility and staying strong in the hole. Then I'll work back up to 140kg as long as I can keep technique. I'll see how it goes.
