Not a hater. I just think that high-bar is a lot less technically demanding for new lifters.
probably because you can't do as much ROM going lowbar
really? i would imagine high bar to be more technically demanding. maybe i'm just used to low bar
Been spreading around the net quite a bit the last couple days... Rippletits interviews Ed Coan. Hard to believe Ed is really that humble...
I didn't go through that video but why is it hard to believe Ed Coan is really humble? From all the stories I've heard/read, he really is that humble and a great ambassador of the sport.
2400+ total. he does seem like a genuinely nice guy
Ed Coan is what many would consider the greatest powerlifter of all time and definitely a great guy. I've had the pleasure of meeting him and he truly is one of the nicest and most helpful guys you could ever hope to know.
he's very humble
h&m has some really cool shorts. Midnight blue cotton chinos shorts and some shiny grey linen ones. Bought both, on sale for about $15. Short inseem to show off aesthetic quads, but prob won't fit you if your squatting 500+ pounds or are one of those people who squat 225lb and there ass explodes.
yeah short inseam for thee of the master race
I wish I could oly lift any day of the week
I can do is 3 times a week no problem (mws or something of the sort) but my girlfriend and i lift in the PM, and she realistically should lift 3 or 4 times a week as well, which means i have a few 2 a days
Figured I'd post in here - a heads up for fellow lifters and large-thigh enthusiasts. Moving on a pair of Pure Blue Japan xx003s in my signature - check it out.
Thanks for the link. Yes, I understand how to put the bar in the correct position. However, my upper arms aren't flexible enough to remain in this position for more than one set, not without straining my muscles to the point where I can't press afterwards. My sedentary lifestyle for the last few years probably as something to do with it.
I think I'll continue to squat using the high-bar position. I haven't added weight yet as I was hoping to get the low-bar technique down before progressing. I certainly feel like I could squat more than the empty bar, my arms just suck.
i dunno, maybe my own personal situation means low-bar is easier for me. high bar is insanely uncomfortable for me and the rom point is moot since i can pretty much land my nuts on the floor ez with a low-bar stance. trying box squatting for the first time ever on thurs, gotta build a box that my ass won't break through. im interested to see how much more i can squat going from ~parallel as opposed to atg.
