You get the point
Knees wide helps. Do you have trouble getting your knees to go out (rather than forward) in squats?
eason why dont you pull sumo? ive heard you rip on it before, but if you're having a hard time getting your hips low you can drop as low as you like in sumo with no problems
The issue here is that you are recovering incompletely between those work outs, right? You know how to recover. Either eat more or sleep more. Or change the program to allow more recovery. Or try to power through it, by overreaching, to increase your recovery ability. Are there other options?
That's because you're bending over too much with your back. Proper bar positioning causes your back to round because of it.
This feels better because you're using so much of your back. According to your scientific diagram it also causes you to go up on your toes and put a ton of extra stress on your knees.
You should never have your ass as high as you do in the left photo and be bent over so far. You should also be transferring the weight through your heels and not your toes.
Think about it this way. The way you deadlift, the moment created by the weight is being placed on your lower back as the lever. For every inch you are moving the bar away from your lower back, you are adding an additional 100% in-lbs to the moment. For example, look at the difference deadlifting 200 lbs would make by just moving the bar two inches further out:
200x10 = 2000 in-lbs
200x12 = 2400 in-lbs
By moving it out two inches, you'd increase the torque on your lower back by 400 in-lbs. That's significant. And this doesn't even take into account the increasing localization of force due to moving it out (i.e. the further you move the bar out, the more you use the lower back and the less you use other muscles). So the force placed on the lower back is even greater.
Now, the proper way to deadlift has the lever being the ass, as the motion with proper form is primarily a driving forward of the hips. The reason people keep the bar as close to their shins as possible, often to the point of scraping, is to prevent overutilizing your lower back on the lift as that is exactly how you get injured doing it. It's also to keep the weight as close to the site of transferral (the heels) as possible to achieve proper weight transfer and minimise torsion (the moment created off the heel as the lever arm).
Recommend me what supermarket foods to snack in between meals? Hi protein, low gi carbs please.
maybe try non-fat cottage cheese, beef jerky, hard boiled eggs (if they sell them boiled)
If you get Jerky it is mandatory to go the low sodium route. regular Jerky has an obscene amount of salt.
some kid cleaning 50 asked me for advice today as I was on my mid-session 10 min break. 5 mins later dude cleans 65 easy, told me that was a 7.5 kg PR. being nice to people is actually kind of cool you know
Cool thanks guys.
crap cottage cheese and greek yoghurt is damn expensive in singapore. 5 sgd for 100ml tub. GTFO.
Obligatory progress pic for those interested:
Up to 187 from 164. 6-pack is only really visible when flexed...guessing I'm sitting around 10-11% bf now.
Thank you for not posing in your underwear.
I can PM those to you if you want.
