Did you see my list of limitations as assessed by the PT?
here now. Really good gym, just full of retards. Shame its getting the free weights section closed.
So I've bulked up to 190 over the past few months.
I expected my maxes to shoot up on everything...hasn't really happened. There's been gains, but they've all been with increased repetitions rather than increased max. For example, yesterday I deadlifted 415(my max at 165 pounds was 405), so I've gone up a total of 10 pounds with a 25 pound weight gain. However, I was able to pull 315 x 10 when my old best was x 6. I'm hoping it's a result of just bulking quickly and that I'll increase my maxes soon, too.
yo dudes, here's a vid of me in january 2011. I don't have anything current but I'm curious how ya'll evaluate my form. I'll try to post something in about a month when i'm back at school.
From self-diagnosis I've adjusted my footing to be closer (i was having some patellar tendonitis), my elbows are closer to my body and pointed more down to elevate my chest some more, and I'm reaching greater depth.
top end strength has a lot to do with the CNS, so while more calories will definitely help with recovery and all that I think it may be a programming issue.
There's probably some truth to that. When I loaded up 425 on the bar I even had this sort of "oh fuck" feeling to me. Maybe now's the time to start doing towel bench and box squats.
Also, any other suggestions for improving deadlift? I can pull it off the floor quite easily...it's the lockout I have issues with. I've been hitting Good Mornings hard and heavy but am always looking for additional help.
If you have issues with lockout, then do movements that improve hip "pop" and lockout speed/strength.
Dimel deadlifts, dimel deadlifts against bands, deadlifts against chains, deadlift swings, etc
Thoughts? Looks...well..not awful but not great.
You are barely hitting parallel in shoes with a heel. Try setting your feet under your hips, squat down between your ankles.
Don't do the forward lean. Try a higher bar setup.
Does anybody else calculate kg to lb when Fuji tells his stories
If I don't I generally have little idea what he's talking about
no but I reside in SI standard country

here's something for you britons if you have an hour to waste looking at british weightlifters
the lightest of the bunch has weird proportions for an OLer, very long legs even though short in stature.
Awesome for anyone
