LOL. That thread smells of a troll.
Is the trolling bit you saying you're a powerlifter and care so much about being fit when you only squat 185lb?
Shooting to crack the top 50 in the U.S. for raw 198's in May.
Hopefully the top 30 or 25 by the end of this year.
So fucking amped.
#Fail at reading much.
my flexibility for front squat rack position is somehow getting worse - same position, but 2 fingers under the bar instead of 3. as i've been adding in more pullups and pulldowns its gotten worse, so i did this stretch and it was the most horrendously intense and excellent doms moment of life.
re: front squats, i love the shit out of them. while i will rightfully acknowledge my back squat is limited by mobility that i need to get cracking on, front squats feel so much more shoulder-friendly, comfortable and natural. don't really care if it means a lower working max than a back squat. am enjoying the ab/traps sore feel.
that stretch was given to me by my coach, only less homo as he told me to use two barbells instead of a bearmode dude.
shh, lack of mobility is my excuse. for reals though all i did was put my elbows on the bar and press down instead of having someone stare into my eyes. any other tips for front squatting scandinavibro?? ps how long have you been oly lifting for now? i remember your bench days
COLDSNAP, you know how you get mad about "real pullups?" do some band lat pulldowns, the tension gets nasty right at the bottom of the movement which would be the lockout of a pullup. a few weeks of doing these and i am able to get my chest up much higher than before.
I'll give that a try.
I'm so sore right now, it's taking me like 20 mins to talk myself into stretching and soft tissue work.
maybe a year now weightlifting where my mobility has been at the level I'm able to do things correctly. obviously my technique needs improvement but it's coming along.
for fs idk if i can tell you anything other that hasnt already been mentioned. a good rack position is imperative, as is keeping the torso vertical or as close to it as possible. basically try to sit between your heels and shove the knees out hard. chest up and elbows up all the way, if your upper back starts to round the torque you need to overcome increases very rapidly to the point where you'll end up dumping the bar.
lol at me benching glad those days are gone
That feel when you're on vacay and you've gained a couple pounds from eating like shit plus you no longer have creatine on board so you feel weaker and you're dehydrated all the time so you look and feel fat, soft, and weak.
God I can't wait to get back home.
that is pretty impressive.
1) Come Feb, its offseason, so I pretty much can train how however i like.
Mon - Bench + Assistance
Tue - High Bar + Clean + Assistance
Thu - Same as Mon
Fri - HB + DL + Assistance
Mon - HB > Hams > Bench
Wed - FS > Push/Jerk > DL
Fri - HB > Hams > Bench
I prefer the 2nd, but my anterior chain may get wrecked. Also dunno how to fit in classical lifts , which is essential. Main aim is to get more powerful, hopefully can legit dunk on 10ft rim @ 1.79m.
2) Anyone knows how to stretch / treat tight VMO ?
3) Why the fark do people come up to me for training advice on how to look "athletic" , then when I advise squatting heavy / often + sprints, say " no i don't want my legs to grow more"....lolzzzzzzz enjoy your chopsticks legs.
My routine is similar to this.
Mon - Bench
Tues - Deadlift
Thur - Bench Top-end
Fri - Squat
What are your lifts at now? I think I remember you snatching 80kg months ago so I'm guessing 2 plates by now?
managed 87.5 as of late so no
had a weird ab problem that probably cost me a month to fully recover from, dropped a 95 jerk back to rack and something went shitty whole lower right side of my abs were sore as fuck all the time and I couldn't really brace them like i needed to
GP gave a much appreciated answer that i probably strained something (i guess doctor lingo for i really do not know what the fuck it is).
better now though
e. cliffs lrn2complex or have jerk blocks
