1500 is pretty extreme for someone who weighs 200lb... esp with no carbs
People think a deficit will only go after fat... but your muscles store fuel thats much easier to burn (glycogen). Yea you burn fat for that but thats not enough
The best thing I've ever done is follow science in my diet and training. The sooner y'all realize this, the sooner you'll make "true" progress.
Science like anything can be a tool or a detriment. Some people take it too far. When in doubt, KISS
If Hodgetwins can get big and ripped naturally there's def not much to it
being black helps
Best thing I ever did was calculate my TDEE and start meal tracking to get my macros in. I am getting fucking shredded for Thailand and will bulk until spring on my return.
Another deadlift form check. Weight is low so nothing impressive. I managed to add 10 lbs from last week pretty easy so felt good nonetheless.
I have fully adopted the Charly style setup, although without looking like a boss and pulling a lot of weight
your shoulders are a tiny bit in front of the bar when you set up so sit back a little bit more but it looks pretty good i think
I actually read that shoulders in front of the bar isn't bad and that some of the strongest powerlifters pull that way. No idea if it actually is good or bad though, aside from that the pull was a lot easier and felt better than when I would sit far back and start with the hips lower. Was a lot easier to maintain a stable core.
edit: just re-watched my lift and compared to some respectable guy's and I should probably lower my hips a bit as you say.
GN you're probs far more aesthetic now than when you met that bitch. Now you can get a much hotter one or do what most folks do and go out slaying hoodrats for the next few months.
i found the same thing. initially, with shoulders in front of the bar it was much easier, although i plateaued hard with that technique. sitting back more, lowering my hips and bringing my shoulders on top of the bar was much, much more difficult at first - although once i put time into that, i smashed my old plateau easily. this is because of two things: 1, you have more leverage against the bar this way. 2, your posterior chain is going to be more engaged this way, but right now it is probably comparatively weaker due to your current technique not utilizing it as much. something to remember is that the setup of a deadlift should be uncomfortable as all hell to hold; you should be leaning back and pulling all slack out of the bar, and then simply driving downwards through your heels. if you let go of the bar, you will go flying backwards. if you hang onto the bar, it will rise.
with all of that being said, your shoulders are really not all that far in front of the bar so this post is probably pretty overblown.
ultimately you have to have confidence in what works for you - there are a bunch of factors that will influence your setup. http://www.ironaddicts.com/forums/showthread.php?t=29388
Some light work off a 1", so, probably a bit different than if I were pulling off the floor in flat shoes
Saw a guy box squat 320kg today. Best lifts were 250kg bench, 350kg squat, 300kg deadlift, never competed. Lifted at a different gym in Cambridge, full of swole as fuk brahs openly discussing there gear use. Hit 100kg for another easy set of 20 on the box squat then 4 more sets of 10 then 100kg for 15 on the rdl for a set then 2 sets of 15 with 110kg. Making all kinds of gains. Legs up about .75" since I started hypertrophy training.
Change your starting position or keep your hips down and drive with your legs. Hips are flying up before the bar starts to move. Unless you're doing that on purpose for some reason.
