    @ maplefuturist: I'd echo much of what is said here. Goblet squats --> front squats --> back squats will help you get your core strong enough to back squat without hyperextending. Obviously hard to tell too much from a series of still photos, but I will say your bottom position has a few things going on worth addressing.

    1. Looks like you are hitting the bare minimum as far as depth goes. You should be looking to get your hip crease below your knees at the bottom. This may be a mobility issue, in which case you should be working like crazy on mobilizing your hips/hamstrings.

    2. Given that you've got no weight on your back, your torso angle at the bottom looks a bit extreme to me. This may be part of what leads to you feeling like your torso comes up too fast on the way up. I think that a better bottom position for you would be hips lower and torso more vertical.

    Yep, yours. You want some thick ass erectors and have some carry over to your sumo? Pull conventional.

    Gonna try a different rep scheme on squartz today. Just don't have the mental power to get under the bar and do 20 reps today. Will do 15,12,10,8,6 increasing the weight each set. Something like 100,105,110,115,120kg probably. Might even try not locking the reps out to keep constant tension.

    just saw a dude properly teach his buddy to bench, is this real life? had him hard pause on the chest, elbows under the bar, shoulder blades retracted. not disappoint

    this was offset by what could be loosely described as a clean and jerk from a guy repping his ULTIMATE FIGHTER getup. also saw the short-man syndrome curlbro who was staring everyone down while doing the swole-walk the other day is actually a trainer there too.

    Speaking of bench pressing...

    My friend just hit a raw bench of 400 @ 165 raw this past weekend.

    Tied for #1 at 165 for raw bench press in the U.S. and world right now.
