1. And... we're back. You'll notice that all of your images are back as well, as are our beloved emoticons, including the infamous :foo: We have also worked with our server folks and developers to fix the issues that were slowing down the site.

    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    Your squat is going to jump 100 pounds when you get your form down.

    I honestly don't think it's anything as serious as that. Just shit mobility that I need to work on. I just need to open my hips up, and get the movement down. I can comfortably do deep lunges.

    And for what it's worth the pain is mainly localized right where my leg creases at the hip at the top, a little to the right, somewhere here. [​IMG]

    From your form check video I think you are squatting too narrow and not getting your torso in between your hips properly.

    Ian that's the same thing this guy at the gym told me today, he said I should sit back more and try to plant myself in the middle of my knees. He gave me the cue of digging into the ground with my big toe, and initiating the movement as if i'm falling back.

    Not a hard habit to break. You will be squatting big numbers soon.

    KJ: some guys teaching elbows down are Chad Smith, Brandon Lilly, Sam Byrd and pretty much every other succesful raw powerlifter that actually squats very heavy weights (unliky Rip).

    To be fair all those dudes have hauss backs. Elbows up is pretty effective for beginners who don't have a shelf.

    Just had a massage from a masseuse for the first time. Super strong no homo but I miss my old Buddhist guy's old man strength. Poor woman wasnt strong enough to punish my trigger points. :(

    I wish you well, of course I also hope that it isn't as serious as that. If you work towards having enough internal and external rotation without twisting (side-side or up-down) to compensate at the knee or hip, squatting should not be as big an issue. One of those common denominators in flexibility. Of course many factors impact IR/ER. Best of luck. If you plan on sitting back to squat, you might want to consider moving the bar a little lower to help reduce the increased hip torque.

    ^^^ please... stay safe.


    I was able to get up 325lbs on the bench a few weeks but did a deload. Felt good brahs. But sadly no deads in a month and squat is shit due to long legs.
