Perhaps they were doing rippetoe squat
I did - I told them straight up that what he was teaching them would hurt them. I even got under their bar and demonstrated. It just seemed in one ear and out the other.
The butt thing was awkward because they threw their shoulders forward, moving the bar out of it's "straight up and down" line where it should be going, like turning it into a really heavy, crouched good-morning.
I guess the stance thing I could be wrong about. But they were cocking their feet out, not moving over their knees, etc. Just looked horribly out of shape.
Are you defending those kids or making fun of them with that statement? I genuinely do not know.
Just following what you were saying, OP, were they kind doing this? [VIDEO][/VIDEO] FWIW, this is the motions i go through with my squat but with a narrower stance. I cannot do wide.
Okay, those are good points. But definitely not the butt thing
Yeah I was just curious because some guys think Rippetoe is a god and some think he's dumb as fuck. I'm somewhere in the middle. He's got some good things to say. But also a bunch of bullshit that I wouldn't repeat to my worst enemies.
Similar, but their feet were wider still, their knees weren't directed over their feet as they moved up and down, and as I mentioned to mrchariybrown the bar didn't follow a single line.
I like Rippetoe's point there about getting everything to your butt and the small of your back, though.
Was this one of the kids?
squat day today. not sure if i stick my butt out too much when coming up, fuck
my bro said my bar is not moving forward or backward from the side view, going straight up and down.
fuck damnit i need to tape this shit
anyways, as mentioned, following rippetoe squatting positions ^^
Just did a very short technique/mobility session in the morning.. I'm still at a loss as to whether or not I should front squat or not, although my coach said to drop 'em for this wk.
Then again the guy has three decades of experience in OL, whereas I have barely three months - no squats it is.
Why you hating westside squats? In a low bar squat the bar isn't really gonna be moving straight up and down because you push your ass out first and get forward bend. Wide as fuck stance is to shorten the ROM. Never really seen anyone squat like that raw though, usually fat white men in multi ply. Not really a fan of riptoe either, SS doesn't work the upper back enough in my opinion. Bench and overhead press twice a week, but no verticle or horizontal pulling? Its a beginners program and a beginners power clean is gonna be a reverse curl, not gonna work the lats the same way 20 sets of pushing will a week. Not really drinking the squats for upper back development cool aid either.
wtf is verticle pulling?
e. wtf is that poast
chin ups/pull ups?
If you want to get to LSE you better get in the habit of not building those straw men. I really don't get why you pick on SS.. sure, it's not a good program for intermediate lifters, but I guess it works for ppl who've never been to a weight room before.
Squats for upper back development? I doubt anyone ITT seriously recommended that.
From what I understand vertical just means up and down.
Separate names with a comma.
