overhead squats are hard.
Going to be competing in Raw Modern (raw with knee wraps) this May.
Wraps coming in this Wednesday so Friday will be my first ever squat session with knee wraps. I'm excited/scared.
Possible 500+ squat coming on May 19th!!!
Tweaked my back deadlifting on Saturday, it was the "1 set" on 5/3/1, so I pushed for more reps than ever at my 1RM (I know, it should be 90%).
This was the de-load week anyway, so hopefully a day or two of rest fixes it.
Pics?!?!?! Come on man!!!
I'm still waiting to find a girl who even knows what the hell olympic lifting is, let alone one who can do it.
FTFY. What sort of weight are you using for your OHS? One of the great US Olympic Track and Field coaches challenges his athletes to do OHS with bodyweight for 15 reps, claims it's probably the best movement for overall coordination, balance, and strength.
Good luck. I did something similar last June and it wasn't until early January that I was able to do a barbell squat without some discomfort. Hell, it wasn't until December that I stopped waking up every morning with my lower back in some degree of pain.
Well at least the best part of him didn't run down his mother's leg.
OH GOD I HOPE NOT.
I wish I could still do them. How to convince gym owner that platform + bumper plates means you can safely drop the barbell from overhead?
I know I've posted this before, but everyone should make this sauce and put it on disgusting dry high protein meat to make it edible. Mayonaise + chilli powder + shriracha. Don't know the measurements, just do it to taste. Makes the driest chicken breast delicious.
You're probably fine if your form is OK. I tweaked my back a time or two from deadlifting before really hurting it last June. After that, I was in at least mild discomfort nearly all the time and picking up anything heavy from the ground was almost entirely out of the question. I still haven't returned to deadlifting, but I've been pain free for nearly three months and been able to resume movements I know I wouldn't have been able to do a few months ago without incident.
Hi, I workout. I'm not nearly as strong as I'd like to be. Maybe I will post the video of my squats from tonight 5 x 195 @ 167lbs bodyweight.
Going from olympic lifting to powerlifting has been strange and few injuries have popped up.
I can't seem to do OHS without hurting my back, and my gym doesn't have wood barbells (the practice ones that weigh nothing) while I find the "right" spot for the bar. Any tips?
Form was solid until maybe the last two when I forced it.
Now this gives me an excuse to bro out on my all-arms workout. feelscurlman.jpg
Hit a 300lb squat tonight, I suspect I can hit double bodyweight before summer. snatched 90kg and cleaned 108kg but couldn't jerk it.
I was busy concealing my boner as I was in the front row
it was cool though as my coach is one of the coaches for the euro champs team so I got to talk with a lot of our best lifters.
where you'd say you have pain or discomfort? It's possible it's a flexibility issue, but if you're not using significant weights even that shouldn't give you trouble. finding the right slot for the bar can be hard but it'll come eventually. you want to maintain as upright a back as you can manage, thinking about pushing the knees out helps in not tilting forward.
You really should be able to do them with the barbell without any pain..
