I posted one similar, but this is from when I ended my cut.
you're fucking huge
can you even touch your hand to your shoulder or elbow to elbow
Granted I'm not very experienced with doing snatches but how does this guy do it? I mean look at him....
Size isn't everything, especially with the snatch. I am curious how much he ways though...
I've had girls tell me it's more about girth than length anyway.
I don't know anyone with decent size on them that can touch elbow to elbow.
So, my deadlift form is terrible. I've pulled 415, but it's pretty ugly, and I have a very hard time keeping my back straight. As soon as it gets heavy at all, it's like I can't even figure out how to use my legs at all. Should I just do a lot of lower weight stuff, focusing on straight back and form, and slowly work up? My buddy is convinced it's a hamstring issue - should I be doing hamstring stuff? basically been lazy and not dling much, but bout to start 5/3/1, so gonna have to do it.
Also, plain nonfat greek yogurt + protein powder + propel zero powder = cake batter thick bowl of awesome.
yeah aren't those like the smallest fullsize bumpers you can even slap on the bar
also judging comps/ being the plate change dude is fucking boring.
pull the bar up, squat under it, job done..
I sure hope the guys from CS or broz' lifters can put US back as a serious OL competitor, it'd be great to see someone else than russkies and chinamen for a change.
e. north is a -94 class lifter, prolly trains at 3-6 kgs above that
I feel like there's an echo in here but... video clipppp.
Nothing wrong with rounding your back during the deadlift if it puts you in a better leverage position and if it doesn't hurt you.
Fix your back position at a lower weight and work back up. Mechanics, then consistency, and then intensity. If you let intensity come before consistently sound mechanics, you'll either stall out or hurt yourself or both. A little bit of rounding is inevitable as you approach your PR, but too much is a very bad thing. Significant rounding tends to come from some combination of sources, including mobility and strength. The first thing to check is your pulling position. If, as your friend suggests, the issue stems from having tight hamstrings (or hips, which are just as likely a culprit), you'll have a hard time even getting the pulling position without rounding your back. If you can get into a good pulling position, and can deadlift lighter weights with a straight back, then chances are yours is less of a mobility issue and more of a core strength issue. If that's the case, understand that you just aren't strong enough to be deadlifting 400lbs yet, and that continuing to pull that sort of weight with a rounded back won't actually get the right muscles stronger. Instead, figure out the heaviest load you can lift with near-perfect form. The goal right now should be to increase THAT number, not the most you can lift with a rounded back.
Holy shit Knucks I remember seeing your picture with naked and famous on with a spoon in your hand. You looked like a pudgy version of me. Now you gonna have poon in your hand
lol yes i can
training hamstrings never hurts.
apart from the training ones, yeah LOL
We'll see how it goes this weekend when I snatch again
