  2. As far as the squatting goes the depth was fine for body building purposes. You could probably adjust it up or down a little for knee safety. One thing to keep in mind is for knee health it is much safer to either go a little above, or a little below parallel with squatting. Your knees are at the weakest and most stressful angle at 90 degrees so it is healthier to change directions either just above or below parallel.

    You look sick in your avi!

  3. What I've found to be the case with myself and my training partners is that knee pain manifests itself when the knees come forward in the squat. Any time the knees come forward, there are tremendous shear forces on the knee joint. To help with the knee pain, you're going to want to keep as vertical of shins as possible. We accomplish this by, as has been said, forcing the knees out.

    A simple "knees out" cue often doesn't do the trick, though. What works for me is "screw your feet into the floor". For others, it's "spread the floor". And sitting back a little more will also help you to both stay on your heels AND keep a little more vertical shin. Your quad involvement will be lessened to some degree, but that'll ramp back up as your depth increases and the weight moved goes up.

    As you're not looking to compete in powerlifting anytime soon (I think?), there's no real need to push depth, just take what you get. You might be humbled at first if your hips can't take the load, but I've found that the hips increase in strength very rapidly, so you'll soon be moving much more weight than before.

    Oh, I own a pair of those. Try running in them. You'll use muscles you've never used before. They're actually pretty functional. It's easy to be disenchanted by what you don't understand, though (not referring to you Mountain).

    I have 2 pair lol (1 pair no longer fits).


    Sprints, squats, DL, etc.

  9. I lift in wrestling shoes, same basic concept of just a lil rubber under the sole of the foot. I don't think I could deal with Vibrams, not a big fan of stuff between my toes. Even flip flops bother me.

    Yeah, that feeling takes a bit to get used to, but they'll actually help to straighten your toes out some too. Kinda neat.

    I second everything here. Especially about the hips getting used to the weight quickly. Tough at first, but you'll get the weight back fast.

    And I squat/pull in chucks. Changed my life.

    All black chucks? My brother has them, I think they're sweet. Custom chucks, too. Saw a sick pair a dude had that were all black with a white stylized American flag decal on the side, superman chucks, Animal Pak chucks (those might only be for sponsored athletes). There's sweetness to be had out there, relatively speaking. Lol.

  16. I picked up some of those not so attractive Reebok Nano's that are the rage in crossfit. Reebok store had a crazy nice sale or I would not have purchased them. They are flat and maybe don't look so wack like chucks?

    Have you worn them yet? If so, what do you think?

  19. Yes I have worn them a few times. My feet are somewhat flat anyway so besides how they look, they are quality for leg day. Squats and Presses felt much better than what I was using before (Nike Free). The material makes them very flexible also around the top of the foot and ankle. I can't really see why someone would complain about them other than their somewhat ridiculous colors.

  20. Yeah.

    on rear lat spread, lift arms upward a bit more, not so much where it looks like you are carrying luggage tho
    if you are going for the other pose, place hands in that bottleneck portion of your figure, press inward as you push lats outward
