Good work BW! I would step out of that rack too or do those in a power rack like IC said. I didn't notice your hips curling under either looked like solid form.
Resolve, I assume belly full meant filling with air to create internal pressure? A trick a lot of power lifters do to easily increase stability. If so one thing of caution is that it trains the abdominal wall to distend rather than using the muscles of the core to cinch in tight to stabilize the weight. The only negative effect of that being the aesthetics portion of that is a thicker waist line. If keeping or slimming the waistline is part of the overall goal, make sure she keeps her abs in tight while squatting to keep her waistline smaller. Unless that is not a concern. BW not assuming you can't do this on your own, but he can see when you are controlling your abs better than you can. Again this is not a form correction because they are both correct form but for two different reasons. However you can end up lifting just as much cinching in the core muscle as you can filling it with air to stabilize, it just takes an adjustment period to increase core strength.Live Hard, Laugh Hard, Love Hard and Heal Fast! - KLEEN

That's exactly what I was talking about Kleen. It's the way I was taught to squat and what I've become accustomed to. It's also, therefore, how I taught BW to squat - I'll let her decide what she wants to do in that regards. She's advanced more than enough to make that call for herself.
I'd rep you again if I could, that's a mighty fine post.

Kleen gave me the same tip last November when we did a squat workout together. It's been working well for my midsection to keep the abs tucked in....GMG760 Version 2.0 ... Back from the dead.

Great to know my form looks good! Thanks for all of the feedback guys!
To Irish Cannon and MrKleen: I like having the racks down at the bottom because they help me to know when I've gone far enough. Once I hit them (if I hit them) I know to push back up immediately. I use them as a guide, I guess.
So... guess what movement I am video recording tomorrow?

My only concern it the is danger component of hitting the bars/rack. That is a lot of sudden spinal decompression/re-compression even though it doesn't seem like much when you "tap" the bar on the rack pins it extends the spine then has to resettle under the weight. If it takes you off balance even a little bit then you torque your spine to regain control you could cause damage to a disk. However there is a much safer feel knowing you are in the rack which is why I suggested the cage so you could lower the pins. We have the same model rack at our gym and we just squat in the cage to avoid it. Even I bottom out on it when doing A2G squats.

If you're experienced enough (which you absolutely are) you shouldn't need the racks on the side to tell you when you've gone deep enough; and, if I may beg the question, is there such a thing as "deep enough" on squats?
Now, I use a rack, but not with set rails like that. I adjust so the rails are just below my deepest possible squat. There is really no chance of my bumping them on the way down, but still set in place for safety.
And since we're being serious now, I keep the belly full as well.

It is going well so far! I've been feeling a little bloated the last couple of days, but I think that is due to not drinking enough water. So I've upped my water intake, and now just after working out, I'm feeling pretty tight n' lean. I've continued to apply 4 pumps on my abs and 8 pumps across my bum and thighs.
5 reps: 135, 185, 205, 220, 225 PR!
Back off set of 10 reps w/ 135
I started my workout with Deads, as I always do. Now, I've just recently started pulling the bar from the floor. 2 weeks ago I was lifting the bar from the racks at about knee level, backing out of the rack with the weight and from there I would start full range of motion Deads. The power I have from making this change is incredible. I am using my legs way more than before and I'm just able to keep form better. I am struggling with straightening my legs out a bit too soon though, leaving my back to do the work at the end. I know that I will have to work on this and I have been. My form has improved incredibly this week though! Let me know what you guys think:
5 Reps: Body Weight, 25, 35, 45 PR
BW Backoff: 12 reps, 8 reps
DB Seated Military:
5 Reps: 35, 42.5, 35, 40, 40
Backoff: 30x 10, 30x5

Great looking deadlifts, BW! You could have gotten another one or two on that last video! - These video logs are great.
Oh, by the way, Darilyn Doddy just set the new world record for female bench press in her age bracket at the APF Senior Nationals! 370lbs!
06-06-2010, 01:22 PM
370lb, huh? That is impressive.

Everything is going great with LipoBurn. I'm really beginning to see the effects that I want- I'm definitely looking leaner.
This stuff did wonders for me yesterday! I have been feeling a little under the weather- tired and fatigued (Resolve passed it on to me). I took one dose pre workout and it really helped me get it together. Mentally I was completely out of it- still tired and lagging, but my body some how mustered up the strength to lift pretty damn hard, and set a couple of PRs.
3x6: 95, 115, 125, 135, 145, 150 PR
I really focused on controlling the eccentric this time, taking it slower. I definitely expected to use way less weight, but my strength was insane!
3x6: 45, 60, 65, 70, 75, 80 PR
5-10 x4: 90 lb

Great news BW!!! You are becoming a PR machine. Can't wait to see how this treats you. I was going to put up some vids in my log but you will make me look bad. LOL Keep on kicking that arse!

congrats BW on the PR!!!! you are killing it! and Resolve does tend to pass around his nastiness... wait... what???

I'm really beginning to see some results with LipoBurn now. My waist and butt are getting smaller, and I have more vascularity in my obliques. My thighs have yet to change. I'm also seeing some more vascularity in my chest and shoulders, although I haven't been applying LB. It just shows that I am dropping body fat.
3x 135, 155, 185, 205, 215, 225
I think I did well on my squats. I had a little bit of a stomach ache at the beginning of my workout, but it did wear off as time went on. Unfortunately someone else was using the squat cage, so I had to stick with the same one I've been using. I promise I'll try lower racks when I have the opportunity guys!
4x 5-8 reps w/ 35 lb plate
supersetted w/ Push Ups
4x 12 reps
This is a great combo! I was out of breath and sweating like crazy after every set.
BB Bent Rows:
3x 95, 105, 115, 125, 135
Being the last main movement of my workout, I was already pretty tired. I was definitely swinging more with 135 than I like. Next time I'm gonna have to really work on that.
I also did some Cable lat raises and rotator cuff and light shoulder movements after all was said and done.

Looked great, you only used a little momentum on the first rep of the rows the 2nd were on point in my opinion. You can't be completely static on a compound move that involves your whole body especially in that 3 rep range.
Squats were great awesome strength in all lifts.
