PES/USP Testifying for my Muscles, Celorza to the Stand!!

Page 15 of 17 First ... 1314151617 Last

  1. You need some technique work on the sumo. It's hard to tell from the video, but it looked like your knees went in, which made your ass come up before the bar started moving. Also, you need to have a big, tight arch in your lumbar and your scapula should be retracted and not rounded. You kinda turned it into a sumo stance SLDL and used all erector strength to complete the lift. Were you using a DL bar or just a regular bar?

  2. When I tried my DL, I was low ass an inch from the ground...

    Lift the fücking weight from the floor, or leave it on the ground. The thoughts are supposed to be daunting. The pain is meant to be tormenting.

    That's too low. There aren't too many technical carryovers from conventional to sumo, but one of them is making sure that the should joint is in line with the bar. If you're that low, chances are you shoulders were behind the bar.

    He meant well with saying to keep your ass down as that's how you're supposed to do it, but you should not be that low to ground.

    No problem.

    C, not sure if you've seen it, but here's a vid of me from several months ago pulling sumo.



    Notice the hip and head position does not move throughout the pull as you should envision the movement of a leg press.

    Olympic bar , and yeah that form sucked! Knees didn't go in, but stance wasn't wide enough and back wasn't properly arched . I'll work on it and put up another bid from the front or a higher side angle. Thanks for the input bro!

    I kinda thought it was an Oly bar based on the amount of flex (or lack thereof). Really work on that positioning as it is the most critical element of sumo and the hardest to really master. A 1RM will always be a little dirty, but it should still be ~90% technically correct.

  10. Strong work in here man. Your log is full of great info with all the discussions. This stuff has me tempted to really devote myself to more of a powerlifting approach. Hmmmm....

    Thanks bro, but it is all thanks to the great bros that I have helping me out here , I'm real thankful for that indeed. And yeah I would say powerlifting approaches are the most fun for me xD I enjoy this a lot, but BBing EW...too complicated! Power is where the good times are (though it is frustrating when your lifts don't go up too haha)

  12. Forgot this word of warning:Consistently doing both sumo and wide-stance squats in the same week is not a good idea. It will slowly break down your hips and leave you with some gnarly impingements if done for a long period of time.

    Thanks for that! I have been doing shoulderwidth ATG and was thinking of going back wide stance for some weeks, I'll stick to ATG then.

  16. Can't he get a pair of briefs to protect his hips? Or is that not enough and he should still lay off heavy amounts of wide stance

    I think what Rodja refers to is the fact that if I am using that stance for 2 movements in 1 week it can and will lead to overuse injury. I take it it is the same way as using the Rotator cuff for like 4-5 days a week, more exposure and stress on a joint (in this case the hip joints) can lead to unnecessary strain and wear of the cartilage maybe?

    Yes, he could, but I try not to recommend gear.

    Yeah I ditched my belt and straps due to hearing this many times from my coach and from Rodja. Funny I lift better and stronger without it (Prolly because it was a wide belt).

    Besides I wanna compete in the Raw class at some point...so I better not get used to gear !

  20. ^^ Uh yeah celly i understood what rodja meant. I was just asking if briefs would help.
    Idk about you but i WILL NOT squat without a belt. I LOVE my lever belt.. You cannot get as tight without one. That's a fact.

    Why don't you reccomend gear rodja?
    also
    how do you feel about the no belt squatting?
    (im sure for lighter weights it would be fine) but i'm thinking when you get into even something that is a hard set of 10 you should probably wear it...
    **** man i wear my lever while squatting 135. I just like how i can get tight with it on and i feel much more sturdy..

  21. Lots of good training discussion in here. The log is great, but I love the back and forth discussion and idea exchange. I'm soaking it all in even if I don't post in here every day.

    I always wear a belt on heavier sets. For squats, I start at 405-455 (depending on the day).

    I don't recommend gear because it's a kick in the balls. It's a pain in the ass to size and to get a lot out of them, you need help on how to work it. A good pair of briefs should take at least 5 minutes to get into place and most are not ready for the discomfort that comes with gear.

    Instead of going all the way to failure with 245 went ahead and dared higher into the weight almost scraping my max with the weight of the chains. Felt good, and it is definitely teaching me to keep driving.

    -Still solid and feeling nice muscle fullness, and actually had a nice pump post cardio in my hammies and calves. Had sick veins running from my calves to my ankles for a good while. Forgot to take pic haha sorry guys, but yeah sorta like my bicep veins.
    -Not noticing any decline since TP ran out yesterday.
    -AB makes food taste better, the hunger is hard to combat but it is well worth it for when you eat with AB pre-dosed you get nice food pumps and no gut-bloat .
