    I agree with you. Its very dull. BUT, in the end, if i can lift more weight, i WILL be stronger. So are you just saying that you are doubting me? Take for example, you work other movements soley, and come back lifting 300 for 5 reps with it previously being only 2 reps. But i do my program and end up hitting 340 for 3 reps. I guarantee you i can move that 300 for 5 reps just as quick as you can. Therefore, everything will strength. Doing main things is good, but i think your missing the fact that squatting is a compound exercise. It works everything. If i progress the squat, there is no need to work on anything else. If i start to decline (which could happen), then yea. Maybe deload a bit, and start working more assistance work that will help my weak points. But from here on, as long as im improving, nothing else matters. Ill go from here till 5000 pounds if possible. Obviously not. But you get what i mean.

    Ugh, kids these days....

    It is true that squats are a compound exercise, but, if you choose to neglect assistance work, all you will do is increase the gap in your strengths and weakness. You do not get stronger at the squat by squatting; you get stronger at the squat by addressing your technique and your weak spots. You already have noticeable imbalances and they will only become more prominent unless you address them.

    Sorry, but it really doesn't make sense. If im getting stronger on the squat, than that means im not getting stronger because im not addressing the weaknesses? And if i can squat 100lbs more, im sure my WEAK points are going to suk hard when i go back to that weight.

    for example,, if my weak point is half way through when my back start going forward. What i can do is some good morning/Front squats to correct that and strengthen that. But if my squat continues to go up without that, will i always not be able to move that weight i struggled with at first and have problems all the time? NO. Because if i increase my squat, everything else will go up. My speed with that weight that use to be heavy will be easy and i will blast throught that so called weak point you think i never address.

    Im not understanding your theory. But to a point. If i stall which could happen, maybe tomorrow? maybe in a week? Maybe in a couple days? I will most likely have to deload and start doing other work to strengthen my weak points. Simple as that. right now, everyone including me has weak points. The bigger your squat gets, your fine. simply because those weak points with get stronger.

    If im doing the squat and there is a weak point in the squat, then the weak point must be getting WEAKENED AND FATIGUED because i am working it. Therefore it is going to grow due to the stress. It might hold me back. but why change things up when your progressing? Makes no sense.

    You will make progress, your young and full of testosterone. But eventually without strengthening ur posterior chain ur progress will come to a screeching halt.

    I agree, When that happens, i will address it. And testosterone does nothing. Its all CNS..imo of course. I mean would you accept coming to a complete halt while repping 450? I wouldn't mind stopping there. Thats when i will address any weakness. Because im f-in satisfied with that. would you not be satisfied with that?

    lol.. Im not saying im satisfied like im done, but i plan on playing football in college or doing MMA so i don't think anything over 500 is really worth putting a crap load of time in. I have a good plan, right now im trying to gain maximal strength. phase 1. btw,, Is that really you in that video?

    Let me see if I can restate this:

    You're young, inexperienced, and need to take a step back and listen. You currently have muscular imbalances and, without specific attention, this imbalance will become larger. A squat does not address a certain muscle because it is a compound movement and you will not become stronger at the squat by simply squatting. All you will do is use your strong areas and leave the weak areas behind. Now, you become better at the squat due to neural programming and improving technique, but that does not mean that you have become stronger from a muscular standpoint. I have seen someone add 50lbs to their squat overnight just from improving their setup under the bar. Did they magically become stronger from a muscular standpoint? No, but they addressed a specific weak area and they subsequently improved their numbers.

    It takes years to master technique and you have shown that you need a **** load of work in this area, which should be your focus at your age, but what do I know? I only have a decade of experience and two degrees in the field.

    Dude you're taking too many steps back when you setup to squat. You would be able to lift more if you didn't do that. 1 step back is all you need, and no stepping side to side. I guess the more you lift, the more you'll figure this out on your own though. You want minimal movement before a lift, when powerlifting.

    In other words...and to use an analogy:

    You are building a sky scraper on an inadequate foundation without any supporting structures. Eventually, it is going to crumble to the ground.

    And if you play on a decent college football team, the strength coaches will tear your muscular imbalances to shreds..you'll be doing all the things you should have been doing while the rest of the team is developing their squat and cleans.

    There's a ton of great articles on t-nation. I'm going through this myself and cleaning up form / mobility atm.

    Optimize hip, thoracic-spine, and ankle mobility, and increase core strength/stability to watch your numbers likely shoot up

    T NATION | Break Up Those Hips and Fix That Squat

    This is another good article with a lot of helpful info:

    http://www.t-nation.com/free_online_article/sports_body_training_performan ce/the_squat_good_exercise_gone_b ad

    Also, check out KStar's MWOD page

    MobilityWOD

    Besides this, I personally do a ton of assistance work for my posterior chain.

    Also, check out KStar's MWOD page

    MobilityWOD

    Besides this, I personally do a ton of assistance work for my posterior chain.
    So you think its a mobility issue? Not a weakness of something issue?

    Mobility issues generally also have some underlying muscular imbalance and weakness. I'll have to go back and watch your videos when I get some time. I think if you plan to lift heavy, then you should run some short blocks. One thing we do with the powerlifting team here is a schema like this

    Week 1: 6 x 3 @ 88% 1RM
    Week 2: 6 x 3 @ 90% 1RM
    Week 3: 8 x 2 @ 93% 1Rm
    Week 4: Unloading

    We'll do that with our major lift, and then run a few complexes of ancillaries and core movements afterwards. It might be something like this:

    Mon: Deadlift
    Tue: Press
    Wed: Conditioning and mobility
    Thur: Squat
    Fri: Bench press

    People should really be just as passionate about doing mobility work on a daily basis, as they are with their lifting. Only then will you really be able to start getting towards your potential. If you floss your teeth, you should floss your muscles as well. Every person on this planet should be doing some sort of maintenance on themselves even if there is no real apparent 'issue' at hand. If you haven't already formed a mobility routine, you definitely should. It's game changing.

    I just did a one month in-class 4 hour a week mobility intensive program, and it was only twice a week, which is a good start but not enough. I'm still learning. Not saying you need to do it for hours (it was an instructional class), but once you get the hang of things, you'll be doing mobility stuff daily here n there through the day. Before you lift, before bed, while watching TV, at your desk, on the plane, etc.

    Thanks for the info, but i think im going to continue my program. I think im going to add more mobility/stretching work. And im also going to change up the third exercise. so tomorrow i may do Good mornings in place of Suitcase Deads. Then the next day im going to do Bench. then the next ill do something else. Im also going to add some light core work. But nothing intense. I think im doing fine. I don't see the reason to stop if im making progress. If i have weak areas, so be it. I will work on them in WITH what im doing right now. But i feel strong. And i think improvement is really the only thing im looking for.

    Wow man all this great advice and your still gonna hard headed about this? Zir red and rodja are very knowledgable ppl with years of experience. They already pointed out obvious flaws in form, imbalances in muscles, and problems with your programing. Your so eager for progress yet your doing nothing for the future. The strength sport is a long term thing, if you put the work into your mobility and foundation the gains will come. They will also come with less injuries. But none the less you dont care bc in a few days you went from a sub par max triple to a near max triple, which to your is "progress". By all means charge down this path and you will see how far you get.

    so when i get 450, what will you say? that im weaker? use common sense. Im adding in some mobility and doing a couple things different. It seems like your doubting me with is ok. and thats the first time ive ever hit 415 for 3. In the past i could barely hit 2 and that was on a good day. So i see the volume and everything going well right now. Matter of fact, tell me how far you think i can go. tell me. i want to know. so i can prove you wrong. i can;t wait. just say it. how far.??? give a number

    Your attitude is amazing, your age really shows. You say you dont have anyone to help you? I can clearly see why Mr. Know it all. All i was saying is your making a clear flaw of avoiding working on your base so that as you gain strength your form and technique improves and moves with your numbers. Look your first vids form was bad, and you added weight and it got worse. If you would step back do the work you should be doing that should never happen. But again, best of luck and I just hope you dont get injured.

    This is a serious question. Are you planning on hitting 450 in like 5-7 days?

    Im not injured at all. my back is fine. sure, i see my back is getting weaker as i go up, but everything is going well. If i end up hitting 450 for 3 reps i guarantee you that the 415x3 will go up with ease. No matter how bad the 450x3 form looks.

    honestly, hopefully in 2-3 days. I said i would only go up 10 pounds a day but you guys are firing me up. Expect a huge surprise tomorrow. Im gonna prove all you wrong. im hoping for 425x3 dead and 435 squat x3. I know it seems far fetched, but i could care less. BRING IT!

    my goal is to progress. Once i hit 450x3 i will re-evaluate everything and go from there. Who knows. Considering what 415 felt like theres no way i could have hit 430 today. Tomorrow im going to hit either 425 or 430 or 435. Then im gonna go to 450 and finish this off in 2 days. Motor recruitment + A will to win = success. Once i hit 450 i think im going to start doing sets of 2 instead of 3. So recovery improves and volume lowers. I will also probably add a belt just because i will be lifting very heavy. My goal will eventually to hit 500 for 1 but thats a long term goal in which im not sure how long it will take. whether it takes 1 week or 1 month or 1 year i will hit it. But i know for a fact that by Saturday 450x3 will be up. 100%. BOOM!

    Right your not injured now, but thats the bad part about injuries, they dont always take time. And I dont think any here says you cant improve your numbers at this point. We all are saying that there are much smarter and better ways to go about this.

    lol. really? So im being stupid? Sure im risking injury, but if i can squat 450x3 reps in 1 day compares to 1 month. iagine all the extra time i have to improve after that. ITS SIMPLE BASIC PRINCIPALS. take ph's. You can train more frequently, everything gains faster. Thats why people do them. im not saying im 100% right, but the way im progressing right now makes no sense to just back off and do things slow. just my opinion,. Really none of your opinions make sense in the fact that if i back down and work up to a perfect form. Or i go up and hit 450x3. i bet you money that i could drop down and hit 405x3 faster than if i went down and worked back up to 405. granted, it might not be the best long term decision due to other things but like i said. a 500lb squat/deadlift is all i want. anything after that is just pushing things to far. 500lbs is great imo esp. at ,my bodyweight.

    I didnt say you are being dumb, your attitude is just out there. Grow up for minute. And your form sucks no matter how much you lift at this point. And 500 is ok not great by any means. And if thats all your after why are you rushing so hard?

    grow up for a minute? huh? Im stating my opinion.; Sorry if it too STRONG for you. My form suks now? how does it suk/ tell me exactly why. and then ill respond. My back is dipping a bit but it doesn't suck. everything is in line. Knees slightly over the toes. back tight. Core tight. Head up. Weight on heels. cmon man. ur bringing nothing. 500 is ok at 180? what world do you live in? 455 is 2.5x my bodyweight. An in a sport you shouldn't be squatting more than even2x. I know guys like Adrian Peterson who goes in once a week and does 315 for 15 reps on the squat just to maintain because he feels strength is not as important anymore. Its more about reading and being quicker. The guy from Pittsburgh.. Palamolu i think does mar marinovich training with weights no heavier than 20lbs. hes amazing. Weight training builds a good base. but like i said. If i can maintain with 500 , so be it. but i was even thinking of maintaining with 405. We will see how this goes.

    Im trying to get there as fast as possible because i am impatient #1. #2 is that im not going to sit around and be lazy. Im improving as fast as possible. Simple as that. And yes. I have been doubted before. I always prove them wrong. just watch tomorrow morning. c you later during the day. I have stuff i gotta do after my morning lift.

    I think your form looks pretty solid. Are there fixes needed? Probably - I would love to see Zir's input on this. It's possible a profile camera view would help/change *my* assessment. But looks over 90% right. I think the others are very much overreacting because what your routine is goes against most lifting dogma, and they're taking this personally. I do not know enough on either side to make much of a claim on this issue, but I will say that I raise an eyebrow at least at the overtraining aspect. The muscle imbalance is a very important point, though, and if you for some bizarre reason refuse to do assistance work to address this you have to at least use very sub-maximal weights on the squat to re-drill proper form. If you continue training with good form trying to hit max weights, you should not run into a problem. I totally disagree with the point that only squatting will increase muscle imbalances. That will happen if you have bad form, increase weight, and continue this progression until you plateau. Squatting with proper form and continually increasing will not do this. Maybe this might be a bad extrapolation because I'm not sure how clean and jerks and snatches train your body (in an academic sense), but Broz trainees only squat, deadlift, clean and jerk, and do snatches for their lifting, and they are proving to be some of the strongest out there. See Pat Mendes squatting 800 ATG in nothing but knee sleeves. (They do do conditioning in the PM and I don't know what that involves).

    For the deadlift, I do think your form needs improvement, and Rodja nailed the problems there. And I think you WILL have to change your programming based on this and incorporate assistance work to fix it. You need to learn to fall back on the deadlift. Right now you lean forward at the start and lead the movement with your butt - this is incorrect. And you will plateau here. I recommend throwing in upper back work here and then reassessing. And saying that X is a weakness because that's where your form breaks down - is correct; but saying that it can't be fixed by working the same movement is not necessarily correct. It's just more "practical" I guess to use assistance movements that *target* the weak spot.

    Lastly, a case for heavy lifting all the time: http://www.averagebroz.com/ABG/Q_%26_A/Entries/2010/5/28_Central_nervous_system.html

    S
    ummation in case anyone here missed it: I think there's grounds for lifting heavy every day, it definitely can be done with success. But if your form is breaking down early on (like in the deadlift) it's time to address muscle imbalances as they're obviously not getting fixed by increasing your weight. Lastly, you don't seem to be in need of hip mobility work yet (but if you are feeling tight there please hit it up).


    FWIW I increased my DL from 285 to 500 in 5 months by training heavy every DL day. Hasn't gone up substantially since, which happens to coincide with a change in training style (but honestly there are multiple factors at work here).
