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.

    I HATE Anderson Silva. He's by far my least favorite fighter with Frank Mir behind him.

  6. 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.

    Lol He's definitely arrogant isn't he! But I don't care for Mir either

    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.

    So tell me some ways i can improve. Im really itching to find out. Is it my Lowback/Hammys? I now understand you guys. Any advice on what exercises to correct my imbalances/what is weak. anything and everything. Because if you guys see it, it would be great for me to start training those.

    MY LOG ABOVE^^^ Yes i Squat heavy every single day. Come see how it works out!

  12. 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:

    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?

  14. 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

    Br

  15. 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.

  18. 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.

  21. 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!

    I'm not bashing you bro I hope you can do it. I was just wondering if I was understanding what your trying to do right.

    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!
