    Thanks for looking man. Not even sure if I was squeezing my glutes or not. Everyone keeps finding something that I can do better. Lemme know if you have critique on any other of the vids. I'm all ears.

    Now that this is brought up, I can see where I do this as well. I think of it not as my butt resting on the bench, but rather my butt barely touching the bench because everything is tight. Does that sound right @NYiron Good finding!

  4. That's how I set up. If you watch my vids, you'll barely see my butt making contact.

    Dirty

    I notice that a lot though with arches and foot placement like all of yours. Everything just seems placed perfectly. Like it's a perfect arch shape from your feet to your chest, and a bench press pad just happens to be touching your butt.

    For me my glutes and my heels are my set up if they're set, heels driving to the floor and glutes squeezed, everything else falls into place.

    Used wrestling shoes for years and then I got a pair of Merrel barefoots. Both have phenomenal grip and you can get a much better push through the legs.

    I bought some Merrel barefoots just for wearing around. Sole started peeling off! I think I got the cheap versions.

    I'll go to the sporting goods store tomorrow and pick up some wrestling shoes. Hopefully it'll put 100lbs on my pull instantly

    Good seein ya around again

    I call them low pulley face pulls.

    He called them low pulley high pull.

    So this is my last set of 450 and my 515x3. I was on my toes again with 450 and was having trouble pushing out on them. Hip flexors weren't feeling it at all and I had trouble getting my hips into the bar. I compare the position and push through the sides of my feet at 450 and 515. 515 felt great and I felt a nice pop up because of it. I need to reciprocate that feeling.

    So, my ****ing right hip is frustrating the crap out of me. SI joint possibly? Just feels blocked when trying to open. Ideas?

  23. Ya screw hips man...I had that whole month of July doing no serious lifting and then I squatted on monday and my hip is acting up. I think it is my psoas.

    I feel 110% everywhere but the left hip...may have to make a visit to the chiro and/or get some ART done.

  25. Maybe try some banded distraction work in the position you are trying to fix. Might force the hip into position.
