    Yeah you're absolutely right. One of those "fix it all" days within my dome.

    That's why I love a journal-I put my stupid ass thoughts out there & smarter lifters smack me back in line.

    DL form-first off I've seen that video, and that dude never ceases to amaze. He really is a freak. Yeah, I do need to get a bit closer...I've got to nail down the relationship between having my hips close but still having shoulders back. My short-ass arms really hurt me here; I've really got to get DOWN to get to the bar.

    Good tip, I'll def. work that in on Monday. Maybe I'll throw in a few light sets tomorrow just to practice.
    Little adjustments at a time and see what feels right. I do think that you need to get your foot placement out wider. I don't know how tall Duffin is but his feet are almost out to the plates. That alone will bring you down much closer to the bar. It will also put more stress on the hips/groin so be careful with that.

    I go pretty wide, typically but I can still move out 2" or so a side. I hope to get my hips involved as much as possible, as I generate good power from there. Like you said, I'm mostly back right now.

  7. Why don't you pull conventional? Sorry if its been mentioned already...

    If you are going to st ick with sumo then you should flare your knees out more, get closer to the bar, and get your hips more into it. The weight looked easy for you but you need to squat down to the bar more and keep your chest up.

    I've got crazy short arms, a crazy long torso, and some herniated discs that make heavy convos both painful & geometrically inefficient for me. I have to move the bar a freakin mile.

    I like them for accessory work but not as my big mover.

    I get my chest up (I think) as much as I can before the bar breaks the floor; if I drop my hips more then my knees end up over the bar. This is where flaring knees and moving toes out will help.

    I've got to get my hips lower to start, no question.

    6'2ish. I do mobility work (usually Agile 8) 4-5 days/week. Rumble or PVC roll daily.

    Gotcha. I think if you can get your technique squared away, you'll be pulling much more weight in no time. What are you goals for your upcoming meet?

    I'd like to pull 550+, Squat 5, press whatever, I'm not really that focused on it. I'm pretty confident in my ability to go 385+, and I'm ok with that right now.

    My years of awful dead/squat technique is what's really burning my ass right now, so I'm trying like hell to get better. I know I can generate the power, I just don't know HOW.

  13. I greatly appreciate the input, fellas. Glad everyone is following & helping out.

    Haha! I love the dominos tracker!!

    I hope I didn't overdo it with the black; I went by the weight suggestions on the items...we'll see. I'm actually kind of excited to do HEAVY (+125-150#) weighted dips with this thing.
    Don't worry, man, someday I'ma be nobody too.

  27. I never even thought about doing dips with that! Awesome..

    That is incredibly cool. Guy had the broadest shoulders I'd ever seen, and he was surrounded by guys like Lilly, Chad Smith, et cetera. And he's like the wildest looking dude I've ever seen.

    very cool. at the meet i did last jan, matt f'ing kroc was the head judge.

    when he was announced and walked in, i have to say i was in awe

    there's just a little bit of pressure when matt f'ing kroc gives you the squat command...
