  1. Squat bars are definitely too awesome to not use.

    Here's the squat vid from tonight:

  2. 455 with no wraps, ain't bad, man. Drive that head into the bar the whole time! Looks like you lost that for a split second maybe 3/4 of the way down. That's the only thing I can see, and even that was a bit of a reach.

    Definitely noticed this. I also have a problem of not initiating the ascent with my upper back. Since forgetting this I'm finding it nearly impossible to remember this on a consistent basis.

    Sean suggested moving my feet in, and I agree. I thought my stance was the one in the thumbnail for the vid, but at the last second I actually move it out a foot's width each side. I think if I moved that in I could engage the glutes better.

    I would agree with that. Wide and raw generally don't go well together unless the person has trained in gear for a substantial amount of time. It looked in that rep like you wanted to use your quads, but you really can't do that as well that wide, (I don't care what Louie says on the matter, that's my belief).

    This. Bigtime. Reference: Dan Green (though he is a bit wider because he's mobile as ****, he mentions the use of quads)

    Reminds me of the CAPO meet 2013. Everyone but Brandon Lilly from the states squatted wider than they ever had, and I think everyone who did experienced some serious knee valgus on the ascent which I had never seen before.

    Your right on wide stance. This is great for people with really strong abductors since you load these far more on wide squats and shift emphasis away from the quads. Problem is if you don't have the strength to support that then you just cave in and things get ugly.

  7. I squat wide.


    Less quad, yes. But for me (currently) it's way stronger.


    That's why I've been doing a lot of emphasis on narrower stance with assistance so that I can build it to where it will be the stronger of the two and I can start squatting narrower.

    Which, I hope, will help with the wear and tear on my knees.

    How wide do you squat? I don't think I've ever seen you squat from the front.

  10. That's my competition stance squat.

  11. That is pretty wide. It's working well for you, though. You never know, your mobility and posterior chain improve and you keep getting thicker, you might have to go wider. It's a neverending battle. I'm always finding tiny adjustments and making them and then assessing them. Sometimes the adjustment is mental and it feels better, then I go back to the tape and nothing has changed. You guys have seen me bench three completely different ways. It's important to stay in tune and keep abreast of your body, it's constantly changing.

    I love everything about breasts. Except skinless chicken breasts. Those need barbecue sauce. Now I'm wondering what all the other varieties of breast would be like with barbecue sauce...

  15. Chest is feeling pretty solid today. I will go ahead and plan on doing my speed work. I think after my speed work I might throw on the slingshot and work up to a heavy something, maybe a heavy double or triple. I dont know, however, if I'll do my ohp. We'll see how I feel warming up.

    They're supposed to be floor presses.

    I think I'd die or become superman if I did that, haha.

    I'll either report back that I'm superman, or, you'll know what happened

  18. So I'm at the gym right now. Worked up to an easy 315 for 1. Took the slingshot off and heard loud clicking and really sharp shoulder pain. Also feels like the shoulder has almost slipped out of its socket though things look ok in the mirror. Damn. Maybe another day. Shutting my workout down. Gonna finish it tomorrow

    It's feeling better today, thanks. The stabbing pain is sort of gone. But I'm having some lingering soreness when I internally rotate my arm or if I rotate my left arm clockwise in front of me. I'll check it out after the weekend.

    I'm probably going to swear off floor presses for a long while. I have never been able to floor press without some sort of pain since picking the exercise up in 2012. Could be that it's revealing some issues that I mask with my powerlifting bench setup, but either way, it all kind of sucks.

    Happened to me a few days ago too.

    Took the LAX ball, biofreeze, and did some band work through the whole ROM and it feels 100x better now.

    I certainly bunged mine up a few times over the years. Heard the little ping and everything.
    It would splint, as soon as I would try any rotation of the upper arm.
