    I got some other **** I can show you to next time we get a squat session or something.
    Ight cool good stuff bro. I was thinking off adding squats to dead day. Make them just like 1 plate and get 5 sets in so I squat 2x a week. Knees have been hurting too, have a feeling I'm off no doubt.

    Was thinking of front squats. I just opened my stance up this week to wide. While it was easier for me to go deep, I think I lean forward, which is maybe why my lb was a little sore after. Ill have to post vids of it next week.

    Front squats will be an awesome assistance lift. With wide stance, you have no choice but to have a little bit of a torso lean.

    Ill do fronts with deads then. I switched to wide to shorten my rom, which I thought would be easier on hip, and it was, I was just concerned maybe I was tilting forward too much.

  6. Low bar? If it's high, and your squatting wide, that's gonna suck.

    No I'm pretty high actually. Rob thinks I should lower it, so I guess I should. When I try to, I feel like my shiulders get stressed a little and I'm kinda holding it all with my arms for some reason

    Also did face pulls 40x10x 4

    And some light rowing.

  13. Good work man. Form looked pretty solid to me. The only thing I would recommend is to make sure you're trying to move the bar as explosive as possible. This really helped me on elevating my Deadlift.

    Shrugs for days dude.

    <-- Pollock and proud.

    Also, subbed!

    Don't forget to get in some posterior chain work on deadlift day. And squat day for that matter. When your hams and glutes are up to par, your knees won't bother you NEARLY as much, if at all.

    I would agree with your decision to squat 2x/wk with one caveat: I would squat 4x a week, two back and two front. Vary intensities to keep the simulus proper, and you'll be golden. Volume in the competition lifts is your very best friend at this stage in your career. I'm of the belief that squatting itself will improve squat mobility, provided it's done properly. I squat light when my lower back hurts myself. This will make squatting more natural to you, and I promise at your training age, you'll put pounds of gain on your squat each week. No worries about opening with 225 in my book, you'll be well past that.

    Good. He should grow to be strong like bull, then. I've never heard the sour cream thing. I've had rogies filled with sour cream and chives, but I've never put sour cream on a pierogi.

    I watched a vid by chad smith on squat. I know now I'm pushing my knees out to much, not walking out right, and I need to bring my arms closer in. I'm pretty excited to test this on wed.

    Today is my squat day, but I'm going to bench instead. I don't think I will bench next week, and I want to have the most recovery time for my shoulder as possible. For Deload I'm thinking squat 3x with a dead session and some back work. No pressing thou

    There's a few things to keep in mind on your pulls. First, you lose your arch on nearly every rep and that is an injury waiting to happen. Next, at the initial, your shoulders slightly drift forward ahead of the bar. Your entire posterior chain needs strengthening and there should be no such thing as light rowing.

    Thank you rodja. I will definitely have to be more aware. I have noticed my lb round to start my reps. I'm also going to add hypers to my workouts for strengthening.
    I did light rows because I worked out 4 of 5 days that weak and my back was sore to start the day I deadlifted.
    Is there any specific exercises you would recommend me?
