Re: Please discuss: Your squat drives your deadlift

In my experience, the low back engagement of the deadlift serves to reinforce the weakest link in the backsquat (at least the weakest link in MY backsquat). Where the deep hip flexion of a parallel...

Re: Simple but intense WOD

@ Dave Meverden

Re: Knees go in

hey Nik, I'm curious about this myself. Can you elaborate on the advice you were given to "lift heavy" to fix it?

Re: What would you consider the perfect ratio of your max lifts?

Gillian- WOW! Great numbers, IMO. The first thing that jumps out at me as out of line, is that your Power Clean is higher than your squat clean. Very common in people new to the lifts, and very...
