OK, in that case....stop doing your first pull like a deadlift. It is not a deadlift. Chest and head up. Then, on squats, don't do low bar. Keep your chest and head up.

Haha thanks

To prevent that, hips go up at the same time as chest?

Also, for squats, I guess because I'm so used to low bar, it hurts like hell to have anything above 100# on my traps. I know I'm just not used to it, but it causes problems for when I'm supposed to be squatting 240+ for reps. How long should it take me to get used to high barring?

Depends on how your body reacts. When I work at 80%+, I still get the red high bar stripe, but no pain. John Welbourne talks a lot about how having a barbell on your back builds traps, which you should notice in a few months. Note that there's a difference between HBBS and having that barbell resting on your C6 vertebrae, which a lot of people mistake.

Re: My Video Training Log (For Critique Purpose)

It took me 3 weeks to 100% convert from low bar to high bar. I just hit my low bar 1RM for a triple on Tuesday after about 12 weeks after the conversion was complete. Day 1 of GSLP I had to drop to 225x5, 5, 8 which was significant from my Low Bar Progression (I think was doing 270-275x5). Day 1 of BS26 challenge - 4 weeks later - I was up to 255x5, 4 weeks after that I was up to 287.5 (but I noted that those were iffy), another 4 weeks I guess I quit logging them & 4 weeks after that (this week) I hit 325x3. I feel like I can drive the bar much better doing high bar. It transfers over much better to weightlifting and without doing a single deadlift for 12 weeks, that 1RM went from 365 to 395.

#1 problem for me was that it hurt my traps, so I used to just go out to my garage and rest a 225# bar on my traps. I kept going up in 10-20# increments until I got to 305. Once I could maintain it for a 20-second count at each weight up to 305, I start doing sets of 2 - squatting deep. Eventually I worked up to singles and tested my HBBS 1RM which ended up being 305. My LBBS 1RM at the time was 325.

A good suggestion from Mike at Barbell Shrugged was to not only squeeze your shoulder blades together, but also shrug your shoulders UP a little bit. It is a daily BS on YouTube, but I don't remember which one. He was answering my specific question on the matter of Low Bar vs High Bar in that video, because I had the same problems you are having. Hope it helps.

Thats a really great idea. I hadn't thought of that at all. Thanks!

Pretty good hips on the snatches. I'm sorry you have decided to do good mornings instead of proper high-bar squats, but that's up to you!

Re: My Video Training Log (For Critique Purpose)

Better on the hip drive through the second pull, but I noticed something else: your shoulders are behind the bar right off the floor, and never really get over the bar during the entire lift. This is what is throwing your forward, I think. When you catch well, you're getting over the bar, but that's rare, most lifts are forward. So, that means you're on your toes or getting pulled forward because you're not balanced on the mid-foot to heels, or both!!

And I second Andrew's comment re your squatting.

Sorry, I'm a little confused. Would you mind elaborating a little bit? :S

And it's definitely something I'm thinking about (Switching).
