Re: deep squats and meniscus

Re: Help on my DL - rounded back

I don't know, it just seems more like a stiff leg deadlift to me. Probably just his longer limbs that makes it look that way.

Re: Help on my DL - rounded back

Does anyone else find his hip drive to be lacking? I don't know if it's the angle, it's just that your hip extension caught my attention. I don't think the back is 'horrible' though, like everyone...

Re: strain near lower scapula?

Re: Extreme pull ups and pusshups

Re: "snapping triceps"...? Avoid full ROM or not?
