Re: Form check help: Back Squat/Front Squat/Deadlift/Overhead Press

Squats: You need to move the safety pins down at least 2-3 slots so you can get actual depth on both front and back squats. Hips should be BELOW your knees Getting full depth on your squats will work your glutes and hams more and fix whatever weakness you think you have. You will need to drop a lot of weight off the bar to fix this, but don't stress cause it will come back fast

Deadlift: The reason your hips shoot up is because you are trying to sneak up on the bar and jerk it off the ground suddenly. Slow down and SQUEEZE the bar off the ground. You looked good at 135, I think the jump to 205 was to much though.

Press: get your wrists straightened out, they will get tweaked having them bent like that. Also on 110, and 115 you are knee bending to get it started which is a no no.

Yea okay, ill put down the pins down a couple slots. On the front squts, for some reason after the first squat, i moved the pins up, not sure why :P

For deadlifts, that makes sense, as I do just try to jerk it up. Ill make the movements more controlled. I didnt go straight up from 135 to 205, they were videoed on seperate days.



Thanks again guys, this really helps

Re: Form check help: Back Squat/Front Squat/Deadlift/Overhead Press

Daniel--I'm debating attacking your 100 pullups a day.
Did they have any effect on your other training?
Also, did you do kipping ones or strict ones for the 100 a day?

Thanks.

Kipping, and they seemed to have no effect on my training, but my back could already handle the capacity of it. If you are unsure about it, maybe try 50 a days for a little while, and if you are more confident, break it up into 2 sets of 25 or something like that. Also, I had to hit 1000 a week as well, so was actually doing (on avg.) 150 a day. But pulls I did in a workout counted.

Hopefully, ill hit 50 soon, and ill throw a video up on youtube.

Feel free to message me if you ahve any more questions

Unfortunately none of those back squats count, and a lot of the front squats don't either.

You need to get your feet a lot closer together, bend your knees first, and go a lot deeper.

Not disagreeing with you but trying to learn. Why do you recommend a closer stance?

Why do you recommend bending your knees first? I feel when people do this they wind up over extending over the knees instead of getting down and deep into a squat. I've always been an advocated as break the hips first then start knee bend--but fairly close together.
