it does more harm than good to 'find' point B - I don't see the utility at all.

you should be working with weight where you can use good form if the aim is to improve form - so going above that point and training with 'bad form' won't help teach 'good form'.

>>35529814
better off just finding a point that is challenging yet still perfect form and lineally progress from there.

if the point your form breaks down is far below your strength level then there may just be a weakness somewhere or cueing issue - learn how to 'fight' for proper positioning. if you don't know how then look up basically any instructional video on sumo.

fighting to keep proper positioning will train whatever weakness you may or may not have.

Gives him a hum of what kind of weights he can handle. Also it's a way to measure progress, if his point B is 90 kg, and he does perfect fives at 85 kg after three weeks, he has definetily improved. I don't see the point in doing linear progression, if he starts at a weight that is challenging, adding weight too fast will just result in that he returns to old movement patterns.

>you should be working with weight where you can use good form if the aim is to improve form - so going above that point and training with 'bad form' won't help teach 'good form'.
Did you read my post? I specifically told him to keep below point B, not above.

you said between point A and B - and if point A is challenging and point B is failure, then its just training at weights with a certain degree of failure all the time. Thats not conducive to perfecting his form.

and again, finding B is not useful

If A is the point where he is just managing to keep form, and he progresses from there with good form - we already know that progress was made. knowing he would have failed at whatever number wont make that any clearer.

its like going for a heavy 1RM, and then adding on 20kg just to go

>hurr durr then we know hes progressed

but we already know if he goes above the 1RM, then hes progressed. whats the utility of just showing he would fail at a higher weight

>I don't see the point in linear progression
you obviously don't understand what linear progression is.

his weights are more likely than not in the novice realm for him.

using weights where he has perfect form will train perfect form, and the weight is light enough that linear progression can occur

just because he has bad form doesnt mean he has to do advanced programming to remedy it while he can still benefit from LP
>>
>>35530527
>is capable of beating everyone in an untested fed the night after passing OOC test
>would need to dope to beat other tested athletes

Powerlifting, particularly the untested kind, just has a really small talent pool. That's the only reason we can have outliers anyway.
>>
>>35530527
literal blaha argument you retard
>>
>>35530541
A is getting hard and needing to focus to make form adequate
B is you can't make form adequate no matter how much you try
Between A and B is challenging but not failing.

What I tend to do is eat a strict diet Mon-Fri (same exact things every day), then I "just eat whatever" on the weekends and try to get roughly 3000 calories.
Then I track my weight daily and use Excel to estimate "maintenance" with the weekday calories for five days per week and an estimated 3000 for two days per week. From that, I can adjust the calories I eat for five out of seven days and still have some variety and a social life (as small and pitiful as my social life is).

Friends, can any of you tell me what your weekly INOL looks like for the main lifts? I'm curious about what other people's volume looks like.
It would be helpful if you added your lifts, bodyweight, etc. so I have some more context.
>>35530626
I know, right? It's so weird just to see the childish wording in a political ad.
>>
>>35530541
Point A is a weight where he has to try hard to keep good form. Point B is the weight where he can't keep good form any longer, even when he tries his hardest. By definition, any repetition with a weight below point B will not be done with bad form, since point B is the first time bad form happens.

>>its like going for a heavy 1RM, and then adding on 20kg just to go
It's nothing like that. It's like doing a single at 80% and then doing a single at 90% to see if there are any differences in form.

>but we already know if he goes above the 1RM, then hes progressed.
But he's operating at weights below his 1RM, and the goal is to increase form, not to increase weight. It's totally possible to do a heavy rep with bad form, the point is that if he's doing clean repetitions with challenging weights it's a sign that his ability to keep form is getting better.

>using weights where he has perfect form will train perfect form, and the weight is light enough that linear progression can occur
Yes, but if he gets to challenging weights too soon he won't have enough opportunities to train form and old movement patterns will come back.

>hurr durr advanced programming american meme
I'm not telling him to do a 20-week cycle I'm saying that letting weights take a back seat to form for a while would be better. If he can go back to linear progression and not fuck up his deadlift again that's good, but constantly increasing weights forces the lifter to take easy ways and shortcuts.
>>
lads, so apparently Candytoes6week does wonders for squats, so I'm thinking about doing just the lower body part of the program, but the thing is I'm not sure about what to do for the upper, any suggestions?

>why not do the full program?
because there are upper body workouts that would be impossible to fit in my schedule
>>
>>35530677
I calculated it once but it just went up quite a bit. I was daily maxing with about 3 for bench, most of 3 for skwot, oneish for deads.

>>35530701
Easiest would be to keep your current bench programming and do c6w for squats/deads.
Otherwise sheiko, TM etc

>>35530712
Hmm. I'm averaging around 1 for each lift, and I'm gaining around 10lb/month pretty smoothly on all of them. I think I could be getting stronger more quickly if I increased it a bit.
Gonna start an aggressive cut when I get back to school later this month, though, so I'm not sure if increasing volume is the best plan for that time. I might have to wait.

>>35530584
then why not just progress from A instead of randomly choosing between A to B? if A is you have to focus hard, then that's already a good starting point. Finding B is just to give more options, but if he does LP (which he should) then he'll hit between A and B by default.

>>35530687
>It's nothing like that
It is like that. the point is you're going past the point of utility to show to yourself later that you have progressed, whilst had you just progressed from the initial data point - you already KNOW you've progressed.


the best way for a novice to perfect their form is to get stronger in perfect form. practicing light weights to ingrain motor patterns sounds all well and good, but has diminishing returns quickly. the warm ups should be the light weight practice, the working sets should be strengthening the form.

the best way to do that is to LP on that lift.

and even if the worry is 'his form will break down' - I'm saying start at point A, you're saying start between A and B. form breakdown is more likely in the latter scenario.

while it is incredible that he got that wrong - I am consistently amazed by how poorly people know how to spell these days - think about it from a linguistics standpoint for a second. Past is literally just a consonant shift that happened in english who knows how long ago, where the voiced "d" became unvoiced "t". This is probably because "s" is an unvoiced consonant and thus it is easier to transfer to another unvoiced consonant like "t". The "past" is literally just "that time that has now passed".

More quad dominance, more ROM, more forward knee travel. You'll almost definitely end up more upright, even if you sit back some and lowbar. You could run into some hamstring mobility stuff which might cause more buttwink. My hamstring mobility is subpar at best and I have no troubles with narrow stance squatting when I do it.

If you're leggy and thick you can get a lot of speed out of the hole with a narrower stance by compressing your gut into your legs. You can kinda see it with my stance in this pic, even though that's not really a close stance, I'm just fat.

IMO its harder to grind with a narrower stance though. Moderate stance is the best mix in my opinion if you're not an Olympic lifter or geared lifter.
>>
>>35532379
but candito said hamstring mobility doesnt cause buttwink and its mainly a ankle flexion issue
>>
>>35532401
Candy toe is stronger than me desu senpai.

They're both potentially/equally to blame depending on the individual. If your knees need to travel further forward for you to hit depth, its ankles. If you need more hip and knee flexion without your ankles moving, its a hamstring issue.

Work on both if its causing a problem imo.
>>
>>35532443
not hamstring but glutes/piriformis or a tight hip capsule could be limiting your depth. Even adductors.

Hamstrings have fuck all to do with squat depth.

today was so relaxing. slept in made a big ass breakfast burrito and coffee, then had some good discussion on /plg/

gf came over on her lunch hour for some touchy feely time

got my hair cut and beard trimmed at the nice place that does full hair wash / hot towel / scalp scrub / + head neck & shoulder massage

then came home and drank a few beers and had a jam session with my friends. in the last 5 years i've played my guitar maybe 10 times, and it feels so nice that other than no finger callouses and my hands being out of shape, i can pretty much pick up and do 70% of everything i used to be able to.

Admittedly deadlift day was a little disappointing; I was only able to pull 425, when my starting max was 455. That being said, having cut 14% of my body weight over the course of this cut and only losing 3% off of my total is the least terrible trade I've made on a cut before.

I'm almost certain that fixing my starting position and eating more than starving levels of food will bring my deadlift back up to where it was supposed to be though, so for next cycle I'm keeping 455 as my starting max. #yolo

Starting stats for first cycle:
>weight: 226 lbs
>squat 1RM: 365 lbs
>bench 1RM: 235 lbs
>deadlift 1RM: 455 lbs

Ending stats for the first cycle (and starting stats for the second):
>weight: 193 lbs
>squat 1RM: 365 lbs
>bench 1RM: 225 lbs
>deadlift 1RM: 425 lbs (455 lbs)

Problem is gaming (with a competitive mindset like I do) fulfills the desire to be competitive in real life. Same way powerlifting helps satisfy physical/exercise needs, gaming is a way for me to satisfy my competitive side/ego. The reason I'm stopping gaming is so that I can spend that energy elsewhere in my life and see what comes of it.

I don't understand the point of doing rows when I do power cleans and chin-ups.

Please explain ;-;
>>
>>35537424
The idea that horizontal and vertical pulls will yield different levels and areas of activation/muscle development and/or that horizontal and vertical pulling will have different carryover to the main lifts.

Or because doing rows is fun.

Or because a bunch of people can't into proper power cleans and end up with retarded jump shrug curls.

Or because power cleans aren't really much of a powerlifting thing, nor are they known to be particularly good at building mass, so they tend to get chucked out for things that are.

Someone here recommended paused deadlifts for me (had problems keeping neutral spine), and i tried it yesterday. That was awesome, and i really felt those muscles in my back. Totally going to keep that variation in my program for now.

>>35537656

And another lifter at the same comp tested positive and kept on claiming it was just a stimulant... til her B sample came back positive for androgens too and she basically unfriended every PA lifter off facebook, ran off to CAPO and is now the most jacked human being in Australia with fucking chest striations... but that's none of my business...

When Odell and Scott Hill tested positive to stims a while back they managed to get it downgraded because it was accidental ingestion but this was when people were mostly unaware of pre-workouts containing banned stims. These days it's common knowledge so you just have to be more careful.

Other than that? I spend a lot of time sedentary.

Plus the timeframe was slightly longer than 10 weeks. There was a week of camping between weeks 5 and 6 (I think?), and a week of dicking around before starting the program. So 33 lbs over 12 weeks.

Back volume = 6,110 / week
Front volume = 6,400 / week

Triggered.

Should have I counted CGBP as front volume is technically it's a Tricep Assitance, and trips are on the back of your body?

How do I work out the exact load percentage on pecs and triceps?
>>
>>35538424
>implying your opinion on my opinion means anything
m80
>>
>>35538474
I'm sure that having good bench/squat form and proper mobility does more for shoulder health than exactly matching back/front volume.

It also seems like shoulder health would be rather intuitive, you should be able to feel if your shoulders are becoming wonky, unless you happen to injure them in some incredibly acute way that you couldn't have predicted.

idk, just seems like there are more important training factors than sorting this out.
>>
>>35538523
I already have all other variables such as form and mobility sorted, so why wouldn't I save myself a month and work out volume?
It takes 3 minutes if you use excel.
>>
>>35538537
Don't forget to differentiate between horizontal and vertical volume, and isolation and compound movements. Also number of sets is important

I'm doing exactly what you described, lower body from C6w and bench replaced with my own programming. For bench I'm just experimenting, I run Smolov Jr split into two weeks instead of one, so day 1 and day 2 on week 1, day 3 and day 4 on week 2. This way it matches perfectly with the 6week cycle. I also added in one day for incline bench/bodybuilding type of stuff at the end of the week with atleast 1 free day before next lower body day. I finished my first week today and I will be posting my first thoughts on it after 5 weeks(13th Feb)

Do pressing (bench and all other presses such as OHP, CGBP, incline, etc.) and pulling (rows, pullups, pulldowns or whatever you have) volume instead.

>>35538710
I work out volume as setsXrepsXweight (kg)

>>35538816
Huh, strange that I don't rain like world record tier athlete?

>>35538911
I meant, does CGBP count as a chest exercise per se? I understand chest is involved by volume would be arguably less?
It's a flaw in my system and I can't really explain what I mean.

To simplify,
Say you do 3x5x100kg rows, that's 1500 (volume) overall.
Say you do 3x5x100 bench, that's 1500 (volum) overall
That shows me that my back has the same volume as my bench so everything is inproportion.

However, the issue I've ran into is; is CGBP a back or front lift? If triceps are back and chest is front?

>However, the issue I've ran into is; is CGBP a back or front lift? If triceps are back and chest is front?

This is silly.

Think in terms of movements, not muscles.

Push or pull or hinge. Das it.

triple extension = extension of ankles + hips + shoulders

ankle extension means your more than likely going to have your heels leave the surface.

That's a fair point, but the reason I was thinking in turns of muscles is balance. I wanted my back to have equal or greater volume than my front as to keep shoulders and posture healthy.

Just heels? Not my entire foot?
Anyway, I saw good video on it so I'm fairly confident but sill confused.

I'm not sure if I should allow a little jump or just raise the heel.

that video pretty much sums it up.

You should also ask this in /owg/ because none of us know.

Shut the fuck up you idiot and listen to what buda told you..or are you gonna repeat your question till someone tells you triceps are a back muscle. Horizontal pushing movements use chest/tri/front delt, pulling the whole back and biceps

>balance.

That's good, but you don't have to over think it.

Do some vertical and horizontal pulling each week. Variety of reps and sets, generally higher rep than you press.

Some face pulls every press day, or pull aparts.

Pulling doesn't require the specificity of the comp movements, so enjoy some variation.

Fin.

Lolfed seems to mean untested around here

They red light like crazy though, so if you're a roider that wants people called for high squats and hitching and ass coming off the bench, it's probably as good as it gets.
