i mean i don't really care, but what exactly is the point of using a slingshot then? there's no way it can help you more than just benching normally at that level. it would be like busting out chains and bands when you deadlift 225

>mfw I saved your pepe and there isnt a damn thing you can do about it
>>
>>35673992

The slingshot can be a pretty valuable tool for bludgeoning in correct form to people that tend to overflare or not get tight (read: beginners).

Not sure I'd use it a ton but it has benefits.
>>
>>35673992
it forces your arms to tuck more, can help save your shoulders

and then the benefit from general overload work
>>
>>35674016
>>35674034
i see

well excuse me for being an asshole then
>>
>>35674016
having it assist you into correct form will not train your body to subsequently use that form.

but like, what if it does?

>>35674083
Wait I found shoving a dildo up my ass and then squatting fixed my rounded lumbar back

The IPF has a lot of refs who err on the side of being stricter than the rules require. Its a pain to get redlighted for a legit squat, but it happens.

Eh. I find it depends.

If your local meets are consistent about who is judging and how they call things, it pays to account for it (pain that it is). If not, you sometimes just have to roll the dice.

so I did bench today and worked up to competition style singles. 275 flew up but 295 was a grind. What gives?

I've done 315 for touch and go for a single but I didn't anticipate a 1 sec pause at the bottom to be so different
>>
>>35674839
Pausing is a skill and a very specific strength, if you don't train it you aren't gonna have it desu
>>
>>35674839

If you're weak a few inches off the chest (which isn't uncommon), the difference between an easy rep and a grinder is how fast you come off the chest. Doesn't take much of a difference to screw things up.

If you're weak right on the chest (rarer) you're either going to be through the sticking point without it mattering or the whole lift will go to shit.

What's up strongbros and strongurls,

I met a young gent a bit back that really impressed and garnered my respect. I dare say he genuinely increased my lifting aspiration. From checking out his gym page and just being around the strong sob, I think I am going to start looking toward powerlifting vistas.

Two questions:
1. How do I properly engage leg drive on the bench?
2. Are there any good resources on the web for someone that just learned to pull the slack from the bar very recently.

Peace, love, massive gains to all,
Anon

Sparrow squats lik 110kg for a few reps I think. Probs 115kg max. Her deadlift WAS her strong suit (140kg 5x5) but she fucked her shit up
She benches like 70kg

These numbers are a tad out of date. Search her Instagram "pissenin" for recent videos.

She's the most competitive of the two, communegrill doesn't even know how to squat, I don't even think she's owns a bench lol
She might deadlift around 2pl8? Her hip shape fucks her up though, I think?

She complains a lot and I hardly make sense of it.

I would really appreciate the list of books, strongbro.

I would apply to that guy's gym, I think they would accept me and I would fit in, but I am in a tight situation all around and can't afford it.

I would appreciate your time in helping me to become a knowledgeable beginner that has high aspirations to become strong, has to do it solo in a really shitty rusty gym, and can't afford to get hurt as I lack medical insurance as a full time student/part time worker.

Peace
>>
>>35676523
No. I have coached some high school boys in lifting and see that they can get stronger than me after a few months of lifting regularly. Now if I can keep progressing, I think I can be stronger than lots of men in squat and deadlift but not bench.

Bench is my favourite lift and it should be yours to.

Download the second book called "bench specialisation manual."
It's short, only 16 pages long, 5 of which is worth your time reading.

The only thing it doesn't mention that helped me a lot is thinking about pushing your back against the bench as you press the bar up. Seriously try and push the bench into the ground.

posted this in other thread got deleted before i saw if i got an answer


i tried everything and my hips still shoot up first when i deadlift. i can max around 200 kg but my hips shoot up when i dl 130 kg for warmups and stuff, it makes my back look rounded on each set.. I've never had any lower back pain tho even tho i deadlift twice a week. I've been checking pete rubish deadlift videos and my back is in a similar position when it comes to rounding as his. Is it a matter of mobilty, are my hamstrings or hip flexors too tight? Should i switch to sumo or will i be fine if i continue doing conventional dl like this?

1. force your back on the bench with your heels and activate your glutes, if you feel your legs shaking during the benchpress you made it
>>
>>35676992
>if you feel your legs shaking during the benchpress you made it
I will keep that in mind. What can I do about my Chucks sliding on the floor? Just keep practicing until I "get" it?

Thanks

>>35677022
You have your heels too far from the bench, you need it under your hamstrings, close to your ankle's max dorsiflexion

Depends on your goal for the mert, if you just want to try out the competition or if you want to try for a new 1rm
I'm doing my first meet soon and i think I will go for a 5rm/3rm/1rm just to make sure i get white lights all the way through.
For me it will mostly be an experience in listening to judgecalls and get together with new people.

No. As in It's better to maybe have to take a bigger jump for your second or third than to Hancott out.

This is not bad thinking. For first meets those calls can kill you.

Day 96 blog (yesterday):
Skwatted 455 ayy tee gee, didn't feel right on the setup, and subsequently didn't feel right on the execution, it almost like I should have seen it coming and corrected for something, which I guess is something to work on. Not bad speed tho.

Hit some dips between sets for my pressing volume because the rack has a dip attachment. 10x BW, 8x +25, 6x +45.

Brian Shaw is one of his videos made it sound like standard plate diameter on a deadlift bar with extra long collars. So it will be close to legit but with a little extra whip.

+3 for the paused-off-the-floor deadlifts. Candito mentioned in one of his videos that it reinforces the starting-position form. For now, I suggest deloading and using them as the primary movement for a while. I don't know what intensity you should try, but I use a 5x5 @ 75% as an accessory.

I feel like my form is all over the place...

Am i hitting depth (i dont think so)?

>high bar
why
>>
http://vocaroo.com/i/s1XCHurhUYza
>>
>>35680528
Hard to tell. I'm of the belief that you should go slightly lower than just parallel with a highbar squat. Its not a competition lift so you may as well go an inch below parallel to prevent accidentally squatting high instead of trying to minimize rom. I like Canditos video on hybrid highbar squats. I occasionally go atg as well
What do other people think of this?
>>
>>35680647
I started with it and just kind of stuck with it...

I know i should make the switch soon, but i am progressing good right now and dont want to fuck that up by switching to low bar.. But maybe i should...

>>35680664
yeah those hybrid squats are what i am going for. But it seems to me, there is way more hip involvement, than there should be with my squats...
>>
>>35680689
Lowbar squats use even more hips.
>>
>>35680766
yes. exactly. That's why i was saying, maybe i should switch to lowbar, where my hip drive would actually be appropriate....
>>
>>35680793
Absolutely zero reason not to switch and see if you like it. If you want to keep doing highbar maybe consider front squatting occasionally to make you stay more upright

I've heard multiple times that Ripp teaches the power clean wrong (jump and shrug) and in my noob experience I've found deadlifting with a less horizontal back is a lot easier and less straining. Thoughts? Do I have to deadlift with a nearly horizontal back?

A few questions
Would having my front squat as strong as my back squats be a problem? What issues may it cause?
>>
done my last warmup, gonna attempt a pr in 10 mins im scared ;_;
>>
>>35679972
it wasn't just choreographed. It's also tool assisted
>>35680372
paused squats are particularly good for beginners who are uncomfortable finding depth and lack tightness in the hole. I feel like after those skills have been taught they become much less useful though.
>>35681708
the issue it causes is that you'll be less competitive at powerlifting because you have a glaring weakness in your back squat to allow for that to happen. Even weightlifters backsquat more than they frontsquat.
>>35681754
10 minutes?? why?
goodluck though lad.

This is a temporary situation. My back squat will eventually become balanced.

For the time being, could it arise any issues with muscle imbalances perhaps?

>started doing kettlebell swings for cardio
Doing 230 surprisingly kicked my ass hard, though I'm worried I'm doing though wrong. Lower back started getting really fatigued around 140

i honestly don't know. i think in general having one muscle much stronger than its antagonist is a bad idea. i guess through in some GHRs if you're going to exclusively front squat.

when i do them i tend to bring the kettlebell too far backwards. its supposed to be a hip hinge movement so really it should be just under your balls. you should probably feel it in your lower back at least some though, especially after such high reps.
