How come there is not a webm of a proper squat and deadlift form in the sticky yet? Wouldn't it benefit everyone?
Because youtube videos are more useful.
Klokov has said in his videos that he prefers stiff-legged snatch-grip deadlifts.
The one in the video appears to be somewhere between a stiff-legged and a normal deadlift.
No, it doesn't look like a clean at all.
I've been told that the squat may outlift the deadlift, if you keep going for a long time.
Btw, my deadlift is almost 3pl8 but my bench is barely over 1pl8, did I fuck up on something?
When he lifts those his ass doesn't stay up like Ripp says to do but goes back like hes loading his hamstrings much lower to get more velocity on the bar.
Even more pronounced with this guy. >>35821656
Is this just due to his body shape? Is this just what happens when you lift heavier weight? I don't understand the difference between the clean deadlift and regular deadlift. Google doesn't help as everyone explains it differently.
>I've been told that the squat may outlift the deadlift, if you keep going for a long time.
Usually the other way around.
Except for elite fat guys.
Yes, your bench is a bit low, but that can happen if you have naturally big legs (or cycle a lot, or did some leg-sport previously).
>When he lifts those his ass doesn't stay up like Ripp says
The hips/ass shouldn't stay up in a deadlift.
>goes back like hes loading his hamstrings much lower to get more velocity on the bar.
You mean lowering the hips?
> I don't understand the difference between the clean deadlift and regular deadlift.
Clean pulls are done by olympic weightlifters.
Here's a good example:
Dude just don't bother. Most of them don't want advice and will look at you with hostility and try to prove you wrong with broscience. People hate being wrong. You are not responsible for them. Just let them do their thing. It's not worth it.
Dude, is that Reid Henrichs? Never knew he was such a beast.
>former history teacher
>all around good guy
It doesn't really matter.
Oly lifters use those shoes always, and they're very strong.
Most powerlifters use a flat low shoe/slipper or just socks.
Personally, I squat in the raised-heel shoes, but deadlift in socks.
Can someone help me out with squat form? How far down am I supposed to go? For various reasons, I've only just started squatting now (Still, I've only been lifting for ~6 months) and I'm finding it hard to progress (Can't even hit lmao0.5pl8 yet)
Am I supposed to stop at parallel, or do I go further? I've been going past parallel, but I'm starting to think that might not be right.
I was mostly wondering that because it's hard for me to stop at parallel, but I can go further down and finish the rep. Do you think that could be because I have the bar loaded too high?
I want to video myself so I can check my form, but I'd probably have to get someone else to do that for me...
It's hard to stop a few inches before your natural stretch reflex.
If you keep your back straight and your trunk tight, you can go as low as you want.
But to be safe, you should probably stop at parallel, even though it's harder.
Once you're more experienced, you can use the stretch reflex at the bottom to do a little more weight.
Watch a few videos of olympic lifters squatting big weights.
Then look in your gym for someone strong whose squats don't look afwul, and ask them if they could take a look at your technique.
That'll probably help more than anything you ask on /fit/.
Practically nobody squats at my gym. The ones that do don't go above 1pl8. It's a uni gym where probably 90% of people are either curlbros, doing meme exercises or only focussed on upper body.
>Still, in person advice is best.
not really a huge difference if you film the form check correctly.
and i too only have a few guys squatting above 3plate for reps at my gym and none of them know shit about giving squatting advice. im betting the best 1% of fit gives better advice than the best 1% of your average gym
I'm going to change my schedule as soon as uni starts up again, so hopefully I'll come across some guys who are actually serious about lifting.
I'd ask the people running the gym, but out of all of them working there, I've only ever seen one guy actually working out there (On machines the whole time) and all the others are either legitimately fat or just look generally unfit.
I've just got to do what I can do, hopefully I'll come across a squatbro one day.
