Not really. They are somehow much less comfortable than squats. And you expect things to be easier

But they aren't.

Lads I've always benched with a flat back no arch or at least minimal, today however I decided to go for arch and "pushing" with legs after reading Juggernaut Bench manual.

My lower back is fucking killing me now is that normal (it's not the actual middle of the lower back where the spine is it's the two muscles on the sides if that makes sense) is this normal?

i was doing some clean and press'es and at the top of the rep my upper back sort of jerked outwards like it was all tight in the inside, and then burst out in a circle, now my back hurts bad and is maybe 7/10 or 10/10 if i align my spine in a bad position, what can i do now to aleviate the pain or even help repair it?

long story im a bricklayer and my traps are worked all day so i get allot of injuries there, i have had 2 in the past 3 months, they were both from doing chin ups with 30kg on a belt
when i get back from work i feel really compact and strong but i think this is whats causing my injuries now, is there a stretching routine that can help or anything to add to my diet? plz help have posted this four times now
>>
>>35138701

answer this seriously, do you genuinely think your bench is good?

Post a video of you doing 85% for a triple or so and I'll give you genuine critique on your form.
>>
>>35137928
OK lads, serious question:

1. I will never compete in powerlifting.
2. I *am* interested in strongman, and have access to a loading pin, log, full axle, and so forth.

Given these conditions, is there any specific reason why I shouldn't make the Zercher my primary squat and back squatting an accessory?

My logic:
- carryover to any sort of deadlift
- carryover to tire flip
- carry over to husafell stone
- carry over to conan's wheel
- carry over to sandbag carry
- carry over to stone load
- good for moving events like conan's or husafell where breathing is restricted

Likewise, is there any reason to do regular OHP versus axle clean and press/log clean and press?

I have access to a variety of Texas bars, a light (hollow) thick bar and a 30kg solid axle.
>>
>>35138759
I've only had the divebombing problem. That seems to have been sorted by improving my meme arch.

I'd assume the tightness problem would be alleviated by regular stretching, and more warm up sets/reps? No experience with that problem though, so I could very well be wrong.
>>
>>35138777
Is there any reason why you can't rotate main lift and accessory lifts throughout the year?
>>
>>35138809

Not particularly. I currently use Hepburn as my program (both power and pump routines), but am not averse to switching to something more strongman friendly, like Cube for Strongman. I also don't have any issues with back squatting, but I'd like the movement that has the best carryover to strongman and other activities (I am often a roadie for my musically inclined friends). I feel like I get more out of Zerchers than back squats, but if there's a reason to rotate, I will go with the wiser judgement.
>>
>>35138714
Because my program is written in kilos.
Also because it's not a dead unit

>>35138774
No I don't believe my bench is good but this thread is a blog related to powerlifting and I post my lifts as part of that.

>>
>>35138836

You barely touch your chest, and it's not even for a second

This wouldn't pass in the IPF. I guess your grip width is solid, but the way the bar comes down is not in a straight line, but rather a sort of zigzag

>>35138766

...I have no idea how to picture this
>>
Aside from deadlifts, is there anyway to improve grip strength? I feel like the one thing keeping my measly 89.5kg deadlift is my grip strength. I've also been told straps will help, but then my grip wouldn't be getting any exercise at all.

On a related note, my DL form always feels weird, like I have to move the bar around my knees when it's coming down.
>>
>>35138777
I've heard a lot of strongman types say that the front squat and safety squat bar are the two best primary variations.

I'd just go with the axle for pressing if I were you.
>>
>>35138855
Actually really good. I kind of realized this is a % that is based on without chains. Just like how it goes to 190kg good mornings

>>35138854
So you're implying the bar path should be vertical?
>>
>>35138905

I think you're having reading comprehension troubles, I'm saying the bar path should be vertical while you're bringing it down, which it isn't.
>>
>>35138883

I do have access to an SSB and did a cycle of Hepburn on that to great success.

I assume strongman should involve squatting flatfooted?
>>
>>35138777
Fucking UrbanPrimalist, forgot about that guy. I would front squat a lot and heavily and back squat as a frequent accessory. As for regular OHP (or pushpress), probably train this more regularly, the axle all the time just seems like you'd be limiting yourself.
>>
>>35138836
Your pauses are probably fine, provided you don't get one of those really old judges that make the hand gesture and THEN say "press"

Bar path looks pretty smooth

Only issue is heels up and a little forward foot travel, but if you aren't competing IPF, only movement is an issue

It'll probably just feel refreshing, and switching things up when you stall can help you break the stagnation.
>>
>>35139012

well if you're in the IPF, that Sarychev steal (you know the one) is going to have to go, if not I guess it's a good platform, but you're literally 6'4", how can you not have a good platform while benching?
>>
>>35138961
How could you possibly bench effectively in a vertical line? You start and finish above your shoulder socket but you touch somewhere near the base of your sternum.
>>
>>35139028

I think you are an absolute nonce. The point is, to bring down the bar vertically is to reduce the range of motion required to stabilise the bar for the triceps and shoulders, pressing in a slight diagonal is the natural reaction after this, which as we all now is how you press upwards.

Bringing the bar DOWN in the most efficient path is the goal as well as bringing it up.

>>35139111
Not him but a proper bench begins just below the nip and ends just above the nip.

This is the shortest SAFE bar path, it's almost a straight line.
>>
>>35139134
I assumed good form starts with your arms straight, over your shoulders, and then coming down it touches your sternum. That's really the only way I've seen people bench correctly ever.

Not saying my word is law, I've just never seen it any other way irl.
>>
>>35139134
It begins and ends above the shoulder if the arms are fully locked out. Touch point is individual, but it's at LEAST below the nipples if you want it to be safe.

>>35139173
The shortest distance between two points is a straight line so it would make sense to press the bar straight up. The only problem with that is that you will negate the strength of your front delts and instead put them in a very stressful, disadvantageous position. What you actually want to do is press straight up out of the bottom and then at the top third of the range, start allowing your elbows to flare out to the sides slightly while pushing the bar back just a bit. If you do this correctly you will lock out the bar where it started, about one to two inches above your nipple line. When viewed from the side, the perfect bench press rep will look like a J, instead of a straight line. If you press up in a straight line your arms will be tilted forward a few degrees, instead of perpendicular with the floor. This makes the lockout far harder than it would be if you pressed slightly back and took advantage of the strength of your front delts.

>>35139043
so you go down vertical and go up in a slight diagonal, then reposition bar at the top again

I didn't realize how much complaining was in plg threads until I started coming to them. They're still a good source of info for my stupid questions, but still.

Anyway, I'm gonna try farmers walks and a few other things. Hopefully they'll help my DL go up. I guess worst case scenario is I buy some straps while my grip strength gradually improves.

>>35138864
i don't believe that your grip is so weak that using chalk and mixed grip you can't hold onto 100kg
>>
>>35139564
Lad if you're south of 2pl8 (and not Sean/Sean derivative) just do some more deadlifts and hold onto your last rep as long as you can, no need to go adding all sorts of shit in.
>>
>>35139564
Could also do static holds. Or work with an axle. One of the gripsters that frequented Boss recommended fat bar dead hangs, eventually working up to fat bar pull ups. He was also fond of towel/rope work and plate pinching/flipping
>>
>>35138864
>>35139635
Wait, if it actually is only 89kg, maybe just learn mixed or hook grip, and make friends with lifting chalk.
>>
>>35139622
>>35139673
My gym doesn't allow chalk, but I've never tried mixed grip. Also I'm under the sneaking suspicion that maybe my form is just whack.

>>35139635
That sounds doable. Like I said, I'm hoping it's my grip and not just my form.

>>35139648
I'll look into all of that stuff. I just realize that my grip strength is shit because of deadlifts, and the fact that I can't hang from my doorway pullup bar for longer than 10-15 seconds.
>>
>>35139705
ok well switch to mixed grip and buy liquid chalk. deadlifting double over hand is dumb in the long run.

/plg/ I've been a salty cunt and haven't been to the gym in three weeks.

How do I re-ignite my lifting obsession?

My plan was to compete around this time this year but now looking towards next year.
>>
>>35139705
So in regards to the no chalk thing, there are a couple options:
1. Liquid chalk, works just as well and makes no mess.
2. (Have not tried yet) Supposedly a single sheet of paper towel will work.
3. Talk to the gym management and see if you can establish a verbal contract that so long as you THOROUGHLY clean up after yourself, you may use chalk.
4. New gym.

"Squats Squats Squats Squats SquatsSquats Everybody"

A training Diary, By Captain Poutine

With trepidation I approached the cage today. The plan was to try squatting until my injury started to hurt, then stop. Ended up getting all the way up to my 5+ and getting five. Could have pushed for six, but I'm kinda spooked by the injury, so I didn't mind leaving a few in the tank. The inury wasn;t pissed off at all, in any way. In fact the stretch at the bottom felt amazing.

I will say this though: that entire session probably yielded, without a doubt, the absolute ugliest and most abhorrent squat form I have ever seen. Taking a two week period between squat sessions is not something I can afford to do. Weight shifted to my toes a few times, the forward lean came back, I was just all over the fuckin place, until the third 5x10 set when I was finally able to get my shit together. Shows how much of a rookie I still am.

Feelin a little discouraged, but reminding myself that we all have shite sessions.

Both of these things.

Depth is entirely my own fault, both of these videos are of me squatting without facing the mirror that I normally used to judge depth.

I've always been opposed to heels, because I figured I'd just get my mobility better, but now I realise I'm being an idiot, and should probably get some shoes.

You 're gonna be fine lad. Focus on other things while you 're recovering, maybe studying, personal relationships, other hobbies and you 'll be back at the gym without realizing it.

What's the fastest way to progress my deadlift to match up with my other two lifts?

I had a lot trouble trying to figure out how to deadlift properly and now I ended up doing sumo.

I do TM for the other two lifts and also do TM for sumo right now, to fit in.

Added adductor machine as accessoire.

Anytbing else of importance? Should TM do acceptable progress to my deadlift?
>>
>>35146009
TM should be fine, I assume you're doing some kind of volume work, right?
>>
What do you guys do for ab work? I think mine are holding me back a little bit.
>>
>>35146102
Yea, lower VD (4 day split template version of TM) has me doing 5x5 squats and then 3x5 deadlift, both at 80%.

I do some leg curls and adductor stuff afterwards.

ID is both for 2 sets of 3 RM then.

I am actually so used to not deadlifting that I haven't even kept in mind if I progressed it the last weeks.

Kind of fucked up there, but I hope I can fix it

I have my first ever meet coming up at the end of January, so I have a couple questions.

How much water weight is a reasonable amount to cut? I'm currently around 6 lbs above the cut off for my weight class, so would it be okay to continue bulking at around 0.5 lbs/week until mid January?

Also how much of a strength loss should I expect when I cut water weight for the meet?
>>
>>35146493
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=K8nzxLOvcSM

>>35146493
If you've never done a water cut before, I wouldn't want to try more than four or five pounds for my first meet.

water cutting if you weigh in hours before your meet is absolutely retarded

>>35146658
Well I already signed up for the 163 lbs weight class because my total is high enough for that class to qualify for collegiate nationals. My morning weigh-ins currently range from 166-169 or so. I think if I just eat at slightly above maintenance until a week before the meet, I should be able to make weight.

No, like, the pain I have been suffering from all week.

It's gone. I think something about those squats stretched the offending muscle to give me some release? Four days until next deadlift session, obviously not going to push hard, but I'm feeling hopeful. Also because the recovery time was significantly shorter for this bout. Makes me believe the injury is healing nicely.

I'm going to chalk it up to a combination of awful hamstring mobility+bad ankle dorsiflexion = fucked squats. Basically I'm going to double down on those two points of mobility.

>hamstring mobility
I feel like this is pretty much never the issue. If it seems like it is, it's due to excessive lumbar arching

It took me 3 views to realize he literally had no legs. That was fucking awesome.

It's probably fine, it's pretty tough to significantly damage a belt. I wouldn't want a double prong though.
>>
>>35147388
what exactly is the difference between double and single prong?
>>
>>35147400
A single prong has one prong and double prong has two? It doesn't make it any more secure than single and it's a bigger pain in the ass to get on/off.
>>
>>35147422
i get that, but does it really make such a difference? I've never tried a belt so I don't know.
>>
>>35147447
...no, it doesn't make any difference, it's just more difficult to work with.
