    i did a little bit of parkour when i was younger....plus if i wasn't out of it i would have landed fine. ideally would have done this: 5x3 squat 1x10 squat 3x5/6 ohp 1x10 ohp 3 sets cgbp 5-8 sets of rows(any variation) DIPS/CURLS GHRS 3 sets. my hammies are quite weak and read something from jim wendler saying...that you can't get strong hammies from just fixing your squat form if you have a imbalance.
    STill. That's like polevault record height to fall from and they fall onto giant mats.... Unless you have made parkour skills.
    That's like higher than a second storey window...

    Also, What weight was the squatting/OHP'ing at? Have you starting posting in your blog again yet?

    thats what i used to do and then someone was like "your deadlifts like a squat" get the slack out the bar and pull from there etc etc.

    will do what you said and try get a recording, as my forms usually decent.

    Miscers really are quite delusional, annoying and idiotic at times. At others they are funny as fck, just a bit of an imbalance at times!
    Lool @ the misc trying to create a secret society- 30 page thread in a night, full of serious ideas.

    Gallium your form is very good - much better than I expected - and I agree you don't squat up a deadlift, it's a pull. I think that your back is slightly weak. Also, have you tried a narrower stance?

    first time squatting heavy for a long while

    did 140 for a few sets of 3, and 150 for 1 - all pretty easy, deep and without belt something to build on now

    i have pretty bad anterior pelvic tilt.....that may be the cause , i used to deadlfit a little bit more narrow then i do now, but by the recommendation of matt i did that 'jump in the air and where you land you should pull from' thing....also that video was the first time i consciously tried getting my shoulders over the bar as much as possible, also i have weak hamstrings i know that for sure....been lazy with hitting them directly with ghrs and stuff....gonna religiously do them and reverse hypers.

    edit: smack! the problem is weak core for sure....just realized it my lower back may be strong but core weakness puts my back in a vulnerable position. anyone feel free to recommend me a 'core' workout.

    Yeah admittedly I do it more like Olympic lifters due to getting more glute activation and hip drive to help with powercleans and sprinting.

    nice bit of trivia

    the powerlifting comp pete and I were at last weekend, there was a guy doing the bench only. Can't remember his name. Anyway, I said to my mate 'he's strong bla bla ' - my mate told me that he used to be a big taekwondo fighter , in the olympics. Back when Chuck Norris used to compete in martial arts (before his acting career), this guy who was benching was one of only about 5 men who beat him.

    That's something awesome to say, 'I beat chuck norris in a fight'

    Whats wrong with rounding back during deadlifts? I've been doing mine roundback for ages, including lighter attempts, and I get less doms and soreness and generally they feel very good.

    Yes. There's an old-school deadlifter who got 700-800lbs raw and he said he found it a lot better and safer to use a very rounded back.

    I don't know if he got lucky with no injuries but still.

    How come both Magnusson and Koklyaev start the deadlift with thier hips low if it's not good form?

    Koklyaev is a weightlifter and Benni does not start with his hips low.

    It's all up to what you feel is better.

    Slowly you'll get into a groove. Some start very low, others don't. Either way, they pull huge numbers so as you can see, both types can work.

    Having to get a first in Law to stand a decent chance of a training contract = all work and no play Mirin?

    On a first so far in second year, but only have time for gym and nothing else.

    I am finding the free movement of goods topic in EU law dry as hell and that is making it difficult to command a strong understanding of the area, i want to form an opinion but i am just not engaged in the material. I seem to remember Commandant here referring to it as the joint worst module in the course alongside equity. Care to share any words of wisdom from your hindsight?
