Re: *** H&F Form Check Thread ***

Ok guys, back for more. Lousy workout today for sleep/food reasons but figured to take a back angle of squats and a shot of DLs. Squats are still lacking depth a bit I think but that's more to do with today being incredibly difficult and me chickening out. Tried focusing on keeping the knees out for this set. I know I definitely have to get my back more extended for DL but wanted to see if it was OK otherwise. I think I must be the least flexible person on the planet... which is great, because I hate stretching.

Squats; deadlift.

DL - dont jerk the weight off the ground. That's an injury waiting to happen. Tighten everything up before trying to get the weight off the ground & think about squeezing the weight off the floor.

Re: *** H&F Form Check Thread ***

bixby, I'm obv no expert, but I think your back was too rounded on the deadlifts. Not sure about squats, hard to see from that angle.

Re: *** H&F Form Check Thread ***

squat - hard to tell everything from the back, but your knees are caving a little. you could try narrowing your stance a tad, too.

DL - what cha said. stop this drop your ass, bend your arms, and try to jump through the weight stuff. get in the right alignment and just pull. Your slight lumbar rounding will probably cure itself if you setup properly.

you actually finish the DL quite well. From above your knee to lockout is textbook.

Host them in Australia.

I think someone said youtube had a rotate feature when you upload vids.

Quick form check here, but the angle kinda sucks:

DL 315x5

http://www.youtube.com/editor has a rotate feature. You have to upload the videos first, then can concatenate, rotate and add random music as a soundtrack.

Re: *** H&F Form Check Thread ***

Re: *** H&F Form Check Thread ***

Thanks for the upload <3. It seems like they are pretty lax about the bar positioning, some are HB some are LB anyone know what the consensus is?

Re: *** H&F Form Check Thread ***

it kinda does. some PLers seem to manage a very posterior-dominant squat with a HB position, but it's very tough. It's a pretty awkward movement.

Anecdotal evidence: we have a guy at our gym who's pretty damn strong. A lean 200lbs who can pull over 500, but his squat is **** and I think a lot has to do with his bar positioning. He has a HB squat but he's still sitting way back. it's killing his balance and hip drive.

I'm too lazy to link all the videos right now - but Smitty from Diesel Crew has a similar series of videos on EFS.

Some light deadlifts to check my form. Also let me know if I need more angles or a better video. I had a super sore right shin so bar path may be a little biased.

I think those look pretty good but form checks at light weight are pretty useless imo.

What I meant was, squatting at all is way more important than which squat you do. Apart from extreme suited powerlifting squats in general most people will do HBBS or LBBS or something in between and it doesn't matter too much as long as form is good. The whole HBBS vs LBBS seems sort of pointless to me. You can make one resemble the other rather easily so they are basically only minor differences.

ima be really nitty since you're putting this in the form check thread.

They look good, but you're doing the hips rising first thing (go frame-by-fram imo), I just don't know how much of a bad thing this is... I feel so much less likely to hurt my back when I do it like that.

Seem to struggle a bit in each of the sets with a rep. Not sure how standard that is.

Shoulder presses 3rd set:

Bah I just realized while watching my presses that even though I thought hard about not cocking hands back when bar is lowered as soon as it goes up my hands get cocked back! So it has same problem as before.

Re: *** H&F Form Check Thread ***

Those squats look pretty good, hamster. You let your slide forward on an occasional rep (e.g. 1st rep of 1st set and 4th rep of 2nd set, maybe some other), but they look good for the most part.
