      Squatted 265 5x5. Farted on one of the last reps and quite honestly thought I "blew an o-ring".


      edit: thought you guys may get a kick out of this:

      what I dont get is the amount of people doing dead lifts and the rounded back ... I mean how can you not injure yourself ??? Seeing so many people with very heavy weights rounding their backs doing DL's .... how can they not screw up their discs maybe I am just build differently but if I round my back ... bad **** happens ..

      there is so much wrong with that video, starting with the fact he could have trimmed it to 20 seconds. is he wearing womens yoga pants?

      the thing that always boggles my mind is when people deadlift and when they go to lock it out they lean back a good 10/15 degrees so they look like a 'C'.

      mine is perfectly straight at 500 when I get to 600 for a single its alittle rounded.

      But it also helps if your doing some accesory back lifting also...

      I warm up my DL with 315x10 straightleg sometimes 315x15....

      It depends if they are rounding their upper back or rounding their lower back. Strong people round their upper back because it takes off distance from the pull and weak people round their lower back because they are weak.
      ok heres the ting take a corner at 35 or 45racing a ***** had a blow out sled into the crub hit 2 fents 2 burshes 4 brick and a trash can but anywho now I have a load cam knock it sounds like but I'm not sure my oil pan may have got pushed back alittle so I dont know if my oil pump got damgaed and itsn't get oil to the top of the cams does anyone have any ideas what else it could be and yea I spanked the little rice hatch back

      You are going to say that a template or "program" decide the way that you squat? LOL it's all about leverages mostly and of course whether they are raw, single, or multi. Has nothing to do with the program.

      Progress: raw paused bench = 360

      Finally touched smoothly in my new shirt.

      Did 405x3 on paused squats. And deficit pulls have destroyed my hips.

      Was stuck on 75lb DB press 12/12/11 for a few weeks. Went for 85s this weekend and hit em for 3x8. Pretty stoked on that. New PR and I've never even pushed with 85s before. Gonna work them up for a few weeks, try to hit 3x12, and then keep moving on up. I'm sure I could see better strength gains if I lower the reps a bit more, and push, but, since I have been doing 3x12 my shoulders have never felt better, and I feel like I'm getting bigger.

      Not sure was all the dancing around at the beginning is either. Get your grip tight, get a firm starting position, and pull smoothly.

      Other than that it doesn't look too bad.

      take your shoes off, wearing a shoe like that the hell compresses, it also makes you put your weight on your toes, you want to be sitting back into it with your weightr on the heels.

      x2 to the 'dancing' - you want to makes sure you are pulling that thing nice and stable. walk up to the bar, set yourself up, lift.

      also, you dont touch the ground between deadlifts, put it on the ground then start again. your strength for your size is good but you need some minor tweaks.

      Stop doing leg extensions.

      It is great you have your own gym and are a "coach" but you have no idea what you're doing. Stop giving ****ty advice all the time.

      You may have great general knowledge of "weight lifting", but you don't have an idea about powerlifting.
