Hi guys,

Here's a few lifts I've done over the past few weeks.

SLDL 315x6 (only shows 5 reps)
http://media.putfile.com/SLDL-315x6

Box Squat 240x3
http://media.putfile.com/Box-Squat-240x3

Does the above BS's look any better than my previous box squat 3RM (below)?
http://media.putfile.com/BoxSquat235x3

Failed CGBP 215x0
http://media.putfile.com/Failed-CGBP-215x0

What do y'all think--too heavy or is that a sticky point?


Thanks!

the vids look good. Nice squats, good depth and good pause. The deads you may want to let come to a complete stop at the bottom and the bench looks like a sticky point to me.

Squats look good.......wasn't sure you were going to get that last one :D........excellent effort!

IA recommended for me that I pause at the bottom on low rep sets of DL's, may be something to try.

The bench is definitely a sticking point...........you were close though!

Dave,
Of course I do not have the expertise of an experienced lifter nor a moderator nor IA obviously, however if I may this is my constructive critic.
1) Your Deadlifts look pretty good to me, nice form, good back position (angle), I'd like to ask you a question though, have you tried deadlifting with several feet width? if so, this is the feet stance more comfortable for you?
2) Over the box squats I think you should lower the weight a liiiiiitle bit so you can have less explosive reps; in order for you to increase time in both concentric and excentric parts of the movement, since this is way related to ego, you have the last word buddy ;)
3) The CGBP attempt, keep working on it, work out the lats and shoulders as well as the concentric part of the movement so your strenght increases so soon you could surprise us with already reached goals.
Just a humble couple of suggestions.
Good luck..!

Hey dudes,

Thanks for the comments--It's nice to have some qualified, honest experts to help out!

Sorry about the lighting--my fitrec center uses lots of natural lighting and that particular day, it was cloudy and stormy. Do y'all know any way of lighting the video clips up?

I got some new videos today, too:

Deadlift:
http://media.putfile.com/Deadlift-295x2

Tossed the ego at the door and dropped the weight significantly while focusing on utilizing my hips during the conventional stance deadlift. The angle isn't that good, I know, but hopefully you guys'll be able to see if my form is any better, in comparison to this video:

Box Squats:
http://media.putfile.com/Box-Squats-160x8

Did what a few of y'all suggested and kept my back more erect--WOW, I sure felt it in my hamstrings! How does it compare to these box squats:
http://media.putfile.com/Box-Squat-240x3

BB Row:
http://media.putfile.com/BB-Rows-160x8

I think these are a-okay--let me know if you see anything else that could be improved on.


And again, thanks for the constructive criticism--it helped me realize that I needed to drop some weight and focus on form.

Dave,
No doubt you improved A LOT, Congrats man..! as you can see lifting a very individualistic heavy weight loosing form is not the right way to go, your forms have greatly improved.
I still think in your rows these are very explosive but I guess it is each one's call attached to each one's goals.
I'm curious on the belt, I've heard wearing a belt diminishes at some degree the strength of the muscles in the lower back, again this is an individualistic decision though.
Good luck and keep posting your videos..! we all can learn from them.

Hey Fernando, thanks for the comments. I have the belt on "loosely" and not very tight so as to avoid total dependence on it.

What do you mean by explosive? Wonder if you could explain your description further in depth.

Thanks!

Hi again Dave,
By explosive I mean (and this is just a personal point of view) that you're loosing the good part of the excentric and concentric benefits of each movement, please refer to IA's articles and/or bodybuilding literature; in order for a lifter to gain much more strength, therefore mass; you need to take 1-2 or more seconds when you lift a weight up and 2-4 or more seconds at the negative part of the movement, for example at bench press the excentric part of the movement is when you take the weight to the top and the concentric (Negative) part of the movement is taking the weight down. According to many studies the negative part actually micro-tears more muscle, hence more muscle is created waiting for the next workload, if you do your reps explosively, your muscles don't have as much tension/resistance VS time, as with a little bit more slow reps, having your muscles under tension more time, remember the formula for resistance, it involves time, weight and distance, so it is a lot better to have your muscles on a set with 35-65 seconds than making a 15 seconds explosive set.
Hope this helps.
You take care bud.
- Fernando :)
