    Looks like tight hips. Stretch your piriformis some. (Just Google 'piriformis stretch').

    I don't agree about slowing your descent. The other critique is warranted though: try descending like you...

    Re: Sam Byrd's squat, I think it was "close," in a sense--it wasn't a Wilkerson squat. But I certainly would have given a red had I been in the judges chair, and I like the guy. But I feel...

    I really like blueberry or apple cinnamon muffins on meet day. If you make them (or buy them) correctly, then they are moist, so they aren't difficult to choke down like a sandwich, so they are a...
  • Let me be clear: I wasn't trying to take away...

    Let me be clear: I wasn't trying to take away from your lifts by saying you were genetically gifted, and I certainly wasn't referring to your leverages per se. Even for someone who has been training...

    One thing you should keep in mind is that some of the "165s" you see are cutting a lot of weight to hit 165--many of them probably walk around at 175-185 lbs. Your plan of bulking up and then cutting...

    You can't really develop an approach like "eat X amount of sandwiches between each flight" because some meets might only last a few hours, while others might last a day.

    Just eat normally. Don't...

    Platz did 500x23 on the classic video, but I was just talking about he said 505x15 was a common rep range for him to hit in a workout. To even be in Platz territory is pretty cray-cray.

    That's within Tom Platz range. :thumbsup: I remember at the end of one of his squat sessions he says, "Sometimes I'll come in and do high reps, like 325x30. Other times I'll come in and do 505x15."

    One more thing: 308smk is perfectly correct. I have certainly seen people who have made gains on a high volume (5-7x a week) program.

    That said, I've never seen anyone who thought, "Oh, none of...

    To be honest, 405 isn't that much. If you are having difficulty reaching that, it's almost certainly NOT because you haven't tried the right training method. You should be able to reach a 405 squat...

    Well, to be honest, the more I argued, the less my heart was in it... certain variables seem more important to some than others. But this thread does reveal some of the problems with fragmentary...
  • It's really impossible to say, especially if you...

    It's really impossible to say, especially if you don't know what meet you'll be doing. The last time I went 181 at a meet I totaled 1465. I think I was one of two competitors in the 181 class,...

    Meh. For me, wraps only really kick in below the point where he stopped. When squatting to that depth, I don't think my wrapped and unwrapped squat would be very different.

    If you want a high...

    Where did you get your info on uncalibrated plates? I checked the Ivanko website, and the plates Katterle uses were calibrated within less than 10 grams. I can't find any record at all that Ivanko...

    WPO was done Bolton style: full meet, but with token lifts on squat and bench.
  • You didn't address the other points, however....

    You didn't address the other points, however. Bolton's "full meet" wasn't really full meet, which was one of your reasons for citing it as more impressive. Actually, every time I've weighed an...

    Also, people tend to emphasize how young Leeman is, but he is 22 or 23 at the moment, no? We should recall that when Magnusson was 22 or 23 he was pulling 970 in competition. That's not to take away...

    It's great to see Leeman posting some videos without straps. It looks like hook grip is working well for him. That's the real thing that has held him back--his grip.

    Of course, he is not really...

    Yeah, and I didn't mean this as a diss to Eddie at all. I'm sure he could easily put up world class numbers, but I just think it wouldn't be quite as much as people are thinking. He could pull "only"...

    I'd guess it more has to do with the fact that he actually probably wouldn't total so much as people think he would if he did a PL meet. People take his best lifts from separate days, done not quite...
