If it feels good on your shoulders and you feel the contraction on your rear delts, then go for it.
I do various modifications to various cable moves myself to give me the best contraction.
I use suicide grip for CGBP (and OHP).
Easier on the shoulders. Smoother ROM and technique for me. Feel in the triceps better.
However, if I'm not feeling particularly confident that day as...
when I could rep 225lb with belt clean I could rep about 11 without a belt clean and by 12 the form was waning (core).
3 reps without a belt to 15 reps with a belt doesn't sound right imo.
small word of advice....it would be better if the camera wasn't constantly moving with the motion of your squat.
Considering you're 225 I'd say you will build a small amount of tricep arm mass doing those however you will more than likely hit a hypertrophy/muscle building plateau eventually.
Unless you start...
What everyone said above. I used to do it every rep of every set even to the point of actively gripping the bar extremely hard and pulling it down, aiming my elbows at mid-foot.
Now I flare the...
What has worked best for me is prioritizing for it and learning which accessories help my Flat BB Bench the most.
I do just about the same routine as you (Flat BB,...
I do what he ^ does and it works out well for bench press but on a side note.......
personally for me doing bench that way so much for so long transferred into a bad habit with overhead barbell...
Get the videos up when you can.
I don't know how wide your stance is however note that the wider you stand, the harder it may be to reach depth.
Hip flexors are connected to quads. Learn to curl your abs to bring your knees up. Your lower back may round a bit during the process.
I have pretty long legs and low bar squats make my knees feel like crap.
High bar and front squats are the most natural to my body frame and easiest on my knees.
My opinion is if you are holding up the racks to rotate between the rack and something else, you're wasting people's time.
Case in point. I was at the gym a few days ago with some buddies and we...
Good progress. At your bodyweight assuming it's 166 per the profile, just keep eating and lifting. Once all of your lifts get to 200 or more, I would expect to see some changes if I were you.
I usually wait for a rack, but there is usually a rack.
If push comes to shove, I'll just scrap legs altogether and do something else like upper body accessories. I HATE wasting leg workouts on...
What are your lifts like?
In my left knee, the patella/knee cap itself. In the right, it's ligaments and quad tendon.
My knees don't always track correctly to begin with so there is a pre-existing issue there.
When I do...
More than likely the 'hammer strength wide chest press' it's a press but more like a fly motion. I like to do it at the end of my workout.
Also when my forearms or biceps are zapped from other...
Casein protein powder. Better consistency than whey. Vanilla powder + some chopped bananas + a little stevia tastes good and is very filling.
You'll need volume and unfortunately if you can not keep a straight back while hip hinging it's going to be a tough road trying to find alternates.
-barbell rows (spinal erectors,mid-lower traps)....
Bent over barbell rows if you do them right
