    Sounds like a DIY monolift guide written by someone with a lisp.
  • As 308 says, wrists should be bent back; not...

    As 308 says, wrists should be bent back; not straight. This isn't a problem with wrist wraps. I would hazard a guess that straight wrists will inevitably result in elbows back unless you are stupid...
  • Have you changed your squat form since avatar?...

    Have you changed your squat form since avatar? Because your elbows certainly are very far back in your avi, not at all under the bar.

    Also, do you use wrist wraps? If not, then start doing so!...

    All the cool kids are doing it. 308smk and I will have the eBook out next month, along with the new training method, The Dodecahedron 2.0. It will be the biggest paradigm shift in powerlifting since...

    You've really done a great job of improving mobility based on that old video. I'd hazard a guess that elbows down will not only solve your problems with elbow pain, but also make you a better...
  • Yeah, I just made that qualification because I...

    Yeah, I just made that qualification because I didn't want to be too dogmatic about it. But yes, most top single ply and raw lifters use close grip and elbows down. It's not universal, but it does...

    Another example is Pozdeev. Elbows clamped against sides, pulling them forward throughout the lift:

    One qualification I'll make is that my back is insanely developed compared to the rest of my body.

    If you don't have a good shelf for low bar squat, it is quite possible that having your elbows at...

    Rewatch my video and watch hands throughout the lift. My hands opens up and the bar actually comes UP out of my hands a little. That's how little stress is put on my wrist.

  • No, because it is supported by my back. Do you...

    No, because it is supported by my back. Do you think Malanichev is supporting 1,000 lbs on his elbows are wrists? No. The back becomes more and more leaned throughout the lift, so the weight is not...

    I've never heard this preached, but to be fair, I don't follow any of the little eBooks and everything written on the interwebz.

    Think about it for a second: put your elbows in a squat position....
  • I apologize for being the odd one out, and I...

    I apologize for being the odd one out, and I don't think all of this mobility work is a bad thing, but the obvious thing to me is that your elbows are too high. Keep them under the bar--not back...

    Obvious answer...


    I know you're being sarcastic, but this is the overwhelmingly obvious answer: if you can scrape your shins open on the smooth portion of the bar, imagine what it would be like...
  • 592 Raw bench @ 217 lbs - New All-time WR

    Posted in the fam thread, but thought I'd post here as well. Vadim Kahuta just broke his own record at 220 with room to spare in his weightclass. 600@220 looks like it may be going down soon. Funny...

    Vadim Kahuta just broke his own record at 220 with room to spare in his weightclass. 600@220 looks like it may be going down soon. Funny thing is, he had an insane muscle cramp on this lift (as you...

    Yeah, it's conventional, yet still as efficient as most sumo pulls. In after Lamar Gant.

    Speaking of efficient deadlift form: Hassan el Beghiti, a 145 lb / 66 kg IPF lifter pulling 705 beltless ...

    Most of the biggest lifts have already been named, so I'll try to name a few that aren't mentioned as frequently. My mind goes to 181's first...

    Brunazzi pulling 794 @ 179, single ply,...

    Yeah, when that 950x5 straps down was first posted years ago, no one else was really even dreaming of moving that weight for reps, even with the smaller multiply ROM. He was posting videos of 1000+...

    It's generally normal for all three lifts to decrease while cutting. Just be glad it's only one.


    But yes, my bench is the first lift affected when I cut.
