    Yeah, that seems high. Different lifters use different placements, but I feel I use a medium placement--not low or high--but I have my belly button in the middle of the belt.

    Yeah, it's not always a sure thing. Especially if you already have good leverages, and lift sumo, you'll be in a fairly good position throughout as far as having an upright torso, so the belt is...

    Wow @ Cornfed. He reminds me of Spoto before his fame. I remember he came on here and posted his video and was like, "I benched 600x3, is this any good?" He didn't really seem to perceive his own...

    This is a bodybuilding program. You did a bodybuilding program and you gained size. Mission accomplished. If you'd like to gain strength, switch to a powerlifting program.

    Oh yeah, and eat more!

    Your reaction to the wraps indicates you are a pretty reasonable guy. You aren't saying, "Wow, I did 615 so easy, should I open at 630?"
    So go with your gut. Your suggestions and 308smk's both sound...

    AGGGH beat me to it.

    EDIT: What a pansy; he takes it to a rack after? Real men lower it back to the ground like Mr. Steinborn did.

    Years ago, if you'd asked someone what the biggest squats in powerlifting were, they would have given you a figure of ~1,200 lbs. These days, they'll give you a figure of ~1,000 lbs. This is because...

    I think what you describe is fairly typical for the bar path on a high bar squat. Bar path is a lot more tricky with high bar: getting too far forward or back often means sudden death; you can't...

    This is like the powerlifting version of Between Two Ferns.

    Actually, I'm rereading your first post and perhaps that's what you were saying in the first place. My advice is not to let yourself get out of that strong position and then get back into it.

    To...
  • To be honest, I don't think this is a weakness...

    To be honest, I don't think this is a weakness that needs to be corrected, but rather just proper form. Pushing the hips through is a good thing, and your squat form looks fairly standard for the...

    I've been competing for over 10 years. Never have I ever thought, "That lifter should not have competed. He should have waited until he was stronger."

    One more thing: if you're worried about your quad dominance, I've trained a few kids who are truly quad dominant, but their weak link doesn't tend to be weak glutes or hammies, but a weak upper body...

    Even if you could collect info, since there is no standard way to perform a hip thrust, this info wouldn't mean much. The positioning of feet, how high one thrusts, etc.--these are all pretty big...

    Yeah, that JP Carroll squat is ridiculously high. UPA is really as bad / worse than SPF most of the time. Eric L. is their big name lifter, and he cares what people say about his squats and tries to...

    I can't really address Oak, but I train with Tee on occasion. It's not really that he has that big of an ego--at least he never has acted that way to me, and I have met a lot of big egos. Itís more...

    Take away wraps and I don't think this statement is so true; it'd be more like 50/50.
  • The thing is, when you squat higher you don't...

    The thing is, when you squat higher you don't really need the wraps... they only start helping lower down. So if you squat high without wraps, adding wraps may not make as much difference, especially...
