    there is no way this is your max like Penny said it's mental ....

    ok you squat with an high bar but your angles are a bit off ,
    first of all get rid of the pad it puts the bar in a bad place and adds geometric disadvantage, I know it's minimal but it makes a huge difference.


    So..... try and not look up like you do, look down in front of you and keep your elbows up (back) and lock that bar on your back , look at your poor wrists they should be straight in line with your forearms, squeeze your shoulder blades together

    the pad prevents you from doing that properly.. this combination of looking up and moving your elbows under the bar makes it harder for you to maintain a good leverage and have a good hip drive.

    The look down thing.... let me explain just use a neutral position like if you where standing in a relaxed manner , now when you squat instead of compensating the forward lean by looking up just let the head follow your torso as it leans forward ...look at this picture




    It's not bad at all but you need to fix the top part



    your DL... you sit back too much and the bar is too far from your shins, get your feet under the bar standing straight up, look down until the bar is right on top of your shoe laces , bend over without bending your knees grab the bar
    sit back tighten up, chest out , squeeze your traps, lock it and pull
    shoulder should be just in front of the bar

    That all makes sense to me. I didn't even know I was doing that with my wrists or looking up. That sucks about the pussy pad.... oh well, I guess I'll just have to man up and ditch it.

    it seems like nothing but that 1cm raises the bar further up , if the bar is bothering your soft skin put a hand towel or something ... I like the butt wiggling before you squat

    I wondered if anyone was going to comment on that!

    I think the bar will probably be ok. It used to hurt before when I had zero muscle but there is a little more padding now. I'll give is a go next week.

    You don't look like your maxed out. It looked way too easy for you.

    Catching a big breathe before each rep so I can push out with my belly has helped me get more weight on the bar.

    GHR fail

    The embedding isn't working from my phone, sorry.

    After hearing and watching Bodyhard do these undecided to give it a go. Holy ****. Talk about humbling!!! The vid is a good training tool because there is no mirror by the seated calf machine to check my form, and we all know it seems like we're going soooo low/deep, and then we see the vid. . And I see I gotta keep my torso straighter. These work my hams better than ANY hamstring movement I've ever attempted. Again, holy ****. My old gym had an "official" GHR station, and I could do those. These were MUCH harder. Chaos also showed a vid of him and his gF doing them and her form was flawless. I became so inspired; I WILL be performing impeccable reps in 30 days or less.

    Your form looks good on squats from where I sit. The camera angle was weird. Like I was looking up from the ground. Set it higher next time.

    The pussy pad? I never used one but of you feel you need it....


    As you build more "beef" around your lower traps you'll find you need it less. That's another thing: could be the angle but it looks like the bar is sitting on your neck instead of your traps. Try dropping it several inches.


    You appeared to power it up nicely.

    This week was actually a lot easier than previously. My problem was/is that I keep bucking in at the knees so I don't feel like I'm doing them properly. Maybe my weaker muscles have caught up so I'll try and add more weight.

    I had my phone resting on a step so it was low. I really want to get my form correct so appreciate the comments! Hopefully my back muscles respond with the extra food.

    no you just need to learn to shove your knees out knees buckling in is a form issue

    For me squats are a bit of a step by step learning process. you get one piece down then work on the next. You learn more and more ways to perfect them as you go.

    Deep breathe before the rep, push your belly out so that you are stable and steady when you begin to push back up. As you come back up push your knees out. If you don't push your knees away from each other you'll feel like you are crumbling when coming up.

And I see I gotta keep my torso straighter. These work my hams better than ANY hamstring movement I've ever attempted. Again, holy ****. My old gym had an "official" GHR station, and I could do those. These were MUCH harder. Chaos also showed a vid of him and his gF doing them and her form was flawless. I became so inspired; I WILL be performing impeccable reps in 30 days or less.




    DD, I don't want to leave you here alone...lemmie throw my GHR fail into the ring with you.

    In gyms I've worked at in the past, they used those pay-per-month pre-set stations. And which station would be dependent on what time of day it was so which demographic the crowd was most likely to be.

    Early mornings? Seniors. Easy listening.

    Afternoon? High school and college students. Popular and club station.

    Late night? The hard cores. Angry metal stuff.0

    Maybe I need to go late night. Anytime my iPod has died I just want to jab my eardrums out. The music is so bad.

    You can always try and ask the desk staff to change the Station.

    Sometimes you get lucky.

    I dunno. Certainly someone has done that. I hear the same songs at the same time every day. They must never change the channel.

    I believe each "channel" has about 60 or so songs that plays on a loop. They change them up quarterly or so.

    So, yes. If you hit the gym the same time every day, you're probably hearing the same songs.

    The pullups are good though.

    This is a great idea. I know my form needs work and have a workout partner that tries to tell me what to fix but seeing it on video would be way easier!

    DD and Kimm: If you can, you might want to rig up a thick resistance band for assistance on the GHR. At least that's what I do to allow myself full ROM. For what it's worth, I've only seen one person at my gym do them properly without some form of assistance, and this is in a gym where most of the guys deadlift 150-300kg.

    Botika: If I were going to worry about just one thing in your squat, it would be upper body tightness. Chest up, face back, pull your elbows into your side (instead of dipping them forwards as you descend) and pull the bar into your back.
    SQ 2x150kg BP 95kg DL 190kg OHP 60kg @ 70kg

    You can work out without training, but you can't train without working out.

    The noob effect, as explained by Greg Everett: "You take someone who's totally sedentary and you can get 'em stronger by making them pick their nose vigorously for an hour a day."

    .
    Sheer stubbornness and will is what is going to get me there.

    Today's attempts (mishaps and fails due to distractions from view-ruiners, but getting better!):

    DD and Kimm: If you can, you might want to rig up a thick resistance band for assistance on the GHR.
    You're right and it's a great idea, but I'm being completely stubborn. I refuse to use resistance bands, balls, etc...I will take my chances of smashing my face on the floor.

    I practice a few sets everyday after my workout and I'm getting much better at them. I'll throw up another vid soon.
