question to big bench pressers about unracking

I noticed the more weight I can bench, the more difficult and sometimes painful it is to unrack the weight If I set myself up on the bench properly, in order to unrack i have to push up and a kind of unnatural angle, and find myself shrugging, then I have to fix my lats again before I can bench....

Smile When to deadlift while squatting 3x a week

Hey guys! My question is: When should I do deadlifts on a program where I will squat 3x a week. I'm 16 and I am currently running the smolov squat program. The program is very challenging, especially because I have pain/soreness in my lower back, because I squat low-bar (which I feel is very taxing...

Do oly shoes add weight?

So I'm looking to buy some oly shoes and was wondering if it increases your squat at all. I'd say my squat is more of a hybrid squat than high bar. I have pretty good ankle mobility so depth isn't as issue and my form is pretty good as well. I'm still going to buy oly shoes regardless though

High/max tension vs low/no tension technique

To describe this. If I lift I can either use maximal tension in my muscles and joints, or zero/low tension. With less tension the rep simply occurs quicker. I can squat, bench and deadlift (conventional and sumo) with these styles. OHP and bent rows I use only low/no tension. I first competed...

Lower body lifts lagging

I've been doing SS, then I modified it after about 3-4 months because I started working full time again as a waiter and the stress on my legs (8-10 hours daily standing) has been a factor in recovery since I'm pretty firmly in the advanced novice phase. I also reduced my calorie intake because...
