    Well. If you do 30 half squats you aren't doing twice as many reps as 15 full
    You're doing the top half RoM 30 times, and the bottom half 0 times.

    Stating the obvious but that is actually a...

    Getting there, bench is a bit stagnant but will see how we do.

    I just meant weight, the weight should get closer to your Tng weight with lower reps and practice

    Unless you're adding accommodating resistance on top of those dynamic effort %s I think you'd get a lot more out of higher %s.

    I recently did 70% 4s on squat for example and they weren't anywhere...

    The pause will be closer to Tng with lower reps.

    Particularly when you get used too it.


    Looking forward to seeing a solid comp bench test from you in December.

    Thats a junkyard barbell and a half, even most cheap commercial bars at worst have a ****ty hybrid ring between 32 and 36.

    You can't fall backward unless the weight is shifting behind your centre of gravity.

    So you are either most likely not allowing enough knee travel and overbiasing the hips.

    Squat is a balance...

    I'll disagree with the above.
    There's not enough evidence to suggest the bar being higher would be better.

    However, why don't you try a wider grip. I know keeping hands close feels like you get...

    They are uninformed. There is no technical requirement or injury risk for knees going past toes. If you want to actual stress the quads it's something you do intentionally, such. Platz squats, hack...

    You can aim for some form of so called overload without expecting a certain rate (which is generally foolish at all levels).

    Or you can run by the book garbage with set progression

    Not really.

    The differences are largely overstated, particularly in terms of what type of routine to run, how much volume, what intensity etc.


    I don't think the terms make much sense at all...

    You try to stay to upright, which is why your upper back rounds and hip tucks pretty quickly on the descent.

    If you allow some more lean and let the hips come back as you sit down you'll end up...

    Well that sucks.

    Sorry mate.

    Looks like a great meet with smart choices. Well played.

    Good work all round
    No need to worry about the odd low day Eli, "punch the clock sessions" matter as much as PR ones.

    Week 2 for me of Block 5.

    Going pretty well, matched best of last block if...

    Sounds great man.

    Also take plenty of food, and don't warm up to early for bench or deads..
    Meets take a while

    Looking forward to seeing the footage, been a while for me and there's gym...

    What level meet? After a certain point only brands that pay to be are comp legal.

    Good luck with it. Take light openers and get white lights early

    Link fixed, there are variations among high and low bars and we can all do either.
    But being general, longer femur individuals will suit a wider stance lower bar position more. If you look at...
