    No, the bar doesn't come down too far. You lean over the bar too much, let your hips go back a bit and your knees flex just a tad as you lower the bar. As mentioned already, let your arms hang...

    So, a quick correction on some of the posts, you are NOT good morning these, IMHO!! They look really good and controlled. Only thing I see that would be problematic is the feet and ankle issue...

    The main reason you're jumping forward is because your shoulders are behind the bar from the start and stay behind during the lift. Get your shoulders mover over the bar and stay over the bar as you...

    Basically, you're set up is more akin to a low bar squat except for where you have the bar located. Rack the bar on your traps and drop your elbows down more. Sit down, not back. Don't hunch your...

    Control your descent more. it looks like your dive bombing and when you change direction to squat up you're not maintaining tightness.

    Descend slower and control the change in direction more.

    I am betting this is a spammer. Language is wonky, and he says he's 42, but bio lists 48 which I've been seeing for spammers in various subs on here. I'm guessing a new bot filling in the fields...

    Personally, I agree with this. Doing each lift once per week is not enough to really get better/stronger at the lifts, nor refine technique. Also, drop the crossfit for a while, you can always add...

    I like 531 for intermediate progression. If you're trying to some mass back on, then do the boring but big template. Slower progression for us Masters, but lots of work, and the time in the gym is...

    As an Olympic lifter, I'm going to disagree slightly on the butt wink causing lower back soreness. If that were true, my lower back would sore all the time!!

    Agreed. I use knee sleeves on all workout days. I will just add that they don't add anything if sized properly. However, there are many powerlifters who buy them a size or two smaller and get a...

    Not sure why you're after more reps for Front Squat. Generally, in Olympic Weightlifting, we do not do more than 5 reps a set. If you want more reps, do more sets. I've seen lifters do 5x5, or...

    Overall, it looks really good, especially for only being your second time doing them.

    Cross-grip can make it tougher to keep chest up, but mostly that's personal preference unless you're looking...

    I agree with NorwichGrad on making sure you're facing away from the mirror. Those looked really good. However, one thing you could do to build more confidence and stability is to pause in the hole....

    I've been lifting in Romaleo's, first the gen 1's, now the gen 2's. I've also modified them by adding 1/4" hard density rubber material to raise the effective heel height.

    You may have overestimated how much the other sports were impacting recovery, which leads to stuff like tendonitis and the aches and pains.

    Easiest way to overcome that is just get a singlet that you think you'd like and train in it. Do that a lot and you'll get over the feeling on the platform.
