The camera angle on the squat video is awful.[/quote]
Thanks for the post! But seriously it’s because I work out at home and there is limited free room around the power rack, that is literally the best angle I could get using my phone camera.
@B rocK: Thanks I will definitely try and squat slower and tighter with my elbows in… thought they were in but once someone points it out its clear to see. Bench I shall try tucking the elbows a little, assuming you mean on the lowest point of the push they went to be just by my sides? Deadlift: ill sort it thanks
@fabiop: Again ill try it, and definitely try and slow down my lowering, that neck hyperextension looks horrible now its been pointed out! I also agree I need to remember to think “be tight” all the way through my lifts.
@Jereth127: well noticed on the elbows, I wouldn’t have thought i’d been doing it at all but ill glad you pointed it out, I will fix this.
@polo77j: i agree and thanks man
@absolute3: Will do, it’s odd to think from a beginners point of view that slower will actually mean being able to “bounce” out of the hole more effectively, but i will definitely slow down and make sure I still keep sticking to going deep.
I’ve learned that the bench isn’t a straight up and down movement unless I was doing a “westside barbell bench”, which i’m not. I’m pushing from my strongest position at the bottom to locking out at my strongest holding position at the top. Mixed grip is prescribed as fine to use on your max effort lifts, I don’t use it on any of the warm up’s… but even with plenty of chalk I can lift well over 10kg less without using mixed grip, I will reset the bar and keeps my arms straight though from now on.
Thanks for the advice, the back image is below.
