4) Hips was low, should have raised it up by 3-4 inches?;
I have a similiar problem, man. But if I start with my hips higher, I find myself locking my knees out too early, when the bar is maybe haging around half of my thigh, which makes me “stiff leg” the bar.
Could anyone give some input regarding what I could do to ease up this problem? This usually happens when I’m around my 1RM and wearing a belt.
Thanks in advance.[/quote]
you don’t have a similar problem. there is no general rule regarding the hips. what determines the hips position is the length of your limbs & torso.
just set up correctly with your feed, roll your shoulders forward (which makes you lean back a bit more which results in your hips being a little lower - that is not an universal “low”, just lower than when you dont roll your shoulders foward), grab the bar and pull.
for clarification look @ rippetoe and eliteFTS on youtube, they got really good videos explaining everything better than 99% of the chumps on this forum (including me) can[/quote]
I have Rip’s video everywhere, on work computer, my android phone, my son’s leapad even I swear every time I watch it I’m like OK I understand how it works, I go to gym I lift and it all doesn’t stick because I forget everything under heavy load
