Day 1 Starting Strength Form Checks


#1

Hey guys,

My first day of starting strength today, put a little video together for some form checks, I’m 183cm and around 85kg.

The squat and deadlift videos are of my final working sets. My OHP video is lighter than I ended up at due to poor cam placement on working sets.

Apologies for the horrible music!

The problem is not with T Nation, the link embedded fine. It’s with YouTube, your video shows up as “unavailable”

Turns out it was copyright issues, sorting out now

All looks good but personally I’d rather have a bit more bar speed in your first session. Especially your squat.

Give yourself a running start at this thing. I’d knock off enough weight to give 1-2 weeks to get to the lifts you did today.

That looks pretty ok.

Try pulling the elbows tighter into your sides and pushing your head hard back inyonyhr bar.

Deadlift looks ok. Maybe raise your hips a fraction but even that might not be necessary. As long as you can stay tight and get good leg drive off the floor you’re good.

Elbows tighter and pushing head back on the squat?

Pull your elbows into your sides, it’ll tighten your upper back. Drive the head horizontally into the bar, which will push your chest up.
