thanks for the link. Good read.
I watched a bunch of vids and most people on heavy pulls, even guys like coan Cressey etc, seem to get tilted forward till they are over the bar, and the article seems to support this
kind of bothersome that the post isn't by Rip himself though. And I sometimes find rips stuff questionable ,related to the squat.. but this seems legit
I'm wondering now- it seems like my shoulders are over the bar, the bar travels up and in and stays pretty close
so really, the only way to stop the lumbar rounding, if that is the position where I am mechnically strongest, is to put the bar further out front or decrease my distance to the ground?
It seems to me the only ways to do that without the lumbar rounding would be improve leg strength/sink the hips lower, take off the shoes, and round the upper back as much as I can
what do you think?
either way I now know for the future, I don't want to waste any energy extending against the ground. I want to be in that position before I pull because that's where I am strongest.
I am reading the westside articles on the DL. I'm actuall gonna email rip as well...
