I’m getting the sinking feeling that front squats have helped up to this point, but posterior chain work may be the new direction for me.
You should read some articles on elite. There’s an article called casual friday which talks about raw squatting if thats what you’re into.
There are countless other articles that will give you ideas to build your squat,bench, and pull. Maybe you have already read many, but go read them again.
I saw your video, and you will definitely raise your squat by adding in lots of work for your hamstrings, hips, glutes, and back. There are plenty of lifts you can do if you don’t have a ghr or rev hyper to get strong. Go read articles, check out their exercise index, and search the q&a. You should pick 3-4 assistance lifts and really work these hard after your main lift on your sq/dl days. Find which ones work for you.
You would also be wise to start box squatting. This will teach you quickly how to sit back, use a wider stance, train your hips, etc. You should also switch your pulling to squat days.
If you’re serious about getting strong, find a powerlifting crew to train with. You have a solid base, but all 3 of your lifts would improve a lot if you trained properly and improved your technique. [/quote]
Thank you, good advice here. I am reading everything I can get my hands on, and trying to filter it all out. There seem to be a few different schools of thought out there, so I’m taking it all in. I’ll spend some time at elitefts reading everything I can find.
I’m switching to a more traditional conjugated style of training after my deloading week (next week), and will choose more appropriate posterior chain assistance work. It has become very obvious that my posterior chain is the weak link right now, and I will spend a good deal of time working on improving that.
Until I hook up with a PL crew, I have to make due with what I have. I don’t have a box at my gym to squat on, and I think the benches are much too high. Anyone have thoughts on a modified box squat technique?
