While training west-side at a private gym with pro-total lifters, I was consistently chastised for that fact that "I'm a giant slow-twitch muscle", due to my propensity to badly "hitch" after the bar cleared my knees on a max effort deadlift. On squat, I had problems going "ass back without lowering chest" and consistently failing out of the hole due to trying to switch the movement to my quads. (I get crushed by 70% of the weight I was easily getting in briefs, in other words, I'm finding out my nearly 500 squat in briefs has translated to a 320 raw squat.
While I've since left there and am training on my own now, I'd like to pick back up with the assessment that my glutes are pitifully weak.
I was advised to read and memorize Bret Contreas's glute building manual.
Anyone see pretty good increases in their squat and deadlift from building up to sizeable heavy glute bridges?
