1st post since i joined in July.
In regards to Squatting this is about.
I was stuck on 140 for 4 for 2 weeks, however some actual Powerlifter gave me some tips in the gym and every time i failed he did his set and "asked" me to do another.. i got up to 160 for 1 VERY shaky one.
Haven't seen him since that night which is rather disappointing so i'm back here.
Up to 165 for 1 but i can feel myself start to go forward how do i combat this ?
I'm doing One Lift a Day pretty much
Monday - Military Press
Tuesday - Squat
Wednesday - Bench
Thursday - Squat
Friday - Off
Saturday - Deadlift with hands in between legs
I was doing 5*5 the guy who was nice enough to let me Squat with him said try for a PR for 1, then next time try for 3 reps then do 3 sets of 3 next time then go up, once i stalled on jumping every session.
The guy who i Squatted with also had me slow down on the descent, i was "dive bombing" into it, and while i apparently have great hip mobility i didn't need to go as low as i was. Also brought my hands way in they are now very near my shoulders - my back hurts day after from holding it so tight. But why am i falling over ... i mean the weight should be forcing me back ?
In regards to Deadlifting i'm not finished advancing yet, question there is should i alternate the inside leg with outside leg variants.. inside leg seems alot more natural.
In regards to Benching, i don't know if im as tight as i need to be, still feel awkward doing bench holding weight above my head feels weird. Any good other videos on how to get very tight?
Military Press is "ok'ish" not moving fast or slow just grinding out reps as i go. Nothing much to ask in this regard just keep going.
Once the lifts start slowing way down, i'll move to 5/3/1 as i did purchase it so better make use of it.
