Just did my fourth ever meet yesterday, went 452/248/507 for a 1207 total (PR's on squat and deadlift).
However, I could have done a lot better, as I was thiiiis close to getting a 480 squat and 524 deadlift. On both of those lifts, I got stuck at a sticking point which has been bothering me for a while.
On the squat, I got stuck about 2/3 of the way up, and my chest fell just a bit forward and I stalled. I was great out of the hole, but just slowed down. I've been thinking heavy good mornings, along with more ab and low back work will help this.
On the deadlift, I got stuck about an inch below the knees, and I've had many deadlifts get stuck there recently. I know that if I can get it past my knees, I can lock it out just fine. I just suck at the bottom of the lift. I think adding deficit deadlifts will help me in this area Also, I plan on adding speed work for both lifts (and my bench as well).
Tl;dr: I'm looking for assistance lift advice for my chest falling forward on the squat, and my deadlift getting stuck about an inch below my knees. I plan on adding heavy good mornings, ab work, low back work, deficit deadlifts, and speed work to combat these problems.
I will post videos of the lifts later so you guys can see exactly what the problem is. Thanks in advance.
