I want to start squating but don’t really know the different types of squats and the form and techniques. Does anyone know of a video link that shows technique and form?
Also, I have a question. I’ve only been lifting for about two months. My current routine is a HIIT program by Waterbury, but my question is concerning bench presses. My beginning bench weight started at 65 lbs for 3 sets of 5 reps and has slowly increased to 110 lbs 4 sets of 5 reps, 125 lbs 4 sets of 5 reps.
I have been using a regular weight bar. I bought an Olympic bar with two 45 lbs plates to use for my deadlifts, but since I’ve run out of regular weights and my bench can increase I put the Olympic bar on the bench. So today the weight was two 45 lbs plates plus the '7 bar. I think this totals 135 lbs.
It seems to me the lifting of this weight was so much easier than the 125 lbs of the regular bar. Does the Olympic bar make lifting easier. I felt i was almost at max weight with the regular bar, but with the Olympic bar i think I could easily add another 30-40 lbs to my heavy sets, maybe more.
I appreciate your feedback.
