How often do you stretch? You should really pick up a bar warmup routine and should be stretching after really well

that could also be from the disadvantage of high reps / low weight... the stabilizing muscles fatigue before the main ones (in this case lower back / core before quads)

or could be a warmup thing too, or finishing sets sloppy on last couple reps?

I don't warm up or stretch enough probably. I should do a brisk jog, and some foam rolling, with a good stretch at the end.

reps are still good at the end. I just think I'm not used to the high rep squats. Def the stabilizing ones hurting first. Just holding a barbell up for a while is a lot on the lower back.

foam rolling has been the single greatest addition to my exercise routines the last while. Everyone always recommended a light warmup on the treadmill for 5 minutes, but I never found any benefit. Foam rolling really loosens you up (after the immense pain)

when I started doing it, I read an article that I can't find at the moment.

But essentially the "cliffs" that I got from it were not to roll it quickly over the muscle, but to relax completely and try and put maximal bodyweight on the muscle group you are working on... and go pretty much as slow as possible. If it hurts really bad / feels tight, then you sit on that spot, maybe slowly moving an inch or so in either direction to try and work out the tightness. You'll know when its gone

There may be more efficient methods out there but this is my warmup:

You want all your weight to be on the muscle group, so get in whatever position allows you to do this (quads for example you get in a pushup position)

Quads (roll from groin down to knee cap, you'll feel your quads literally tighten up then release)
IT Bands... both sides (stack your legs on your side, roll from your hip down to your knee. This is excruciating, especially when first starting)
Calves (roll from ankle to knee)
Hamstrings (roll from knee to glutes)

If you want a nice feeling in your back, put the foam roller in between your shoulders blades (you are facing up obviously) and roll it left and right slowly.

That's all I do, maybe someone will see a flaw and help me too. I get really loosened up after

Edit: I don't have any set reps or # of rolls etc... I just go until I can tell I am loosened up and the pain has diminished, somedays its quick somedays it needs some work

Just to throw this out there for people who don't have a foam roll, or don't want to spend $30 on one. You can use PVC pipe. I use a 4" pipe, and it works great. You just have to make sure it is thin enough to squeeze with your hands, but not too thin that it cracks when you lay on it. I also use a car buffer on some of my problem areas. Works great.

Yeah, he also has Ulcerative Colitis which causes his stomach to swell. If you google him he competed in Worlds Strongest Man for a few years.

Uh, what? No.

UC will cause bloating during a flare up, but doesn't cause bloating all the time.

GH, on the other hand, which Clint is a known and vocal user of, does cause a bloated/distended midsection.

McDonald's also causes bloating, and Clint is a known user of that, as well.

It's more easy to kill with a sword than with a gun.

A sword is more frightening than toy-looking gun like glock.

robbing with a sword is a good thing

Not disagreeing with any of that, just saying it's not a gut solely from being a powerlifter. And he's pretty much always on a flare up lol. Guys always got something wrong, but he's a wealth of knowledge.
