great help solly.

When he says "pull your hips back" (which would help) that also means that your weight will have to be on your heels... so when you are setting up and feeling the tension in your hamstrings (I've never heard it described like that but its bang on, if you take too long it actually starts to burn) make sure you are sitting back on your heels and the bar is still touching your shins.

rippetoe says to line up with the bar cutting your feet roughly in half when you look down. when you squat down into position, the bar should touch your shins. this means your scalpula is directly overhead, and you won't have to compensate at all by bringing the bar into or away from your body (you can't do the lift if the bar is not eventually perpendicular to your scalpula).

I guarantee you will shoot up in weight if you practice, 275 will feel like nothing.

I think you're right too, with slowing down. Compare it with golf. When I rush I lose my form. When I rush in this I'll lose the form.

Will do.

I do have to say though, the video is a bit deceiving. I do have a lot of weight on my heels. Can't see it in this video but occasionally my toes raise off the ground slightly. Regardless, some work needed. I've always had a bit of a rounded lower back, hell, even when arched, but I'll throw another video in with light weight to keep the form all the way through. Also, earlier in my sets this time too.

The hamstring tension was something I brought up during level 1 training this past weekend and the trainers loved it.

Also, just to elaborate on the half foot point, which I'm sure you know already, when dabears says cut the foot in half he means the entire foot. Not just the part in front of he ankle. For me this is usually over my laces.

100x better man. I'm actually very impressed at the quick corrections you made. It's like night and day. Just be careful to make sure your hips aren't rising too early. Some reps it seems like they are slightly but. Maybe it's the angle but the bar looks a little out in front a little. Looks better than my form man. Seems I'm a better coach than athlete haha.

Haha. Thanks. I literally sat there going over each movement in my head before hand. As we know form is more important than packing on the weight and as much as I want 400, 500, 1000 I'd much rather have the right form rather than look like a dumb ass in the gym. Haha

My less than ideal form got me to 280, then I started tweaking my lower back. Went down in went, did exactly what you are doing, and shot right back up with proper form. It's worth it

Re: MpoweredM: Just another progress thread...

Watch the video around the halfway mark, I love that this is in slow motion.

The bar should be tight against your shins, but there is a gap. You can literally see in slow motion the bar pulling towards you before it lifts off the ground. It's all good at a manageable weight but when the bar gets heavy you won't be able to lift it when you could if your shins were tighter to the bar (and therefore entire body in line)

My two cents.

Here is my first set. I only did two. This is regular speed. I think my (first video) was better than this (my first set). Figured I would post though anyways since it's not slow mo.
Added some awesome music too. Haha

For why? I have a pretty strong back. Also, oddly, today seemed like I had extra energy in the gym. Haha

So a press? lol

Did you bend at the knee and use momentum to get the weight up. If so it's a push press. If you bent and pushed yourself under the bar then it's a jerk. Hopefully I don't sound like a jerk. I'm just trying to figure out the movement.

Push press then. Humped and pulled the bar to "front squat" positioning. Then pressed up.

Sorry I never learn names. Haha

Sounds like a hang clean and press then.

Was it this? The "hump" makes me think this is what you mean.
