  • For those who lift more weight than I

    These videos show me performing 4 lifts:
    squats-191lbs
    Bench presses-121lbs
    barbell rows-121lbs
    deadlifts-226lbs


    I would like those of you who lift considerably more than I to critique my form. If you aint lifting heavier, and without injury, please refrain from posting.

    Nice depth in your squat and good hip drive.
    Bench press looked nice and tight.
    It is not easy but there is a bit of hip bounce in your barbell rows if you can minimize that it would be better.
    I am sure you can see for yourself your 1st and last reps on your deadlift were not as good as the middle reps.
    Eating primal is not a diet, it is a way of life.
    PS
    Don't forget to play!

      Keep your gaze neutral or downwards on the squat. Don't look up.

      Other than that really good form!

        In regards to the row, could bodyweight be a factor? I weigh 140 pounds. Do you think perhaps it could simply be an issue of balance?

          Slow down on the movement, especially the eccentric (lowering), and your hip bounce will go away. Plus, your back will get much bigger much faster if you up the TUT a bit.

          There might be a balance issue as well, but that will come with time. I weigh 205'ish and can row 300 (once) and I don't bounce like that.
          People too weak to follow their own dreams will always try to discourage others.

            dito...same for bench too.
            Would I be putting a grain-feed cow on a fad diet if I took it out of the feedlot and put it on pasture eating the grass nature intended?

              Slight tempo issue pertaining to Bench, it seems like the weight is falling to your chest and then slowly coming back up (rather than a slow controlled decent). Icarian already addressed the rowing issue. And Chronyx addressed the squat gaze....

                Thanks for posting.

                I have a general question about the deadlifts. Do you guys think he is controlling the weight on the way down? It seem to be hitting pretty hard. I try to have a much smoother, slower trip on the way down as the weight lightly taps the ground. Is this wrong? I just try to get a good pull in the legs both on the way up and the way down. Thanks.

                  During the barbell rows your neck was flexing toward the top of the movement, pulling your head and neck forward and down instead of keeping them inline.
