increase your deadlift, by NOT deadlifting so much. I wish it wasn't so, but its true

I have been considering doing this for a while, I'll move this higher on the priority list.

If you are worrying about your form you may have to scale back your training and better develop it.

Stats:BW: approx 184lbs, height 6', Age: 34. I just posted my routine (5/3/1), see previous post. There is a meet in February that I would like to try and make.

Goals: Lifting heavier weights. I feel like my form has improved a lot, and weights have increased due to that. but I know there is a lot room for improvement. I would like to get to 300+ bench, 500+ DL, 400+ Squat. I don't care how long it takes. My bench needs the most improvement, followed closely by squat. my deadlift form only seems to break when going for new 1RM PR's.

This is true. The fastest my deadlfit went up was with an 4 week focus on good mornings, box squats and front squats.

The same for me. More deadlifts just kill my back.

I'm also thinking of competing in powerlifting down here in California. I'll post some of my lifts of what I remember and I too will try to post some videos. I got some older ones from the beginning of summer

Sorry to respond so late.

For Bench Press form Watch this:



For Squats:
All I can say for squatting is feel comfortable with heavy weight on your back, don't look in mirrors they only screw you up, feel the weight and learn your body. Keep those toes pointed out, and don't let those knees buckle.



For Deadlift form read this :

Going Deeper into the Deadlift with Mark Rippetoe, Part 1

Going Deeper into the Deadlift with Mark Rippetoe, Part 2


Basically my advice is stick with wendler for a few cycles until you feel strong enough to test out new maxes.

BBG, is that you in the vid?

If it is, I'm not neccessarily knockin your setup. You've got the arch and you've done it enough times to know your foot and back position. That setup works for.

But for a beginner, I don't know as though that is a really good "instructional video".

It's a bit different for us USAPL guys that have to have ass on the bench and feet flat on the floor. Finding your foot position before you grab your arch is almost neccessary.

I can't really tell what your (again, assuming that is you in the vid) procedure is. It's like you get your foot position based on where your back is on the bench when you "overshoot" under the bar, but then, after you get your arch, you move your feet, and I can notice a slight loss in your arch.

Again, it's not wrong for you because you know your body and know your set up, but to me, it doesn't look like there's anything repetitive and/or procedural about your setup.

Do you maybe want to explain something that's not seen in the video?

Well, I did my first Powerlifting meet yesterday. I had a blast, and learned a lot!

I missed several lifts because I was not paying attention to the commands. It was very frustrating, but I did manage to get a total of 1053! I missed my 3rd attempt squat at 375 (another lesson learned, I tried to beat a 2 week old PR by 10 pounds!).

It was a lot of fun, and I got to see a lot of very strong lifters.

There were lots of USAPL Records broken yesterday, those were very exciting to watch.

Just wanted to thank you guys for encouraging me to take the plunge.
