Re: To go deep or not to go

John, when I was trying to incorporate front squats (I'm not at the moment) I started adding them to my squat warm-up, and gradually increased how much weight I'd use. So, I'd alternate sets of FS and BS with light weights. Or I'd add in a few sets of FS on my "light" squat day. Unlike wolf, I hate...

Re: 2011: Deadlifts, Grip and Presses Log Comments

Please elaborate on your trade off / allowance for sub optimal form. How far do you take it? Feel free to discuss other exercises with regards to this topic as well. I'll hang up and take your answer off the air. With heavy weight your form will never be spot on perfect. LOL...this is "heavy" weigh...

Re: 2011: Deadlifts, Grip and Presses Log Comments

^^^ Yes they are like walkouts. I intend on doing them. But, in order of importance right now, I have: 1. Work in the 27-315 range week in and week out = Own the daylights out of 315 2. Work on quality for this weight range 3. Beat 315 I am still many steps away. But yes, these static holds can be r...

Re: To go deep or not to go

Well, if you wanted to add them in now, you would have to put some things on the back burner and focus on them to get better at them. But it can be done - at any time you want. You just have to be open to learning something new and for that to happen you need to love what you're doing. This is how I...

Re: To go deep or not to go

Well, I love Front Squats and that is why I want to get strong on them. I don't care at all about getting bigger quads or glutes or whatever else. I do love the feeling of 300+ pounds sitting on my clavicle. It isn't pain because I associate pain with something negative. Nobody is forcing me to lift...

wolf check out that target muscle.
I don't do Front Squats to target any muscle though. I'm not sure what I am supposed to be looking for. It's the same exercise done with a cross grip.

Re: 2011: Deadlifts, Grip and Presses Log Comments

That is a good front squat, and you can see some good back development you have... Try and get your back tighter and your chest up more on the FS. You are falling forward (I have the same problem), and I don't think it is because of weakness. I think your technique is doing it to you. You are stron...

Re: To go deep or not to go

Wolf deep is almost ass to heals. Thats what I do with weight most people that I see at the gym not even go 90 degrees with. On front squats isn't that neglecting your hamstrings a bit and putting a lot more strain on the quads? What do you do for your hamstring and glute development? Front Squats ...
