Are you talking about Military Presses or Push Presses? I can only Push Press about 70% of my Bench Press 1RM, but then again my Push Press is pretty close to a strict Military Press with relatively little leg drive. Yes strict press, no leg drive. My push press actually exceeds my bench press. I a...

Kenny, Is there a relationship between the weight, sets and reps used for the good morning with respect to the same for your target deadlift weight? i.e. - your good mornings should be trained at X-lbs for A-reps and B-sets, where x=% of 1RM in your deadlift? Just curious if there is a correlation -...

Thanks all for the info and Kenny for elaborating on your article (good article). I am not looking to stop deadlifting, i am looking to improve it and therefore, looking for a new approach. Deads are a staple in my workout. I deadlift heavy (5x5) 1-2 times per week (altnerating with squats) as well ...

Need a new routine! I broke my barrel last night! Slipped out of my right hand, missed me from melon to flippers (phew!) and smashed itself into an unruly and non-sand-holding state.

I am thinking of working on my deadlift (just cuz) and considering programs for that right now.

A no deadlift, deadlifting routine?

I seem to recall someone mentioning a routine designed to improve your deadlift max, that is done without actually deadlifting. I believe it was mentioned here, but not sure?

If anyone recalls a similar post or better yet, the actual routine, please point me in the right direction.

Cheers!

I broke a sweat typing this response. I don't consider levels of "sweaty-ness" to be an indication of anything other than when and "when-not" my wife will go near me! I'm usually drenched doing my stretch/warm-up - snatches, cleans and presses with a broom stick. I've dropped 4 lbs in a single 20 mi...

Some good advice and info so far. Here are some practical ideas you might apply: 1) take a week or two off from the lifts in question – forget about them, do something else or just rest. This has worked for me more times than I can count. 2) In addition to Kenny’s suggestion – getting stronger – do ...

One of the dangers of internet advice is people are quick to offer it and quick to accept it.

No offense to anyone who responds to the original poster's question - but, Onlyethic - see your doctor and ask to see a specialist who can steer you to the right physio/exrx for your problem.

TimD's (Javorek's) comment on squat depth would be a good low-tech place to start. I've noted that some people lose their otherwise perfect form when they hit a certain depth - could be your problem. Can you post a vid of you squatting for us to critique your form? I have had experience with myself ...

Your form looks good. As for depth - you really need to determine the importance of that based on your goals. Once you go below parallel to the ass-cheeks to ankles depth, you are really depending on your hamstrings to pull you back out of the hole until you hit parallel again, then quads come back ...

Daniel, I loved MMA, still do. Miss it alot. Back in my day - 15 years ago - it was called "Freestyle fighting" or "Toughman". The training was brutal - drills/technique, sparring, strength/conditioning. My experience is that mma guys/gals are some of the most fit, well-condition athletes out there....

When i trained/competed in MMA, my coach/trainer told us to train barefoot "because you fight barefoot". Made sense so that's what we did. I still do that today and don't see any issue with it and haven't had any issue with it. In fact, the only time i wear shoes/boots is when i do my farmers/wheel-...
