View Full Version : Squat and Deadlift Critique

01-21-2007, 10:20 AM
Well we can all critique well but how about critiquing ourselfs? how does this look, just 225 x 3 on full squat (my hams are on my calfs trust me lol), 315 x 2 daedlift and 405 x 2 but it cut out the second rep, deadlifts were overhand grip.

i fly back kind of hard on the deadlifts but i was aiming for speed, i dont do that with 500 lol, at least that fast.

squats look good stump! DL looks good too but try and keep your head up. i noticed u look down as you go down. I hurt my neck doing that before.

I think you are flying on those 2nd & 3rd squat reps too...
I know you are young and it was amazing in your 225x49 vid.. but I think if I bounced that fast in my ATFs, my knees would explode.. I know there are some OL coaches who say the bounce isn't bad.. but to do it every set & rep, I'm not convinced.

I'm also not staying to pause or anything at the bottom with heavy weight.. or to go extremely slow.. but I would slow down just a bit.

I think your first rep was good.. controlled on the way down.. explode out of the hole.

sounds good bob will do, actually the first rep i got kinda messed up and hadda reset, ive gone just about this deep for 405 x 5 so i may be able to hit my 475 parallel goal for the meet.

Form looks perfect on both. Except again, look up on the deads.

Other then that. Great job. I need to work on my squat form :(

I agree. Next to deads and bench.......squats are king to building muscle, strength and raw power.

I know the weight you're using is light for you so that may be the issue, but considering you were specifically THINKING about form execution, I would say speed control would be important. A nice, slow controlled down, preping muscles for an explosive yet controlled up. I realize powerlifting is going to be a little bit more "whatever it takes to get it up" mentality compared to bodybuilding, but that's what I noticed. Back looks great in both exercises, great control. One other thing I noticed was the extreme lean back on deads lockout, looked a bit awkward, but not injury provoking. Keep it up big guy, everything looking damn good.

Good work man! You are unbelievably strong. Keep at it and I'm sure you'll be very competitive in powerlifting.

i may be able to hit my 475 parallel goal for the meet.

That's gotta be a record of some sort...
