Novice here so take what I say with a grain of salt, but shouldn't the upper back be more straight/flat than round?
I freakin laughed when I saw the slap. ROFL!!
It looked like a wide stance Romainian deadlift. But hey, if it works and you're not prone for injury using that method, go for it.
Holy old thread bump, but I'm kind of glad it was bumped because I use a similar form. Seems like it's ok as long as you don't feel like you're injuring yourself.
22 - 5'10@236lbs!
Bench - 325 (old)
Squat - 455x2 (old)
Deadlift - 500(old)
Total: 1280lbs 100% raw
The key to my exercise program is this one simple truth: I hate my body.
that slap was the best
ru sayin hmd??
he brought his back so that it was basically paralell to the ground
not great form, IMO
