Form check on 365 warmup. I think my butt may be rounding in or it’s my hoodie not sure

Deleted User 2018-02-16 21:36:39

@peytonT#2360 I didn’t see any butt wink

peytonT 2018-02-16 21:57:26

Thanks. Second opinions really help

peytonT 2018-02-16 22:09:05

Planned on competition pauses but feel like I rushed.. thoughts?

Tyler0317 2018-02-16 22:20:51

@peytonT#2360 Do you get leg drive with just your toes? I'll try that tomorrow to see how it feels.

I spread my legs wider, and keep my feet flat to the ground.

peytonT 2018-02-16 22:34:27

@Tyler0317 I have my legs like that because I find it lets me load my hamstrings the best and also makes it easier to me to breathe into my ribs on the descent

The constant tension I get from that lets me push through my hips for leg drive. Let’s me keep my butt on the bench easier and keep my upper back and lats tight

Nick-NJ 2018-02-16 23:13:00

Squats look just about perfect to me. Your bar path and depth look good. I honestly don't see any butt wink either.
Bench looked good as well. I prefer to plant my heels on the ground when I bench since it provides for a more stable trunk and better potential leg drive but if you like keeping your heels up and the federation you're lifting in allows it, keep it up. The only critique I can give on bench is that it looks like you loose a bit of tightness on your bench when you pause (it's not bad by any means though). @peytonT

Nick-NJ 2018-02-16 23:13:57

I like to implement 3 count pause reps or tempo bench after my main sets to address that

peytonT 2018-02-16 23:20:57

I see what you’re talking about on bench. My timing from leg drive to press was off a bit for the first two reps. I’ll have to pause my bar warmups to get timing down better

peytonT 2018-02-16 23:21:51

Since I’m peaking again I’m reintroducing pauses now because the reps are lower. I’ll have to practice it a bit more in warmups to make sure I’m ready for maxing

peytonT 2018-02-19 04:59:08

Deadlift. These felt good. This was my first and worst set

Deleted User 2018-02-19 14:03:33

@peytonT#2360 looks pretty sharp to me

peytonT 2018-02-19 20:10:50

Thanks. People tell me I drop my hips too low but I like my starting position

BigBadSaxon - ID 2018-02-19 20:49:01

Hips looks fine to me

Nick-NJ 2018-02-20 01:30:49

Hips look good but watch out for your knees. They are going soft at the lock out and even though it's super minimal, you might get red lighted at a meet depending on the judge

peytonT 2018-02-20 04:40:38

I don’t compete in the usapl

peytonT 2018-02-20 04:41:35

Uspa all day

Nick-NJ 2018-02-20 05:49:59

Uspa will still call you on that

peytonT 2018-02-20 14:49:20

Hasn’t happened yet but I’ll keep it in mind, I want to compete again in about 6 months

Suomi Stronk 2018-02-21 22:57:17


This was my third set of five here. I'm comfortable with my form before then, but what's your opinions on my form once I'm beginning to get tired?

BigBadSaxon - ID 2018-02-21 23:17:25

Good squats. Really try to push through your heels, they're coming up as you go down

Nick-NJ 2018-02-22 00:13:21

Yeah, might help if you used oly shoes, especially since I'm assuming you squat high bar

peytonT 2018-02-22 03:34:27

+1 on oly shoes. I use adipowers and squat high bar. They are fantastic and you can get them on sale ~$100 if you search

Suomi Stronk 2018-02-22 03:55:46

I normally squat only in socks. Forgot to here lol

peytonT 2018-02-22 04:21:45

I never understood the lift in socks meme

BigBadSaxon - ID 2018-02-22 04:42:12

I use the Reebok lifters and they were only like 90

BigBadSaxon - ID 2018-02-22 04:42:53

People lift in socks because you get more contact with the ground and don't have a soft shoe throwing off your balance/making your area you are pushing off smaller

Suomi Stronk 2018-02-22 04:50:34


Gaius Mucius Scaevola 2018-02-22 09:57:30

best angle for form videos for squats or bench press?

Nick-NJ 2018-02-22 17:36:18

Squat would probably be side, hip level angle. Bench would be directly in front and right above imo

Ben - OH 2019-01-04 17:15:56

@everyone How do I make a private YouTube channel for this? I thought I'd attach a video directly but Discord maxes out attachments at 8MB.

Matthias 2019-01-04 17:23:13

I think you would want to make a separate, anon google account and then when you upload, you have the option for public, private, and unlisted.

Will - MD 2019-01-04 20:50:23

@Ben - OH Is diesel so he must be doing something right.

Nick-NJ 2019-01-08 02:45:15

I can't view the video :(

Deleted User 2019-01-08 02:47:36

yeah, not opening on my phone either

Gerald Cunningham 2019-01-08 07:01:13


Deleted User 2019-01-08 07:14:08

You seem to want to move forward on recovery

Deleted User 2019-01-08 07:14:37

maybe having your front foot out more will help

Deleted User 2019-01-08 07:16:20

having a more aggressive stomp would help too

Gerald Cunningham 2019-01-08 07:16:46

That makes sense, I tend to lose the bar forward a lot.

Deleted User 2019-01-08 07:19:21

the side view at 3:28 is a great example

Deleted User 2019-01-08 07:19:48

even at maximal weight, he's aggressive and stable

Deleted User 2019-01-08 07:28:43

A good que might be to really try and refrain from any pressing of the weight and focus on driving with the dip and front rack and dropping under to catch

Deleted User 2019-01-08 07:29:14

would help with the dip and drive and catch/lockout at the same time

Gerald Cunningham 2019-01-08 07:30:50

Thank you so much @Deleted User ! Lot of good advice!

Ben - OH 2019-01-11 01:04:15

@Matthias sorry for the late response — is an anonymous google account with a private upload safe enough to show my face in? Or would I also need to conceal my face in any videos I upload?

Matthias 2019-01-11 01:37:38

I'd err on the safe side.
