i just don't feel strong with it, like it doesn't lock
and slips out when i go heavier

Ah yeah, get some chalk it’s cheap. If gym doesn’t allow powder then use liquid
home gym 👌
It’s game changer
I’m transitioning to more oly lifts. Anyone have experience competing in Olympic weightlifting?
I compete with the barbell every time I snatch.
I've no experience with competition but I'm somewhat competent with the lifts
My sister competes in Olympic weightlifting
We train together often
I don't have experience competing but I'd definitely say finding a coach is a requirement
My friend is a competitive one but he’s not /our guy/ yet
I want to clean 140kilo
When you lift at a crossfit gym and it's the open.
Got to lift outside as if I'm the idiot.
@Fox yeah CrossFit boxes aren't very accommodating to people not doing their particular course. I have one right next door but they only have 1 hour 2x a day of "open gym" so instead I travel 30 min each way to get to a good barbell gym.
True. I love being apart of the box. I catch a lot of shit for not CrossFiting but I am also know everyone and make great friends doing so.
That first post-conference workout is painful. No more off days!
Haha, if/when we get an IE compound I assume there will be tons of squat racks
All members must preform back squats before continuing with any other exercise.
405 back squat mandatory
All reps are to he counted as "One, Mr. Rippetoe. Two, Mr. Rippetoe."
The dudes in the back talking about my lift as I’m doing it threw me off some. I think I had three more
Dude do you have any knee pain? Looked like they were going way past your toes.
going past your toes ain't the problem, its putting all the pressure through them that is. One can lead to the other tho
Or so I think
My knees feel great tbh. I run all the time too. I normally wear knee sleeves but forgot them back in my dorm in Texas. I’ve always done high bar pause squats like that and no pain. I’m routinely over 2-2.5x bodyweight no issues
Also I’m in weightlifting shoes that have a .75” heel so my ankle flexion angle is probably comparable to those in flat shoes who don’t go over toes
I’ll draw up some fbd of it tomorrow to see what’s good and use my measurements just cause
as long as heels dont come up, going past your toes is A okay
I’ve started taking more rest days. My sleep quality has improved and my bulk is finally working
Rest and recovery is super important fam
Nice dude. That is when your muscles grow!
Hit my first 60kg snatch today it felt amazing
