It's a start.

good hip structure for aesthetics

2018-10-11 04:05:44 UTC  

Really? Well thanks man! Always kinda thought my hips were too wide. It's a nice confidence boost

2018-10-11 04:17:41 UTC  

from that pic your ratio looks good bruh, *my* hip structure is too wide

2018-10-11 04:28:14 UTC  

At least wider hip structure is good for strength

2018-10-11 04:47:51 UTC  

yeah I've always suspected it would give more stability if anything?

2018-10-11 07:11:09 UTC  

Stability and larger lever means more force

2018-10-12 00:57:28 UTC  

Narrow hips are good for running but bigger hips are good for power like lifting/football

2018-10-12 02:07:27 UTC  

Hips are the single most important thing in BJJ and I think grappling in general

2018-10-12 05:01:50 UTC  

Hip position is also important in Wresting too, particularly if you’re on the top position.

2018-10-12 05:15:52 UTC  

I can attest

The abs need just as much work as the clutter in the garage

Strong build. What’s your height?

2018-10-19 13:14:24 UTC  

5'9, definitely manlet territory lol

2018-10-19 13:19:25 UTC  

Manlet nationalism!

2018-10-19 16:07:54 UTC  

I would argue that that is outside of manlet territory, @Suomi Stronk

2018-10-19 16:08:23 UTC  

It's on the edge but yeah

2018-10-19 16:09:56 UTC  

5'9 is king of manlets territory

2018-10-19 16:51:21 UTC  

>implying the shorter you are the lower the power level in manlet nationalism

2018-10-19 16:58:46 UTC  

You're all manlets.

2018-10-19 16:59:22 UTC  

But together, manlets, strong

2018-10-19 17:16:47 UTC  

You're just an ape

Let's fight his ankles, boys

2018-10-19 17:29:07 UTC  

are those ankle biters at it again?

2018-10-19 17:40:05 UTC  

Yeah but our centre of gravity is way lower, have fun grappling lanklets

2018-10-19 17:41:59 UTC  

I'll take the challenge

@Nick-NJ Pretty impressive man. Gotta say though, from a personal standpoint I like to see a lower sinking of the hips on the descent and using more of your glutes/quads/hammies to bring the weight up instead of my lower lumbar. But I also have a fucked up back, so take my critique with a grain of salt.

2018-10-19 23:26:10 UTC  

Rpe 10 sets won't look pretty. I did this after 4 sets of squats and 3 sets ascending deadlifts, so fatigue was definitely there. But I've always found that my deadlift was a lot stronger when I kept my hips high and loaded my glutes and back with the weight.
A lot of it has to do with proportions. An individual with long femurs and a short torso is going to have a more verticle back while an individual with short femurs and a long torso is going to benefit from being more upright.
Just gotta find what works for you.
