Eye of Sheiko / Re: Squat-form critique - Short video 2x130kg lowbar squat.

Hi, and thanks for commenting.

I don't "lose" tightness(that I notice atleast).
I do however go a fair bit "too low" which i mentioned in my original post, which in turn cause "butt wink". I don't think butt wink in itself is dangerous or anything, but it isn't very efficient when it comes to lifting more weight either.

I always do paused squats, bench and deadlifts. I feel that it helps me during my 1RM's atleast confidence-wise. I also feel that it helps my form doing it this way(except for the depth). If this is the "correct" way of doing things or not, I'm not sure but I really improved my strength in the bottom of the lift this way.

I do find that having a strict focus on technique and weakpoints helps quite a lot. In that sense I really recommend videoing yourself :)

I posted a squat-vid in the "Eye of Sheiko" section here.
Will possibly add a bench-form-vid in there aswell later today.

Hi there.

I'm currently on the Intermediate (Small Load) Comp. Cycle, using the App.
I've been using the spreadsheet form-sheiko-examples earlier and have also tried to perform the various movements during my training as if it were in a competition. I'm also trying my best to keep decent form at all times. Although I know I probably have heaps of flaws and errors still.

So, I present to you a poorly filmed squat-shoot from todays workout. Please ignore the annoying music in the background.

2x130kg lowbar-squat. My bodyweight is around 72kg at the moment (if that matters). I do know I go far beyond the point I "need" to go to get a "comp. accepted lift". I will try to make adjustments so I'll be able to go only to the required depth.

Any constructive critizism would be most welcome.

I have video-taped myself lifting before. Mostly to be able to see the most obvious mistakes I do without realizing it (I'm sure I still have lots of little weird bad habits in my lifts).
It's been a while since I did that, so I might have to make some new ones.
Will post on the boards when i get around to doing so.

Thanks for your reply RussanBear.

I already do as I said in my initial post, do pullups\pulldowns for lats and upper-back machine-exercises\facepulls each session. (as well as some shoulder-excersies etc.)
Mostly as you say to prevent injury and to balance out from all the benching.

The sheiko-programs are definetly the best routines I've tried even though they are very demanding.

I guess I'll just keep doing what I'm doing and hopefully I'll be able to push past the "sticky-point" regarding the weight in the DL's.

Hi there.
I'm a recreational lifter.
Started doing the Sheiko #-programs (29,37,32) 1 year ago and have been running them progressively for a while. Now using the Sheiko-IOS-App.

My maxes are now: @72kg Bodyweight
- 165kg Low-bar squat
- 185kg Conventional deadlift
- 140kg Bench Press.

I focus highly on technique (trying to lift according to comp.rules regarding depth in squats, stopped bottom bench etc) and constantly try to improve my weaknesses.(I'm sure I have many of them that I don't even know about).

Over to the point of this post.
I'm currently on the "Intermediate Small Load Comp. Cycle." And I feel that I'm having a hard time not falling behind in the deadlifts.. I've never been all that great at them to begin with, but recently they seem to just get heavier and heavier. The bench and squats (which I favor) are going fine so far.

- What can I do to increase my DL's without having to sacrifice my bench or squats?
- In the program i'm on now in some workouts it says things like "chest muscles".. What am I supposed to do here? Just pick any chest-muscle excersise I want and go with it?
- Is there a "need" to add upperback, lat-excersises etc. to the routines? I have been doing so to sort of balance things out as I feel they are a bit left out (even though I know the compound-movements ofcourse include them).

Hoping to increase my maxes even more over the next 6 months and HOPEFULLY try out in a local powerlifting-event.
