Universal Topics / Re: Super slow reps: what does BIS think?
« on: August 20, 2014, 12:52:58 PM »
To explain further.

Squat: I had the issue that with speed I do not fully manage to fire my glutes, my hips do not travel backwards into a good sitting position, and I glide forward with my knees. Slowing down the squat helped me move myself into a better position. Glutes started firing properly, a good sit-back and knees stay above my feet.

Bench: Since I have shitty scapulas, it takes a very heavy toll on my upper back keeping tight during slow descent. Helped greatly during regular benching. It is still a long way to go and lots of work to do in that area though.

Deadlift: Hips would shoot up to fast, could not fire my hams/glutes properly and the bar would travel forward. A few weeks of slow deadlifts for warm-ups and semi-slow regular ones got me working correctly again.

All the slow variations completely forced me to do stuff properly, or the exercise would fail most likely. Slow deadlifting with high hips and your lower back? Would kill me at least.

Input from a lifter using slow squats: it helps me working and nailing my technique. I have to work twice as hard to maintain proper form. And it has helped me build strength in my weakness out of the hole.

What's on your mind? / Re: Decent (powerlifting) gyms Scandinavia
« on: August 06, 2014, 12:09:05 PM »
In Stockholm you will have a variety of powerlifting clubs at your disposal. STK (aka Sundbybergs Tyngdlyftningsklubb / Sunbybergs weightliftingclub) would be my recommendation. Many of swedens finest powerlifters train at the place. It's big enough, with lots of weights, barbells, machines and lifters.

There is also SAK (Stockholms atletklubb / Stockholms athleteclub), a nice little place in the basement of an apartment complex, many weightlifters there though, few powerlifters. Only the most necessary things.

Lastly, you do have SATS in Stockholm, a fitness chain, however with the recent trend in sweden with fitness, SATS in Stockholm is actually housing a lot of good equipment and spacing. A few of our own wayward members lift there occasionally.

EDIT: All places are quite within the central area of Stockholm. I know that there are even more lifting clubs around the place, but I do not know their names in particular.

Hi, stupid question but I just want to clarify 100%

'Deadlift from Boxes'

Does it mean the bar, or the lifter is raised?

I understand you should alter the programs to suit your needs though.

Thanks!

The bar is raised.

Deficit deadlift = lifter is raised.

Tried out some new squatting techniques today. Many cues to remember but it felt more solid. A few hickups there and there with the behind rising too quick.
Played around with my new benchblokz today and went off-chart. Felt really good to hit those numbers!

Ate like shit today, but everything went okay anyway. MY back is kinda sore after all the chin-ups. It was mostly for testing the old chin strength and it was better than I thought. First set was 8 @ 7-8 and the rest were between 3-5 reps. Alternated grip and width.

Been thinking about running belt on all work sets.

Just for clarification, because I am stupid.

1 + 1/2 (x2) Deadlift

You start at the ground, lift to lockout, lower back to knees, then you lockout again and finally lower back to the ground. This is one rep correct?

1(x2) + 1/2 (x2) Deadlift, alternating

You do one regular deadlift, then you do one of the above (ground-lockout-knees-lockout-ground), then one regular, then one fo the special kind?

What does the (x2) mean?

Deadlift felt a bit better today, not quite where I want to be. But the pulling is improving a slight bit. The problem lies with the stomach again, felt stressed and it acted up leading to poor ab-pressure and backrounding on a few pulls. It got better by the box-deadlifts. But all in all it doesn't look that terrible?

Bench was nothing special. Still working on a solid technique and a good set-up. Left knee is acting up a bit too.

Universal Topics / Re: Rest's between sets
« on: July 07, 2014, 11:23:53 PM »
But sometimes the feelings do not correspond to reality or directing us to the desired goal ...for this reason I think that the recovery should be managed with precision

I suppose I am too low level still to understand the value of it. I recover pretty quickly still, but this might be something I will have to consider more properly within the future.

But as said, most of the time I hit 2-5min of rest. Previously, only last year, I did record the time perfectly on the mobile during lifting and only had bad experiences with forcing sets too quickly. Perhaps I should try increasing the rest intervals by the set, or would people still recommend keeping a strict time for that entire work set session? (For example 5x3x85% RM with 3 min strict rest throughout the sets?)

Relativly easy session today, the benchpress felt very good. Even the incline despite the video!
Squatting felt mehish, I forgot my kneesleeves today and my knees told me all about it. I didn't dare push my behind too much backwards today because I did not want the back to get cramped up again, but I will continue working on that slowly.

Competitions / Re: Swedish raw nationals live
« on: July 07, 2014, 10:58:30 PM »
Thank for lists.
Tyrwing, is it true that all RAW lifters take part at Equip competition?

Do you mean if their RAW lifts get ranked in the equipped series as well? Then yes. Do they all lift with equipment? No.

Many swedish lifters go full RAW since it has exploded over here. We have many good RAW lifters that do not equip, and many good equiped ones that do not compete RAW anymore.

Bad technique can also create sticking points. Can't you post videos of your lifts here? That make things a bit easier I think.


As the last line of the post said, lift-movies are all in my log. :)

But I will post it here as well for you convenience
