Do you know if they Benched every day or?

Congratz with the result and the lifts!
I've heard that some of them used to bench shirted 14 sessions a week

A 32.5kg PR is amazing man! Congrats

Its just thicker and stiffer... I don't know why that makes it so I can pull less, because I don't lose grip on it but it forces me into bad position... maybe it is just nerves because I only ever have this issue when I'm pretty excited on a big pull at a big meet

I wouldn't say it was weak grip.  I pulled 265 without chalk on a smooth bar during the training cycle, but pulling on Eleiko bars really challenges me.  Needless to say this will be another year where deadlift is my main priority

It has been a while... my current schedule and injuries prevented me from training with a high volume approach this past season.  Still managed a total PR at nationals though.  Am thinking maybe I should re-evaluate my overall training ideology

Here is my training cycle's main equipped lifts.  It was close to the most total reps and volume I have done in my gear, but overall the lifts are way down because (due to the injuries) I did almost zero raw work

Then here is nationals

thanks mate. this was my first time using wraps and really hope it gets better, it was pathetic as hell. Maybe with wraps i should utilize knee traveling more.
I ended up on the floor my first time ever using wraps.  They just take practice like everything else :)

Thanks guys. 

Galactus first comment: I don't mind bouncy squats for raw, but I am an equipped lifter and my stance is just too narrow.  As for the theory of leg weakness, the major issue with that is I squat probably 40kg more than my best conventional deadlift.  I do not see how that is possible with a strong back. 

Dingle first comment:  While I hate front squats, the muscle I am focusing on currently is indeed the quadriceps.  I have done only posterior chain assistance for the last half decade so they probably need a little love

Robert:  Do you see the same issue while in a suit?  One annoyance I'm having is that the issues I have with each do not seem very reflected in the other

Galactus 2nd comment:  Wraps can't explain the squat/dl differential given that I am not wearing wraps with the indicated number.  In wraps the differential is 275 versus 250.  I usually don't report that because its not a competition move and I only do it when too lazy to put my suit on.  I don't disagree with the quad context though.  I have been working in the recent past (since all of these videos) to correct this a little and to increase quad activation.

Can add lower back to list of quasi-injuries.  2015 has been brutal so far. 

Sumo and a conventional variation on Monday
200 or more for 40 working reps.
Felt fine during workout, hurt bad about 5 hours later.

Hopefully taking it easy this week will put me ready to go next week

Today i blev my Titan F6 Size 40. Fuck.
Time to get super katana?

It's also telling that my deadlift is probably my weakest lift.
You and me both man.  Squat 260 versus pull 250.  Add equipment its 330 versus 262.5

I can understand both sides.  On one hand, my back angle becomes pretty big out of the hole meaning it works more.  On the other hand, this could be from my legs extending faster from being stronger.  I think relying too much on bounce is the problem.  Not to say bouncing and speed are bad, but I feel as though I do not use any muscle until the 2nd half of the concentric

It is interesting that you say weak back. Sheiko said weak legs when he saw my squat :D . I am doing conventional also anyways to build back. Even if I have a weak something I don't think making the other part stronger is automatically bad. I am thinking a nice slow low intensity cycle while just focusing on aligning raw kinematics with the equipped should help.... Just gotta take it very slow for my hips to adjust

I do not know if this is a good example, but I assume he means this.  Terminal knee extension

After nationals this year I plan to re-work my squat technique.  My raw squat is very narrow, relies a lot on bounce and excessive forward knee travel.  I do not think it is very well-connected to my equipped squat.  I am going to start light and slow working on moving stance out some, keeping knee travel to be less, and using more muscle/less bounce.  I've made a short list of secondary moves (Pause on pins, pause at bottom, pause half way up, slow squats) but am wondering if anyone has any others that they think might be good in this situation?  I want to improve raw squat, but all changes are made so that raw leads to a good equipped

Also, does anyone have any experience with the deadlifts that a lot of Northern Euros are doing lately, pausing a few CM off of the floor?  I know the pause at knee but am interested in this one

like really tight sleeves? was it the preserved heat, the compression or both?
Mild compression from medium tightness knee sleeves really helps my knees out a lot.  I almost never have pain but when I do it is a clicking sensation from quad tightness.  Sleeves or light wraps solve it for me
