I think this is the right thread to post some footage of my training today.

so after layoff due to surgery i would like to give sumo deadlifting a shot. here are my first trys (with cheesy music :D )



the point i see is that i should  try to open my hips more and maybe get a bit lower with my hips. i hope someone can help me =)

You seem to already have figured out the most crucial flaws, the starting position seem very restricted by your hip mobility and glute activation. From a side view you can see that your shoulders are in front of the bar. A rule of thumb is to have your shoulders directly over the bar when engaging the pull, from there you should have a good starting position hipwise aswell. The PUL itself is rally good and controlled! :)

Holy shit, Alex, so cool to see you posting here. I'm (one of) the weirdos who likes all your videos on youtube!

I would love to hear more about your training methods. Do you keep a training log anywhere online? Would you be willing to keep one on this website. I find it interesting that you seem to use so many variations.

I'm very flattered to hear that, thank you very much!

I do keep a training log however it is in swedish, and I do not write more than my last set of each excersise and a RPE estimation and some general comments. I simply have it so that my coach easily can adjust my further training. My trainer Hurril from this forum, have methods similar to thus of Sheiko, however influenced by many other succesfull methods, with an wide range of modern excersise aswell.

All excersises are choosen due to some sort of technique flaw or weakness.

Would appreciate form critique on these squats with pause , first time doing them.

I tend to have a forward lean and use a lot of low back out the hole , its the way I've always squatted.

I'm not sure what the right word is but those squats look a bit "snappy" to me. I try to do everything nice and smoothly.

Form analysis isn't really my strong point. But I do know that if you had 300kg loaded onto the bar like that you'd be at a high risk of injury with snappy movements. How to stop it? Just make a conscious effort to not to do it. Otherwise depth is okay but your hips shoot up a little fast. That probably means your legs could use a little more strength as you're getting leg extension out of the way before transferring the load to your back. So if it were me I'd use the high bar squat instead of the pause since your bar path looks ok.

Thanks , I was meant to pause on way down according to the program and not do a regular squat , I tried high bar before and my forward lean got worse but it is something I will work on.

Gotcha on pauses in the program. Front squats would be better for the forward lean but they are already in the program. How about switching the pause to the way up then instead of the high bar.

That's a good idea ! I will do this next session and put a video up.

I agree with the risk.  I haven't done this particular movement but watching it was a bit scary

Agree lol , I'd never heard of it before I started the 4day program so I was pretty much going into the unknown.
