I just watched the vids Anuj and man on man! You're doing awesome...300lbs, thats huge! I can't comment on the box squat form because I've never done them before. Looked pretty good to me.

Keep it up,

Beginning Thoughts:
I have this huge exam tomorrow and a presentation on Thursday and then another big exam on Friday...Damnit....
Workout and Videos:
Started the workout with Military Press. I was supposed to do 3x3 so I took 145 lbs which used to be my old max for 3x3...well, this was 145x3:

As you can see...this was pretty smooth. So I decided to take 150. Yes, I did knock out 3x3 with 150 lbs I am thrilled!!!

I would try stand furthur in front of the box and sit back on it, should be able to get more out of your hammys that way.I bet you could handle EVEN more weight on them cos that looked fairly easy for you.

Anyone feel free to tell me I'm talking out my ass but thats how it looked to me.
ssup hopper

I see what you mean. I'll try to do that next time....I don't sit back all that much because:
1.) I don't know how to sit back any more than what I do normally (normally does not mean this video)
2.) I don't know how it benefits a RAW lifter like me. Most westsiders and the powerlifters out there use this "sit back" step because they train themselves to lift in gear. I don't know how to apply that to someone like me who isnt trying for a meet...I'm going to try out box squats again and we'll see from there.

Thanks for dropping by Hopper.....I am going to need to modify my form a little bit.

Hey wolf

I didnt neccessarily mean sitting back as far as say a westside type powerlifting box squat, just meant more shoving your ass back first and then shoving your knees out after.I think it would help you use your PC more and your big squat would be even bigger!! So would your deadlift.

Either way 300 of a box for reps is fucking stout great effort.

HIThopper's Sig:There are no shortcuts. The fact that a shortcut is important to you means that you are a pussy. Let me be clear here: if you'd rather take steroids than do your squats heavy and drink enough milk, then you are a Fucking Pussy. I have no time or patience for Fucking Pussies. Please tell everyone you know that I said this.- Mark Rippetoe

Anuj, you usually free squat a lot lower, don't you?

It doesn't really have anything to do with gear. It just helps you activate your glutes/hammies into your squat more..

Quote:
The last reason to box squat is to reinforce good squat technique. Many times for the intermediate or beginning squatter, the hamstrings aren't yet developed and "sitting back" into a squat is impossible without falling over backward. To teach these athletes how to free squat properly would take months. The squat wouldn't look right until the hamstrings and glute strength increases. Why wait two or three months? Put them on the box and you'll have them squatting properly within five minutes. Within one month the hamstrings will begin to kick in because of the added stress of sitting back on the box.

Beginning Thoughts:
So much for eating good food haha....I had this huge pizza yesterday and I feel so bloated today lol....My presentation today went off really well....I hate public speaking but I nailed it today

I remember last week on my lower 2 workout I had a lot of constructive criticisms regarding my form, etc so this week I tried my best to bring my A-Game I hope my form was better today.
Workout and Videos:
Post mobility drills and warm-ups, I hit Front Squats. I repeated 165 lbs for sets of 6 reps because my form has been so off last week with the weight slipping down my shoulders and my lower back rounding, etc...So check these vids out:
http://s81.photobucket.com/albums/j2...urrent=FS1.flv
http://s81.photobucket.com/albums/j2...urrent=FS2.flv

Next came Rack Deadlifts. 295 for sets of 6 again. I know I increased the weight from last week but I was confident today.
http://s81.photobucket.com/albums/j2...urrent=RD1.flv
http://s81.photobucket.com/albums/j2...urrent=RD2.flv

I then moved onto some Bulgarian Squats and some Pull Throughs and Reverse Crunches. Last week I had not locked out on my pull throughs correctly. So I made some changes this week (I also just carried over the weight).
http://s81.photobucket.com/albums/j2...urrent=PT1.flv
http://s81.photobucket.com/albums/j2...urrent=PT2.flv
Overall Impression:
Next week will be Phase 2....I am pretty curious where this will take me. On a good note: I am finally liking front squats.

1 more day for the weekend, people
