How to fix your pinch sensation when you squat

Tue, 08/14/2018 - 06:51 -- admin
squat_university- Do you have anterior hip pain that limits your ability to squat to full depth? Often the go-to fix many show is a banded joint mobilization to address the mobility of the joint itself by stretching the hip capsule (a stiff glove-like covering around the joint). This can be a great help for many who have hip impingements – however sometimes there is another problem creating the problem! . This pain can also come out when the muscles of the lateral hip (like the glute medius and portions of the glute max) aren’t working correctly. .

From 52lbs to 52k.

mbibbs163- “She’s in between worlds right now. And a part of her is leaving. But it’s not like before. She’s taking up space this time...” From 52lbs to 52k. Today’s top singles were all about 90% for me at Squat: 193lb Deadlift: 258.5lbs Bench: 104.5lbs (went for 121 on third attempt which would have been a 5lb PR and my left elbow flared/failed it)

Jen Thompson- 310lbs never felt so smooth and easy!

jenthompson132- 310lbs never felt so smooth and easy. Sound On: to hear how my team sets me up for this lift. I usually crop this out, but I thought it would be good to reflect on as well. I give myself a yell for motivation. I set up the same way everytime. The most important thing for me, is to set my shoulders firmly into the bench. Then I hear all my key words to remind me what I need to do to execute this lift. Can't wait to get to @usapowerlifting bench nats. Sept 14th. On track for 320lbs.... powerlifting

Dr. Stefanie Cohen, DPT- Are you folding over in the squat?

Sun, 08/12/2018 - 08:25 -- admin
By Dr. Stefanie Cohen, DPT- THE STRIPPER SQUAT: how quadriceps or hamstring dominance affects your movement Folding over in the squat is a common technical error I see often. Essentially the lifter goes down to the bottom of the squat with good form, but then during the concentric or upward portion, their chest collapses down, and the hips shoot up. .

Andrew Herbert- Pulling 387.5kg/854lbs for a single

herbietheluvbug- Last heavy #deadlift #workout before the meet. Worked up to a top single with 387.5kg/854lbs. It moved well and I was tempted to go heavier but I decided to play it a bit safer and leave some in the tank. I’d like to think this is indicative of me maturing as a powerlifter. After this I did high deficit deadlifts #beltless and worked up to 310kg/683lbs for five. powerlifting video #2 Last heavy #squat before the meet. 435kg/959lbs for a #PR single. Good session with the #squad @bossbarbellclub . @dangreenpowerlifter with the coaching, wrapping, spotting.

Rest in Peace Brad Madvig.

By Monica Augustine When your circle is microscopically small, losing one of your real friends, hits all the harder. Today I learned my "Powerlifting Husband" (A term of endearment coined by his wife Amy Madvig in relief that he had someone to talk all things powerlifting to besides Jim Cahill) that Brad Madvig made his transition. Brad endured well over 100 brain surgeries in the past couple years as his condition progressed, a condition fitting of Brad, so rare that only 200 documented cases worldwide have ever existed.

Good and Bad days
