    Realised I can't squat for shit without a belt on today

    Was warming up with 3 plates. I usually use a belt past 2 plates but was feeling kinda lazy to put it on and 3 plates is fucking easy anyway so I said fuck it

    And it felt weird af. Not as in I couldn't lift the weight but I was struggling to keep my core tight

    Then I put 4 plates on, put my belt on and squatted normally, no problems there. Actually felt pretty good so I even did 4 plates and a quarter after my regular 3 working sets

    Not good mayne gotta work my lower back more

    Regular deadlifts are out of the question due to prior lower back issues but I did do some weighted hypers and RDLs up to 2 plates at the very end of the session, gonna start doing them every week now maybe it'll help me squat more too

    why does every bodybuilder supposedly have a fucked up back and can't squat/deadlift or both?

    Almost everybody who s actually lifted seriously for a while has had some sort of injury at some point in time, that's just part of the game

    yeah but I bounce back quickly and never had major injuries

    there's pro lifters who don't get major injuries it's usually something minor like muscle strains small tweaks etc.

    think it's cause bodybuilders use bad form(not all) and lots of isolation movements

    There s two type of injuries:

    -injuries due to bad form/using too much weight, ego lifting etc. Think Poniboi for example

    -wear and tear injuries. From doing too many exercises, sets too often etc without letting the muscle/tendons recover before you hammer it again. These type of injuries can happen anytime you don't need to go heavy at all. Matter fact most of the time they happen during warm up sets

    Purely for ego tbh

    I wanna remind these wannabe powerlifters in my gym who s the boss around here

    Back in the day I used to walk in and throw 3 plates on the bench and do 10 straight reps like nothing while they struggled to do 2-3 reps with 275-295lbs. Hell I even threw 4 fucking plates on and pressed that shit

    Wanna do the same with squats now lol. I ve only beem doing them for a little over a month now but I believe I ll get up to 5 plates soon enough

    Imagine lifting for years with the goal to get stronger while some roidcel comes in and outlifts you in like 2-3 months

    your not even in your mid 30's

    wear and tear isn't really a thing up until that age unless your doing retarded high volume isolation movements

    lots of people who don't lift in my family are getting hip/knee replacements but they're retirement age

    suppose I'll need a new hip at 50 from squatting 3x a week

    I do/did retardedly high volume

    Take a look at my old training logs from 16-17

    Everybody thought I was trolling cause I would do like 10 sets of bench almost daily

    yep I knew it

    you don't get injured from moderate volume compound movements with good form

    unless your taking an AI which will give you glass joints if you take too much(most do)

    Why do you keep saying compound movents as if they were somehow risk free?

    No if anything there s where people get injured the most. Ever heard lf anybody who got injured doing leg curls or reverse pec deck? Me neither, it's always some shit like bench press or deadlifts

    All my injuries were wear and tear related

    I’ve said I made a mistake lifting too heavy a weight but my form is good when I squat and deadlift.



    So yeah, @BANEnentik my injuries werent ego related unlike you.

    Steroid drug addiction makes them injury prone

    We ve seen your squat videos dude get the fuck out of here with that my form is good bullshit

    That 405 had you pushing your hips back and leaning forward like crazy. That's what happens when your legs aren't strong enough and you have to compensate by using your lower back

    My form wasn?t bad.
    Obviously if I?m squatting with several years of not doing the lift max rep attempt at 405 won?t look easy.


    Genetikk used a belt and had his spotter carry him in the lift and he did less than half the reps.

    1- excessive forward lean is not considered "good form" under any circumstances
    2 - you used a belt too in your video
    3 - you only got one more rep
