Sometimes I get the "iron-stupid". My Bench Press has been going really well lately and my squat is lacking a bit. I seen this quote, "To press a lot, you must press a lot." -Boris Sheiko. That said, no wonder my Bench is going well. I press twice a week. I have never tried this with Squats or Deadlifts. Duh! Twice a week it is. For Squats anyway.
My Squats are feeling better but I'm still trying to feel comfortable with my form. The best squat I've ever had was at the 2016 IPF World Powerlifting Championships. My third attempt was 240kg and I totally smoked it. Both side judges gave me red lights. I have watched this video at lease a hundred times and the judges got the call wrong. It was a completely legal lift.
Now that I've vented It's time to post today's lifts.
I read a FB post from a friend of mine reference head position when deadlifting. He states that keeping your head back produces a correct body position and a faster pull. Something to try. All reps I focused on keeping my head pulled back.
I haven't done many Squats lately. First there was an issue with my adductor then my right knee has been causing me concern lately. Today I wanted to work on sitting more upright and keeping my stance a little more narrow. Mission accomplished in all cases.
Deadlifts lately have been not as strong as I would like. A few months ago I pulled 250kg and haven't since. Every time I miss a heavy single pull I punish myself with heavy reps. Last time 515lbs slipped out of my hands I pulled 425lbs for 6 reps. Today was sorta the same.
Today I started training with lots of mobility and stretching. My right knee is really bothering me. Not while squatting but while flexed. The more I bend it the more it hurts. There is no way I could stretch my right quad. It really hurt to bend it that much. Squats felt really good with none of the previous adductor problems that I had.
A problem I've experience many times in the past is an adductor magnus groin pull. It doesn't feel like a traditional groin injury but after extensive research I found that they all fall under the same description. Previously all the issues I've had were on the left side. This time it's the same but on the right side. The following picture shows where the problem is.
I did get some Squats in before I had to call it quits.
