    I always go squat, push, pull in that order. If I am omitting one of the 3 movements, I still follow that order. It's worked well. I don't think...

    Keep going on squat, keep putting on bodyweight. I bet you have at least another 50 lbs before having to switch programming. You're just a little...

    Poor angle aside, how did you set up the video to track the bar path? Can see it being useful in self analysis.

    It doesn't look like you're setting your back on DL. Also, that doesn't look like a hook grip. You may need to use the hook grip or an over/under.

    Immediately thought of upright kneeling. Won't work if you're pressing Chase weights but feels more useful than seated. Probably less safe if it gets...

    I think your perceived muscle imbalance will iron itself out by adding 5 lbs a workout to the lifts in the program. Unless you are consistently...

    I think you need to set your back. That's the biggest issue here. On the reps you appear to be setting it, it ends up folding like a lawn chair. Take...

    JJ23 replied to a thread Squat form check in Technique
    You're letting your knees too far forward / hips not back. This is why the bar position is still resulting in a squat lacking hip drive.

    Periodization was heavily talked about when I was getting a USA track and field coaching certification for throws maybe 10 years ago. We read Bompa's...
