The trade off for a stronger front squat is having perpetual front squat hickies on my collarbone.
195x5, 210x2, 220 fail. I felt 220 rolling off of me out of the hole and I had to let it go #jamesbay#frontsquats#gwpl#bossbarbellclub
Can't believe I did this (Did 15 Reps right before this and camera cut, so I had to do it again 😫😫). 20 Reps - 315 with NO Warm-Up on them after HEAVY A*% Front Squats. Form was a lot more crisp on the video not shown. Something you learn as a trainer is doing lifts with better form. Feet underneath shoulders, shin/shoulder alignment, lift through heals/hamstrings/glutes instead of lower back, don't slam or bounce weight, reset on every single rep which makes way more harder & effective, and know what you CAN & CAN'T do!!!! If you're not learning and continue doing exercises WRONG then expect injuries or chronic pain in the long run. I've dealt with this because of terrible coaches/trainers never changed my form and let me continue doing heavy weight with AVERAGE form. Video tape yourself and if you see corrections then back down the weight and get that form right! Now remember, don't be a keyboard warrior and try to critique other people and their videos. You never know what people are doing with their exercises, and what they're trying to accomplish. Sports are different then bodybuilding/powerlifting, and you have to factor in injuries as well. My form is NOT perfect mostly because I RARELY do these, but it's way better and less strenuous on all my body parts compared to the past when I've done them. BTW I haven't moved in 10 minutes after this 2nd set and still have to finish with cable exercises focusing on glute/hamstring activation 😑😑 #Learn#Learning#Knowledge#Trainer#PersonalTrainer#SportsPerformance#LowerBody#Core#Glutes#Hamstrings#Quads#LowerBack#FrontSquats#Cables#DoWork#HardWork#WorkHard#WorkoutPlans#NoExcuses#NoDaysOff#NeverSkipLegDay#TheFoundation#Fitness#Exercise#Rossercise
UPDATE: I’m still crap at front squats 😂
Program called for #165 sets of 3 on the SSB squats, but the gym didn’t have the Safety Squat Bar so I had to improvise. Luckily Tanner was there to show his spotting skills and save my life.
Oh and that squat was the highest thing I’ve ever seen in my life 🙃
C'est pas glamour, c'est pas du ménage, c'est pas propre propre; ça sent un peu la sueur, un peu le métal, pis un peu le sous-sol... mais ça fait du bien en chien!!! #frontsquats#press#bike#angermanagement
I'm really hoping that doing things I suck at will make me better down the road. Training started with front squats which I haven't done many of recently so don't have a good just of where my Max would be so I ended up under shooting my RPE for these doing 2 sets of 11 at 165 lbs then bumping up to 175 lbs for 11. The final set got close to an RPE 8 but I definitely have more room to add weight. Next I did some bench working up to a nice single at 335 lbs then dropping down to 250 lbs for 2x8. I finished up with an attempt at split squats. I decided to use dumbells so there would be less of a chance of me dying if lost balance rather than having a barbell on my back. I did 4 sets of 10 increasing the weight up to 55 lb dumbbells.
#LEGDAY definitely went down, the way my legs are setup now. I don’t wanna sit or stand for NOTHING,I signed up for @charterfitness for 2 reasons 1. They have the leg machines I ABSOLUTELY LOVE 2.It’s walking distance 🤘🏿🤘🏿🤘🏿🤘🏿💪🏿💪🏿 I get to use em and NOBODY is in my way. I definitely came to party and get the soreness from my session so now I’m going to get my last Client in then home for some more eats and relaxation #HackSquats#ReverseHackSquat#FrontSquats ouch😖😖😖💪🏿💪🏿💪🏿 #MyLegsWontStopShaking 😩😃😃 GOOD SHIT🤘🏿🤘🏿🤘🏿
7 sets of 5 at 157.5kg 5th set . 7 x 5 is by far the hardest day of smolov . It's the soul crusher because youve already done 2 days higher reps prior and the shear pressure to hold form after the first few sets is insane but I made it through all sets which is a massive volume pb. Just pointing out to anyone that follows me, I only use this mostly as my video log for my strength training so feel free to unfollow if that's not your thing, I'll take no offence as everyone has their own hobbies. And if anyone wonders why I roll my shorts up it's because I have big glutes and it stops your shorts ripping at the ass crack down at the base of the squat when they catch on your quads .
