Please critique squat form! Desperate? Jiaxie97 47 4 minutesJiaxie97 (4): Okay I see. By the way, I think one reason why my form breaks down so badly is I don't have a rack to which I can set the weight down if I fail. I focus more on the fear of dropping the weight rather than the form. How can I fix this?

Starting Stronglifts!! - log DLift49 51 8 hoursDLift49 (73): @haole, I'm started with Stronglifts like my log title says, but found the overal volume to low. I saw good results in @Sharkoon1 log, and switched to ICF. Like the program so far, but got stuck on 67,5 kg on bench. Thats why I lowered the weight. Chinups I did 3x7 because thats my maximum so far with bodyweight. I'm trying to get this up to 3x 8 and the next goal is with a weight attached

Lets lose the PHAT - Log SnackIt 52 13 hoursSnackIt (70): @FiremanSi I find it little strange that I'm not hungry on 2100 calories, but my maintenance is not high, and I'm not an active person, on rest day I'm just relaxing, usually don't do a shit, i get hungry before bed sometimes on training days.

Cutting Macros kozzletoff 9 17 hoursFiremanSi (38386): @kozzletoff Many reasons. Primarily because their still growing. Loads of test flowing around the body and its a time u should be taking advantage of that high test and not cutting cause u want shredz or some bullshit. You should be building big muscle. under the age of 21 most people only start lifting and its in the first 12-18 of training where they have the unique window to burn fat and build muscle at the same time and unless ur obese it's...

Macros - Eating out kozzletoff 8 2 daysTamere02 (1249): rarely eat out at restaurants but when I go on nights out and now I will either eat out before or after a drinking+ clubbing session I just leave around 1200-1500 kcals and make sure to hit my fibre target for the day. I'm sure I haven't reached my kcal target doing this but whats one day not hitting the right amount in a week?
Train to maintain...anyone? haole 8 2 daysBeans (1918): Seems like you would just need to keep doing the same thing over and over again in the gym and eat enough to maintain your weight. Simple enough. I'd stay away from heavy weights like you are already doing, and avoid any movements that have a tenancy to wear down joints.
Road to Mt Olympus a year long journey ZeusAmmon 74 2 daysZeusAmmon (79): I can definitely feel my body getting fatigued, and now I better understand the need for periodization. In the past when I was fatigued or completing workouts took more effort I would shrug it off and just try to go harder. I am looking forward to giving my body a bit of rest over the next 2 weeks as we deload. It amazes me that I have been missing out on so much by being stubborn lol. Glad to be working smarter, then harder ^_^ Declinebench:...

longer limbs and pulling advantages thephenomenon 6 3 daysRand (2719): @thephenomenon yes ben rice is a great example of this, HUGE deadlift, 750 in competition, with pedestrian (relative to his Deadlift and squat) bench. He says because of his long arms which give him a advantage to deadlift disadvantage to bench.
