I think dips are better than bench. But I suck at them.

I want to start doing power cleans. Dan Green swears by them. I don't have the slightest clue though.

gunna say other exercises carry over more to power cleans than power cleans carry over. by exercises i mean squats

go watch cal strength's videos on the clean. same concepts apply, just catch it higher. though I'd say learn to full clean because if you don't learn to get under the bar you might start to reverse curl it up. also once you learn to full clean power cleans come mad easy

I hate American weightlifters. They're so full of themselves when they're shit compared to lifters from other countries. Didn't post that cause myzo said something about them, just been thinking about it for a while.

I really want to get my squat form down. Knee hurts. Sucks.

First days at the gym in a long, long time..."strenuous" is a word that comes to mind.

Was just in Chicago for 5 nights, got picked up at the airport by a friend to go out in Seattle that night, and the next night. Pretty sure there's only been one day since the 22nd that I didn't drink. My body is broken. And I'm going to Whistler from Thurs-Sun. Ohgawdddd

Yea, go look up ChuanFu squats, it's what the Chinese do. It makes sense to bring your knees in a bit, because as you're coming down you're moving them out (they aren't fully out til the bottom) so you should bring them in on the way up at the same rate as they were going out on the descent. Plus you get more quad off the bottom, and I believe the outside of your hips (which are stretching as you're descending, so you release that energy by bringing your knees in slightly as you go up).

Obviously don't cave your knees, but don't try and keep them all the way out while going up. Let them track back at the same rate they were tracking on the descent.

Get dem glute muscles strong to keep your knees in line. Pushing your knees out is a temporary fix for the problem, strengthening the muscles that control your knees will make it so that you don't even have to think about them.

What tells you that the glutes control that?
