That got me fired up.
with the viking training, maybe we need #SackandPillage to go with #RollTad
All I know is that this needs to be one of the Big Heads in the student section this year:
Did they take the video down? I don't see it.
They must have, its not there anymore for me either
I just looked at it. It's there for me.
Yep it is back up now.
That is some of the worst lifting form I've ever seen.
Where? The tire flips? The squats and presses looked good to me.
Whoever the freshman was doing chest presses was doing something wrong. Back should not be lifted like that off the bench
Here we go again
****ing vikings? :lol:
No one in that video does anything approximating a full squat. Half the guys are doing like 1/4 squats or something. Some of the pressing looked like the strained novice at the gym that somehow throws his back out trying to bench too much. I'm not even sure what Spencer is doing in half of the video.
Goes to show you that proper lifting technique is not necessary to be all conference in basketball.
Damn shame that we're paying a strength and conditioning coach if all he is going to do is teach these players how to lift improperly. Maybe someday we'll be able to hire somebody who knows how to lift properly. Until then, we'll just have to deal with our guys getting bigger, stronger, and faster I guess. :rolling_eyes:
Well judging by how Spencer, Josh, XT and XJ have all changed their bodies they must be doing something right...
How on Earth could you even judge how low those guys were going in that video? Either you have superpowers or I missed the portion of the video that showed their legs during the squats.
Here we go with the leaps of logic. Here is but one example of what I am talking about.
Does this mean our S&C staff sucks? No. Did I say that? No. Does it mean that every guy on the team has poor form on every lift? No, and I didn't say that either. Sorry to point out a fact that you don't like.
@Goose - The bar will drop as far down as you are squatting. When the bar drops six inches, I'm gonna go ahead and guess it wasn't close to a full squat. There are reasons to not always do full squats, maybe they were in play here, maybe not.
The positive: XJ looks like a beast in this video.
You're supposed to arch your back you dumbass.
Even if you subscribe to that method of pressing, it doesn't involve moving one's lower back during the lift. It recommends pushing your shoulder blades into the bench while maintaining a slight arch in the lower back. Now you won't get hurt the next time you try benching the bar three times. You're welcome for the advice.
Do you even lift bro?
They are doing quasquats. That's a quarter squat. It builds up your toe muscles.
Shut up AZ. I want to get more lifting tips from Flounder. The kid is ripped. He must have been lifting for weeks now.
Do you even think bro? Rhetorical question.
Ummm yeah...ummm no.
How much does a fleshlight weight?
With or without batteries?
pre or post workout?
