Squat, Bench, Deadlift, Snatch, C&J: Post your best videos

We work hard to develop our lifts. We seek critiques, and we study online to learn more -- to get stronger and more efficient on our lifts. We follow other great lifters on IG or YouTube and analyze their video. In the scheme of things, we realize what we do in the weight room doesn't change the world, but it does change us.

Show your best lifts, because on no other website will any one else give a care, and certainly not your friends on Facebook.

Let's talk shop.

    What happened to your bench since then?

    This was my best dead weight (200lbs). Low for a lot of folks, but I was happy!

    I did x3, but only recorded 1.


    You broke the 4th Wall! Nice lift. Garage basement? I like the homemade squat rack in the background.

    Mostly race season. Didn't lift much last summer/fall while I was racing, and have been slow getting back into lifting this off season (for a variety of reasons).

    Wish I had video of some of my heavy singles.

    Your squat looks good. Reason for the trap bar over barbell deadlifts?

    Oh that's right. I've read that elsewhere on the boards on the racing you are into.

    My bench is sucky right now too - but that's because I'm working through some shoulder tendentious.

    Yep, I built a squat/bench rack, and made the deadlift risers out of plywood. All my weights are kijiji special, so they're max 25lbs. Takes forever to load/unload them, but they were cheap!

    No real reason for trap over barbell...that was just what I had done that day. Right now I'm doing 5/3/1 BBB and when I do my 5x10 sets I use the trap bar instead of the regular just because I don't tear up my shins as bad. I like the variety. I'm doing my heavy deads tomorrow so maybe I'll go ahead and record it. Shooting for 330x7...or maybe I'll just try and work up to a 1RM instead.

    I dig it. I have a gym in my garage that while its -40 below I am not using. Can't wait for the weather to warm up. This summer I plan to build strongman equipment and I have a prowler that I am building.

    Ah, that makes sense. I am running 531 with BBB (12 week challenge) currently now, or will after my last meet in February when I can finally finish the last training block. Using the trap bar is a good idea, my next block of 5x10 deadlifts has me volume sets of 330 lbs. Might have to try the trap bar.

    Good luck on the volume set tomorrow!

    Not pretty? I love how easy you make that look.

    PSH! Only the lock out. My 4th attempt got stuck just below the knees.

    Just some light technique work from yesterday, snatches from the hang.
