First I want to apologize for my bad camera angle. This was my fifth set of a close grip with 185lbs (PR).All week I’ve been setting PR’s wrapping up POWERSHREDZ VL2. Weighing in still at 177lbs and feeling great! Also I’m really happy(but not satisfied)with where my form on all three of my main lifts has gotten to at this point. Looking to finish the program and the week strong!! .

--- Squatting Basics ---
⏺️Can you spot your squat here?
⏺️Everyone squats slightly differently due to many reasons such as the length of your leg and the type of hip socket you inherited.
⏺️However, other influences on squatting technique include, tightness in your hips and ankles, groin muscles, upper back, a lack of strength or poor motor control. ++ Some Basics ++
⏺️Check your squat to see if your heels come up off the floor when you are in the lower phase. They shouldn't.
⏺️Check your knees - do they waiver or bow inwards when you squat? They shouldn't.
⏺️ Does your torso hinge right over at your waist as you descend? It shouldn't.
⏺️All of these common faults need to be addressed and fixed or they will lead to increased dysfunction and to potential injury down the line.
One of the members I met at the gym. Been knowing this O.G. when I first started out here at In-Shape. Just because your not fit doesn’t mean I won’t f*ck with you. Since I also work at the gym I’ve gotten close to a handful of members. The stories I hear and inspiration stories specially coming from my old folks are amazing. Specially a lot that’s coming back from injuries and surgeries. Worked on some chest today. Used the cable machine and did some seated cable flys followed by decline pushups to failure. 7 sets total. Great chest up pump today. Happy humpday frenz and fam!

The Theory ➡ Lift a heavy weight first then perform a lighter weight after ✅ This is a strategy used to increase performance by improving better muscle function 💪 Lifting the heavier weight first will force your body to produce a high degree of force 💯 Once you drop the weight back down your body remains accustomed to producing the same level of force that was utilised to lift the heavier weight 🚀 Therefore moving the lighter weight with a higher degree of force will increase your performance potential 🏆
