    Do you guys have your back rounded when you start lifting the bar off the ground?

    It's so hard to keep my back arch. SO I'm guessing it's okay to bend your knees a little now

    keeping your knees absolutely straight with no bend is a VERY BAD idea

    Ceaze, these are a good lower-back exercise right? God my S&C is an idiot. He always is telling us to not bend our knees at all. I'd love if you could set him straight on lifts. He believes using back on deadlifts is completely bad

    Well your so-called "coach" is a complete fucking moron.

    How the hell would you do deadlifts without using your back?

    I have my back forward some in deadlifts, and he's like your going to hurt your back. A really strong kid on my team basically squats on deadlift. Back is completely vertical and he squats it up.

    O what else... Our powercleaning sucks nuts. I'm thinking of just dropping the weight so I can go all the way down and squat the weight up. I want to get more explosive power.

    O yea, and we rarely do any shoulder pressing work. The only day is on Wednesday where we dumbell press on one of those rubber balls. Screw that shit, I do seated dumbell presses twice a week now. Edit: We do Cleans, then we squat it, then we press it 4x5 on wednesday

    And we burn out on tris and bis/ shoulders at least once a week, usually twice. We do 11ty billion 10 pound shoulder side raise and plate steering wheels (lock plate out straight and rotate it).

    Finally, we never do weighted abs and the only thing we do do is a medicine ball situp toss with a partner for 25 reps. We always burn out on abs with 11ty billion reps

    Edit: Whey protein is not needed. Creatine still may be bad for you.

    Is this for a sport or just a weight training/PE class?
