How much can change in a year ๐Ÿคท๐Ÿฝโ€โ™‚๏ธ well @ellliedwyerโ€™s squat technique has improved massively since she first started 12months ago and itโ€™s still getting better each training session from video 1 to 7 you can see we did a stage of front squats this was needed to improve Ellieโ€™s use of her knees in the squat, we are still nowhere near testing a max effort squat yet but we are now in a stage where we are building up the volume on her back squat before attempting a peak to see where all the training has gotten us we are very happy with the movement patterns and all fingers crossed we can show the effort in training has been worth it.
Reminder that Ellie is not a powerlifter or a strength athlete (yet anyway) she trains because she wants to and uses the training for self improvement not to win on the platform (although she is pretty competitive and one day probably will do some form of competition) .

6x5โ€™s today on squats - seeing as I had a day of no 1-2-1 coaching sessions I decided to get a few things done on my to do list like collect my atlas stones from @thecrossfitplace off my man @gaz_stalman, top up my tan, download some software to make editing videos easier, have a beer ๐Ÿบ and chill the fuck out!

Slingshot bench 8โ€™s @ 165kgs reduced pain in my hip meant I could put my feet flat and use leg drive, happy with how fast they moved too.

Block press 8โ€™s at 160kgs had to do it feet up as an issue with my hip is restrictive ๐Ÿคท๐Ÿผโ€โ™‚๏ธ the lack of leg drive upped the RPE. Only managed 2 sets after a busy day will catch up with deadโ€™s and squats tomorrow.

W1D1 of the new block. Easy squats last night. Even though they were easy there's always improvements to be made. One of the many benefits of training with the boys in @bangor_barbell_est2014 who noticed my valgus knee on the first set so we moved my stance in slightly and things just flew from there! ๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿ™Œ
Looking forward to where this squat goes over the next eight weeks!

If your practising squats that arenโ€™t to depth in training, your training to fail in competition.
Iโ€™m not saying i hit depth on every single rep but Iโ€™m working on it and I am aware of the importance of training to depth in training and the transfers to competition. If you quarter squat an new PR in training the chances you hit it in competition are reduced. .

Had a bit of a lesson yesterday off @sion_hughes in how to use wraps properly and how the wraps should be wrapped ๐Ÿ˜– ๐Ÿ‘ˆ๐ŸผDIS IS my face getting wrapped!
We gave both the @sbdapparel flexi wraps and the stiff wraps a lil spin and I will definitely be getting myself a pair of the flexi wraps (red ones) so I can get used to using them before moving to a stiffer wrap.
Using equipment like this isnโ€™t as simple as it looks and not all kit is created equally so my advice would be ask someone that knows what they are doing, yesterdayโ€™s session with sion has probably saved me a few months of struggling with a stiff wrap and given me the info needed to get started with making progress straight away.

My last year of doing deadlifts ๐Ÿ˜ซ this is probably every deadlift session I have done in the last 12 months, if you watch them you can see me hit PBs ๐Ÿ’ช๐Ÿฝ and see me fail ๐Ÿ™…๐Ÿฝโ€โ™‚๏ธ the best thing Iโ€™ve done for my deadlifts is not train my deadlifts lol I havenโ€™t done one since February 4th this year but I have done a lot of GPP work and I have focused my strength work on my squats and benchpressing!! Since October last year to yesterday I hit a 22.5kg PB ๐ŸŽ‰ and I give all the credit to front squats and the GPP work for the rest of my body making sure nothing is weak ๐Ÿ’ช๐Ÿผ looking forward to the rest of the summer of training @bangor_barbell_est2014
My favourite video is the first one an ego lift of 225kg with the (at the time) brand new strengthshop plates because @mlouevans said I couldnโ€™t do it!! #bangorsbestgym #bangorsstrongestgym #bangorbarbellclub #thepubgym

Well the test phases of the #hybridizestrength program are pretty much complete after testing with novice lifters and getting results we moved on to working with experienced lifters to see if we could get results even with lifters just like @rdr1980 and found after his 6 weeks on the program he hit some pretty impressive PBโ€™s especially on the squat 227.5kg - 500lbs (7.5kg PB in 6 weeks) and hopefully in the next 3 weeks show a PB in his benchpress!
