How WELL do you maintain technique when you hit the sticking point of a lift? Here's a great example of WHAT TO DO by 2x Olympian @bernybernardin squatting 220kg-484lbs at 69kg-152lbs bodyweight (Video by @hookgrip) ✅ . One of the take-aways from this lift is how controlling the descent can lead to a stable ascent. The faster you descend, the harder it can be to maintain balance & technique on the way back up ❌This is why dive-bombing into the bottom of a squat often leads to knee collapse & back rounding. Always control the descent ✅ . Remember, it doesn't matter how MUCH you lift, it matters how MUCH you lift WELL! Keep this mindset every time you touch the barbell & good things will happen! 🏋🏽🔥 ___________________________________ Squat University is the ultimate guide to realizing the strength to which the body is capable of.

Ideally the knee should track in the exact same position during the entire squat. Here's a great example of an athlete @max_lang_weightlifting with optimal knee stability (squatting 170kg - 374lbs for 10 reps). The knees of some athletes waver slightly (often moving inward toward the toes) on the ascent of the squat, or even worse cave-in completely (called a valgus collapse). The longer an athlete has been lifting with this type of poor movement - the harder it is to break the habit. If they move this way for too long - it becomes a crutch and they unfortunately need to move that way in order to keep lifting as much weight. While a slight knee waver isn’t a horrible technique error it is NOT optimal from a mechanical standpoint. This means improved knee control (less side to side movement) will give you the potential to lift more weight. The knees were designed to bend and straighten - any Lateral movement during the squat is only wasted energy that could be used to drive more weight up! Lifting heavy weights poorly will make you stronger. However, it will make you stronger in the WRONG WAY by reinforcing poor technique. In the end - moving big weight poorly will lead to pain. It's time to teach our athletes that it doesn’t matter how MUCH they can squat, if they can’t squat WELL. While technique perfection is something most of us will never achieve, we should always strive to attain it. __________________________________ Squat University is the ultimate guide to realizing the strength to which the body is capable of.

Our Lad of the week award goes to 35 - year - old Leo Houlding, who has become the first person to solo climb Jordan's iconic 350-metre high Pillar of Wisdom. The giant sandstone tower in Wadi Rum, also known as the Valley of the Moon, is larger than the Eiffel Tower and rises out of the Jordanian desert like nothing you've seen before. Leo, from Cumbria, England, said it was one of the biggest challenges of his life and his life was in danger from about 25 metres up onwards. Leo carried out the ascent as part of 'Conquer the Uncharted', a new series launched by PlayStation to mark the critically acclaimed action adventure game, 'Uncharted 4: A Thief's End'.
