The ascent looks good to me on the video. Bar goes almost only vertically and the back angle stays well put. The descent falls apart a bit in the end.
I actually thought the descent was better. What am I missing? Is it my upper back slightly rounding near the bottom you are referring to?The ascent looks good to me on the video. Bar goes almost only vertically and the back angle stays well put. The descent falls apart a bit in the end.
The bar path isn't as good on the descent. It moves forward in the end. Likely you ease up in the end by lowering your upper back instead of your hips.I actually thought the descent was better. What am I missing? Is it my upper back slightly rounding near the bottom you are referring to?
Now that I think about it, I am de-emphasizing the negative on the Anderson squat to mitigate fatigue/soreness. That is why I felt I had to perform regular (pause) squats after, to keep the ability to reverse the weight up. When comparing Anderson squats and pause squats, I must say, the pause squat is harder in the sense of a longer rep under tension, but easier to ascend from. If you descended correctly, you should be in an ight/ideal/tensed position to rise, and I still feel stretch, really regardless of the length of pause unless doing absurdly long ones (10 second plus). Both squats, for different purposes to reach the same goal. Getting stronger at Squat!
Wow, sorry to hear about the hand @Philippe GeoffrionUnfortunately, it re-opened mid press workout while I was spotting a lady on the bench press. It was a rather messy affair
Thanks @Kiacek. It's much better today. Changed bandages, re-wrapped and it's closing up well. I think my body has become adept at healing cuts! I know some too. She was actually very nice and cleaned up the driplets I left behind on my way to the Men's room! Then she asked me to record her bench set again afterwards while another fellow spotted.
I like to do floor press during certain phases because-1) it keeps me honest with the pause/no bounce/leg drive, 2) it can be done at home when I don't feel like driving to gym, 3) it is much kinder to my dear shoulders.Purely out of curiosity, why floor press rather than bench press?
I know you've done some bench press work in the past, just wondering why you pick one or the other between those two.
