Generally, any lifting program with progressive overload will produce hypertrophy in some manner. It is impossible to state whether or not this (or any exercise) will produce hypertrophy without effort and progression details. I recommend you read the "Types Of Muscle Hypertrophy" and "Training Variables And Muscle Hypertrophy" of the ...

There's a lot to get into here, but it's super interesting, and I'm in the mood for it. Why it's a hassle to calculate How can we evaluate the force F? I've seen people using the previous equation in case of a squat by replacing F with their bodyweigth plus the barbell weigth, both multiplied by g = 9.81 m/s. This will be terribly inaccurate for a few ...

I see also that the legs do not seem to boost the lift, as Oleksiy Torokhtiy keeps his feet entirely on the floor. If by "boost", you mean that the legs are used explosively to pull the bar as high as possible, then this can still be done with the feet flat on the ground, and this is the aim of the first part of this movement. In a complete snatch,...

Do you have very tight chest and lat muscles? These are the 2 main internal rotators of your shoulder. You can try stretching those while strengthening your external rotators. I’m guessing what the image meant by internal rotation is referring to an anterior tilt of the scapula. Engaging lower traps may be difficult if there is a lack of strength to combat ...

Great seeing this discussion! I have also recently learned about this. We don’t need no extreme shoulder blade retractions. Common cue of depressing the scapula may also lead to neck pain as it lengthens the upper traps and shorten the levator scap.

Fixed repetitions, no rest. Which means you can only progress by making the repetitions slower or by increasing weight. If any kind of progressive overload is happening you will build muscle regardless of the method used. As for this method particularly, there are some studies suggesting supersets in with antagonistic muscles can help you increase strength ...

Neutral position. Your scapula and GH joint is responsible to bring your arms upwards. If you keep it retracted, your shoulder blades can’t rotate upwards. Upward rotation performed by upper traps, serratus anterior and lower traps. This force couple is important. You don’t have to depress your shoulder blades. Depressing it may lead to pain in your ...

I believe it is designed this way to challenge the glutes more intensively as the lever arm is longer. Barbell above mid foot is giving us the most efficient bar path during a squat but that does not mean all exercises need to be carried out in that manner. You can do a squat while holding a dumbbell with your arms outstretch. This introduces a different ...
