176 x 1 looked excellent, man. depth way better than i've seen from you before. not commenting on RDL's except to say that something looks off but i don't want to say what in case i'm giving you bad advice.  :-X

i'll leave it for lance or adarq.

Thanks man , loved that 176 single too as i said.

Ok , shutting down the training vids and questions here, moving them to the Q&A thread.

This thread will be again only for jumping/dunking videos & stills. That is if i ever manage to dunk again anyway...  ;D
woot

Why don't you do any hip thrusts?

Hey Vag, with regards to your RDL (in my uneducated opinion) it looks like you need more stiffness in your upper back (tuck your shoulder blades in your back pocket- to quote Tony Gentilcore) and to push back more with your hips to get more tension on the hams and glutes so more weight on your heels.  I recently changed the way I do these and have felt a huge difference in where I feel the tension during and after the movement. 

Really hard to tell from the video as the plates are blocking the view but the above could help keep the bar closer to your body too.

From what I understand (please correct if I'm wrong) the RDL movement is effectively the top portion of a standard deadlift and the bar should travel as closely to the body as possible.

I prefer RDL ,  i favour combound movements and RDL feels more combound than hip thrust.

Thanks for the insight man. Your observations/suggestions are right on, this discussion has been carried here : http://www.adarq.org/forum/sts-qa/age-vs-vertical-various-qa-%28-programming-exercise-form-etc-%29/

Nice squatting. Just wanted to ask you , you probably discussed about this and I am still pretty fresh here, why do have that plates below your feet when squatting ? :)

Thanks! Plates under heels is just a way to elevate heels on a stable surface, the ideal would be weightlifring shoes. Squatting with elevated heels allows better ROM/posture combinaton.
Try to do a deep squat ( bodyweight ) keeping torso upright , you will see you rise on toes at the bottom. Having something under your heel helps you to keep the squat 'heel driven', ideally you must apply all the fore with your midfoot but getting on toes is a big no.
