this is my daily top warmup ramping set before the backoffs for the 6th straight day at low 190s BW (and without a leaning diet yet)

not a strict pause as i am still afraid of the form breakdown if i lean forward a bit. was able to a single 455 from a pause and i was lucky i didn't lean forward too much. erector chain would have been fried or broken.

i will vid this weight whenever i can because its just awesome to look at.  :headbang:

455x1 6th straight day

455 beat me 3-0 already in the last few days. back to plantains, blackberries and more eggs. i will vid this thing moving again by monday next week.

depth not too bad. need to step up the ankle dorsiflexion if you still can. that'll bring everything lower without pulling in the lowerback.  :strong:

yeah you're absolutely right. i've started to incorporate band-assisted dorsiflexion into my warm up but it's something i need to be working on all the time. long history of ankle injuries.

fwiw i'd consider that a full squat but depth is greater on paused reps. knee flexion probably greater, too. will try to get vid today.

Been outa town for so long... great to see these videos.  Ankle mobility can be really hard to work on.  You can increase dorsiflexion in your structures in the back of your leg are tight... but if the restriction is in the front (as it may be if you have oft-injured ankles) there seems to not be much you can do besides get a raised heel... KFs dorsiflexion might be his greatest asset to his functional squatting.   A reason why a lot of athletes simply don't benefit from such a low squat.

interesting and kind of depressing point. would be nice to do a barefoot pistol. i have strength enough for days but i can't flex my ankle enough to keep from pitching backward. regardless, will continue to work on dorsiflexion while squatting in my oly shoes.

I don't think it's really the ankles... for a pistol to be successful, and I know this because I can compare my left and right legs (I can deep pistol squat pretty easily with my left leg and I can barely get to parallel on my right), it's important to be able to "reach" the glutes and lower abs and to stabilize that pelvis.

On my right leg it's usually a lack of glute/posterior chain control/recruitment that I have that prevents me from getting all the way down, plus the lack of strength.

wrong. for me it is unquestionably the ankles. the one small change of raising my heel by 3/4" or 1" is the difference between complete inability to do a deep pistol and ability to rep them out with ease.

Well yeah but it could also mean that in that harder position the low abs might not be able to hold you from collapsing backwards, for example. Or by elevating the heel you alter the recruitment and participation factors of different muscles.

And then it could be what you say, who knows?

Eh... The point is that if he had greater ankle mobility he could do pistols with ease.   If you lack ankle mobility your center of gravity will be behind your foot.... If you have incredibly strong abs or stabilizer muscles could you do pistols in this position... Possibly.  But it will be 100x harder.  Fact is that all good "pistolers" have the ankle mobility or proportions such that their center of gravity is balanced throughout the pistol.  Sure being strong will make up for fluctuation but to get good at a movement it's best to have optimal movement patterns rather than muscle through something much harder.
