    AFTER THIS VIDEO, I'M TAKING A FIshows BREAK. Other things need my attention. I'm not taking a break from posting videos completely; I'm taking a break from our usual posting schedule. Video uploads will continue during this break but will be sporadic. You might get one video next week, four videos the next, none the week after, one the week after that. Who knows. I'm not making guarantees. The typical 2-4 video per week schedule you've expected will resume sometime in October. I appreciate your support and understanding.

    Juji and Chris look like long-lost brothers. I need to go find that old video of Chris pulling some insane weight for (I think) a double. Blew my mind when I first saw it.

  • thecommenter

    I don think this idea of "switching styles" and trying to mimic someone elses style is a good idea. It will always be your style, you can only focus on minor things per lift and those will incorporate into your style over time.

    i had this down before i must relearn it from myself... there is a theory that is more like a fact everything.. so this is it.. everything has its maximum speed of progress depending on what - your best- is.. you cant really haste that process if you do most likely something will go wrong.. also you cant realy go faster than that.... i dont remember my theory but it helps one to be patient and keep motivated even if it doesnt go so fast as you would wish. ... but - your best - is a huge part of that throry or fact ...thsi video made me look into it again

    this was a great video and the best deadlift advice I've seen


    It wouldve been a lot better to see the instructions and deadlifts without the lab coat on

  • TheTruthIsOutThere

    Jujimufu should try and climb a mountain go camping and film it. That would be a REAL test of STRENGH and FITNESS. Not just picking up heavy stuff but real training.

    This looks like an alternate reality mad-scientist Juji has crossed the dimensional plane to help his alternate self win a future competition.

    You know it’s good when several times through the video you think “damn this content is free”

  • 0v3rc10ck3d

    You're close but I see what Chris is saying. You need to break the weight off the floor during your setup by leaning back and driving your hips forward, and as soon as you feel the weight start to break the floor you keep it going in one fluid motion by driving with the legs like a leg press while keeping your upper and core solid. The setup causing the weight to break the floor and the following leg press to keep it moving need to be seen as one fluid motion. Per the last few reps I think you need to drive your hips forward sooner in the lift as well rather than all at once at the end.

    Great video. One of the top videos I’ve seen for deadlifts. Time to head to the gym and work on the wedge instead of “over the hips”!! Good work fellas!

    This is a lot of technical thinking and wasting of time talkin don't you just pick the weights up and put them down? Overthinking and trying to plan every little thing never been my cup of tea. Never been professionally trained in my life just 4th grade - 10th grade wrestling.
