Yo Vince!
I'm back man! Just an update and quick question for you. As for the update, keto did not work very well for me. I had a lot of stomach pain and lethargy throughout the month I gave it a shot. As soon as I went back to a simple carb cycling style the stomach pain went away, but I'm still a lethargic, lazy, asswhipe (I don't think any diet will change that) Anyway, my question is about the deadlift. I know you're more of a bench "guru" but I trust your experience. As I get heavier, which for me is 550+ my hips shoot up first when watching my videos over (I train alone). Is this due to weak hams? Or posterior chain? I'm pretty ignorant as to the muscular mechanics and sticking points of the deadlift. Also, what would be the best excersise to bring this up? I don't have access to a ghr, since I train I'm my garage, but if you truly believe it would be the most beneficial I will find a way to do them. As always thanks for you time and enjoy your weekend!


If you are feeling lethargic during the day, it's definitely a diet thing. I found once I dialed in what foods worked best for me, along with some moderate conditioning, I feel infinitely better overall. You should accept nothing less. You will be a better lifter as a result.

Regarding the deadlift, it's definitely your hips. However, it might not be their strength, you just might not have them tight when you are in the hole. Make sure your hamstrings are tight before you start otherwise they can hitch up as yo initiate the pull.

Give that a shot and let me know how it works. Thanks for the question Homie
