    I know a bodybuilder that only does half squats and he has issues locking out deadlifts because his glutes don't work properly

    Maybe you'll be able to see this video, maybe not

    I don't understand how someone can have glutes that don't work properly.. apart from 50 year old non-milfs with their saggy butts. Just squeeze the bum and bam! glutes activated. yes?

    If only it was that simple
    It's pretty common, the best way to remedy it is deep, high bar, paused squats and barbell hip thrusts

    I agree, its a recent internet created problem. No one was ever doing hip thrusts until recently and people got plenty strong enough before that.

    "Can't lockout deadlifts because my glutes don't activate." No, you can't lockout deadlifts because you're not strong enough and you are fucking around on the ground dry humping the bar.

    In my case its having singnificantly stronger quads which take over most of the movement, or getting into movement patterns that rely heavily on the quads.
    Protein manufacturers are, by and large, less trustworthy than toothless Russians selling handguns in Moscovite back alleys.

    Despite the fact that Kwarme can pull 300kg to the exact same position and it's incredibly obvious by the video that he simply is unable to push the glutes through. He's been doing some specific glute work and his pull has increased from 250kg to 290kg in 4 weeks.

    4 weeks.

    I know my knees are starting to feel it on squats even just going to parallel as I do.. As the weight on the bar slowly creeps up, my knees are feeling it.

    Don't care if its not true to form, but doms are bad enough after a proper leg workout without having to worry about messed up joints from doing 'proper form'. I will continue to do my girly squats.

    At least I'm not loading up the bar to buggery and doing those 2 inch squat/come calf presses.

    Haha.. Does anyone even use that little pad on the bar? Love the fact my traps can take the shit without needing a thick hoody and pad like you see some dudes squatting with.

    I will admit I use the really thin foam surround when squatting. I wear singlets to the gym that don't cover the back of the neck, so the knurling of the bar is directly on my skin. It's more a protector for ripping up the skin on my traps.
