Now the secret is out .... and it's nothing to do with their genes, diet or lifestyle.
Pharmacies, health stores, beach-front snack bars, all along Rio de Janeiro's beach fronts are selling to those in
the know a local powdered herb that has proven to be a very successful appetite suppressant which is as a side
benefit is also believed to help fight cellulite!

Thermogenic formula designed to increase thermogenesis and assist in fat loss, without eliminating muscle.
(Thermogenesis is the process of heat production in organisms.)
Now with Fucoxanthin.
Fucoxanthin is being explored for weight loss to naturally increase the metabolic rate. Japanese researchers
have found that fucoxanthin (isolated from wakame) promotes the loss of abdominal fat in obese mice and rats.
Animals lost 5 to 10% of their body weight. Although it's not fully understood how fucoxanthin works, it appears to
target a protein called UCP1 that increases the rate at which abdominal fat is burned.

People ask me everyday what was the strongest product that I have taken to lose weight the fastest. I took
Prothinspo's Hydroxylim/ Diet Slim...I chose this product because of two studies.... The first studied showed a
more rapid and effective weight loss than other diet products.This study set out to determine the efficacy of a
calcium/potassium salt of 60% HCA extract from Garcinia cambogia alone and in combination with niacin-bound
chromium and a standardized Gymnema Sylvestre Extract on weight-loss parameters in human volunteers. I know
blah blah, but  In a double-blind fashion,
60 moderately obese individuals were randomly assigned to three groups.

Dear Jodee, can I lose weight by using Cocaine?
Dear Prothinspo Member…

Cocaine is an illegal and dangerous drug - outlawed in most countries around the world. Many people speculate as to whether
celebrities ever partake of the drug to induce rapid weight loss. We can only speculate until they get arrested....Most people already
know that cocaine can make you lose weight.


Here is a story I found from New Zealand. A wealthy 51 yr-old property developer is a suspected drug dealer. He attempted to justify
his actions by claiming that cocaine was helping him lose weight.


"In explanation for his actions, the defendant stated that he had discovered taking cocaine in the evening suppressed his appetite and
helped him lose weight," the police summary said.
This may explain the success of Henderson's slimming regime. Last winter, Henderson seized on the Atkins craze and lost at least
24kg.
During the stressful 2000 when he was building the $250 million Princes Wharf redevelopment, "Hendo" was a big lad.
But by last winter, the metamorphosis was spectacular.
He sported a new wardrobe and cut a much finer figure on the waterfront.
Come the summer, he appeared even leaner, as the diet regime continued apace and his face shape changed markedly
."

I don’t suggest getting hooked on any illegal drugs to lose weight.
I only know of one diet product on the market that mimics the effects of cocaine weight loss. Of course it is new to the market after
many years of clinical testing.


AFTER DECADES OF RESEARCH...
Introducing the World’s First Chemically Altered Diet Pill designed to stimulate the COCAINE AMPHETAMINE REGULATORY TRANSCRIPT
(C-A-R-T) and Inhibit NEUROPEPTIDE-Y (NPY)!
Through years of study and breakthroughs in modern science we’ve discovered the key to long term weight loss success. And you
can only find this compound inside of THIS weight loss solution.

The reason you are overweight is because there is a YIN-YANG battle going on deep within your brain, inside the satiety center of your
hypothalamus. The battle is, C.A.R.T. vs. NP-Y… or Good vs. Evil.

C.A.R.T. (Cocaine.Amphetamine.Regulatory.Transcript.) is the “Good Guy”… and if you’re trying to lose weight it's your Guardian Angel!
The C stands for cocaine and the A for amphetamine because these drugs put this chemical into overdrive. When C.A.R.T. is
stimulated it increases your metabolism, reduces your appetite, and increases insulin to deliver energy to your muscles rather than
be stored as body fat.

NP-Y (Neuropeptide-Y) is the Villain. It’s a stress hormone that drives the eating chemicals into overdrive. When stimulated it will
decrease your metabolism, cause your body temperature to drop, and increase your appetite.

THIS PRODUCT was designed to stimulate C.A.R.T. and inhibit NP-Y, thus helping you win the battle of the bulge. (note: This product
does not contain cocaine, amphetamine, ephedra, or cannabanoids. We found alternatives to cocaine and amphetamine to activate C.
A.R.T.)
READ MORE BELOW..Here is what's in THIS CART Program and how this product works:
Decades of RESEARCH TO FIND OUT HOW TO COPY THE EFFECTS OF COCAINE AND WEIGHT LOSS..
After decades of research and scientific breakthroughs in the weight loss pills industry, we've finally discovered the key to fast and
lasting weight loss success.
And that key is only available in this CART PROGRAM.

The main reason you're overweight is the back-and-forth battle going on deep within the brain inside the satiety center of your
hypothalamus. The ongoing battle exists between the two neuropeptides CART and NPY ... also known as the good and the bad when it
comes to weight loss.

CART (Cocaine Amphetamine Regulatory Transcript) is your best friend if you're trying to lose weight. On the other hand NPY is the
enemy when it comes to weight loss. THIS PRODUCT was designed as the best weight loss pills to stimulate CART while inhibiting NPY
to help you
lose weight
safely and powerfully.

On the other hand NPY is the enemy when it comes to weight loss. As a stress hormone, NPY kicks up the appetite and signals
hunger. When NPY is stimulated it limits the metabolism
and lowers the body temperature.

THIS PRODUCT is a product which was designed to stimulate CART while inhibiting NPY to help you lose weight safely and powerfully
in a way the best weight loss pills have never been able to do before even from what was previously considered to be the top weight
loss pills.

What It Does:

Cocaine and Amphetamine kicks the body's CART into overdrive which helps to increase the metabolism, reduce the appetite and
increase insulin levels to deliver the maximum amount of energy to the muscles instead of storing excess calories as body fat. By
igniting CART,
This CART PROGRAM  product has become the best weight loss pills available!

Activators:
DiCaffeine Malate - 250mg
The rumors that Coca-Cola included actual cocaine when it was first introduced are actually true. When the drug was illegalized after
World War I, Coke needed an alternative to stimulate the mind and body while delivering similar benefits as cocaine. Caffeine soon
replaced the cocaine and Coke has remained one of the best-selling beverages in the world. In Fenphedrine we use one of the most
potent and multi-dimensional forms of caffeine combined with all-natural malic acid bonded to increase energy levels, stimulate
thermogenesis and promote greater mental alertness and focus.
The only way to experience the full benefits of caffeine is through DiCaffeine Malate.

Hops - 100mg
Commonly known as Hops, the plant Humulus Lupulus is one of only two plants in the Cannabinaceae family. The alkaloid Lupulinum is
extracted from hops and
works as a mild stimulant to trigger relaxation within the body.

Razberi K™ - 50mg
Subjects on a high-fat diet to induce obesity in a recent study (Morimoto et al, 2005) gained less body fat when using 1 to 2%
concentrations of this patented and proven form of Raspberry Ketone
than a control group on the same diet.

Cocoa Extract - 50mg
Cocoa Extract is packed with powerful constituents including methylxanthines (theobromine, caffeine, and theophylline), biogenic
amines (phenylethylamine, tyramine, and synephrine), amino acids (phenylalanine, tryptophan, tyrosine, others), minerals (with a high
content of magnesium), several antioxidants and non-psychoactive cannabanoid-related compounds to ignite the weight loss
process. The Pea in Cocoa Extract is an amphetamine-like compound closely related to the naturally occurring catecholamine
neurotransmitters and the amino acid precursors tyrosine and phenylalanine. PEA works within the brain to promote feelings of
pleasure and relaxation. Extracted from chocolate,
PEA is the leading aphrodisiac found in chocolate.

Ginger Extract (20% Gingerols) - 50mg
Ginger has been used for centuries to provide relief from gallstones and numerous other health conditions. Ginger helps flush bile
from the gallbladder to eliminate unnecessary waste within the body. Ginger has also been shown to thin the blood and lower
cholesterol to help cleanse the body and increase circulation.
This process speeds the metabolism and increases the flow of nutrients within the body
to provide additional energy.

Synephrine HCL - 20mg
Synephrine is a powerful weight loss ingredient derived from citrus aurantium. Synephrine HCL provides similar benefits as caffeine
and other powerful stimulants without serious side effects. By increasing energy expenditure, increasing the metabolism and
suppressing the appetite,
Synphrine HCL is key to signalling key weight loss functions within the body.

Thermodiamine™ (98% Evodiamine) - 15mg
Thermodiamine is clinically proven to reduce fat absorption within the body while increasing thermogenesis. Thermodiamine
increases lipolytic activity (the fat–burning process) by increasing the vanilloid receptors to increase body temperature.

Lipolide-Sc™ (98% Sclareolide) - 15mg
The powerful thermogenic properties of Lipolide enhance weight loss by supporting an increased level of lipolytic activity through the
Cyclic AMP. Cyclic AMP
helps the body produce more energy by breaking down excess fat stored within the body.


This is a high performance weight loss supplement that utilizes a formula that is first of its kind! This is the first diet pill to base its
formula on scientific research isolating the Cocaine Amphetamine Regulatory Transcript (C-A-R-T) and Neuropeptide-Y (NPY).

In short, CART is the good chemical component that triggers increased metabolism and lowers appetites and NPY is the bad stress
hormone that causes your body to lower in body temperature, decrease metabolism, and increase appetite. Adjusting the CART and
NPY in your body, Fenphadrine increases metabolism, reduces appetite, increases muscle function, and reduces body fat storage.

But science aside, THIS  is one of the most popular weight loss products on the market. It has consistently received the highest
rankings and feedback from consumers as being the Most Powerful Diet Pill. According to our independent research,
AND has 97% customer approval rating, which is unheard of in this industry.
There are multiple reports citing results ranging from 10 pounds per week to 33 pounds in just 3½ weeks.

30 DAY SQUAT CHALLENGE PAGE 1, PAGE 2, PAGE 3...
PAGE 2...

muscles” – erectors, obliques and abs. So the more you Squat, the stronger your abs and obliques will be. Many people struggling
with lower back pain – including me years ago – think they have a “weak lower back”. Usually they just have weak abs. Heavy Squats
strengthens the muscles around your spine which adds lower back support. A study from Stone (1990) showed 31% of men have
back pain but only 23% of weight lifters.33 Squatters have stronger muscles around their spine to protect it. And their stronger legs
makes it easier to Squat to pick up something. This is safer for your spine than bending over with straight legs and a round back.
Compression is NOT an issue. Your body will respond to vertical compression when you Squat by building denser bones and stronger
muscles around your spine. This will make it more resistant to compression and fracture. Sitting slouched is worse for your back
than Squats.34 Shear is NOT an issue. There’s no shear force when you Squat low bar with your torso more incline as I do. Even if
your trunk muscles can’t maintain proper position – your lower back will simply round, no sliding of your vertebra will occur. So no
need to Squat more upright. Some people avoid “stressing” their lower back at all costs. Yet lack of stress is what keeps their lower
back weak. Exposing yourself to controlled, gradual stress will make your lower back stronger. Squats strengthen the muscles
around your spine which protects it from back injury. The key is to start light, add a little weight each workout, and use proper form: no
lower back rounding. No hyper-extension of the lower back either. Just a neutral lower back with the natural arch. This way there’s no
squeezing of your spinal discs when you Squat, no risk of herniated discs. You can wear a belt to add lower back support and Squat
bigger weights. Just keep in mind belts won’t prevent injury from Squatting with bad form. Worse, they can create a false sense of
security. So make sure you Squat with proper form – knees out, hips back, parallel, neutral back. Myth: Squats Widen The Hips This
myth goes back to June 1952 when bodybuilder Irvin Johnson wrote in Iron Man magazine…35 Squats, especially with heavy weights,
produce big fannies. Broaden the hips and develop and upper thigh like that of a woman.  Bodybuilder Vince Gironda joined Jonson’s
anti-Squat crusade the same year. He wrote in Iron Man magazine that Squats overdevelop the glutes, widen the hips and prevent the
“v-shape”. Yet here’s the truth: Your gluteus maximus (one of your butt muscles) is the largest one in your body That means your
gluteus maximus is also the largest muscle of your hips Squats works your glute muscles, so they grow bigger from Squatting But
none of your glute attachments are on the outside of your hips So if your glutes grow, they grow BACK – not to the side The only part of
your glutes that grows on the side of your hips are your Tensor Fascae Latae. But this is the smallest of your four gluteal muscles,
with therefore the least potential for growth. The majority of your glutes will grow back and thus cannot increase the width of your
hips Hip width is mostly a genetic factor – you’re born with large hip bones or you aren’t. If you are, the only way to reduce the size of
your hips is by sawing a part of your pelvis off. Or you can make them look narrower by increasing the size of your shoulders and
thighs (the latter is what Squats do). If Squatting did increase the width of your hips, then Olympic Lifters who Squat heavy multiple
times a week would all have broad hips. Yet this isn’t the case because your glutes muscles will always grow back, not to the side,
regardless of how heavy or often you Squat. Myth: Squats Make Your Butt Huge This myth has the same origins as “Squat Widen The
Hips“. Bodybuilders Irvin Johnson and Vince Gironda went on anti-Squat crusades in 1952, spreading the myth that Squats widen the
hips, cause overdeveloped glutes and make it impossible to achieve the “v-shape”. Yes, Squats work your glutes so it will develop the
muscles of your butt. But you won’t get a big butt like Kim Kardashian, Jenifer Lopez or Nicki Minaj unless you have the genetics for it.
And if you have the genetics for it, then your butt was already big before you did Squats. Whatever the case, muscle tissue is denser
than fat tissue. A “fat butt” from sitting on it all day, eating junk food and not Squatting will always be bigger than a “muscular butt”
from doing Squats and eating right. That means you’re better off Squatting. Here’s what you can expect: If you have a big butt… Squats
will improve the shape of your butt and make it firmer. If you have excess butt fat to lose, Squats will help reduce it since it burns
calories. But you’ll get the best results if you eat right on top of doing your Squats. If you have no butt… Squats works your glute
muscles, so they develop your butt so it has more curve and shape. However if you were flat like a pancake before, don’t expect to
wake up like Kim Kardashian or Jenifer Lopez just from doing Squats three times a week. I was born with “skinny calves” genetics,
others are born with “big butt” genetics. There’s little you can do about it except accept your body as it is. Which isn’t an excuse to do
nothing and stay fat, weak and out-of-shape. Get off your butt, eat better, start Squatting. Then stop worrying about your butt :) Myth:
Squats Increase Waist Size The first origin of this myth goes back to bodybuilders Vince Gironda and Irvin Johnson. They wrote in Iron
Man magazine in 1952 that Squats cause big hips, huge glutes and increase waist size. The second origin of this Squat myth is people
mixing causation with correlation. Some Squatters do have big bellies, but not because of the Squats they do. Examples: Strength
Athletes. Some heavy weight powerlifters, olympic lifters and strongman have big bellies. Usually it’s because they eat tons of food to
get bigger and lift more. The excess calories are stored as fat, causing a big belly. Squats have nothing to do with it. Pro-bodybuilders.
Some pro-bodybuilders almost look pregnant on stage. It’s not the Squats but the drug abuse. High dose insulin use increases
visceral fat deposits around their organs. Add 10,000 calorie diets which make their intestines grow bigger and push their stomach
out. So unless you abuse drugs or eat tons of food, Squats won’t get you a big belly. Your abs are a thin sheet of muscle. They’ll grow if
you Squat, turning into “six pack abs” if you eat right so you see them. But you won’t jump waist size overnight because your abs are
thin and have thus little growth potential. Most people doing StrongLifts 5×5 find their waist size DECREASES from Squatting.
Remember Squats build muscle, including ab muscles, and muscle is denser than fat. I’ve been Squatting for 14 years and must wear
a belt in all my jeans because I have no belly despite Squatting 180kg/400lb. Myth: Squats Decrease Flexibility Squats will indeed
decrease your flexibility if you do half reps by barely bending through your hips and knees. These “Quarter Squats” don’t work your
hips through a full range of motion, don’t require much hip flexibility as a result, and thus won’t increase or maintain hip flexibility.
Different story if you Squat until your hips go below the top of your knees. “Breaking parallel” moves your body through a long range of
motion – half your height. This requires hip/ankle flexibility to hit proper depth as well as shoulder flexibility to get the bar in proper
position on your upper-back. If you haven’t never Squatted in months, try it today and you might realize you ARE inflexible. Which is
normal – people used to get daily hip flexibility work by pooping on “Squat toilets”. Now we sit on toilets, sit at work, sit in the car. So
we since we barely ever Squat, we lose the flexibility to Squat. The good news is you can regain that lost flexibility by Squatting
several times a week. This moves your hip muscles through a full range of motion and stretches your upper-body. Once your flexibility
is back, keep Squatting to maintain it. This prevents back injuries, arthritis and improves your posture. Remember the Volvo ad with
Jean-Claude Van Damme doing a full split.36 Van Damme has lifted weights for years here in Brussels, not so far from where I live.
And yet he has done full splits in all his movies. If lifting weights and Squats decreased flexibility, he wouldn’t be able to do this. And it’
s not faked. Myth: Squats Make You Slow For Sports The origin of this myth comes from people believing Squats will make them bulky.
The naive thinking is that your legs will become so huge and muscular from doing Squats, they’ll slow you down for sports because
you have to carry more weight. Add the myth that Squatting makes you inflexible… Yet nobody ever became bulky overnight from
Squatting. I’ve been doing Squats for 14 years, almost every week, usually several times a week, once 100 days in a row. But I’m not
bulky because that requires eating tons of food or using drugs. You won’t wake up like Ronnie Coleman from just Squatting. But let’s
say you Squat three times a week on StrongLifts 5×5, double your Squat to 140kg/300lb over the next six months and gain 10kg/25lb
body-weight in the process. Will that 10kg/25lb of extra body-weight make you slower considering your leg strength is double what it
was before? The answer is no. Here’s why: To be fast, you must be explosive. You need power. Power – remember physics classes –
is work/time.37 Work is your ability to move an object. This requires strength. Squats increase leg strength, resulting in more work in
the same time. If you can do more work in the same amount of time, you have more power. If you’ve gained power, you are faster and
more explosive than before. Doubling your Squat thus makes you faster, not slower. Elite soccer player with bigger Squats sprint
faster and jump higher.38 Top Crossfiters like Rich Froning, Jason Khalipa and Ben Smith Squat over 400lb yet aren’t slow.394041  
Gaining strength from Squats is like putting a bigger engine in your car – you can go faster because you have more leg power. Myth:
Squats Stunt Growth The world champion weight lifter Naim Süleymanoglu is one of the strongest and smallest man that ever existed.
42 At 1m47/4’10”, he could Squat over 200kg and clean & jerked 190kg at the 1988 Olympic Games in Seoul. This triple body-weight
strength feat earned him to the nickname “Pocket Hercules”. But it also spread the myth that Squats stunt your growth. Naive people
saw Süleymanoglu lift insane weights overhead and concluded this caused his small stature: repetitive compression forces on his
spine, bones and joints, trapped between the weight and floor, from years of heavy lifting. And yet plenty of Squatters are tall despite
starting at an early age and exposing their body to huge compression forces through heavy Squats. Examples: Many professional
bodybuilders started Squatting in their early teens but became over 1m82/6’2? tall. The best known are Arnold Schwarzenegger, Lou
Ferrigno and Dave Draper. Many strongman athletes are over 1m82/6’2? – Žydrunas Savickas, Phil Pfister, Brian Shaw, Hafþór Júlíus
Björnsson (Gregor Clegane “The Mountain” in HBO’s “Game of Thrones”), etc Clearly, the compression forces during Squats can’t
stunt growth or every strong Squatter would be a dwarf. Not only that, compression forces when you run or jump are up to 5x greater
than when you Squat, so every kid on earth who runs or jumps would turn into a dwarf. Yet that’s not the case. The only way Squats
can stunt a child’s growth is if he drops the bar on his bones. This would damage his growth plate and result in unequal bone length.
But Squats are a controlled movement so this is unlikely. The child has a bigger chance to break a bone getting hit while playing
soccer. And this is the best reason to make a child Squat: the compression forces during Squats increase bone density. Stronger
bones are harder to break. So the child Squatting with proper form under supervision is less likely to damage his growth plate playing
soccer or other sports. Outside growth plate injuries, the only thing that can stunt your growth is malnutrition, lack of exercise and
bad genetics. My parents aren’t tall so I didn’t get tall. I’m only 1m73/5’8? and often joke that’s why I started to lift weights – since I
couldn’t get taller, I figured I’d try to get wider! But Squats won’t stunt your growth. And the existence of a small lifter like Naim
Süleymanoglu doesn’t make it true. He was small before he started to Squat and would have stayed small even if he never did Squats.
It’s called genetics. Claiming he’s short because he Squats is like saying… “Gymnasts are short, so gymnastics makes you short”
“Basketball players are tall, so playing basketball makes you tall” “Victoria Secret models are tall, so modelling makes you tall” This
is winner-take-all-effect: Naim’s short forearms were an advantage and made him rise to the top. Smaller gymnasts weigh less which
makes body-weight exercises easier. Tall basketball players have a greater armspan which is better. Long legs are hot. But
correlation does not imply causation. Squat Technique Squat Stance Most people will Squat with a too narrow stance. I made this
mistake during my first years doing Squats because the bodybuilders in my gym Squatted narrow to “emphasize their quads”. The
problem: your belly gets in the way of your legs on the way down which makes hitting parallel hard. Then there are powerlifters who
Squat wide, with their feet almost touching the Squat Rack. I hurt my left groin years ago doing this. You need a lot of hip flexibility to
Squat parallel with a sumo stance. And the powerlifters who Squat this way often wear specialized Squat suits that protect their groin.
We Squat raw. So your Squat stance shouldn’t be too narrow otherwise you’ll struggle to hit parallel which is bad for your knees. But
your stance can’t be too wide either or you risk hurting your groin and will struggle to keep your knees out (which is crucial for knee
safety). Rule of thumb: Stand shoulder-width apart from heel to heel. If you draw a straight vertical line from your shoulder joint to the
floor, the width of your shoulders should match your your stance. From the heels, not toes! Your toes will be out. That makes the
distance heel-to-heel narrower than toe-to-toe. Stand shoulder-width apart from your heels, not your toes. Beyond this, your optimal
Squat stance will depend on your build. If you have long legs with a short torso like me, Squatting with a stance slightly wider than
shoulder-width apart will feel better. But avoid super wide or too narrow – shoulder-width apart from heel to heel is the safest and
best for most people. Foot Position The safest way to Squat is with your feet and knees pointing in the same direction. This prevents
twisting of your knee ligaments because your thighs and feet are aligned. Now since you should Squat with your knees out, your toes
should point slightly out as well. Rule of thumb: Toes out 30°. And if you Squat with a stance slightly wider or narrower than shoulder-
width apart (distance between heels not toes), point your toes out slightly more or less. Heels on the floor. Your whole foot, including
your heels, must stay in contact with the floor during every Squat rep. This is the most stable position and prevents knee stress. If
your heels come off the floor, don’t put a wooden block or small plates under your heels. It’s unstable and will stress your knees. Fix
your Squat form instead: shoulder-width stance, knees out. Curling your toes can help but they should stay on the floor with the weight
over your mid-foot. Knee Position The most common mistake is to Squat with your knees pointing straight forward. Many people Squat
this way because they think of it as a “quad exercise”. Yet this form is inefficient for getting stronger at Squats and will hurt you. Here’
s why Squatting with knees forward is wrong: You’ll struggle to hit parallel because your belly gets in the way of your legs on the way
down You’ll get front hip pain because your thigh bone (femur) will impinge your hip (the ilium).43 Your lower back will round at the
bottom because your hip can’t drop between your thighs You’ll Squat less because you’re not engaging your groin – less muscles
working is less weight Even worse is to let your knees cave in when you Squat. If your knees drop inwards and end in a “valgus”
position, you get all the above problems PLUS twisting of your knee ligaments. This can result in knee injuries like ACL tears,
especially if you do it during heavy Squats. Push Your Knees Out. Squat down by pushing your knees to the side. Keep pushing your
knees to the walls aside of you on the way up. If you feel it more in your groin, you’re doing it right. Turn Your Feet Out. Your thighs
must match the direction of your feet so there’s no twisting of your knee ligaments. So stand shoulder-width apart (heel to heel) with
your toes out 30°. The next big mistake is to let your knees travel too far forward as you Squat down. This will stress your knees and
kill strength. The right way to Squat is to engage your stronger hip muscles so they carry the weight and take load of your knees.
How? Squat down by pushing your knees out and hips back. “Don’t let your knees travel over your toes” is a myth. If you have long
thighs like me (or clown feet) your knees will come over your toes. The point is to engage your hips. Squat down by pushing your
knees out and hips back. Your knees will come forward the first half of the movement, then no more. Squat Grip Your upper-back
supports the weight when you Squat. Not your hands. If you try to carry the weight with your hands anyway, you’ll get wrist/elbow pain
once you Squat with 3/4 plates on each side of the bar. Your hands are too small for so much weight. So support the weight with your
upper-back. Squeeze Your Upper-back. The bar will dig into your spine, move around and stress your wrists if you Squat with a loose
upper-back. So pinch your shoulder-blades together before you unrack the barbell. Your back muscles will be between your skin and
bar, and support the weight. Use a Medium Grip. The narrower your grip, the harder you can squeeze your upper-back. Most people
lack the shoulder flexibility for a too narrow Squat grip though. So use a medium grip, with your pinky on top of the mark on the bar for
bench press (I go slightly narrower). Do Shoulder Dislocations. If the medium grip hurts due to tight shoulders, Squat with a wider grip.
Then do daily shoulder dislocations to improve flexibility so you can move to the medium grip after a few weeks. Remember: a wide
grip is less effective for tightening your upper-back. Your optimal Squat grip will depend on your build, just like your optimal Squat
stance does. I’m a small guy with a narrow build – if you’re a big guy with wide shoulders, you’ll have to grip the bar wider than me. The
goal is to grip the bar in such a way you can squeeze your upper-back maximally. Squat Bar Position When I started to Squat 14 years
ago here in Belgium, my neck hurt so much I put a foam pad on the bar. Then I moved to wrapping a towel around the bar because
those pads kept splitting in two. Silly looking back – I’ve since then Squatted over 400lb wearing just a t-shirt and without neck pain.
The trick is to Squat with the bar positioned correctly on your back. Put it too high and it will hurt your neck and pull you forward. Put it
too low, it will slide off your back and hurt your wrists and elbows. But put it correctly as I do and you’ll Squat more weight without
getting hurt. Below Your Traps. On your traps is for a high bar Squat with more vertical torso. I do low bar Squats because you can use
more muscles, lift more weight and get stronger with that Squat form. So put the bar below your traps, not on top of it. Above Your
Rear Shoulder Muscles. If you put the bar lower than this, it will slide off your back on each rep, which will stress your wrists and
elbows and result in pain. So put the bar between your traps and rear shoulders muscles, but not lower where it would slide off your
back. Once the bar rests between your traps and rear shoulder muscles, lock it into position by squeezing your upper-back. Do this by
pinching your shoulder-blades together using a medium grip BEFORE you unrack the weight. Then keep your upper-back tight and
chest up so the bar can’t move around. Make sure the bar is centered on your upper-back. If it sits more to the right or left, you’ll get
hip, knee or lower back pain because one side is working harder. Center the bar so both sides lift equal amount of weights. I always
have to pay attention to this because one of my shoulders is tighter. And don’t use a bar pad, manta ray or wrap a towel around the
bar. People have Squatted over 400kg wearing just a t-shirt. If they can do it, so can you. Just put the bar in proper position and then
squeeze your upper-back before you unrack the weight. This way the bar can’t dig in your spine. Head Position Many people will look
up when they Squat. I made this mistake my first years because I was Squatting in front of a mirror. It seemed natural to use it to
check my Squat form by looking up. But this eventually hurt my neck. So I stopped looking up and moved to Squatting with my head
neutral. You wouldn’t Squat with your lower back hyper-extended because that stresses your lumbar discs and can result in
herniation. Same reason why you shouldn’t look up when you Squat: it hyper-extends your neck which can result in spinal disk injury.
Squat with your head neutral and you’ll be safe. Head Neutral. Video record yourself from the side – you should see a straight line from
the top of your head to your lower back. Do this by fixing a point in front of you during your whole Squat set. If you face a mirror, ignore
it by looking *though* it, not at it. This keeps your neck safe. Don’t Look At Your Feet. If you do, you’ll lose upper-back tightness. The
point is to keep your head neutral, not look at your feet. Fix a point in front of you during the whole Squat set so you achieve a straight
line from the top of your head to your lower back. If you’ve been looking up while Squatting so far, switching to neutral head position
will feel weird. You might also struggle to keep your neutral. I remember my head shooting up whenever I approached my max weight.
