    Bart, whats a good substitute for deadlifts if you have a weak lower back?´╗┐

    • Andy Bui / March 26, 2015

      Sumo DL. If not, back exentsions or more squats

    • Ian Jefferson / March 31, 2015

    • Ian Jefferson / March 31, 2015

    • MrHuggah / May 5, 2015

      +Yung .Nathan G Love rack pulls, especially since i can go 20-40 kgs
      (depending on the mood) heavier than on a deadlift ­čśÇ

      +Nici Geelhoed Only barely. But this video came out in 2013. If youve seen
      any recent vids he goes borderline below parallel.

    The structure of the spine as far as say the distance from the hips to the
    top of the spine is just to support & its not able to handle much bending
    or flexion or designed for it which happens in a barbell back squat..Bill
    Desimone in his seminars explained there is forces that happen called
    active inefficiency in describing loads or bending & muscle torque
    curves..For ex, sit & bend your back forward all the way til the chest gets
    right near your thighs sitting on a chair & you cant straighten your legs &
    move your back back some & you can..

    Its the same with loading weight to rest on your spine..Near the hips or
    below..You have Big bones, big muscles, big joints, fewer movements, fewer
    attachments & generally that movement of kinetic action is bending &
    straightening the hips & knees is what its designed to do..Above the hips
    more smaller bones & smaller vertebrae & near the bottom of the ribs can
    do some twisting..

    Once the legs bend & I mean once those legs bend , there is more active
    inefficiency when the weight is farther up the top of the spine than near
    the hips..Simply because in human nature any loading on the shoulder front
    & back, there is no more squatting just walking with weighted load & the
    spine is able to hold weight but unable to lift greater weight once the
    knees & hips bend than when weight is at or near the hips or below them..It
    has more active efficiency walking with weight than squatting..Just like
    below on YouTube you will see her movement of load is at or even below the
    hips

    If you type in Sickly strong woman lifts a 2,000 lb car from rear with
    harness!´╗┐

    I know this video is super old but curious how you developed the sciatica.
    Is that as a result of bad lifting? I notice pressure on my spine doing
    specific lifts, no pain but I do notice significant pressure at times.´╗┐

    • Kris Bhojwani / November 8, 2015

      +Adrian Keith On that comment – how did you get rid of it so quickly?

  9. AJ F / November 1, 2015

    how many reps and sets do you do each? ive been doing the big 3 too but
    havent really seen any mass gains. also, instead of bench i do dumbbell
    press with my knees up (for coordination) does that affect the ideal bench
    part of this routine?´╗┐

  10. hihi hihi / December 7, 2015

    Can u show me big 3 for beginner ?´╗┐

  11. Royale K / December 19, 2015

    I thought Bart looked like TOP from BigBang. Shoutout to my KPOP girls ;D´╗┐

  12. Mark Dijkstra / January 4, 2016

    damn the gains since this video´╗┐

    • Mark Dijkstra / June 23, 2016

      Commented this before fat gains

    sciatic pain is no joke! I struggled with herniated disk/sciatic nerve pain
    for about twenty years!!! funny being 44 and being in better shape bigger,
    stronger than I was in my twenties!´╗┐

  15. neettim / April 16, 2016

    how many reps and sets do you do when doing the Big 3??´╗┐

    • Fred Walsh / July 22, 2016

      From what I’ve heard. It’s best to find a weight that you struggle through
      but can still manage at least 8 reps. Sets im not so sure :p

    • neettim / August 1, 2016

      +Fred Walsh I’ve been trying to do it once a week and I can definitely
      see/feel the gains! I’ve been doing 5 sets and reaching for 10 reps each.
