Reply Love Mark! So funny. Reply Every man needs a Mark Rippetoe growing up. Reply Please do a bench press video!!!!!!!!! Reply Would converse work as lifting shoes? Reply Great video Thank you! planning to buy weightlifting shoes now! Reply Is it just me or is there a typo in the thumbnail? Reply Make sure they match with your purse. Reply Would be nice if they gave a few shoes as recommendation Reply He has been a great add-on to the series. Reply What are some good Olympic weightlifting shoes you may recommend? Reply I train in running shoes, is that bad? Reply Love these videos and Rippetoe! Reply Vibram Five Fingers are perfectly fine for heavy lifting. Reply Off topic, I think it would be awesome if you could interview on podcast or video James Yeager Reply Am I the only one that thought he meant weightlifting shoes, as in lifting shoes… Oh, I am? Okay. Reply I went to the gym in flip flops last night, U mad bro? Reply Are you serious? I love your videos but this one? "Weightlifting Shoes With Mark Rippetoe". Okey nice I think I need a pair of new weightlifting shoes..But 2.20 in the video "THESE are safe, they don't make these anymore"…… Ohh okey, so what kind of shoes am I suppose to wear? Reply I squat in flat minimalist shoes and haven't had any problems with my feet. As long as you can externally rotate the hips and create stable arches you should be fine. Reply I love Mark Rippetoe, he explains everything so good and seems so professional. To bad there isn´t many videos with him on youtube Reply Hi McKays and AoM friends! Nice video series on workouts. I particularly use Boxing shoes when I squat ( https://instagram.com/p/gAeBq-E1md/?taken-by=bertorelli ) due to the reasons listed on this video. And for lack of attention (mine and my brother's) once unloading the bench press on my side, his side still loaded, a 45 pounds plate fell right onto his foot (breaking a few bones…) After mutes of "icing" the foot, he managed to finish the day's training, but later on headed the hospital to have a brand new plaster cast… DO NOT EXERCISE BAREFOOT! 🙂 Reply I really have to object with a lot this guy says. There is no real issue in lifting barefoot, its only a problem if you aren't training that way and the extra ankle stability and mobility come into play (and you don't adjust technique for it).Secondly, the bass is so that this isnt any variable give across the shoe. If you have padded running shoes on, the compression across the sole is too variable and can cause lateral pressure in your foot. Aka welcome to snap city. You dont wear these shoes for deadlifts (most dont that I have seen anyway), and if you are squatting, then the compression of when you lift isn't going to change because the weight of the bar will force it down before you start.This guy is giving advice what appears to be from his time, and a lot has advanced since then. (Reflected in stronger lifts in all sports and categories). Love the format of the series, but this guy isn't the best with his information! Reply mark rippertie is like the grandad everyone wish they had Reply Having a different type of shoe won't do really anything to your weightlifting overall. It's like putting a dime on your weights and expect it to give you more weight to lift. Reply Yes, Bench press and power clean videos are coming. Filmed them yesterday. Reply Enjoying the Rippetoe videos. BTW, I appreciate your judicious editing of the swear words that get into your videos sometimes. Have you ever thought of producing a manliness video on not swearing in public? Seems pervasive among the youth of today. Reply Are they also useful for running/parkour ? Reply Weightlifting Shoes [VIDEO] With Mark Rippetoe http://buff.ly/1D81rje Starting Strength Reply Rip hears the word "paleo" and has a small seizure of dismissal. Reply These vids are gold! Reply I read the title in a way that weightlifting was verb. I was confused for a moment. Reply so what is the difference of that pair compared to a training shoe from lets say nike, addias etc ? Reply You should make a video about Chapstick. How to apply it and what kind to buy Reply I picked up my Weightlifting shoes last week after I finished reading Starting Strength. Got my Friday reps in and there was such a positive noticeable difference. My only regret was not getting them on sooner! Thanks AOM! Reply I am glad we still have them coming. Will there be a video about using belts? Reply Im doing 5*5 sets 'programme' and Im not having a big progress. I wanna know others opinion on this kind of training Reply Yeah I wish Mark was my grandfather lol mine are dead and never thought me shit Reply Mark Rippetoe is such an awesome guy Reply This guy knows his shit. Reply wheres the other new videos ? Reply I chuckle every time the man dismisses the stupid. Reply Kind of makes sense that Rip has the oldest and crustiest Weightlifting Shoes Reply Lol I thought he would actually be weight lifting his shoes 🙂 Reply Question – other than for squatting, what are these good for? Should I use them for deadlifts and bent over rows? I understand that for those movements they can throw off your balance a little, but I have bad wobbly feet and I can benefit from the tight grip of the shoe and the stability to the floor. Reply I really like this mans philosofy on training in general. It's like no bullshit, just common sense. Everyone should have at least one guy like Rip in their gym. Reply I really wish you could use better music for the opening title…kinda lame. Reply Nature gave humans the best shoes unless your generation has been domesticated for the last few hundred years. You don't need all these fancy shoes. Barefoot is the way to go. He talks about how contact to the ground is very important then advocates an extra layer between the foot and the ground. Does not make sense. All feeding in to the capitalist culture. I like all his lifting form advices but he is wrong on the shoes. Reply Which shoe should we get? Romaleos, SABO deadlifting shoes, adipower? 0.5 or 0.75 heel for 5'7 height? Reply Mark is awesome Reply I like the points about squishy shoes. I would like to learn more about the support aspect of what he talks about. I don't know shoe anatomy well, but I'm thinking what they call the "last" of the shoe would be the part responsible for what he's talking about? Reply I lift barefoot because I'm too cheap and lazy to go find some good weightlifting shoes. Reply I squat with Chucks. I went looking at Weightlifting shoes one day and was shocked at the price tags…..Chucks have the flat bottom and relatively inexpensive. Reply Where's the video on the importance of rest? None of the links point to the right video… Reply What about shoplifting shoes? Reply I heard that wrestling shoes are good for weightlifting. Are those type of shoes good for weightlifting? Reply lol this guy.. has me dieing laughing Reply This might be a stupid question, but should you use weightlifting shoes (with a heel) when you do lowbar squats? Reply Rip, I respect so much of what you say and do, but Chuck's are awesome for lifting. I love mine and wouldn't feel the need to use any other shoe. This article says it all…. http://www.complex.com/sneakers/2013/12/big-3-chuck-ts-benefits-chuck-taylors-powerlifting Reply I don't really understand. Barefeet is bad but the shoes have no compression? Isn't that just the same as bare feet aside from some arch support? I would think that, similar to using a bar instead of a smith machine, going barefoot would help beef up your feet to stand the extra stresses. Reply Mark Rippetoe is literally my dad. Reply I love how Rip respons to the last question, what a legend! Reply i like this guy! lol Reply Can someone please explain this to me? Can I use my olympic lifting shoes while deadlifting too? Since the heels are a bit raised, won't that create problems? Reply Can you put a link to the shoe that you used Reply great video series!! Reply fios hd net is jack shit…rip off… Reply hyip drahve Reply Note to shoemakers – here's a market. 😉 Reply I lift barefoot and I dont see a problem, 'splaying' doesnt occur unless you got fat feet. Reply I almost always squat barefooted and so do a lot of powerlifters even when they're competing and setting world records. They're called weightlifting shoes because they're used for olympic weightlifting. Olympic weightlifting as a sport itself is just called "weightlifting," only people who don't know the actual name of the sport call it olympic weightlifting. Reply These are terrific videos for getting back to basics.Many of us scramble to piece together bench/squat/dead techniques. Thanks for posting! Reply "haaapahffaffpthh" he grumbles under his crisp, brown, majestic mustache Reply whats the name of the intro music?? Reply i bought adipowers. 134 bucks on amazon and saves my back during squats and presses. i get they're not cool like converse but would rather shell out a little extra to protect my spine. Reply My only problem with weightlifting/squat shoes is that when I use them to squat I feel pain in my knees for some strange reason. Reply Squats in oly shoes are good but I was squatting barefoot for a very long time and some people prefer barefoot or something flat like chucks. Reply mark is a great coach and all but he has no concept of personal space. Reply Shoe salespeople always claim you're supposed to replace your shoes every year. I realize that's for daily use but if Rip has had his shoes for 17 years, they really should be replaced since the entire shoe starts to break down! Reply https://bestweightliftingshoes.net/weightlifting/best-cheap-weightlifting-shoe/ Reply I bought a pair of weighlifting shoes and like Mark advised in a written article I went to have it shimmed because of leg length discrepancy. https://startingstrength.com/article/leg-length-discrepancy The cobbler said the sole of the shoe is treated with something that prevents anything he tries to use from sticking to it. He said the shim will fail and then the shoes will be ruined. Mark said under no circumstances use a lift in a shoe and I had no choice while I work out a solution to the 'treated' sole on my lifting shoe. I did deadlifts with the lift in one shoe and driving all the weight through that lift into the floor at the start of the lift it was destroyed. Now I know why not to use a lift. It also has that squidge element which is no good during a lift. Reply im sorry but a mustache doesnt make you a man lol Reply I love his train of thought for "deciding where shit stops". It's the same thing when I tell people I used his GOMAD routine and people say, "humans shouldn't drink milk, we're the only mammal that drinks another mammals milk". My response is similar to Rip's, " we're also the only mammals that use elevators, tooth brushes and toilet paper." Reply rippetoe is obsolete Reply did rippetoe ignore a more upright torso (the result of forward knee travel)? any more evidence needed for his obsoleteness? Reply How is lifting heavy weight barefoot potentially going to damage the foot exactly? ? Reply When Mark says 'you gotta figure out where that shit stops', my answer is 'At the bottom of the rep' 😉 Reply I lift in Chucks Rip. Reply I think this is a pretty subjective topic. I used to squat in weightlifting shoes but I now prefer to use metcons. Can't explain why but I've got a plate in my right ankle so maybe it's a mobility issue. Deadlifting barefoot feels better to me but not much better than in metcons so I usually keep my shoes on unless I'm going for a 1-RM or something. That being said, weightlifting shoes makes a huge difference for me with oly lifts, particularly the snatch, mostly due to my poor balance. Reply UPWERD DRAHVE Reply "We want, not squish". Mark seems like the old coach from Rocky Reply Does Rip also endorse deadlifting in these shoes? Reply No one in these videos ever answers the basic question of WHEN do you wear elevated heel weightlifting shoes. Do you wear them just for squats? Are they beneficial for deadlifts, too? How about standing presses? Reply Back in the "Good Old Days" before $ 100 plus weightlifting shoes, we used to lift in boots and have a shoemaker add a 1/4" to the heel. Now, everything has to be specially made and super expensive. WE'RE JUST TRAINING, FOLKS. Most of us aren't Olympic caliber. Reply sorry, can i check that there should be no wriggle room for the toes is this correct? Reply Incorrect to say lifting barefoot is damaging on the feet. Not really. Barefoot provides the best form of neuro activation that can actually boost your squat numbers through effective feedback. Of course you need reasonable ankle mobility which you can derive by placing your heels on a 2.5kg flat plate Reply running shoes seem to lose most of their squish over time, so I kinda think old running shoes aren't half bad. if you lift in them, the weight will make the padding wear out even faster, so it's somewhat of a self-correcting problem. obviously best to have weightlifting shoes though.
