Thanks guys. A pair of lifting shoes is on my list next but I am broke now. I just bought the rack and more weight here recent. I would like to get some bands or chains in the future also.

Agree with the above.

Plus you reminded me about Anthrax so I had to dig that CD out :)

they have a few different styles but are the least expensive I know of. I believe they are remarked DoWins.

Thanks man, I checked them out and they are not making that shoe anymore. I will have to see when I get some extra cash.


Vids from today...

Front Squat. This is only my 2nd time doing these so the weight is light until I get comfortable with them. I am also really working on stretching to get in the clean position but my right elbow hurts like hell when I try.

FSs look good. I like the howling in the 1st video... way to be intense!!! jk

Press: Get under the bar, once the bar clears your face push your head forward and shrug the weight once your arms are fully extended. I cant tell but be sure to keep your core tight and flex your quads too.

Haha, that was my dog. She was howling at the fire whistle..
I will take your advise. Ya I keep my abs tight and my legs actually burn sometimes during presses.

It looks like your back is rounding a little at the bottom of your back squats. Rows looked good, front squats looked good, and presses were decent.

It still may be rounding a bit. It was much worse before if I went below parallel. I have been doing a lot of stretching lately to improve that.

This will be it for the week. I had a hard time getting everything to loosen up for the squats which kept me from getting as deep as I wanted to. I will work with this weight again next week and improve form and depth.

All weekend and no feedback yet... I know the squat wasn't very good but I need some thoughts on the DL form.

I hate to dig this tread up again but I would like some tips on my DL's before I do them this week.

Your hips rise faster than your upper body.

Think a piece of steel running through your spine down through your pelvis. Be much tighter. Abs, shoulders, arch.
