nice depth. form looked really good. I'd can the "Lightweight, SLAY IT" though hahah. I know it pumps you up but imo only ronnie can pull that off.

That's some sick lifting! The 275 looked real easy. What is your PR on those?

Nice lifts - they looked great.

A question for you (or anyone else I suppose): I tried these for the first time on Friday with the cross-armed approach. I only went up to a weight of 135 so I could focus on my form. Even with that little weight, my shoulders were in a ton of pain! Do you have any tips on how to relieve it? My wrists aren't flexible enough to perform the alternative grip.

Again, great lifts... looked easy.

You are most likely holding it in the wrong spot. Bodybuilder style should not be painful.

I didn't even see these comments, my bad.

I don't really think when I'm training. I lift at home, so I pretty much do whatever I want, like making noise.

Great lifts man.

What camera are you using?

Casio EX-Z850 - got it for $265 on newegg.com. Probably discontinued now, but it was noted for its video quality.

I love the comments. Solid lifting.

You need to bolt your squat racks down or something.

I've tried doing these twice now and they freak'n KILL! I've poked around this site and done the Google thing, but all I can find is 'rest the bar on your shoulders' and 'keep your elbows up.' Is there any other advice that comes to mind? I'm thinking about giving up the movement completely. Sucks, I tell ya!

Once again, impressive video man.

Rest the bar on your delts. It will still hurt at first, but that area should toughen up quickly.
