    How heavy did you go?

    After I warmed-up, I hit 3x5 when I did them.

    Next time I train with a partner, I'll try them for higher reps as you suggest.

    Thanks, brother. :strong:

    When I did Zercher squats, I stopped when my elbows hit my knees.

    I'll wrap a towel around the bar next time I do them.

    Crazy video.

    I think I'm to stick with zero-momentum Zerchers.

    I kinda cringed watching the guy hit his set with 605.

    One of the reasons I started to do them is because I need to work on sitting back and using more leg drive when I deadlift.

    I honestly don't think I could do them off the floor no matter how flexible I am due to my height.

    I hit them from the same height my deadlift stroke begins.

    You should give them a try.

    Thanks, brother. :strong:

    After hitting 415, I saw stars for ~15 seconds and thought I might pass out.

    465 was much easier on my CNS for some reason?
