Here's some vids from today. Reko continues to get better in his suit. We had one of our new guys (Ditka2008) come out to squat. I took it easy on squats to pull big - ended up with a PR!
655 DL - Me (How's the form?)
625 Squat - Reko
315 Working on Sitting Back - Shawn
Oh yea, any pointers on the squat too would be appreciated (messed up the unrack a bit on the first attempt, that is a given already).
Good work guys!
Reko, it looks to me like you need to sit back a bit more and you probably know you need to get down a few more inches for a competition squat (a nice lift in any event).

Ben- I'd say that pull looks real good. Definitely a big improvement from when you started.
Reko- just curious why you guys didn't go ghetto-monolift there? If you plan to compete in a monolift, I would do all your gear work in one. I think it definitely changes everything(tightness, stance, depth, etc.) Also, what is the most weight you have squatted and do you ever use knee wraps? I think with a monolift+knee wrap you could have gone deeper and came up easier.

Ben has given me some good advice and I am sure Will will be able to help out once he gets back and sees me in a suit, but I figure the more people that look at it the more can chime in.

Not sure why we didn't turn ghetto mono on that one - probably should have.
It will take time but I think you'll get the feel for it very soon. Strong stuff none the less
