    Had a preety good day. Kept the weights going so got alot done. Using some personal stuff thats going on in my life as a motivator as much as possible in session, but i guess we all do that. Still having issues with shin splints, tightness while running, etc so i think i might see a physical therapist soon.

    Stopping in for the first time and your #s look very solid throughout everything!

    What's your BW and age (I noticed you said "during school ...")

    What's your current goals with your lifting?

    Thanks man. Glad to see some feedback. Currently I'm a junior in high school, age 16 turning 17 this April. Weighing in at 210-215 and hoping to gain more. My goals shortly put are to be the strongest I can for football next season. Also Wanna be in the best athletic shape possible, thus why I'm trying to fix this whole leg thing. Anyway, next max session this summer hoping to hit 315 bench, 460 squat, 520 dead lift

    Hang cleans off of the rack? I'm sure I have a good idea of how you would do those, but what's the added benefit? You can do regular cleans from a dead stop position without coming off a rack.

    I like the front squats weights, doing nice numbers.

    Thanks man. And yeah we do do it from the dead stop position, we just call it hang cleans off rack because we do it in the rack instead of doing it on the dead lift mate or something. Which, we do anyway because their is no difference..haha

    Were these done in a speed fashion? It looks like you cut some sets short of failure, is that planned? I need to read back through your journal to get a feel for what you are doing with your workouts.

    Are the workouts football oriented or set up by the coaches? Or do you have some freedom to do what you want right now?

    Once you reach your chest, we hold it for 3 seconds and push it off in a exploding/speed manner. And with pause bench, I don't put on as much weight as possible, just enough so it's comfortable. And the workouts have been planned by one of our coaches who is an ex powerlifter. He gives us about 4 more workouts than I usually do(so the younger kids don't just screw around after the core lifts). So I do have a little room to do some other things.
