    Would like to have a go with a trapbar at some point, but our gym's barely big enough to swing a cat, let alone store all manner of different equipment, haha!

    that's a strong front squat Tom! I can't get a comfortable enough arm/bar position to go over 100kg (220lbs) on these. I saw a vid a while back that reccommended grinding your triceps into the bar beforehand to help get the elbows up... worked but seriously f**king hurt!

    nice pulling too mate!
