Thanks man. I know I should be pushing 180 by now. Need to be more consistent.

Very wide for raw. Because I have squatted multi-ply for years, this style just seems to suit me better. When I go narrow, I am weaker AND my for suffers.

Felt pretty strong tonight. I measured the block pulls at the end and the blocks were set at 5.75". Leaves the bar at mid-high shin. It's a very awkward spot for me to get the bar going since I usually get all my speed off the floor. I was happy with how smooth the lockout was on 585 though after I got it moving. My buddy John showed me some good stretches and some work to do on the foam roller to help with my hip situation. I just need to man up and do them consistently and see if it improves.
