    Similar to these shoes not as much tread on bottom though
    Yes, and those are very bad for lower body work. Very unstable.

    Ok I'll have to look into something better, with all the leg problems I have I probably should start with the right footwear

  3. I am no pro... But, you need flat sole shoes and by chucks I think he ment..

    Old school converse for $35-40 bucks. Flat, little to no grip or cushion inside. Almost like being barefoot. Or even crap skippies (tennis shoes) that you used to see in the 80-90's flicks/tv shows. If you look at the first rocky movie he's running around and training in chucks.

    This show situation is blowin my mind! I always bought fancy expensive shoes... Looks like all I needed was some converses haha

  5. Just my 2 cents... I do squats and deadlift's in a $5 pair of vans that are flat bottomed with a very thin sole, maybe 1/4 inch. I've had similar knee issues. Not rugby related, more-so genetics, but I've had knee surgery and just in general have ****ty knees. I've been doing 5/3/1 for about a year now and I love it. I had to check my ego and try to follow it very strictly but my lifts have all slowly but surely increased. Even my squats which I had pretty much given up on lol. Best of luck OP.

    Damn, I could never find a sick deal on converse or vans. I got mine for 12 bucks from H&M. They always have these fairy type tennis style shoes from the 90's for men. I end up getting a couple when I see them for the gym. Mine are always dogged cause the gym floor is mopped once a year.

    Good luck, Mitch!

  7. Thank you all for the advice, I started 5/3/1 today and checked my ego for sure. Started 90% of my 90% 1RM for DL.

    Side note: could not get a squat video done yet, but will try again and post

    This is part of the point I was trying to make about the coaches that oversaw your training. They obviously were not doing they're jobs.
