    No kidding! I lost track so it could have been a bit more than that. I had to sit down and rest for like 5 min after front squats and then continued onto the rest of the workout.

    Kix ass. I see what you did there. Well it's somewhat of a far drive to get there. That area is less beachy, more rocky.

    Front squats kill me... i have a harder time keeping the weight on my shoulders then squatting though --- even using the wrist wrap method...

    I know what you mean huggy! It can be discouraging at times. And I'm not even pushing max weight yet like you! I'm going to keep the weights moderate for now. I'm just thankful I can still squat relatively pain free at this point.

    Good thing you had a cage! And isnt it typical to go lighter on front squats anyway?

    It is! Once the weight gets heavy I feel the need to switch to crossed arms, but have to be more careful the bar doesn't slip. I had that problem the other day because I was wearing a tank top. I could probably do 1-2 heavy reps with snatch grip, but no more than that.

    Sorry, I guess the "breathe deep into your balls" part is N/A to some members of the targeted audience...I like his informative and humorous nature. Just thought the part about the different grip for front squat would be beneficial. Holler!

    I still do. Metaphorically speaking.

    Yeah, he's good! He's got another channel with rants and raves and philosophical stuff. Those are interesting too. Hollah back!

    Killer body. Something about that voice though. Must be something in the Brazilian water. I like Erin Stern's physique.
