    Great workout today. Best single on deads in a while. I gotta squeeze the glutes at the top instead of just throwing my hips forward, caused me to bend the knees at lock out on 395. 440 was solid though. 245x5 might be a beltless PR on front squats idk.

    thanks man, yeah i tried pulling in flat shoes, went right back to my olys.. knees are coming forward past the bar, so im not completely stiffying em, I think I'll always be higher hipped in pulling.. to be honest for right now ill take that 440, my form i think was better than it has been just need to tweak here and there.

    The form and hip height is fine. I would like to see a little flatter lumbar though. Looks like you're really letting the pelvis rotate back. Get your low back an lats tighter when you grab that bar.

    I'll post a good link on deadlift form when I get on the computer layer.

    Great workout today. Almost had 3 reps at 180 just couldn't get my head thru, so i just racked it. first two reps were pretty easy, just technique break down. the squat rack at this gym has a fixed lower safety bar, which is right at about the bottom of my floor press, which really sucks. so its kinda like tris hit the ground then back up, couldnt really have the elbows hit. going right into cycle 17 without a deload, took a lot of time off during this cycle for vegas/chicago.

    Great workout today. Legs are already feeling it, the prowler tore me up a bit, only did it like 5 times too. looking forward to working with it more on deadlift day. i dont think my squat depth was that great today, but form felt good and 340 moved real good. went heavy on RDLs, i used straps on my last set hands were just real sweaty and didnt want to use chalk. i'll probably bench sunday, so i dont have to deal with international bench press day monday lol.

    thanks guys, for me it all boils down to keeping the elbows forward, the lats tight, and the knees out. when i do those things right my squats go pretty well.

    thanks bud. yeah my pressing is starting to get stronger, slowly but surely. my incline strength is improving quickly which has to be a good sign, I've never been strong at incline pressing.
