    Yup. Don't try and learn 5 chapters of bio the night before the test. This ain't history no more.

    And understood fellas. If Michael Vick can come back from prison and become a top qb again, I can do better on a bio test

    You're at least an inch above parallel. Raw guys do not get a lot of slack on this either as it's easier to see the hip crease.

    10 weeks out is a bit early to start taking openers for a raw guy. You're strength testing when you still should be strength building a bit. It's good to have an idea on what your openers should be, but always remain flexible with them.

    I did some testing Bc I have no idea where my squat is at. I definitely understand what your saying, I was just trying to get a feel for my numbers and see how comfortable I am with 2 plates. The past two weeks I've tested stregnth on all lifts. I won't do it again until the meet. Appreciate the advice like always

    One thing you can do while you're training with Rob, as you're both working up in your warmup sets, you'll get to your work sets sooner. As he continues to work up and do his work sets, drop the weight back down and keep getting sets in. That'll help you get volume and catch up to his numbers sooner.

    Not that what I said had anything to do with anything, I just figured that advice would pay dividends.

    I think if you just slowed the fck down and reset after every rep you could queue yourself to flatten your back at the start. Neutral neck, no hyperextension...

    Good call herder. Smoker, I think you were on to something with not being able to pull your hips back and squeeze your ass checks. Could be mobility that maybe some GMs or RDLs could help with so you know how to. Just a thought. In for more ideas.

    Edit: and a napalm appears. Good point brother.

    Ok, I'll start completely resetting after every rep. That should help me some. And your right, I need neural neck for squats and dead
