  23. Wow, those are some low Rack Deads. Nice work.

    It's good to see you have your diet dialed in. I'm so much more habitual with mine, and I feel I need to become more steadfast in my portions and timing.

    Looking good, liking the program.

    Yeah they are pretty low....but damn, I feel like my arms are so long that if I pull from knee level I only get a few inches of movement it seems. I am going to play with the height and start raising the bar and upping the weight...then start low again but with more weight...all about progression!!

  25. Yeah I know what you mean.. I'm 6'3" with long limbs and the range of motion on racks at knee level seems almost like a cheat.

    You are certainly progressing.
