    Ah, ok. I don't hardly ever use the belt so I wouldn't know what's normal with it.

    Good job. Any reason you're wearing your belt so high?

    Yep, although Ed Coan did say to "fight the bar up" with the back, so this might be build dependent and he was perhaps referring to a mostly isometric tension (as with the hamstrings in the...

    Today I'm going to try low bar and a relatively wide stance. That seems like it would be right for my skeletal frame but we'll see.

    I've got some decent strength in the hams and glutes, but my...

    Well, I mean the angle itself of the back relative to horizontal with the hips, not arching or losing tightness.

    That Ed Coan squat video that Wolf quoted has him elaborating back extension as a legitimate part of the lift; not to the extent of a full good morning, of course, but I'm curious how you regard it,...

    Let's hope it is mostly a matter of acclimating to technical changes. Relearning the lift and making more use of the legs should transfer some of the difficulty and help me get past the previous...

    Alright guys, lackluster and disappointing workout today. Went for 495 again on the deadlift and 315 on the bench. Mindful of all the aforementioned pointers, prepped, well-fed, and coming off of 3...

    That squat is impressive. I'm still getting the form down and have yet to challenge myself seriously with it, but hopefully the encouragement still does you some good.
