    However, I'll post this still of the best vertical torso'd position I can muster, at right above parallel - higher than the actual bottom position. Notice the bar is already in front of my toes.

    How high are your elbows? You can't see from that angle.

    Beefy calves FTW! Callador suggested if I were an X-Men character, I'd be Collosocalf. I concur.

    edit:

    Which I see you've thought of yourself...
    Ya, the front squats that day were done in my modified 1.1" heel Do-Wins. Pretty high. They're even uglier in my usual 1/2 inchers.

    Just saw this. I don't have a superb rack, but it's adequate (rim shot!). It would be better if not for my massively massive Paul Horn-esque biceps.

    Thanks Gillian and Jenica!

    Smoked 360 and 380, then got a hard fought 400 after initiating the press by pushing towards my feet (WTF?). But I got it. 400 meet bench, in the books.

    Was also a blast spending the day with so many NY-area SS lifters. We do it again tomorrow.
