    I offer counselling, too. In between sets they talk about their problems. I give them just enough counselling for them to be able to complete the next set. They might go home and drink away their sorrows, but they get the sets done first.

    Yup, the pacing in that video is correct, though I would not recommend using the form demonstrated. Again - note how the bar is returned to the floor. All of y'all make yours look more like that when you put it down.

    Dear coaches, i implemented the tips given here, which allowed me to improve from 5 90kg (198lbs) singles with dizzyness to a set of 5 x 115kg (253lbs) without any dizzyness, thank you!

    I' d like to have my form checked again please.
    I *think* my back is straight/extended enough and i try to not let the hips rise before the chest...
    I do see however that on a few reps i look upwards, should be downwards. I also feel my back is very parallel to the ground, but when i set up as described in the book there is no way i can arch my back further up without dropping my hips, which is not allowed... Is my back to floor angle ok, or can i drop a little?

    oh, and i swear some decent lifting shoes are next on my shopping list, and the bad lighting conditions for the video are due to us being in the middle of renovating the house/garage!

    It looks like your video has been removed.

    I have a similar problem to this. I own a house, but I have a tenant in the basement (my gym is on the main level). Dropping power cleans under control/lowering deadlifts under control seemed to make the ceiling joists flex, and crack the sheetrock on the basement ceiling (not sure which of those 2 caused it)... I have since been treating my gym floor like a fine china.

    Once he moves out I'm moving my gym into the basement where he currently resides. The only annoying thing will be pressing. I'm going to have to cut out a hole in the sheetrock where I press, and press the plates between the ceiling joists.
