    I think as close as possible, then its easier to push the back of the shoulders against the bar for contact. Whats your thinkin, is the bar resting proper on the back?
    So far I don't think I have the bar position quite correct yet. I don't feel the same groove to set the bar in. I will work on it as it did away with shoulder pain and for that I am grateful. It is going to work for me.

    Squat
    .bar-5
    ..70-5
    120-3
    175-3
    175-3

    All deeper with slings set at 4" from bar. Moved slings out to center of groove in knurling resulting in rear delts giving a better location on back.

    When I saw a big guy on youtube put the bar in the low position, and squat down and up without hands on the bar, you know, below the spine of the scapula resting on the posterior deltoids, I realized I also must have a similar spot, took some time to find it, but now its there.

    Soon you squat more than you bench.

    I guess it's a fine line between too long or too soon between lifts. The popular thought is you loose strength after 96 hours, but some things I read say otherwise. I do some grip training and find less often does work best.

    Thanks. Shoulder seems ok. The new squat slings have stopped one of the main things aggravating it besides sleeping on it. (side sleeper)

    What's the continual nag is right above my right elbow. After the last bench workout it felt fine until I hurt it three different times pushing myself up when working in the garage. One time it hurt really bad. After ten days off today it felt ok until the 1st rep of the second warm up set.

    I listened to Sulley live yesterday and he said the same thing about masters loosing strength if they don't do a heavy set once a week.

    Not sure about the 96 hours but I think if you hit something that's heavy once a week it should suffice particularly if you can still progress. I think after a point I will try heavy/light each week.

    Everybody's different to some degree.

    starting strength coach development program
    3-4-21 Thursday

    Bench
    .bar-10
    ..70-5
    120-5
    150-3
    180-2

    Rows
    70-5

    Felt ok with no elbow pain. I hurt my back last week making getting up and down a bitch. It will pass.
    Anyway I got a new squat stand that I am going to enjoy. Getting setup under the bar was different as I found out today but should be good to go next workout. I had to level one corner that was making one upright lean forward and that threw me off benching today. Floor was not level.
