    Film from more of a 45 degree angle next time, I'd like to see your stance. Along with what Rip said, you still need to fix the grip and the upper...

    Yeah, so as you've come to realize, the training maturity designations have nothing to do with weight on the bar. It's how quickly you can adapt and...

    Well, I'm glad you're out of the running shoes. These moved well, but you're going way too deep. Cut the depth off so the crease of the hip is...
