    Hi Rip,

    So we have the new bar. Still struggling with coordination even at lighter weights. She isn’t finding it heavy, she is just wobbling all over the place even with the empty bar. It doesn’t get any worse or better with the 20Kg bar. I can’t fix the technique because it’s not a technique issue, she knows exactly what to do and before the ataxia worsened, she was lifting 30 Kg with good form. The safeties are in place, so I’m not concerned for her safety. Do we just persevere with the wobbling mess and move the weight up incrementally ?

    I don't know. I've never trained anyone with a CNS disorder such as this.
