    24 years training. Most of which was spent training for sports. Got serious about being a strength athlete about a year ago, then came up with a whole host of excuses to not train for about the past 6 months. Kind of started outsmarting my common sense and let my training get way too complicated and got frustrated.
    So I'm starting over at the beginning and doing it right this time. Hoping to use SS to reattain the strength I've lost in the past 6 months before progressing.
    Got back in the gym yesterday for the first time in a while (been doing KBs at home, not recommended).

    Tried to use Rip's squat form. At 315 kept trying to revert to power squat so stopped. Will set work weight as 255 for sets across and aim for 5lb jumps

    This is one complicated SOB. About the most uncoordinated I've felt in my life. I'm commited to learning it though..

    Just a note on Rip's squats-

    First time I can remember that my entire quadriceps was sore. Oly squats usually make me sore in the lower thigh. Power squats hit my hips/glutes/hammies. Keeping in mind that I haven't squatted in 6 months.

    Switched from PL bench to flat back/wider grip. Picked 185 at random, probably a bit too light but that's not really a bad thing.
