    Oh so weak at chins. I just got my stolen rubberband replaced with a new one. Have not tried chins in a long time, my own fault.
    Squat and press works fine.

    Good luck with your boat.

    Do you have any lifting goals before your birthday?

    Manual labor has sure made many people strong too.

    Thanks Fred
    Boatday was a tuff one. 10 hours of manual labour with continous raining. Goals are just continue three days a week LP. Maybe I try high bar squat, just to be able to make it to my first competition if I dare to sometime in the future. For now and forward its important to stay corona free.
    My long term goals is a new pr at 330lbs DL
    Over 180lbs in bench and over 120lbs in press
    Squat a new pr over 260lbs
    That may or may not happen during the next two years.

    Learning to high bar squat, two reasons. Plan to try a meet in the future, and my low bar squat is with straps. And I can use it as a light day squat.

    Hurley suggested the following for me and it has worked so far..

I don't have shoulder problems from the squat, but it is difficult to get them loosened up enough to get the bar low enough on my back and get my wrists set up better. My own solution was finding some squat supports I could move in closer than the standard power rack widths would allow my hands to go.
    I am able to do low bar squats being very careful with the shoulders by being very careful getting in and out of position. While squatting I do not notice any problems with the shoulders at this time.

    Hope this helps!

    Yes, i think I read that one, I think my problem is twofold with the shoulders, also think its my upper back thats rounding. My dad had the same problem. I think its called kyophis, or something similar. I tried for about a year or two really hard. Then I stopped trying. Its so much easier to do low bar with straps. My pr is 120kgx1 with straps, no problem, the bar sits just fine on the back, below the spine of the scapula. It was Carl Raghavan that made me try the straps. He was here in Stockholm and coached me and my son, great coach!
