    For reference: Previous session 320x5x3, 2/2/20, Rip told me to narrow my stance.
    Set 3 from last session
    Today 325x5x3 + 1 failed set, 2/4/20, I promise it is only paint.
    Set 3
    Set 3 fail on rep 3 what I think happened: cervical extension->start to raise chest and not hips?
    Set 2
    Set 1
    Today 405X3, failure on floor of rep 4. Barely restrained rage. Down from 425x5 on 1/19/20. Sorry for shitty contrast b/c of black sweats.
    405x3, fail on 4
    Thanks for the help,

    Squat: you need to shove your knees out harder and do a better job at keeping them out. Also, your head is all over the place — Pick a spot approx 6 ft in front of you on the floor and stare at it. You are correct about that killing your hip drive. Invest in some squat shoes and maybe a pair of shorts that don’t look like they’re splooged on.

    Deadlift: hard to see, but it looks like you could set your low back better. This is likely a result of the too narrow grip preventing you from getting your knees out a bit and allowing you to shove the belly down between aforementioned knees. Lock that bar in with your lats and drag it up your legs.

    Squat stance is still too wide.
