    Default double lay back press check

    I feel weaker with the first layback than without it -- is there anything I'm doing wrong or do I just need more practice? This is a failed set of 5 at 192lbs.


    Thanks.

    See if you can get your arms tighter to your body on the setup for each rep. Squeeze your arms pits and mash your triceps against your lats.

    Thanks for the feedback, I think that might solve it for me since I probably not being rigid enough for the force transfer.

    I'm having another issue with these that I forgot to mention: Every time I've done the double layback I will get a headache after training. I think I must be partially holding the valsalva in my mouth. Never had that issue on the other lifts, though.

    Pete -- your cues have been very helpful over the last few weeks of practice. I think I'm getting the hang of it. How does this look (7th out of 8 singles @ 92kg. Missed the 8th):

    I know the left side dips a bit, but that shoulder is messed up. Do my knees bend too much?

    Thanks.
