    I posted this as a reply to my previous form check: double lay back press check, but I think I'm supposed to make a new thread instead, so I'm doing that.

    Pete's cue regarding squeezing my arm pits has helped a lot with the first layback. I think I'm getting the hang of it after a few weeks. How is this 7th (of 8, missed the 8th) single at 92kg:



    I know my left side dips a bit, my left shoulder is messed up -- think I'll give up lowbar squats for awhile to give it a chance to heal. Do my knees bend too much? Thanks.

    1) You’re throwing the bar a mile out in front. Aim for a landmark on the far such as the nose or cue yourself to place bar over the shoulders/ears.
    2) The timing is off, let the hips do the majority of the work. Meaning you’re too concerned about when to press on it. If you throw your hips more forward the bar will travel further up and you’ll finish it by merely shrugging. I’d take the weight down 5-10kgs and practice the timing.
