    If there is a LLD, he's still going to have to do the above process, even if the shim corrects the LLD. The movement pattern is the problem now, not the LLD, which may or may not have started it.


    Iíve been working on cueing a shift to the left, hoping this footage shows some progress. (On vacation this week so had to make due on the footage in a gym down here where Iím staying)

    Does this look like progress? I read Ripís article on the leg length discrepancy. Now Iím wondering 1.) what my first steps should be in getting the LLD checked/addressed. (If any) A lifter friend has recommended a chiropractor near where I live that works with powerlifters and am considering calling them to get checked out 2.) is the cue to shift left working? Should I continue to add weight and keep progressing before I can get shoes/shims?

    Thanks very much.

    Back up to 255 today, and got 250 for 3 sets of 5 on my last lift. Having a hard time concentrating on cueing the hip to the left, especially on my last reps. Or am just not strong enough to force my hips to center once I reached 250.

    Worth mentioning that I have totally flat/pronating feet. Saving for squat shoes. Would arch supports help? This is frustrating but Iím committed to figuring it out.
    Everything else seems to be going well. Eating a ton, tracking all nutrition. Upping my calories this week. Gaining weight, other numbers increasing fairly well. Do I need to drop the weight to 240 til I can get 3 clean looking sets of 5 and then add weight?
