    I took the feedback from my last post and tried to make adjustments to my squat. I donít know that I did it very well. My low back got really tight after this last set but is good now.

    My bench looks like my elbows move forward instead of down to my side. As weight increases I really start to feel a lot of tension in both shoulders. If I am correct on my elbows, how do I fix this? Any feedback I can get is greatly appreciated. Thank you!

    You apparently have not read the book, where both squat depth and elbows in the bench are explained in detail.

    Is my squat depth fixed here? Would there be any other recommendations other than a belt?

    Look down man. You got a little orange flange or knob or whatever right on the floor at the perfect spot. Look at that for the duration of the rep.
