One thing I've seen and recommended is putting a 2.5er underneath your toes. Should give you feedback on whether your heel is lifting or not.

I personally like chucks for lifting

adding Mark to the list of people in this thread who can squat.

3 minor points to focus on
- try to push your knees out a bit more (that's outwards, not forwards). a few goblet squats beforehand will work magic here.
- yeah your heel might be coming off the ground a little bit. Easy fix is to make sure you're pushing through your heels. It's just something you have to concentrate on for a little while.
- keep your chin up more at the bottom of the lift

lifting feels are the best feels

Anyones knees creak often? Feels as if their is liquid in there; they make a sound at full extension, no pain though.

Interesting thing I've noticed:

At work I've been using my own blood as a sorta kinda control/background test against a family with a genetic thrombocytopenia. I'm basically just using it to figure out how I'm going to set up an experiment.

Anyway, after I take my blood I spin it down to get the platelet rich plasma. Since getting back into training in the past 3 months, I've noticed a massive increase in my haematocrit. It's gone from roughly 40% to what looks like 60-70%. Is it a natural increase due to the effects of testosterone? anyway, it's pretty scarily high now...slightly worrying.

Trying to find a pair of tapered jeans with starting strength thighs is a mindfuck. I should really just switch to another program. Or wear sweatpants every day.

Buy jeans that fit you in the thighs, spend $15 to taper legs, simple.

^I gave up entirely on denim. Don't own a single pair anymore. I was a denimbro before ss

Picked up an amnesty international girl, will send pics to trusted rhet brahs who won't detective me. Was hilarious because she kept talking to me about how much she cares about NGOs and helping with teh poverty people and I was like yah I want to work for goldman. Told me she loves her job because she gets to meet amazing people like me (lol) and then asked if I wanted to take her for a drink. Will hit with the fury of a norse god. Also hit a chin up PR of 22 reps.

This is what happens when you lift. But I'm noticing your estrogen levels rising as I continued reading your post.
