    I do have very tight hips, but I do a lot of hip stretches and haven't been able to get them to improve.

    Wider than your feet.

    The challenge of short arms is to get low enough to grab the bar while keeping your shins perpendicular to the ground. To do this, you have to get your knees wider than your feet as you descend, similar to how you'd squat (though obviously hips should stay up higher). This is hard to do without good hip mobility. Someone had mentioned needing to take a step back from the bar in order to get low enough, I suspect this is because his knees were coming forward rather than going out. This causes his shins to hit the bar. Knees wider than feet solves this.

    If I get 74g of 220g protein from two whey shakes, am I relying to much on whey? It's 30g of whey per shake. They don't really feel like 500 calories. Feel like I'm cheating.

    How old are you? The older you get the harder it is to correct mobility problems, no doubt.

    Have you ever checked out mobilitywod.com? Kelly Starrett is a...character, and a lot of people have a hard time with him, but he's a pretty fantastic resource and the videos show a number of mobility exercises that most people haven't seen before. It's searchable as well. I'd check out some of his hip mobility protocols. They helped me a lot.

    for myself i feel like it would be too much. given how quickly whey digests that 74g isn't the same 74g you'd be getting from cottage cheese/meat. i'm on the no-shakes bandwagon and its been working great for me so far - my advice would be first of all to roll with your 2 shakes for now the sake of maintaining your intake and then try to add in better protein sources as you are able. spend that whey money on food instead. fwiw i didn't notice any specific big chunk of meat/protein source on that list - a good rule of thumb to remember is that 8oz of most whole cuts of meat = 60g protein.

    Well, you're a smart guy and have been doing this a long time. When I'm overtrained, my DL and Squat feel chaotic and impossible. Same deal?

    Do you have satiety problems? Are you ever hungry? IMO you should focus on "real" food which is more nutritious and only take whey if you're having trouble eating all your protein (though TBH I take a shake on lifting days simply out of convenience).

    Otherwise it's not a problem IIFYM.

    Crossfit not even once lol. I love seeing crossfit transformation photos. It works amazingly for women, not at all for men. 1 year and $1500 later, the dudes have gone from like 20% BF down to 15% and gained maybe 5 pounds of muscle.
