    So first day of squats in chucks....

    Was able to match current barefoot max, and went down 1 rep on 3 plate max for reps. Overall, it wasn't bad. The max felt a little heavier than last time -- but so many variables go into play that it's hard to say if the shoes made a difference or not.

    Thanks man.

    I prefer to squat oly (straight down) though, because that has better carryover to track. Basically I just stand slightly over shoulder width and toe at 15 degree pointed outwards.

    @ conceptionist: That's one of the squat racks in the uni gym, as you can kinda of see, pretty spacious and lots of oly bars.

    You can't do 1RM cleans though. The floor isn't built to take that kind of punishment.

    Exactly.

    Also, I discovered the joys of mobility training yesterday. So this is how normal hamstrings should feel like....

    Nice! Help me with my bench, whats a good movement if you get stuck at the middle of the bench. Bottom and lockout are good.

    I think we have the same issue with our bench. Chariy and I went back and forth a bit on this a few days ago - he recommended board or pin presses.

    Not necessarily, but I object to your blanket claim that oly squatting with a neutral spine is impossible. I have no idea what's going on with this guy's back, since I can't see from this angle. I am sure that there are many many people out there squatting like this with lumbar flexion. Squatting ass-to-ankles with a high bar might make it harder to keep a neutral spine, but that doesn't mean it's impossible. There's nothing structural that necessarily makes this a bad position, it just requires greater flexibility and core strength.
