      Had a MONSTER last 2 weeks

      highlights:
      bench 345x4
      bench 315x9
      squat 525x3

      Deadlifts are sucking but I'm working on it. I'll take some vids for PR's in the upcoming week.

      Making progress in mostly everything. Low rep bench and my deadlifts kind of stalled so I'm going to back that down for 2-3 weeks.

      Yeah you should always be pushing off your heels. Problem is with shoes that lean your feet forward (oly shoes) it makes this more difficult. Especially if you squat low bar and wide, because you're...

      If you squat with a wide stance with your toes pointed outwards, the raised heels make you knees track poorly and leans you too far forward. If you squat narrow stance then I would agree.

      squatting with no shoes on is ok, depends on what kind of shoes you're used to using for the impact to noticed.

      dead lifting without shoes on is always superior.

      435x5 on squats today. W/Wraps

      Pretty easy, fully expect a 445x5 next week.

      Lost most of the fat I had gained so I'm right back to 195-198.

      500 for triples again in no time! :rolleyes:

      Numbers are slowly coming back. Should be in the 500's on deadlift here in a month or two. So frustrating to take time off
