    Also, am i the only one that hates barbell rows? I don't know why but i just don't like it as a movement at all. It seems so unnatural. Dumbell rows are fine but i cant do barbell rows.
    I got to 50kg (i'm a novice still) and i was using so much momentum it was ridiculous, so i just changed from SL5x5 to SS after this as it was getting stupid.

    Exact opposite. DB rows I can never get the form right. Barbells a sinch, use overhand though. Underhand does seem kinda ****ed.

    That's when you reset, and start working up again, until once more your form goes.

    I love barbell rows, explosive and great for upper back development.

    Tips on getting things done?

    I have **** loads of deadlines coming up. I know how important they are but I can't focus. Can't go to a library as there are none nearby. What do?

    Toes out for squatting. Mine are probably about 25-30% out. And my knees track straight over my foot as I squat. I don't know how you could do that with feet facing completely forward. Most of the people that advocate toes forward when squatting are insane geared powerlifters, usually West Side. The idea being that with your toes forward, your knee will twist and hold a bit elastic tension which may help out of the hole. But I prefer to keep my own knees into old age, so I keep my knees in-line with my feet/toes when I squat.

    Bear in mind I know basically nothing about equipped lifting, but what I didn't get about that was how one of the main guys (Scott Cartright?) had bombed on the squat for like 3 meets in a row. Just take a lower weight for your opener, surely? If I'd bombed 2 meets in a row I'd be sure as hell to take a weight I'd smoke for my opener 3rd time around.

    Was his opener the issue? I thought the issue was his 2nd/3rd lift. In any case, I think it's just ego right? He's a bit crazy as well and I doubt he'd ever want to go lower.

    Also, what about the first guy to squat 1000lbs? That was amazing. First time he passes out. He tries again. Most people would stop right there. Second time the clip comes off and the bar flips. The few who would even try it again would probably stop now as it must seem like fate not to get it. Only a madman would try it for a 3rd time - and smoke it.

    I'm 90kg lean (6ft 4) but still not even close to a BW squat after 3 months of lifting (Probably atleast 25 squat sessions too). Am I just being a pussy and should I be more aggressive or what? Heard people say you should be able to walk into a gym untrained and squat BW :s
