    Few small PRs in training the past few weeks. Feels good to be getting back to near PR shape after about 6 months of stalled progress.

    195kg back squat PR. Did this twice because I thought I loaded 200kg on the 2nd try but messed up the math while using kilo and lb plates. Also a terrible change plate loading, I know.



    121kg training snatch PR. 2kg less than my comp PR still. Also hit 120kg with straps 2 weeks before this.

    Why do you use such a narrow stance on your back squat?

    It's just what I've done for a while, although that video does look a little more narrow than usual. Here's another angle from a different day, not much wider but maybe a small amount: https://www.instagram.com/p/Bnw1RDsB2u1/

    I have tried widening it some but always was uncomfortable with it. Probably just need to give it time really but never committed to making the change. Back squat has always been something I can't quite figure out. The last few months I worked on slowing down my descent slightly and controlling the weight more, but hadn't thought about stance at all.

    Yeah that video looks slightly wider, but still very narrow. In my opinion you're probably leaving kilos off of the bar because of it. Changing is probably definitely going to feel weird, you're not a new lifter by any means so your habits are well established. But I always tell my athletes, I don't really care if it it "feels" right or not, if you lift more weight, and you're not in pain, it's just the way it is.

    It's not like you don't have the hip mobility for it, you receive your snatches significantly wider than you squat.

    Very true, I'll have to make that something I concentrate on as I do back squats next. Thanks for the tips, always helps since I don't have a coach now.

    I also benched 65/5 last night with no pain which is a boon since #105 made my shoulder feel like it was gonna tear awhile back.

    Benched #170/5? in 2016 with lsus but quit it bc irritated shoulder and. wrist

    Congrats. If I can fix this broken hand and my injured back, you’ve given me some numbers to shoot for at master’s worlds. Congrats again.
