Oscar Zaydok is off to a bad start

Thank you everyone for making me feel welcome.

I've been nursing a sprained neck and shoulder for the past week making it difficult to train my upper body. The sprain was not caused by lifting. I've been doing light high rep pulldowns and shrugs, stretching, self-massage and applying heat to encourage healing. It's getting better.

It hasn't hindered my lower body training though. I improved my squat by 2.5kg and video filmed my form to make sure my technique is still ok. Comments welcome. As you can see I wear boots. I'm saving up for weightlifting shoes but in the meantime find these boots are helpful in allowing me to squat deeper and more upright than if I were to wear shoes with flat soles. This is the style of squat I prefer.
