Absolutely. I got the impression our sticking point in the Squat was fairly similar from our discussion. I'm hoping the partials or chain work will give us the confidence with heavier weights at lockout.

I pull off blocks actually, and pull from a dead stop each rep. I don't have a problem with doing touch 'n' go per se but it usually means the bar comes up unevenly. So I prefer to let it settle, set my back and pull.

I thought about the partial work, I think I will just take it off pins rather than walking it out and for the deads straight off the blocks. It'll only be the Bench partials I'll do a regular unrack and then press.
