Thanks, man! I only used the belt to see my arch better, keep the t shirt out of the way. It does help in that it reminds me to keep a belly breath. So, I think all the setup parts are fine, just need more practice, and I'll work on getting more up on my traps, and I won't worry about the bar path (I thought I had to be straighter because whenever I fail it's when the bar is over my face, i thought there was a connection). Also, I didn't think I got much if any leg drive other then better tightness.

ANyway, more practice. I can get the hang of this. It does feel much better on my shoulders, so that's good.

Thanks for all the help, everyone!

Hack away at anything which isn't essential. Do what you love, and do it often. Fazc.

Everything competes for recovery so more assistance is not always the best idea. miked96
