What worries me about that Roger is that I cant touch with a decent groove. Orginally the plan was to take 675, but worry that I cant get it down. Even with the collar as high as I can keep it, 650 to the 2board is a bear! Guess I should try to touch consistantly at 675 over the next 3 weeks?
EDIT: This is what I worked out: 675, 710, 750. I have to have at least 675 to get to my total, really anything after that is just extra. I am also considering only taking 2 attempts in the squat. Maybe 950 then 1005?
