Awesome stuff lately Brute! Big squat, big bench, Humongous rows, 800 rack pull!?! Goodness. Good stuff.

Just a thought on that squat. I'm not sure it's you actually leaning forward, I think your middle and upper back are rounded a bit.

If you can drive your shoulders back into the bar and keep a straighter mid back on the way up, it might clear up that lean right there. Not an expert, just something I think might help. Squats are still a work in progress for me too. I think squats are pretty much a work in progress for everybody.

You can't move that Brute press to another day? Seems you'll always struggle with any press after benching.

Nice weight loss!

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
