However, that mule kick device is also sounding interesting. Maybe do them after Donkey Squats!
It appeared to me Devan is not pushing his knees <> as ge descends. This is a key part of creating a hole to sink into. I also think it's one of the toughest parts of the squat to learn and to do it consistently. Cue is of course to spread the floor.
Nice too see a post from you at any rate!
It is actually a pretty legit machine, I used it just cause I've never seen one. Also I have pretty strong tibialis anterior from all the walking in the army, I never get shin splits, so I kinda wanted to see if I could move some real weight on it. I'll definitely relay that to Devan, I was going to mention it today, but I forgot.

Was really working on controlling the weight and working the intended muscles. My training partner really helps keep me in check if I start just trying to throw the weight around. It's nice to be reminded that the numbers don't really matter unless you are a competitive powerlifter. My main goal is size and physique, yet I always get caught up with the weight, so it helps me stay focused on my goals for sure. Once I cut though, I will train purely for strength and conditioning.
