Squat 3 - Up the weight again, have every scream at me to weight. Finally get whites.
Practice, practice, PRACTICE!
Hahaha yeah I can see ALL of that happening to me!. Will definitely be practicing with the commands! Hopefully I can have a "partner" at the meet with me to also help with the cues. Like yelling squat when I hit depth, yelling hold it after pressing so I don't rack before the command, things like that. I noticed those things at the meet a couple of weeks ago and thought they were very helpful.
