I'm fine thanks Steve. Any time you can miss that kind of weight twice without smashing your face or tearing something is a win

Thanks Ravi. I'm back to full health now so hoping for a good squat on Monday.

Here's the video:


Good things:

- Lockouts were smooth off the boards
- Shirt fitted arms and chest nicely and offered a lot of support

Things to improve upon:

- Need to keep the collar a bit higher to touch with 185. Looking at the video it locks up around half board height and after hovering for a while, I end up drifting forward and touching low.
- Stop tucking my elbows forwards so much when I touch. This may be caused by the above but the end effect is it's really hard to get my elbows back around and, as per the 185, I can lose the bar back over my face.

I now have two days off before squatting on Monday. Going to be back in the suit and working up to a straps down PB all things being well.
