I passed my first milestone today!
 
I went for 200 today. I was feeling pretty motivated so I tried my 225 for reps goal first. I did 225 for 2, and video'd it. It was sloppy my right arm was dipping badly. That's weird because my right side is stronger than my left. I wondered if that actually might be the reason. Maybe I'm pulling into my scapula stronger with my right than my left? I tried it one more time for 1 and tried to fix it. It was still sloppy, so I dropped down to 205 and nailed two more sets of 3! I've broken through 200 for reps!

One cool thing; as soon as I racked my last set of three @ 205, "I will be heard" by Hatebreed started playing on my IPod. It was just like one of those "Ok, Now shits changing" scenes from a movie

I couldn't figure out how to post a video, I have the sloppy 225 video if anyone wants to look at it and critique it.

Congratulations on hitting 225 for reps.

Hard to say. You could have lost tightness anywhere on that right side, or had an uneven setup. I would just keep working on form and ignore it unless it happens consistently.

Near max work form can slip. That's not unusual.

If it's Youtube just drop the link in a post. It will auto-embed.

It's not on youtube, it's off my iPad. There's no way to attach video other than youtube?

Thank you everyone, I was on cloud 9 all the way home. I feel fricking great. I see 300 there in the distance. I'm going to try and hit that by April.
