If you're not having any pain, I'd say keep pulling. I think you're probably over thinking this one. Lifting will always cause some discomfort if you're pushing yourself.

I'm really impressed! Your form looks really good, and you don't have any of the issues I see with most people.

The 185 and 225 at the end are actually the cleanest lifts of the bunch. The box...

I'm sorry man, it wasn't my goal to confuse you. I know we jumped around a little bit.

Do you have any video of your squat? I think some of the pain you're getting could be related to over-arching your lower back. I know I used to have pain in my lower back and hip flexors before I...

Any one have any experience with the Samsung note? I'm probably going to go get one tomorrow. It can do everything I need it to do and it costs 1/2 as much as the ipad mini.
