Like JDmalm said, as long as it feels comfortable.

A pulling position lower on the abs might be better for your lower back and might also feel better. But either way is fine, as long as it feels "right" to you.

Default March 11, 2010 - Workout A

Bent Rows: 185lbs. , 1x7 , 1x6 , 1x6 ( added 5 lbs.)

Thanks, I went down on weight for a couple of weeks and worked on my form. I tried barefoot but I didn't like that. I am going to buy me a pair of converse to workout in.

Yes, I do all of my training at home. It is cheaper that way. I save my money and pick weights as I need them or when I see a good deal on craigslist.

Hmm I was considering trying barefoot. Maybe I'll keep an eye out in HK for some good lifting shoes

barefoot, for me makes a difference between making a lift and not. IMO that inch can make a difference

I lifted barefoot during my vacation, and it was much nicer. Back here, they require us to wear closed toes shoes

However, I got some thin soled wrestling shoes and they are pretty good for deads as well, although I like barefoot better. Alternatively, I am told that the five finger slippers are good too. I think the key for deadlifting shoes is thin, flat and hard soles.

Now that your squats are getting heavier, do you find it's harder to do the extra work after, or that your body is adapting and is now better able to handle the work then when you started the program?

The squats feel good. The squats yesterday were heavier and right about parallel. I really felt winded. I really didn't want to do a 3rd set on stiff leg DL after squatting. The calf raises are getting harder also. I do those right after squatting because the weight is already on the bar. My legs actually feel a little sore this morning.

I am going to try and post some videos of 1 or 2 rep maxs here today or tomorrow. I am going to take a week off for spring break and do something with the family and then start a new routine.
