Solid back destruction Alan - especially the finisher with pull ups.

I have never done "Waist" high pulls either.

Good to see you back at it.

Thought I'd answer here to make it easier for you to find.

I've only just gotten back into squatting with the oly shoes, all my best lifts are in flat bottom wrestling boots. I stopped using them as with heavier weight I found myself getting forward with my knees coming forward/in and weight on my toes which started to wear on my knees.

Since then I've changed quite a lot about my squat and with the injury limiting numbers anyway I thought I'd give them another run. So far, I really like squatting in them, they just take some adjustment. Form feels solid this time, relatively upright back, especially for low bar and knees out comfortably. I'm interested to see if I still feel the same when I get back up to 1-3RM range.

So, to sum up that rambling, I think they are a benefit but I'll confirm in about 4-6 months .

Start with the bar on the ground like you were going to do a power clean. Your only goal here is to clean the weight above your waist. Like this, but only to waist level:

JT, thanks a million for taking the time to answer this.
I asked because I recently switched over to these shoes and after I hurt my knee I did wonder if the switch contributed in some small way to it.
I found on the day I hurt my knee that I noticed my knees coming in and my weight shifting forward to my toes as I was doing sets of 3RM.
Interesting that you found the same thing happening to you,
Looks like ill have to be watching this like a hawk for the next while.

I think ill stick with them for another while and see how things pan out too.

Thanks again.

I really liked the 137.5 triple Alan. I like how you get into position effortlessly and quickly, get set, and then have really nice speed. It simply looked very well executed from my viewpoint. Depth also looked solid.

Also pleased to hear knee is OK after them. Nice volume on the bench as well.
