Good work. Hope everything is feeling good.

Only critique is that you raise your hips before the bar leaves the ground. Sink them and find a good leverage point, and instead of trying to pull the bar off the ground, visualize standing up as fast as you can. When we think about standing instead of pulling we will find it easier to keep the hips in a more neutral position.

Also, one the bar is off the ground, and as you are trying to stand, now think about pulling it back towards your body.

Hope this makes sense...stand up, and then pull back towards your body.

Good work all told and I like the extra rep on chins to make it 41, up 1 from last time
Yeah it was pretty busy yesterday , I had found a quiet enough spot and was just about to start when 6 people came in ,
Its not a big gym so that’s enough to make it look crowded ..
Was happy to get in 1 more rep on the pull ups alright , im gonna aim for +1 each session to 50 , then start adding weight

I really liked how each rep tho looked pretty explosive and solid with good speed. Nice work overall Alan!!
Thanks Jim , appreciate the pointer , ill have to fix it asap and catch up with your numbers!

Deadlifts looked strong. I see what you mean, though. Still, better to look butt strong with shitty form than butt weak with shitty form, which is what my deadlift looks like! Once you get it fixed, tell me, so I can get mine fixed too!

I'll be interested seeing that smolov with bench. You and Val will be interesting to see how it goes.

Keep crushing.
Haha , yes I figured out how to use my camera! Old age and all that
Hopefully I can fix it sooner rather than later!

Your overhead strength is always impressive, nice work.

My 2 cents on the deads; you could get away with starting with the bar closer to your shins which will stop you being able to sink your hips so low and you would likely benefit from being a lot tighter off the floor. Take your breath with your hips high and then pull yourself to the bar getting as tight as possible. Just what works for me but might help. You made them look easy anyway.

3/5/1 is really all that works for my push press, so I hope you see some great results with it.
