-thanks commander, regarding the PM, I think my stance went wide subconsciously, as i used to make my shins bleed in the gym..i didnt even realize i was this wide until the video, also, i feel i can keep my back straighter that way...ill make it a point to go more conventional next time and see how it feels!!

Whatever works, I actually got to thinking about the PM after I sent it. I realized that even though your pull was unconventional, if it works, go for it. I totally understand the rationale of trying to find a position that helps you keep your back straighter.

For you the wide stance helps, for me, it might actually be a wide grip that helps my back, I was thinking about when I lift with a snatch grip, I feel like my back stays tighter, but of course, a snatch grip increases the ROM, so it is a give and take in terms of pros and cons.

honestly, I don't think your form was off, I went back and looked at your 240 DE video and your form was good. I think 375 is just getting close to a 1 rep max so naturally it isn't going to be as pretty.

SMOLOV starts monday! still deciding what kind of upper body work I'll do. im thinking about benching on mondays w/ some sort of periodization (hvy, hyper, de rotation) for maintenance then maybe some shoulder pressess on friday or something...i would also like to incorporate cgbp, dips, and pullups/chins when possible...however my main focus will be squatting
