I really need to work on these. Mostly for me, it is in my head and I am super worried about tweaking my back. I guess that is a good thing and prevents my ego from allowing me to hurt myself. Thanks to MAJ Wylie and Mayo for the coaching and encouragment.

Thanks to Dan for helping me with the form today.

295, 315, 335, 365, 385, 405(f), 405. Back started to curve over 380, but overall not bad. 20lb increase over last PR.

See last time on 6 Jan 09.

Got some good coaching from MAJ Wylie this AM. Still need to work on my starting form, specifically my hip and knee placement.

I really focused on extending my legs at the same time as my back. Also, my first day with the Vibram FiveFingers. They felt really good.

It was a good lift, I tried to focus on my form. I probably could have went higher but would not had good form.

By the way, those video clips were good to watch before I actually attempted the workout.

`62 Room CF Gym= Finished!!!!!!

Installed the spotter straps today. Will be interested to get your feedback on those.

They installed the pull-up bar today. I feel a Flying Fran coming soon....

This should be all of the equipment we have coming in for now.
If you have something that you want to see, post it and we can look into using some of the t-shirt money for it.
