Thanks. I’m 5’6", 175 (compete in the 165lb class), and 29 years old.

you’re the how not to deadlift guy!! I was showing my buddy that and making fun of you a couple days ago. You’ve really transformed your lifting since that video was made

Thanks. It took a while, but once the correct form was ingrained a few years ago (around 2008), I’ve been constantly improving.

That is a great transformation to see. And congrats for the mention on PL Watch.

Nice lifting. How do you like the Sheiko CMS?

Thanks. It can be brutal and very fatiguing, but I’m getting through it.

165! that’s awesome, a 1500 raw total is not out of reach for you

I can feel a 600 lb. pull coming soon for you.

Congrats on your lifts. How do you feel about your squat form and your weak points in the squat?

Thanks, but 1500 is going to be quite a while from now.

Thanks, man. I think I’ll pull 600 at Raw Unity in February, the meet after my upcoming one, next month, when I pull 585, like in this video.

I think the way that I squat works for me because I have a very strong back, which means that I can handle the forward lean of my torso. Also, I think the combination of low bar position and long legs results in that type of squat, naturally. I have long arms, long legs, and a short torso.

Do you do anything in particular to keep your shoulders healthy enough for that kind of low bar squat?

No, and I never had any shoulder pain from squats.
