So are you saying that in order to hit depth you need to wear socks with pom poms on them?? At least now I know where I've been going wrong!
Pompoms will actually help you know if you are high, or not. If you listen carefully, they will talk to you. Let me know if you need more information on this VERY important subject.
On a more serial note, the coach saw them and said he could see USAPL refs questioning their legality. Because, ya know, pompoms add 70lbs to a squat.
