…however, I’m thinking I’m too weak to really start. I could make more progress just using straight weight, but I like the fact that more load is at the top. If you checked out my squat vid, you could see that at the top the weight kind of jumps off my back. Now I know that mean I should hold it too my back harder, but it also means that the weight is light for that part of the movement.
My lift number are: Deadlift-420lbs, Squat-350lbs, Bench-245lbs. Should I just keep using straight weight or could I start using bands? Also, if I should keep using straight weight, how long before I should start using bands/chains?
