Re-learning my form

Since I have decided to be a gear whore, I am in the process of re-learning my form in the bench and squat so I can make a seamless transition (or somewhat seamless) to using multi-ply gear.

Raw lifting and geared lifting are two different animals and if anyone tells you they aren’t, they are full of shit.

So I am pushing my feet out and tightening myself up so I can prep myself for the day when my briefs arrive.

165 x 2 x 5
235 x 3
285 x 3
335 x 2
395 x 5 x 2

Kept the weight low today just to get the form ironed down.  I expect a month of work like this to make this a new habit.

315 x 3 x 2

Had to bail and head home after this, accessory work will be done late tomorrow night.

After talking with the rest of the lifters I need to shore up some areas in order to get my squat up so I am readjusting my accessory work and tweaking the program to fill my needs.
