This was a form day. I am in the process of widening my stance to take advantage of my body’s natural leverages. In order for me to improve my numbers I need to do it. I am widening my stance, dropping the bar lower and changing my hand position. Today’s session was experimenting with the new style, tweaking it and adjusting each set per feel.

I discovered a few things. I have zero speed from the hole. 315 is light but in the hole I move about as fast as a turtle, that needs to be addressed. I can go wider with no discomfort given that my toes position is correct and I can lower the bar on my back further than I thought.
