Starting Strength Day 10, 10-22-08

Squat 3 x 5 - 185lbs 
Press 3 x 5 - 80lbs
Power Cleans 5 x 3 - 115lbs

HERE is video of 2 out of the 3 sets of squats.

Felt good today.  I read a few articles of "Keys to Progress" by John McCallum throughout the day.  I love his writing style.  Such a hilarious guy and has some really classic lines in there about lifting.  If you haven't read it and are doing the Starting Strength thing, look into it.  Its definitely a book about getting big and strong with much more of an emphasis on bodybuilding then I prefer, but is great nonetheless. The book is worth it just for the way he describes big strong guys and the insulting descriptions of skinny little guys who don't train.  Classic stuff.

your squat has definitely gotten better since you came to VA to visit. your back has a lot less round in it at the bottom. some reps are deeper and better than others, but it takes time to really get that groove where you bounce out of the bottom at the same spot every time. it was hard to tell by looking at you in the cage, but you could probably widen your stance a little more. we'll talk more live. good job.
