RE: Goals for Feb 28 Meet
tbowman - I seen that you mentioned you have a problem (weakness) lately getting the weight off the floor in the deadlift. It's DEFINATELY your legs that are making it so hard off the floor. I had the exact same problem. You need to start front squatting and doing all squatting movements with your back as straight as possible to minimize lower back involvement. Even if it requires dropping the poundages for a while who cares, what you need is to get that leg strength up and you are not helping the problem if you are practically doing a goodmorning on your squats (like your coach said)
If you get your leg strength up i guarentee that initial pull from the floor will not be as difficult as it is now.
