A COUPLE OF THINGS TO NOTE


This lifters uses the leg pump in the beginning to achieve a stretch reflex, that is
not necessary. If that is not your style simply start on PAGE 4.

This lifter gets slightly out of position on PAGE 10 as the hips and knees are more
extended than the trunk that is easy to happen with heavy weight but because
he maintained his trunk position (slight arch, shoulders back, chest up, chin high)
he was still able to lockout the weight when he reached his sticking point.

THATS IT, NOW GO LIFT SOMETHING HEAVY
