    Training is right on par for 903 on 12/2. Cycle called for a single @ 80%, took it without my suit. Feelin real strong. I should be good in about two weeks to get my suit over my briefs. Big movements today went 672x1, 722x0, 722x1, and an overload with 848x1 Reverse Band High Box. Set up was all wrong on my first 722 attempt.... I basically GM'd the weight out then on the way down I came way forward and my belt lever popped (had the belt on loose, forgot to tighten the screws). Fixed everything for the 2nd attempt.

    It's hard to tell because of the people standing in the way and the darkness of the area where you hip is, but did you hit parallel on the 722?

    yeah I forgot to edit that in... I was "parathereabouts" as the saying goes. gotta remember I have huge legs, specifically hammies. my quad might look like its angled, but my hammie area is at parallel. so, my answer is, basically.

    doesn't the crease at the hip have to be in line with the top of the knee for it to be a legal lift, so even if your hammies are parallel the lift may not fly?

    They judge based on the hamstring? I didn't know that. I have always shot for having my quads parallel to the ground and felt like I didn't get it when I'm sure my hamstring was parallel but I knew my quads were not. I may just start going hamstring parallel from now on.

    different federations have different calls. I'm training hammy parallel right now because I'm not even in my suit. Don't change your training because of me. don't get me wrong, that was a high squat.

    I was just thinking that I won't have to *feel* bad about it anymore if I don't go all the way down to quads parallel.
