    Heavy lifts (squats, deads, olympic lifts) in socks.

    Everything else in the cheapest pair of Nike cross trainers I could find in France (which ended up being not that cheap).

    I still need to give this a try. The shoes I currently wear squish down in the heel with even moderate weight.

    I'm back and forth depending on what I'm training. Usually I'll wear my puma's (as seen in the vid) or chucks. Sometimes I'll wear my blue saucony running shoes

    Can someone explain the though process behind this? Other than seeing Arnold doing it, what's the benefit? I'd deadlifted in socks and it hurts my arches...

    I feel like I get a stronger push off of the ground/more stable. Could be in my head though. and one could argue its as nature intended.
