    do you look forward, or up, as you lift up? I've been looking forward lately, to watch myself in a mirror to know when I get parallel. But maintaining the forward stare sometimes makes me recruit my lower back when I start getting up towards my 5 rep max.

    I think I'm gonna do it like this next time ... forward to watch as I'm going down, then shift the glance upward as I drive up.
