Leg press isn't full ROM since trainer has me isolating quads on it more than full leg

Solid lift, just be careful. How come your form was bad?

Check my log, I go into and have a video up. Like I said, form was shit and I don't know why. Other than the 445 lbs I pulled last week (which probably also had shit form, I didn't take video so I don't know), this is the first time I've gone for a real 1RM at a heavy weight.

Any of you guys do squat cleans? I did them religiously when i was racing BMX. GREAT power move. I~d do them with dumbells. Clean to the shoulders, into the squat, plyometric jump to finish it.

At that point, my goal was time. I did sets of 12, shooting for the shortest time possible. If I recall, my PB was 39 seconds for a set of 12 with 45lb dumbells. (and there was NO standing of any kind when that set was over LOL)
