Good stuff James! Hey you should also check out The Cube Method page if you're on Facebook? Brandon Lilly is on there all the time, pretty useful to have as an extra resource.

Good training this last week mate ~ squats looked solid on the video as well. Maybe set the video a little further back next time so I can see how the depth is looking. Good power on the way up though, nice work.

Where do you train? Looks like the Anytime Fitness I train at haha. Have a great Christmas Day James MF.

I definitely will move the camera next time, I just want to use it on my max effort days and max attempts to check form and what not.

While I'm at home I train at anytime fitness, they ended up giving me a free membership because they remembered me training there prior, which is awesome.

Have a good one too MF. Our meets are a month apart, so the timing of us changing routines was perfect haha
