all but the very last rep of squats were perfect form. I'm feeling pretty good today. it's a lot easier when you have someone saying "lower!" while you squat.

your form on the bench press is pretty good. I would recommend trying to pinch your shoulder blades real tight together and try to arch your back as far as you can as long as you keep your bum on the bench. The wider grip is also hits the chest muscles more and eventually you will be stronger with the wider grip. I like your elbow angles keep it 45 degrees from your body like you have. all in all great form.

sorry jonathan- it's nothing personal.. I just happened upon this board and then had full intentions of keeping up logs on both sites.. then I found myself reading both of them less and less (getting busy as the school year approaches- I'm a high school teacher).. and only updating this one since this one seems to get less posting it's easier to find my thread on the front page.. :?

I'll update my log on the other site for you.. unfortunately I don't have much exciting progress... and I've signed up for a "learn to play ice hockey" clinic and am working on my ice skating skills.. I'm really excited for that and it's kind of taken a lead ahead of lifting for my enthusiasim for the fall.. but I am determined to keep improving my form and make some progress when I try for some new PR's in several weeks..

-bench press: 5x55, 3x75, 1x95, 1x100, Fx105, Fx105, Fx105 (I only tried three times because I was SOOO close. it had to be mental because I put up 100lbs with very little problem at all and just couldn't believe it when I didn't get 105. my arms were almost vertical- I've never been that close to completing a rep and still failing. very strange. alas, my 1rm remains 100lbs. :( but a gym buddy and I are beginning a friendly benching competition next week so perhaps that will spur some progress over the course of my next routine.)
