Good lifting Benny!

Can I just ask how deep you are going with your squatting? I ask only because it might be worth getting them to parralel now (if you are not already there) at this early stage, rather having to correct it later.

Keep up the good work.

yeah I don't think I am going deep enough. I was trying to work on this last week and I am getting closer to parrallel every time.

Oh and football for 1 hr 20 again.
Gym tomorrow.

Hi Benny, is it possible for you to video your squatting so that we can see the form. It helped me a huge amount - I think it is honestly harder for tall guys to squat 'well' than it is shorter people. The leverages are all wrong.

While I agree with this (and think that shorter people have advantages on other exercises too), what height do you consider short? I'm just curious.
