Thanks so much.

I never learned so much about my power/technique lifts in only 1 post before.

But I do have some questions/comments based on your advice... I hope you don't mind as I am always trying to learn as much as I can.

What do you do differently from Rip? And why? My squat still needs some work, though its mostly OK, i think. I am just curious as to your take.

You don't necessarily need to explain here or link me, just let me know where I can find info on your approach if you can

No apology necessary. I know it needs work...thats why I posted it. If I thought it was perfect and was posting it to fish for compliments, that would make me a pretty shitty trainee

I'll try your technique.

Thanks! i have actually been getting a lot of shit from someone on my pull. They have been telling me to give up cleaning all together because it sucks so bad. While i didn't believe them, having you say that it is good totally negates that point all together, since you clearly have more experience.

Once again, I really appreciate everyone's help and input!
