I am hoping/assuming that its just because my body is new to this depth and heavy (for me) weights.

I'm not doing a ton of weight, but I can say that I have made linear progressions and I hope to keep them going through the end of the year. My main difficulty seems to be shortly after getting out of the hole.

Any advice or tips is appreciated. Also, I wanted to post this on Strengthmill for Ripp, but my login won't give me access to post for some reason. I guess I need to email their admin.

doesn't look too bad to me. coupel cues for your stickign point

Chest up. Elbows. remember to lock it out at the top.

you don't look super comfortable with that medium low bar style. if you're going to run that lower bar, you might go a leeeetle wider and a leeeetle more flare. and then more sitting back. you might fiddle with a higher bar position if you are going to squat narrowish and deep.
