Wow, I never noticed those things before. Thank you! I guess I need to go back and start progression work again. I think I will use video camera more too. Since I train on my own mostly; my only feedback has been feel and the occasional tips from others who have some knowledge of the lifts. I Would love to live near a good coach.
As for lifting in Japan, I'm sure it is bigger down south. I live way up north in the country/mountains so I haven't seen any advertising for it.
