Elliot,
tis my point. Plainly don't be stupid, progression is key, start small think big! But don't bite off more then you can chew!

Self-diagnosis leads me to believe I have some of the same problems that Rene has, and I've been following some advice from your post in this thread, Pierre. My form and (more importantly) my back feels great.

This just further convinces me that I need to find some coaching this summer. Or get a video camera to at least get some online coaching.

I was watching Shaf's VBLOG 17 last night. He was doing paused backsquats
with the SS bar. He pushes the knees out, something I know, but forget to do. When I go heavy, I squat different, which I know isn't right. I still have this fear of snapping myself in half.

Push the knees out and pull yourself down. Got to remember.

Chris,
if you post some video here are some tips.

Use 3 different angles - oblique, side view, front view
Upload it to youtube in MP4 format it will maintain the best quality when it gets converted

If you do that I might have something of value to say. Check out this video from some of my newer CrossFitters. video

it will give you a good idea of what you should be looking for also read the associated notes in the blog post - its a great training tool.

Pierre, does your PC and camera automatically capture in MP4 format?

I don't like the windows video format...looks like hell in those outdoor shots.

I forgot if you had a mac.

No it captures in Motion JPEG (MJPEG) If you have the full version of quicktime which I suggest getting you can export it in only a few minutes to mp4. It makes the entire process really very easy.

I've got a Mini DV camera. I think my issue has to do with connecting and capturing via USB.

Do you have Firewire? Because you should be able to stream directly from your cam to whatever editing application you are using in DV. Then you should be able to simply render as an mp4.

My PC is, ahem, dated.
