    Weights are good if you need to add strength. As always, training approaches should be designed to address limiters. For me, a lack of strength was what was...

    First thing I saw about your lift was that your rack position could use a bunch of work - you kind of catch the bar with your elbows pointed down and then roll your arms back.

    Heh, yeah, it was a long way to go. Worth it, though - we stopped in Northbrook for their Thursday night racing, so got a nice 3 days of track racing in. And broke up the drive from Minnesota.
