Entry #822

Just watched Tom-Yum-Goong. Even though George and I saw it in theaters...goddamn. Ong-Bak was slightly better, though.

My deadlift form is atrocious. Knees are habitually locking out way before my back finishes the ROM (evident in my last YouTube video), probably as a result of disproportionate lower back strength. Did a bunch of speed sets today with 225, preparing for when I pull heavy.

Over the weekend I got a pair of Chuck Taylor's from Foot Locker, so I'll no longer be squatting or deadlifting barefoot. I've noticed that the pressure that the sole provides makes a big difference in stability. My feet start to hurt a little bit if I do overhead squats barefoot (though strangely the same is not true with heavy back squats).
