Alright guys, just want some confirmation my squat and clean aren't looking too bad. I worry I'm casting the bells forward on the drop, but I'm otherwise pretty happy.

They look pretty good to me. I’d agree it looks like you’re casting a little on your down in the clean. Something that helped me was rather than focusing on my hand to focus on my elbow - by dropping the elbow and pulling a bit back you remove the casting problem and then the hand just follows the bell down; also helped me keep my arms more relaxed in the down and more hips in the drive. Some people still focus on the hand and think of “unzippering” a jacket. Different focus, same fix.

The weight also looks light for you. What’s your RM with 16s?

I emailed Geoff a week or so ago and got a reply re Easy Muscle. He did say he was a bit behind at the moment.

Thanks John, I'll work on the elbow cue. I tested the 16s at 10 TRM C+P 2 weeks ago before I started the program, but I feel it was more of a technique breakdown than a strength issue, as it's the first time I've done any double C+P for ages. I'll be interested to see where I sit with them at the end of the 8 weeks.

I managed 60 reps in 25 minutes on sunday on the W2D2 "heavy" day, what are other people managing with their 10rm? I'm resting enough so I can manage the last press each set.

I have just run through the plans and pdf.
I love All his other writings, but i really Think that theese are confusing and not so easy to go to as his other programs.

Feel free to PM me with questions. I just revamped the spreadsheets and updated the video walkthrough, so please make sure you watch that.

I just downloaded it. But I didn‘t see what‘s new!?
Workouts earlier were number 1,1,2,2, etc. which led to some confusion. now i see numbering as 1,2,3,4 ... etc. Otherwise everything else seems same to me !

Had somebody got a link to the login page? I bought the program when it came out, just want to check out the updates, and I can't for the life of me work out how to get to it from the chasingstrength page. @Geoff Neupert
