  1. that band you have, what is the resistance on that? was thinking of purchasing one to do the exercises you do and some of the Mobility WOD exercises. I am revisiting my form on my deadlifts. My top weight sets just seem to have my hips shooting up. My knee was aching. The wheels just seem to fall off.

    1. 1. START with a higher hip.

      2. It's the light band. I plan on getting other bands as well because I think they are fun for assistance work.

    2. So basically your back angle will be to a lesser degree as measured from the ground? More of a 30 degree as opposed to 45 degree if you can picture that? I just feel like I don't trust my back.

      Thanks for the tip i will try.

    3. Just keep the hips higher. Don't try to "squat" the weight off the floor, it's not a squat. Get the hips high, and pull.

  2. Paul,

    Would it be to much to ask to have you do a video on the proper way to do a standard press behind the neck or a link to a video showing the optimal way to perform them for growth of the shoulders and upper back.

    Thanks

    So you don't recommend going all the way down to the base of the neck as guys like Reg Park did?

    Thanks

    1. I do that on the klokov press. On these just TO the neck. Right below the ear line.

    2. So if you were to do PBN standing would you just go right ahead and do Klokovs, or would you still just rep to ear line?

    3. I'd just do em the same way I do them seated.
