This weekend I was able to train both Saturday & Sunday at the EliteFTS Compound. I did box squats and some banded pulls Saturday; with Ted, Sabrina, Todd, and Grant.  I have been working on my upper back tightness and keeping my lats tight and elbows under the bar, and I've been seeing some good improvement lately. I still need to do a better job with coming up off the box during squats. I've been rocking forward off the box and extending my bar path more than it needs to be. I did a down set after singles on box squat, and was able to make a few good changes. Deadlifts went well, but I need to pull back as opposed to "up" and make sure I'm loading my glutes and hamstrings right away. Overall good day and I always learn a lot training with everyone there.
