Today, I’ve got some video flavor of our interns getting down.

Will there be any disclosure of the latest “intern death circuit” videos? I hear it was exciting, as always!
The guy in the first video is my HERO.
Great socks, and the rollout wasn’t bad either.
While I suppose it is merely the price of doing business when performing a standing version off of a step and you were obsrving it (which I will take as a sign technique was acceptable all around), I still wanted to ask about your general thoughts about the spinal position at the start of the movement…..would you normally allow that bit of rounding to take place so long as hyperextension is avoided at the mid-point of each rep (as evidenced by your interns excellent resistance of lumbar hyperextension on these reps?
I’m not trying to be a technique Nazi, merely curious, as you’ve commented in the past that a neutral spine at the start is what you should strive to maintain on these………again this may be a moot point based upon the nature of this advanced progression, but I always like to ask to be sure instead of assume and find that I am wrong.
