    Damn! I’m just starting to only spend a second in the bottom position to maximize the stretch reflex, like you’re doing. Looking at this I notice I’m squatting too low. Getcha’ Pull!

    Nice job man! Awesome!

  9. Angelo Says:

    So perhaps you’ve said this before Eric, but any reasoning behind your arm raises before you deadlift?

    I became a man when I saw this lift.

    Awesome man! I’m going through your Maximum Strength Program right now, so I’m hoping to pull up my deadlift number too!
