That's one of the problems......I can't! I haven't gone any higher than 175 lbs., but even then I am apprehensive. Right now I'm working on form, so I've been using 135.

Random question... but there was some shoe discussion above.

I've been working out in a beat up pair of these for months:



I like that they are completely flat, I actually enjoy squatting in bare feet.

Is this hurting my progress as I get into heavier weights? Should I invest in some better shoes for weightlifting?

I could be wrong but I think they should be fine. I would love a pair of oly shoes but I can't justify spending 150-200 bucks. My vibrams and new balances work ok for now.

Never a bad idea to invest in weightlifting shoes. That's my next purchase.

it seems like the heels are a little raised. Is this the case or are they generally flat.

My thoughts too. I just missed a sick deal on oly shoes. Pendalay had some for 65 bucks on Sale. Apparently the stripes on the outside were a bit mismatched with those on the insole so they didn't meet their QA standards. No idea if they make nice stuff or not. For now I just train in my new balances.

Thats what I thought.. a nice "luxury" but certainly not necessary. Definitely on the wish list!

I'm not sure how the oly shoes work. I'd imagine it creates a better base to explode through the lift. I think it angels your heel in a way that gives you a stronger/more stable push. Kind of like push-ups. When you push through with your wrist in conjunction with your arm instead of your "hand" kinda hard to explain

yea from what I read they are super solid, there's not much foot stabilization concerns.

BTW I thought my belt was a luxury and I am so happy with it. I think it's definitely helped me get stronger. Definitely worth the money.

when I get to the point where I need one (sadly bodyweight is enough right now) then I'll definitely make that purchase
