Re: RE-check Squat and check Strict press and deadliest

If you feel locked in place and don't tip forward where your elbows are now you are fine.

For me elbow positioning is in a spectrum. More elbow back and up means a better shelf and possibly the ability to carry the bar lower, but this risks tipping your forward when coming up. More elbows under will help you stay upright but may make it harder to lock the bar in place. Based on your body type and muscle bulk will determine the sweet spot that locks you in place without pitching you forward.
