Testing out a different technique today. Instead of the usual wide stance and looking-at-the-floor eye gaze, I'm trying out a moderate/medium'ish stance (similar to my high bar squat) and looking up.

We'll see if this will help keep my torso more erect, and utilize the strength of my quadraceptacons.
