Your enthusiasm for the Swiss bar got me after T-Grip again. I got through to them yesterday and apparently one of their bars was featured in a movie about bodybuilding called "Generation Iron" and that set off a sales spike. But they said they have a few laid away, and will look into getting my order filled this week. I don't want a refund, because they're willing to sell it to me for $200, whereas the current price is $350. It will be cool to try the Pendlay Rows with a neutral grip. With the T-Grip bar, I can do rows, pullovers and curls. So I'll just need two bars. I would like to get rid of some of the clutter in my workout space. Yah, I think shorter daily runs might help. Don't forget the stretches though. I think they helped me a lot. Speaking of kinetic chains, I have this weird tightness/strain in my right leg again. Not sure if it was set off by lifting or running, but it really tightened up on me during Sunday's walk/run. I rolled my calves and shins before heading out, and everything felt fairly loose, but then first the calf started to tighten, then my hamstring, and then finally my right glute, until I had a slight limp. Yesterday I avoided squats and deadlifts, but walked a fair amount in the evening going down to the park with my son. Today it feels looser. It's the same thing I felt last fall, so it's some combination of deadlifting and running I think. Gotta get more vigilant about stretching now that I'm just about over my shingles and able to work out/run more fully. I find my natural squat stance is fairly narrow, just a little more than shoulder-width. Any wider and my knee doesn't seem to track as well. Glad to hear you're still squatting in any case. I'm pretty excited about reaching 300 later this summer. It's funny how absurd Rippetoe and others' endorsement of the squat as "the king of lifts" seemed to me a year ago, but I'm a true believer now.
