***  Laynie, Thanks for your wonderful offer of help. Unfortunately PA rules are that you have to be a member of PA to be allowed into the warmup area. Something to do with insurance and drug testing (of course). Mostly its other lifters  you train with who are not lifting that help 'cos they know how to put equipment on, wrap knees and what cues to give you on the platform.  You might hear some of the cues in the footage above.
