While researching Lifting Shoes on the Internet, I discovered that one of the best shoes for Squats and Deadlifts is the good old fashion Chuck Taylor's. So, I dug out my pair from many years ago that I wore as river wading shoes while fishing and rafting.

They were a little skanky from not being used for awhile, so I chucked them in the washer with some detergent and bleach. The bleach probably wasn't the best thing for the old canvas, but they came out looking a lot cleaner.

The soles are flat and sturdy and preformed well while doing a few squats.

I'm still interested in some official lifting shoes for cleans and presses.

DISCLAIMER: I have never had any formal workout or fitness training instruction. Everything I have learned has been self taught, self motivated, learned from trial and error, or picked up from books or the internet. Because of this, some of the words or phrases I use might not be the correct terms used by "professionals".
The logs listed on this site are workouts I have put together for myself. They are not meant as examples to teach others, but only as a way for me to track my own progression.

Thanks for viewing.
