    Good squat man. If you haven't, be sure to keep good mornings in the rotation. Supplemental, or a main exercise instead of deads or squats on a certain day.

    Also, small thing. When you walk out, practice setting your feet, and keeping them set. Not twitching your footpractice makes perfect for when the weight gets heavier.

    You're getting stronger by the day brother. Keep it up.

    Squat definitely needs a little more tweaking. I may try my adidas lifters again and see if that helps me keep my feet more balanced. I do need to bring good mornings back into the rotation. I’ve been really enjoying the reverse hypers as well. They blow my back muscles up

    Yeah those shoes may help with your ankle mobility with your stance.

    The good mornings will help overall with your back position in the video as well.

    I use the Adidas Adipower shoes when I squat, a carryover from my Weightlifting days, and your feet feet so locked to the floor, stable as can be.

    That being said, nice squat, you have so much more in the tank. That went up fast and smooth.

    Horrible squat day. Just went up to 225 and could not get my hips feeling right. I feel like I have an impingement on both sides because I feel pain and pinching every time I squat just under the top of my pelvic bones. This has been an ongoing issue so I’m going to start addressing it. Buying some bands today and I’m gonna start off every squat day with banded joint mobilization.

    Hate to hear you're having pain. In your workout, are squats first? As age has crept upon me, I have found that it helps me to do other exercises to warm up first.

    I do a pretty good warmup that’s specific to the movement and to my mobility needs. I really wasn’t feeling it going in today but I do need to work on my hips a little more “movement” wise

    Don’t push it. Take time off of squatting if it doesn’t feel right.

    You shall know the truth and the truth will make you odd.

    Bodies been feeling a bit weaker this week. Sleep has been pretty crappy though the last couple of nights. Hit bench yesterday.
    I’m about four weeks out from this meet so everything I do from here on out will be competition style training in the main lifts. Hit 225 for 3x3 with a long pause. Maybe that’s why I felt weak. Deadlifts today.

    4 weeks out, i would seriously look over your schedule.

    For instance, being so close, I would taper down on the assistance since you're intensity in the main lifts are increasing.

    Mondays for squats
    Wednesday for bench
    Fridays for deads

    Rest and recovery would be top priorities.

    awesome, thanks. Should I just focus on those lifts during sessions or should I add in at least one accessory per main lift day?
