    Good squats OS!

    Sounds like a lot of plates clanging...how much weight?
    The harder I work, the luckier I get.

    Naw..just picked a beast ass weight that is still reasonable for a 10th set . I am no where near even that weight as of now. Squats are my weakest link.

    Re: still attacking the squats

    I recently dropped weight on squats from 315 to 180 so I could work back up focusing more on form. I'm back up to 205 now and damn my legs have grown! Form is everything. Thats why the biggest guys seem to lift the lesser amount of weight, imo. Thanks for the motivation Oldschool. I'll get there one day!

    X2. Patience is key. I was getting sloppy at around 295 and up. I'm sticking to 225 up to 275 for my last sets. In due time I will be on old schools and some of these other animals level.

    Yup I like to keep it light enough to where I can do 8-10 clean controlled reps, which happens to be 405

    Re: still attacking the squats

    Dont back/shoulder the weight up. Get your hips closer to the bar and unrack the weight with your legs. Your upper body should be tight and pinned into position. I watched your other vid from May and you did the same thing. You want to get under the bar and get it set on your traps where you want, walk your hips under the bar, arch a little to get tight, get your air and press up with your legs to unrack. That will keep you tight and in position in your upper body and you dont have to try and get tight after you have already unracked and have 400lbs on your back. Also, it looks like you are afraid of the weight and wont commit to it. I would set up a box thats a few inches higher than parallel, drop the weight and do some box squats. Lower the box height as flexibility and strength comes around. Everybody is weaker in the hole, thats why no one wants to go there. But if you arent gonna go to parallel then you might as well just do a 3" movement with 600lbs and say you squat 600 for 10. Anyway, hope this helps and dont take it as me picking you apart.
