A back squat is the same thing. There is no such thing as an "ass to grass squat" just like there is no such thing as a bar to chest bench press. It's just full range of motion, not a different movement. I go as low as my flexibility allows which is a little below parallel and what most people do that aren't cheating.

(thought I'd move this to the squat thread)

Went for 315 yesterday. Got all the way down, came back up a few inches, and just couldn't push past. You might have me beat!

So use to do leg press before squats as a type of warmup. Well stopped doing that and my first working set or two feels easier/better, but my sets afterwards doesn't make a difference.

Wasn't able to leg press with the same weight after squats though.

Actually, it's not the shifting that gets me at all.......


...it's my lower back. I can't even sit up straight.

My gym has a slight incline to leave the parking lot, when I leave after leg day, holding in the clutch and doing hills in traffic leaving the gym is one of the worst experiences ever. Legs are like jelly and are vibrating like an Xbox controller.

i'm beginning to notice two problems with my form:
1. i drive through my heels (as you should), but i find that i often focus so much on keeping away from putting weight on the ball of my foot that i almost topple back as i bring the bar up. i'm able to take a step back and "catch" myself, but obviously it shouldnt even come to that.
2. i put more weight on my right leg than on my left.

any specific tips for these problems other than "practice makes perfect"?

I'd have to see you do it. It's tough to coach without being with you. What weight are we talking about?

I want to say it will even out but it's tough to say. I'm not that experienced with muscle imbalances. If you slow down a lot does it help? Really think about lifting the weight through the hips and see if it helps.

yea i slow down a lot and think about it as i do each rep, it helps. it's just really annoying for me to find that sweet spot between leaning too far forward or too far back

I love Indian food so much. This is good to hear though. I'm increasing weekly now. Feels good to have a set plan again.

Any ideas why leg days are killing me more than anything else? I seem to really get sore for longer periods of time. Most people may see I over train each group of muscles, legs however just seem to take at least two days longer than any other section.

My Ride: is totaled
Thoughts on "box squats" ... like actually sitting and pausing and then standing back up
I used one of those seats for shoulder work
Allowed me to sit down with legs bent 90 degrees
It took a lot of pressure off my knees and I was able to do more reps at 225 than doing regular back squats
