Well fvck. Just got back into an actual leg routine this morning as I'd been slacking. Hiking/skiing/biking outside had been more enjoyable for me and was doing enough, however realized I was being a little b!tch and not improving any.

But now I feel like I didn't do jack this morning. Glad to be back at it though.

You'd hate my Triathalon Thursday's then. 3hrs at the gym, but broken up in swim/bike/run makes it bearable.

265* back squat. I love the gym so much lol. Intensity doesn't drop until about the last half hour. I'll hit the entire body today but be a bit gentle on the back as it's been tense lately

Yeah I've been doing them twice a week going up to like 165x5 or 6 now, then switching to back squats for the rest of my weight increase

I'm continuing to make great progress I'm happy with. I think I've got my numbers to a reasonable level between my legs and upper body, although I'm going to keep working to get the difference a little more, but I'm still training both.

Got 265 x 3 back squat today with no spotter. I'm pretty proud of that.

Edit: last update was miscalculated. It was 255

We need to see form brosef. Definitely not saying you're not good but it's always good to see a video and make sure.

My depth is great. With heavy weight i occasionally lean forward a little and my right knee moves in a little. Other then that it's all good. Tomorrow i haven't decided what my routine will be yet, but afterwards I'm spending like 4 hours at the spa getting my back taken care of, massages and relaxation and goodies. Saturday I'll try to get my buddy to snap a video on the dl at the gym.

I had to use a different power rack than normal monday without the safety bars, and without them I was going a deeper on my squats (I set the bars for parallel)

255 x 5 felt so much heavier by going an extra inch or two down, crazy what a difference it makes.

Yeah, i see a lot of people squat way to high. Every rep i make so it would count at a power lifting meet.

Do you want light weight high rep video, or heavy set?

I squatted Tuesday and today already, so Saturday I'm not expecting my a game

Depending how i feel, I'll do it Saturday or Sunday, and maybe if I'm feeling good I'll throw in a little deadlift action....

Here ya go Solly!

It's not the greatest angle because i didn't want to be "that guy", but you can see my depth, can see my left knee kick in a little, and towards the end you can see me lean forward a little on my way up. Don't be too hard on me.

My thought would be:

1. Push those knees out. If you need to but a light resistance band from efs and do a bunch of bodyweight squats pushing your knees out against the resistance of the band.
2. Stop bending your neck up at the bottom of the rep. Look at a spot on the floor 6 - 10 feet in front of you and keep a neutral neck position.

3. Go down further. You're hitting parallel, but why stop there. Work The full range of motion.

4. Start squatting barefoot or get some shoes without a squishy heel like those. Tough to have a stable drive with a 1+ inch foam heel. Most importantly, keep your weight on your heels.

Good work!

I've been working on keeping my knees out and made pretty noticeable improvements over the last month. Another couple weeks of bring conscious of my knee movement and i think I'll be about good.

My power lifting coach always taught us to look at the ceiling, which seems to be pretty common. Any real negative effects from looking up?

I'm comfortable with parallel, now you're just getting greedy lol.

New shoes are a possibility. And thanks for noticing that. I'll work on keeping my weight on my heels. I've been curious about toe or heel pressure, but never thought of asking.

Thanks for the advice!

Looking at the ceiling is a good cue for beginners, but it puts the neck at an unnatural angle when the weights start getting heavier and perfect form is more important. Looking at the ceiling helps to keep a straight back but once you've learned how to keep a straight back there is no reason to put the neck in an unnatural position.

While I am no expert, I have been lifting on and off for a long time now, shoes suggested by Glight make a huge difference with squats.

I currently use these, can't squat though right now as I am rehabbing a broken ankle.

my normal leg routine is something i havent done in a while but i miss it, im much weak due to not doing it....

DAY 4
1. Inclined leg press. 5 sets. 25, 20, 18, 16, 25. 525, 615, 705, 795, 525 lbs.
2. Lunges w/ dumbbells. 4 sets. 16 steps. 50lbs x 2
3. Lunges w/ smith machine. 4 sets. 8/leg. 135+ lbs.
4. Calf raises w/ smith machine. 6 sets. 225+ lbs
5. Seated hamstring leg curls. 5 sets. 12, 10, 8, 6, 12. 25+ lbs.
6. Man-ginas. 5 sets each, or till failure.
7. Squats. 3-5 sets. 135+ lbs.

I plan on tweaking it with less inclined leg press and more regular leg press. The one that swing the weight horizontally, and also more squats.
