2 questions: 1.) have you thought about slowly reducing your caffeine intake while still performing the same weights, aka cycling caffeine, for better performance?

2.) Seems like you are quad dominant and that's not a bad thing obv, but do you think if your glutes were closer to your quad strength, it would help your speed/vertical even more?

^ good coffee is part of my daily routine. i don't need massive amounts to get thru my workout. i just take in a lot because i like drinking home brewed coffee.

gluts and quads get trained proportionally on the oly squat. no need for isolation movement when one compound works.

oh so you don't take caffeine in other forms like powder or pills? wow 600-800mg a day from coffee, that sounds like a lot.

Do you pause on every rep of the 345s at the bottom?

yes, i always pause at the hole but i also gather before i explode up on the concentric so technically not the strictest of paused reps. bouncing on the hole on normal cadence squats tenderize the lower quads fast if the body does not get enough time to rest (i only give my legs a 12 hr cooldown time before the next workout)

Sorry to bother Kingfish, but remember awhile ago when I hurt my right quad from massaging it way too hard? and you told me to do less intensity for blood flow.

It's been like 2 months now and it still hasn't healed. I am still able to squat and I even did 375 x 1 but now it has been re aggravated some how, but it never fully healed....

if you're injured, then there is nothing really left to do but take some time off and recover completely before you do any form of exercise again.

* woot.. so strong this afternoon after a strong breakfast and a 6hr day nap. bloated wet bw at 196 from all the fruits i ate this morning. 5 large peaches and 1/2 pound of grapes. the 405 felt so easy that i changed my mind on the 395 and did my volumes with 405. it was not very heavy but i can tell that its not 385 anymore. i could not have gotten a paused 4th rep on the 2nd and 3rd set without grinding the weight up. i could get the rep but definitely not something i would do every workout.
* it would be wise to take it easy tmrw morning and just go 455 top again in the afternoon if i stay 195lb+. still skipping the cardio. still have abs.

* was already strong again this morning. decided to do 405 anyway but held of to single backoff set. did smith machine shoulder press seated and without back support. duplicating the form on my seated machine pressing. if the weight is too heavy for my torso, i will not be strained because my upperbody will just be pushed back. bw 194lb.

* i don't think i can recover from a 405 x4-3-3 daily yet. taking it easy with these single backoff of 4 reps. quads not very sore anymore post workout.  putting more intensity on the midback cable rowing and smith machine shoulder pressing.

* 405x4 still repeatable twice a day. not afraid at all of failing. more afraid of screwing up form and exerting a lot more effort than i have too resulting in a harder next workout. also noticed that as i breath in before the eccentric, i raise my upperback about 1/2 -1". that initial down movement of the bar has a very big effect in smoothening the form. i gain an 1" before going down, and i can maneuver the bar path in that little ROM i gained to where exactly i want it to come down. these are all paused reps so anything gained in form helps a lot.
* made my rowing simple now. i use the same little straight bar attachment with pronated grip. upright rows for upperback, mid rows for the rhomboids and lat pulldowns for the lats. i'll also will stick to the smith machine seated press (without back support) and use the shoulder press machine whenever the smith is not available.

* recovery winning with the 405x4 paused volume. i could have done 5 this morning and still have enough for another afternoon workout. i''m close to attempting the 455 again but don't want to change things because its working. tried the 185 on smith seated press without backsupport. i got pushed back. will stay with volume reps on this exercise.

*body fighting a virus. got good sleep and rest but was weak from my colds. could have forced more reps on the backoff set because i was not so weak to not even try them. did the first and it felt so much heavier. don't want to burn out and turn this little cold to anything more serious. all little exercises were not affected. still strong on those. breathing more but were not a problem.

Just curious do you breathe out consciously during the rep? I found out today i squat better when i hold the breath from top thru the bottom and almost up to the top again. I probably release the breathe just as i lock out the last 1/3rd. Is this similar to your experience?

on non heavy reps, i can hold my breath throughout the down and up and a relaxed exhale at the top.

strong exhale on heavy reps on the concentric the moment you win the rep already. you can add some manly grunts to it for more effects to psych yourself on PR volume runs.

don't be the hissing snake bro. so annoying.  :pissed:
