Damn, why such a high depth... that's not even parallel

I am shooting for parallel, not ATG.

needed more depth on that set for real. making progress is hard.  :(

Well why don't you lower the weight and go deeper and more under control? That will benefit you much more than what you're doing now. A 5 rep ATG squat is similar to a 10 rep parallel squat in terms of TUT so... it's more than just depth.

Good point. I have dropped weight and readjusted depth.

greater depth probably helping force you keep your legs externally rotated, too, which will help you move more weight, safer, in the long term.

bench 5x185, 3x5x205

did a cell phone video of squats tonight and even tapping the fourth pin I am not breaking parallel.

So I dropped the weight and went down to the 3rd pin, which is 27.5"s. after watching the video of that It doesn't seem deep enough WTF? I must have the shortest legs ever for my height. What is a super long torso good for?

I will try to get some vids up tomorrow.  :huh:

^^^^^^^ true statement. horseback riding also requires less p-chain strength. maybe it is time to get in where I fit in.

4/4/13 Thursday BW=164.0

jump squat 5x45, 5x95
squat 5x185, 3x225, 1x255, 1x285, 5x115(js), 1x275, 5x255, 5x245, 7x225
GHR BW 8, 10,10
pull up BW 12,12,10
ab wheel roll outs 3x14
calf raise 180# 3x15

Could not get last weeks squat video off the near broken cell phone, so screw that.

I have figured out that getting 1 workout per week is going to get me no where. weights were super heavy and awkward tonight.

Felt great through warm up sets and then just bonked.

low on time and focus lately.  How I wish I was 19 again......

4/8/13 Monday BW=160.8

jump squat 5x45, 5x95
squat 5x185, 3x225, 1x255, 1x270, 5x115(js), 4x260, 7x240, 7x240
GHR BW 3x10
ab wheel rollouts 3x15
powertec squat machine 180# 3x8
calf raise 180# 3x12

squat depth takes a bit to readjust back down. finally locked in and ready to rebuild.

My weigh is coming down as I clean up my diet. I am thinking about cutting to 155, athletic anorexia style.

depth is significantly better than before but your knees are collapsing from start to finish. legs not externally rotating enough. if you fixed that i bet you'd squat more and squat more comfortably, too.

kelly starrett has some great videos on this, not to mention pretty ridiculous mobility himself. i do this sequence every workout:
