Again  :personal-record: 150kg(330lbs)*8 reps (Didn't do the 20*100kg because of this)

very nice

from a form standpoint, i personally would focus on sitting back LESS, and instead breaking at the knee/hip simultaneously allowing for more forward knee movement.. if you notice, your body wants to do that as you go down.. you're sitting back then you can see your body is trying to jut forward a bit and you're trying to stop it.. what i found with half squatting, is if i allow myself to sit right down instead of back, and allow knees to go forward a little more, it feels much stronger and my knees feel even better squatting that way.. it's kind of your body saying "i want to use my quads more" but you're fighting it..

just my 2 cents.. if you try it, just try it with lighter weights, you should feel the difference immediately.. i learned to give in to what my body WANTS to do instead of fighting it with the dogma s&c preaches, makes a big diff.. for example, say you're gassing on squat, what happens, knees usually shift forward even more to complete reps, right? body is saying "USE THE DAMN QUADS ITLL HELP" and in the face of fatigue we give in to complete a rep we'd normally miss.. if we give in from the start, the movement is much much stronger.

The thing is i used to do what you are saying in the past but my knees would hurt after so that's why i've been doing hip dominant squats... Since i've been doing them like this and focusing on hip drive both in normal "full" squats and in half squats i didn't have any problem with my knees...

The principles of biofeedback right there.

What is right for me might not be right for you. Some exercises feel better for a while, until you correct deficiencies, then other versions take up the torch after a while. An endless circle.

2. 2x10x46kgs DB bench PR
3. 3x8x105kg cable pulldown PR
4. Matched or bettered that 53,90 in first try after weights. Didnt measure it as I didnt have tapemeasurer.
