Thought I'd come back on, stopped using the forum a few months back, as I think it was infected with spam or something, pop ups to other weird websites anytime I clicked on a link. Anyway, that appears to be fixed, so thought I would start posting on here again, and start a new fresh log. Since I was last on finished Mike T's "Project Momentum" and the results were pretty good, although was struggling with bicep tendonitis towards the end. Project Momentum Results Were (kilos); Squat Start:190 Finish:190 Bench Start:140 Finish:150 (+10) Deadlift Start:225 Finish:250 (+25) Since then I have upped my Squat to 200kg, and my next planned powerlifting meet is in October with GBPF Body weight is sitting around 100kg and has done pretty much all year, and currently running a program I picked up from Bryce Krawczyk at Calgary Barbell. I've attached a copy of it if anyone is interested; https://drive.google.com/file/d/0BxnNmpwSANOtOXRLZEFSSFhLYXM/view If anyone fancies following me and my training on Instagram, feel free. https://www.instagram.com/moose_lifts/

Chris, Impressive loads, I have noticed when you squat you look at the floor, assume you don't lose balance doing this, I think I would face plant the floor if I didn't keep looking up when squatting!!!

Thanks man. Next comp is in october, really want to hit a 220 squat. I used to look up, but I have read a lot from Mark Rippetoe and the starting strength method. I find it helps me actually keep balance, keep the bar over mid foot and enables me to use the bigger stronger muscles in my hips, glutes and back. When I look up, my quads do more of the work, which I find aren't as strong as the posterior chain. It takes a bit of getting used to, but when you get it right I find that the squat feels more solid than ever. I think these videos probably explain it better than I can.

Really not long, within a couple of sessions it really started to feel solid. I highly recommend giving it a go. This is another interesting article. Rather long winded but worth a read. http://startingstrength.com/article/lifts/squat-mechanics-a-clarification
