    Morning Chris,

    I changed where I look when squatting this morning and whilst it took a fair amount of concentration to not look up it went quite well for all 3 sets of 12, I would say it felt slightly harder than my normal stance but had no balance issues (well just 1 rep in the 1st set) and it did feel more stable than normal so will continue with looking down!!

    Good stuff. If there is one cue I could give you that really helped me its Hip Drive. I try on focus on a spot on the floor in front of my and drive my hips up out of the hole as hard as I can.

    Good ol' Rippetoe explaining it here;

    These are the way Mike Tuscherer recommends doing them. Similar to pause squat it takes out the stretch reflex in the lift while remaining as close as possible to the competition lift. I feel this has the most carry over to my competition squat.



    I know others such as candito do them from a partial range of motion and from the bottom up.

    I was referring to the car elevator advert that was linked and no pin squat video unless there is something wrong with my phone!!

    Quick question: In your logs you usually list 2-3 lifts, is that your complete workout? The reason I ask is I feel I've been chasing too much volume and need to reduce it, but at the same time volume is the main growth factor...anyways just asking.

    Yep, that is my complete workout! Sometimes I'll add a GPP day (General Physical Preparedness) where i'll do some cardio for 20 mins, abs, rows, chins and maybe some bicep curls.

    My current block of programming looks like this;

    I have a powerlifting meet in 10 weeks so my program is a little more specific than it otherwise would be. At the moment I am just purely interested in strength in the big three so dont want to waste recovery resources on movements that wont have much carry over to the main lifts.

    Hope that helps, are you looking for hypertrophy growth or strength growth?

    Week 6, Day 1
    Squats felt awful this morning. But I am putting that down to playing 18 holes of golf yesterday, without much food or water and combine that with training at 5:30am my legs simply had no power!
    However bench moved great, and managed to set a new PR.
