Personllay i would drop the weight a bit, and perfect form, explosive power at the bottom the squat etc you mentioned you have to drop down to 135lbs to pull off a decent squat, whilst you can squat 200lbs thats quite a drop, yes yes you should aboslutely be perfecting your form and power, squatting in broken form is not good for anyone, and youll probs get injured before you know it.
If you cant pull a clean squat off after 135lbs then something is lagging behind perhaps also, you mentioned hams, might be your core, hips, flexors dont forget these, but youve got to decide on that issue. And by squatting in broken form your only throwing your body more out of balance.
The bottom line is perfect form is key.[/quote]
That’s the thing, once I pushed 245lbs I was getting a pain in the lower back and that got me thinking I was doing something wrong. I must lost track of form as I added weights, slowly squatting higher and higher. I was afraid of the following workout (this morning) because I would have to hit 255lbs. I could have done it, but the form would have been off and I would of suffered additional pain.
I also found I got a HUGE rush on my quads only dropping to 135lbs and going ass to grass. Nothing else felt anything really since I am used to having over 200lbs on my shoulders. I think I did a good thing.
It’s funny however, since most of my other lifts are maxed except the dead lift. I suppose I can start pyramidding those other lifts to try and peak them as I rebuild my squat.
