That was the cycle I did plan on using, and the thought of using briefs is more of a mental thing. What makes me weary is pretty much all my friends who squat do 1/4 of MAYBE half squats of dumb weight. I shed off literally 200lbs of what they do and just keel over hitting proper depth. Take off even more weight (so now their 450 squat is 225) and they pound a painful ten then hurt themselves in their hips. I guess now that im pushing so much weight I just wanted a little "insurance" so to speak to keep my mind at ease.
But maybe im being a bitch. I did some pretty heavy singles today and the hip didnt bother me at all. So hows the cycle feeling on you now? I read the volume can be a bitch and guys would have to lower their load or take an extra day or so off, is that the case with yo?
