I totally lack explosive strenght. My lift are sad for my body weight. Squat=225 lb x5, dead=340lb x 1, leg press= 405 lb x 8, bench= 185 lb x6 (worst lift never feel comfortable) OHP= 135 lb x 5, barbell rows= 205 lb x 4 I workout alone so I don't do many singles aside from Deads which I start with 5 reps and work down to singles.
When I squat I feel it all in my Hams and Glutes. Thats why I was concerned with the muscle right above the knee. I tried hack squats but they made my knees ache which affected my next squat day. I guess I just hate my pointy knees!
