Yea you hit a few nails on the head that time. In fact I think you used a shotgun for a hammer... Well I did make that progression raw, no wraps etc...in fact it's more than parralel I go ass to the grass for maximum development (I train for size, but dig the rhinocerous strength that comes with it, and find there to be a correlation) The squatting, I think I had it in me for a while, just never went for it, I grew up on rugby, soccer etc. Did plyos programs when young ( which I credit my power out of the hole for). None of me mates squat really at all.
Since training alone I've done squatting like a mofo, also switched to full body, fooked around with mescyclic rep ranges, got to squatting and it blew up. In fact I think in a week or 2 I could have 275 for 5...as for stats i'm
deadlift 225x5 neutral grip (300x5 mixed grip)
bis 16.25 (left is a bit smaller)
and just enjoying lifting, trying to get more serious weekly, however distractions tend to outweigh determination. If you lived in my shoes you'd be surprised I can maintain.
