Also moved out my stance a bit and made a huge difference

Yeah but yours are like 25 lb prs. It’s crazy. Yeah I am still trying to get a wider stance to work. My hips dont like it.

I never truely maxed out till now and the 25lb pr is because i only went to 455 with lbs still left off.

Also i am usually a narrow squater till now amd I can feel the difference.

Do you use squat shoes?

I finally got a pair last year and used them twice before I quit squatting due to hip pain. I’m finally back at it and I’ve found that a narrow stance feels better. I think it’s because the emphasis has been shifted to my quads. I feel weaker with a wider stance. I think it’s due to the slight elevation of the heel.

So i have the Adidas power 2.0 with a .6 heel. Being flat foot I tend to lean forwards, so it helps me to force back. Had them for 4 years now and love the squat shoes. I use them for everything so it keeps me back.

I’m really curious as to what that monster mash tastes like. I know he cooked it in some of his videos before, so I’ll have to look for that if I’d like to make one for myself. Pretty sure the recipe isn’t easily obtainable for free out there in the interwebs

Had to take a week off from the gym because of an incident at work and needed to rest to make sure no damage was done.
