Squat Improvement Plan


So, I incorporated some of the advice from you guys, and some of my own methodology, into improving my squat. Happy to say that it is working; I hit a 275 lb. front squat yesterday on my third set, and after 225X5, 275X5, and 315X2 high-bar squats I took 345 really deep and came up with it like it was my first rep of the day.

Static holds, weighted abs, and mid-back rowing/pulling movements are helping a lot to increase my thoracic strength and keep from folding over. I'm down 6 pounds bodyweight too, so I'm getting stronger as I cut weight.

Thanks guys!


Great work man. Keep up the good work!

Thanks! Manipulating carbs, trying to get down to 200 lbs. from 225/226. Woke up at 219 today. Gonna go for a light hypertrophy week soon, and then take new maxes so I can build a new program.
