Alright,I guess my previous respons got lost somehow. Anyway, sorry for not being clear - I intend to squat just as much as I always have - then add something specific for the squat while tapering down the deadlift.
@repo how much did you gain from smolov? It should be interesting to try once my bench meet is completed.
@DSSG You’re right, I should post a video. I think though, at 310 lb squat there probably shouldn’t be too much focus on weakpoints, it’s probably that I’m weak as shit in general.
My form is pretty good, now that I use raised heels and high bar, but maybe that is part of the problem for the low weight??[/quote]
I have a similar ratio of squat to deadlift numbers. Just like you I found high bar closeer stance is by far my best squat stance and once I started using it my squat increased. For some reason wide stance doesn’t seem to work well for people built to deadlift. Look at pete rubish even, squats with a close stance
Indeed. Have you tried geared? I find that I can allow myself a wider stance in gear, without much problem, but raw is impossible if I want any kind of bar speed.[/quote]
I’ve only squatted raw. I’ve been thinking about picking up some oly shoes to see what that would be like, since they’re meant for close stance squatters. Just wouldn’t be happy about spending 100+ dollars and not liking them. lol
