hi im pretty much a beginner been lifting since may at home w/ free weights
i got one of those bodymax set of squat stands and i im at the point where im squatting over my body weight .
i workout alone and the last couple of sessions ive nearly lost balance or been unable to squat back up (sticking about 1/3rd way up) now basically i have serious reservations about continuing after this and ive lost my nerve at the very least i predict this will injure me significantly
there are spotters catchers but they dont allow much room for error (you have to be in a very specific position )and i find when i clip them on the bottom of the movement it is very offputting
does anyone have any advice,wud volume training be better?
ive been down to local gym and all they have is a smith machine and a leg press
i had one session on legs with the leg press machine and i found it just hurt my lower back and didnt benefit the muscles
i have heard that smith machines can cause injurys too
any advice i want bigger legs but i dont look forward to these workouts anymore for fear of serious injury
i might also add i dont know if its of any significance that this started after i incorporated deadlifts into routine i usually dl 2 days before squats
do dls work the quads significantly to impact on squats ?
