    Starting a new log cause, my training just got that much better.

    I use that cue, and started with knee wraps, which is super beneficial for my depth - fucking love them.

    And here's one of me almost crushing my own skull.

    First time 170 kgs and failed.

    Good thing I had them clips in.

    I started using the belt in addition of knee wraps today and - I hit the 170 for 2 reps.

    +, better depth.

    I love this assistance tools, definitely getting more out of squats.

    That being said, I was more fucked than ever after todays work out.

    And does anyone have an opinion on the importance of leg press in contrast to squats and DL's?

    Cause I normally get that in same day as squats but - after them heavier squats today, no way I was getting leg press in.

    You need to work more on the depth of your squats

    I would say, I was somewhat of an advanced-intermediate on the scale of slay-regularity.

    We're talking, when the form is on me, and the situation is right, I can make it happen.
    Not necessarily CERTAIN every time, but - I've bedded down some hotties with the quickness, put it that way.

    What I'm aiming for is, on demand.
    Infallible status.
    Women potentially paying me to slay them.

    That's what I'm talking about.

    Day after tomorrow, squat day again.
    I'm gonna vid myself nailing 170 kgs - I'm almost sure to parallel (with belt).

    I mean - ass is pivotal, critical to my grand scheme.
    Without the ass - it cannot be accomplished.
    But I've also got, wicked game.

    You don't look to have an ass at all though. You wouldn't even be on my radar in prison.

    Why do your knees never straighten before you start squatting?

    Leg press today.

    With wraps - up to, 9 plates each side

    360 kgs, not including the weight of the press itself.

    That's a pretty detailed imagination for a guy who's most likely just a creepy virgin.

    I assume you were taking the piss, asking a question like straight knees.

    Did anyone else think he was taking the piss?

    No. Your knees are supposed to be straight before you start a squat.

    Wut?

    Straight knees?

    Is this guy a trying to get me hospitalized or what?

    That seems like the most counter intuitive thing to do from a good-health perspective, that's ever been suggested to me

    What possible benefit would I get from straight knees?
    It's an unathletic posture.

    I suppose you think I should do that on the leg press as well - hmm?

    It's about range of motion.

    When you jump, you straighten your knees. When you walk, when you run, when you stand, kick so forth the same applies.

    There's a difference between being in neutral position with minimal knee flexion, which you should be, and hyperextending/locking your knees, which you shouldn't. You're not getting the entire benefit of the exercise because you're not extending your hips nor getting back to neutral knee position, during the reps.
