i've been training weights now for about a month. my routine is as follows: mon: deadlifts tue: cleans and a bit of other stuff wed: badminton thurs: squats ive reach 275lb in deadlift. i could so many singles of it yet none at a higher weight. in deadlifting today i did 1 single and couldnt do anymore. i clean 120lb or so just as a bit of explosive work, although i can easily handle the weight. i started off squating in the smith machine using 3 plates on each side, but found it limiting so started proper squatting. ive found it hard to keep the balance doing this, as i have maybe the worst leverage possible for squatting ever. but i give it a go. i do a little front squatting after heavy work, only using a little weight. after sticking today i included some extended range deadlifts but cant keep my back straight enough, and also some lockout work, but its very high. my question is, do you have any thoughts about my dilemma?
