    You should post a video. That's sick. What's your 1RM back squat?

    Thx to all
    Build your hamstrings as they stabilize the knee joint, warm them up prior to squating. Ie. Banded goodmornings or ghrs
    Get a good pair of knee sleeves, tommy kono or rehbands to keep them warm while training. Prefered of wraps unless you wanna compete with wraps.
    Do a mobility warm-up before leg sessions like joe defrancos agile 8
    Start box squating, easier on the knees and you recover faster. Watch westside videos on youtube to truely learn the box squat and read on elitefts.
    Strengthin your hips also so you can sit back and spread the floor better.
    Horse linement is like icy hot, but made for race horses that you know, make ppl money. So you can say its much much better then anything offered otc for humans haha.
    Balance your leg work 50 percent hamstrings, 50 percent quads to create balance.

    Lift the fücking weight from the floor, or leave it on the ground. The thoughts are supposed to be daunting. The pain is meant to be tormenting.

  5. i prefer squats

  8. I'm glad I read this thread. Due to my neck (see my avatar) I can't do regular squats anymore and can only go VERY light on deads. I am going to experiment with hack squats and see what happens.

    DAMN! I am glad you told me this. If I had taken that, I could have paralyzed myself.
