    And I had my cousin tape my second set. I forgot to ask on the 1st and would rather have a spotter on my last 2 sets. We do 4 sets. 12,8,6,4 with weight usually increasing per set. I ended up doing 225x4... Idk bout u guys but I was proud LOLOL. Still training to be a hulk...not there yet

    Ill tape my setup next time, but I don't understand how that has anything to do with my squat technique

    Lol that's amazing... My cousin didn't like it so much. Goes like " who is this kid? Ill mess him up" haha
    Lol I would love to see that in real life.

    Haha nah it's fine. I started pretty much 2 weeks ago, and went up to 225x4 the other day. I feel pretty good about that. Those sets in the vids were our "warmup sets" is what I call them. Higher reps and lower weight.

    Your axis is a bone on your neck and the bar should not rest on your neck; it should be on your traps. Your setup is the most important part of a heavy squat because you must have complete tightness in the upper back and take the bar out of the rack properly or you will fail on the squat.

    Leg day today. My cousin worked late so I went to the gym alone. So no vids lol. But I tried having the bar rest on the middle of my shoulders rather than my axis. It did feel a lot less painful lol.
