2) I do know how it is, and your way of thinking may help with recovery. Problem is, it could hurt in other areas. I don't think that level of increase would cause much damage, and I would be willing to risk it for the results. That's just my less harder working side talking though.
Only a failure would refer to the bare minimum as success.
I dont know what it is exactly, but I need to do something with my atrocious squat. I also want to bench 400 but would be happy with 385.

Compete in my first meet
Go 9 for 9
Total at least 1000 lbs
I agree, but that's not what I was talking about. And a longer torso will actually have to lean over more than a long torso to maintain proper form at the bottom of the rep. Not sure what you mean by a longer torso GMing more. Long femurs push the hips back more and the shorter torso has to lean further forward to keep the bar in the right spot. A long torso in retrospect is easier to keep upright.
My point is that a long leg, short torso build is disadvantageous to a squat.
And my legs are 36.5-37" from bottom of my feet to the bottom margin of the coxal joint. Not sure where you want that leg measurement from...
Please also see the rest of my posted above.
If you want to continue this discussion by all means shoot me a PM, but I think we ought to at least keep it on track instead of trying to pick apart each others posts.
turn 40, done in feb
compete at an AAU meet. break nebraska state record for squat, deadlift, and total at 181.
once the above is done, eat my way back up to 198 and break the state record for squats and deads.

After reviewing the Nebraska AAU state records, I've added to my list of 2014 goals.
I'm going to demolish these;
Don't worry, man, someday I'ma be nobody too.
Poor Matt Wescott doesn't even know he has a mortal enemy.
My goal is to compete in my first meet. Love this sport, and the feeling of getting strong(er).
