For those of you that squat heavy, do you squat heavy 52 weeks a year? I've been increasing my squat weight, now i'm in the 300-350 range, but I'm noticing my knees feel stiff (not pain). I squat LB parallel and do dynamic stretching before, maybe time for sleeves? or take a break from squats for a couple weeks?

52 weeks, 2-3 times per week.

Yeah get knee sleeves, they are great. Foam rolling also helps a lot. I wouldn't take a couple weeks of squats completely, maybe just drop the weight to 225 for a few light workouts.

Ps make sure your knees aren't travelling past your toes excessively (knees out!)

take a vid, alot of knee problems happen when ur weight comes too far forward on ur feet, putting alot of strain on ur knee

squatting 2-5 times a week is optimal imo, 5 if ur more advanced 2-3 for us regular joes

for all you macro tracking bros
do you guys count lifting too? Cause since you burn around 300-500 cals each time you lift wouldn't that make quite a significant difference lol

my gf lives right across the street, so itd be nice to go there esp with 19 a month haha.

i dont get what this guy is saying lol, its impossible to lift heavy in the long run without good technique

also...i dont understand why people think theres a distinction between bodybuilding and powerlifting. if youre doing them right, theyre essentially the exact same.

oh and ive recently started pausing all my reps while pressing, and ive found it really improves my form and helps me maintain stability/tightness

help me on my squat guys?

Stats:
18 y/o, 5'8, 145 lbs

Bench: 175 x 3
Squat: 230 x 6
Dead: 315 x 1

Last couple of months whenever I squat I feel as if my back is arched too much (lordosis) and whenever I complete a rep, I feel lots of pressure on my thoracic vertebrae...

2 years ago I hit 250x1, and today I failed 235. What do misc? I've done 3x5, 5x5, push/pull/legs, 531. My size is increasing, but my squat isn't going up at all.

Legs for proof: Legs - Imgur (images are way too huge to embed)

vid of me doing 145 and 185 just to show form: skip to 0:12 and turn off sound

This might be a personal thing but I don't like squatting with sox on a slippery floor. I want to be able to grip the ground and think about torquing my knees out.

To my eye your squat looks good, both in mobility and rom. It does look to me with a high bar rack position you're leaning forwards onto the balls of your feet. I'd try keeping a more vertical posture and trying to drive out of your heels.

However, I'm definitely not an expert, just what I saw.

looks good dude!

the worst thing you can do is go too heavy and fail a lift. always take small jumps so that you do weights you know you can hit.

just some technical faults that I spot that will help your lift:
-try a narrower grip, it will help you maintain back tightness
-bring in your toe angle. when you squat at 45 degrees, you get valgus knees, which minimizes glute activation.
-tighter core. as you drop into the hole, you want to make sure your core is tight, meaning expanding and pushing out into your abdomen region so that your hips and shoulders do not collapse

I do, I used to eat 500kcal more on workout days. Now I just ballpark around 200-300 kcal burned, you can't measure it exactly or know it, depends on the intensity and duration of your lift. So basically I get to eat more (200-300kcal) on workout days. Still dropping weight slowly
