Pretty sure you can manage 12 reps with 135 judging by your other numbers

If you have a rack at your disposal, set the crash bars at the lowest setting, thats about where it would be for 45'ers. Could also get 2 plates on each side and rest it on there.

As long as you need. Near the end of my SS I was taking ~2-3 min breaks on squats and deadlifts. Doing those heavy with short breaks will kill you. Of course when I started my breaks were around 30 secs - 1 min.

I think the taller you are the harder it is to have the weights touching the ground. I always had this problem when i was doing the row for 5x5.

Why the fuck is SC so anal about having a physical print-out of the $14.95 per month plan? Just look at my phone, verify I was on the email list that was sent the offer and sign me the fuck up.

Bunch of kids goofing off near the squat racks today, pushing each other and shit, little pricks.

Then another guy warming up with curls in the squat rack while talking hands-free on his iPhone.

I'd be pissed off if I hadn't hit a squat PB today

yeah i'm saying it's harder in the meaning if you want to touch the ground with 95 and 115 but when you get to 135 it's easier

well i was superfat before, after i lost enough weight i wanted to do more of a strength program. I did 2 cycles of the 8week basic strength program. (search for it on tnation and it'll be one of the first programs if you put that in the search bar). Before i started i can barely lift 30's. Im pretty sure i could have hit more today if i was going for 1RM.

Current weight 165
Pusged out 175 for 3

i was doing power cleans today and fucked up my elbow joint... never doing that shit again... i was in agonizing pain for like 20 minutes... everything was fine except for the initial jerk motion where you lay the bar on your collar/chest area...this just really comes to show how important proper form is

Yes I don't want to touch power cleans until I can get trained properly. Learning that from a book seems like a bad idea if you're not extremely athletic

Feeling sluggish as fuck these days. Shoulders have been getting progressively weaker the past few weeks even with proper rest. Used to be able 105lbs for 5x5 but I can't even do 100lbs for 3x5.

You must be talking military press. I find the weight I can lift will vary wildly depending on my energy level that day.

You gots noticeable butt-wink. Keep your core/lower back tight and stretch those hammies.

IMO you need to start over and relearn squats. That's what I am doing right now, and it makes a HUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUGE difference.

Everything you are doing is leading up to severely limiting your performance, (and possibly hurting yourself)

^^ Going deep but no offence, I thought you were gonna fail judging by the speed you went down at. Try to control your downward movement too.

Also try to do the squats but do not look at the mirror. Do them facing the opposite way. Pick something at eye level and just stare at it and nothing else. Keep focus on it throughout your squat, that will force you to keep your head up and chest out.

Of course keep your breathing right. Big breath at the top, hold it, start letting it out slowly as you start feeling yourself slowing down on the way back up

Also your back needs to be locked in place. This is helped by the abs as well, and why it's important to hold your breath. The back shouldn't be doing work, it only serves as a 'bridge' between the point where the bar is sitting, and your hips, were the work is actually being done.

Have you tried doing low-bar squats? I find ow bar much easier to keep the posterior chain in check while still going ATG.

Rippetoe prefers low-bar for beginners too:


I also find working on your front squat immensely helps with back squat form as it is even tougher than the high-bar to keep the lower back locked, and also any issues with your form will be more readily apparent (you'll feel it more when you start cheating)
