Trust me - it's plenty hard enough. I am just a focused and a highly motivated machine right now. Something happened to me in Vegas. I think the whole experience and the gap between me and the 3rd place lifter has had a big effect on me mentally. Having the honor of lifting a program written by yourself has also been a big time inspiration to me. When you offered to help me I couldn't sleep that night because I was so excited. I finally feel like I am tapping into my potential.
They are right. I normally suggest that most people squat over 500lbs before they start playing with squat gear, and even then start slow. Knee wraps on the other hand is a different story.
