i just checked my logs and in january i squatted 290x4
that is discouraging.
i hope you guys are right and i'll get it back soon.
what do you think about the belt and knee sleeves?
i guess it's a common and fairly touchy subject sometimes, but i did just hurt my knee.
should i consider that?

Don't stress it too much. I know you're concerned with meeting your goal for the year, but keep in mind that life happens, and how you deal with it will define you. You can brood over it, or pick up your training where you're at right now and make the best of your situation. You've already accomplished more in the past, so you KNOW you're capable.

Stop stressing and go back to enjoying the iron!

Personal tips that I've learned along my still short journey:

Leave your ego at the door.
Prepare. Showing up dehydrated, hungry, and tired will guarantee failure.
Be ready to fight for that grinder of a PR.
Listen and learn. Absorb everything you can, and assimilate that knowledge.

Mate I went from a 230kg squat to a 100kg and struggling squat from a injury on the squat rack and from the fact of being overtrained. Found it to be all physiological and once I got my head straight up it went and beyond. There is much to be said on the mind/ muscle link when it comes to doubt?

i may have forgotten some things like this.

i think i'm coming around.
got an easy 240x8 squat set tonight after a few working sets.
that projects to nearly 305x1, so hopefully i'll be right back to 335 soon.

it's frustrating because i have very long thin legs and squatting is really a challenge for me. if i shaved my legs they'd look exactly like giselle's. a leg man might see a picture of my legs and cream his jeans.
don't worry about it dude, I have women arms so I know how you feel. LOL
