I have also heard goblet squats are good for working on squat depth and form. Is this true and could you recommend something else?
I'd have to see the full plan to make an intelligent comment. Post it up when you have time. Thanks!

Goblet squats are great for teaching form. It's hard to keep the knees forward with a dumbbell or kettlebell between your hands.

So I'm trying to understand...you do certain lifts twice a week like this? Which lifts? And what do you other training days look like?

Also, what weight are you current using for the exercises in which you are using this progression scheme?

Wide stance squatting can be especially harsh on a raw lifter's hips, especially if they do not have a strength base and don't have solid form yet. Not saying you don't, but I suspect you are having a hard time hitting depth.

Squat 315 Bench 255 Deadlift 315
Weeks 1-5 I use the same weight and do my main three lifts (squat bench and deadlift) and I do this workout twice a week.
Week 1 Tues 6x2 Thurs 6x2
Week 2 Tues 6x4 Thurs 6x4
etc
then after week 5 (6x6 on Tues and Thurs)
Start increasing weight and decreasing reps each workout
so like this
Week 6 Tues 5x5 Thurs 4x4
Week 7 Tues 3x3 Thurs 2x2
Week 8 Tues re-max then do 6x2 @ 85-90%
and it all starts over

Default Question about Abs

I watched your video on getting abs but what about the powerlifter and strongman who have decent abs, how do they stay in Ab form but get so massive? I'm new to this thread but recently started to do a powerlifting routine. Names billy, been lifting going on 8 years. Love any sport that is extreme and has to do with weight training.

Hi Bearded Beast of Duloc! Is it true that if you eat the same food over and over again your body gets used to it and the nutrient absorption becomes less efficient. I have heard this a lot and even though I do include some variety, I just love having my PB sandwiches everyday for my fat sources lol Is this true?? thanks

I think you need to consider adding in work that will target back, tricep, quad and other major body part strength and hypertrophy. This will only help you in the long run.

If this program is yielding results, stick with it. But I do think you need to build your bases, making every muscle group as strong and big as possible.
