Dunno really. Some people swear by so-called "squat shoes" (i.e., w/ raised heels) fro squatting, regardless. Others insist you must use them when squatting high bar, but not low bar. And others...

Thanks Ravi, Jio.

The plan should work for now. The light weight doesn't give me grief, but the rep work I can do with it means I will - hopefully - build some more back muscle. Also, the hammies...

To me, the squats and deads on that program looks like enough. But if you felt like adding some leg curls in, I doubt you'd break anything too badly. :D
