Seriously though it looks like you are stronger than you think. MTFU and get it done
Thanks Al ,

I appreciate the honest feedback ,
After you pointed out that I should video all my big lifts I decided to throw up the vids from this week ,
Im glad I did , the few pointers I have gotten are golden.

Im much rather be torn apart on form issues (or sack up issues) than get “great lifting” comments,
Being honest with myself, my numbers in general are mediocre at best for my bodyweight, so constructive criticism is very welcome.

You're way stronger than you think on squats. That gym doesn't help. If you trained with me for a couple of months, you'd be over 200 in no time just by being around lots of 200+ squatters.

Squats
Beltless
60kg x 10
100kg x 6
120kg x 3
140 x 1
150 x 1
Add Belt
157.5 x 1 - knew I wasn’t gonna hit a double here so racked it and dropped 2.5kgs
155kg x 2 x 2sets
really pissed at my squatting of late, this kinda weight should be easy picking at this stage. wanted to be doing doubles with at least 160kg at this point.
vids below if anyone wants to cheer themselves up.

3 Second Paused Squats
135kg x 3 x 3sets

BW Squats for reps
90kg x 20
90kg x 12
glad to have reached the 20 reps at body weight - next week ill add 2.5kg
for now the plan is to add 2.5kg every time I reach 20reps …..

Notes
against the clock again so leg press took the bullet
thankfully the bodyweight squats saved what would have been another bad squat session.
maybe im expecting too much too soon.
I dunno anymore - ill just keep punching the clock i guess

155kgs x 2 - set 1



155kgs x 2 - set 2

Great work Alan! I'm still gonna say great job so there, you can't stop me ! I do agree with Al, you are stronger than you give yourself credit for! Keep working hard!!!

I thought the squats looked pretty decent Alan - witht he 2nd one being more upright. Depth was nailed which is what I like to do and see.

Al is right, as usual, you definitely are not only stronger than you think, but better at squats than you think.

I certainly hear ya with the frustration, which is further proof this is mostly a mental issue with you, as it was with me for the most part.

We all get down on ourselves, but it looks like LtL has you straightened out. The wall will fall. . .

Great work man. Keep at it. things are coming along anyway! Vids looked good. Definitely psyched yourself out. You nailed those sets at 155 no reason 157.5 wouldnt have gone for 2x2. 160 on the bar next week. Doubles. No psyching yourself out. Just do the sets. If you fail a rep no matter but don't drop the weight.

Yeah it would be great to be surrounded by much stronger lifters alright-from looking at your videos your gym looks the ideal type of place.
Not sure I could get over and back within an hour though
Thanks again for your help mate – and also for the pointers on the deadlift videos too.

Looking back I think I was more focused on the second set alright – thanks for the input Jim.

You are right Tom.

Then onto new 1RM testing,
