For the standard squats:

January & February while I was training with USAPL lifters, I was squatting down to a box. That box helpped a lot. At this gym, there was no means of recreating that. With out someone or something there LIVE telling me that I hit depth, I almost never do.

At about the 5th or 6th set, I needed to slow down and take longer breaks. I even had to do my best of releaseing the blood/tension in the lower back as it was starting hurt and both me.

For the narrow squats:

I thought that the legs (feet) needed to be under the hip socket much like with a conventional deadlift. Bear in mine that I was beign taught by USAPL lifters. You will also notice that I have 2 2.5# plates under my heels. I learned that when I get narrow, I can't keep my heels on the ground. I learned from teh USAPL lifters that for narrows it is ok to do this.

Box squats are a no no. Teaching a completely different form in my opinion. You can get to depth, your just not doing it. I saw that in the previous sets. When you think your low enough, keep going. Eventually it will become second nature.

Narrow= shoulder width apart toes out. If you cant keep your heels down then you have ankle mobility issues and that points to a bigger issue.

As far as time between sets, most of the time I take about 5 mins. You will tend to rush when its only 1 person lifting.

Ummm. There was no pump like the last two sessions. The SMP and Arnie's generated me getting 'tired' but there is not much after burn (DOMS).
