Still a little So, 3 sets of 3 reps each but treat them as singles.

When your squats are a little high, do you sense that when performing them or is it something you notice after the fact?

375x5 is still something to be proud of. They are a little high but depth can be fixed. Right now you're leaning too far forward upon descending which is making it hard to go deep. You need to drop more in between your legs and width might help this.

How are your knees when descending? Pushing out ever so slightly?
Ok Steve and Al - tape on floor it is.

I sense they are too high while doing them

I am sure you and Al hit the nail on the head (as usual) regarding my stance.

I believe I am pushing my knees out slightly, but not 100% sure.

Thanks Babs - yes, I have a nervousness and confidence issue with squats at the moment - also have a stance issue as well. No worries tho, with Al & Steve's help it will be fixed shortly

I love em' like they were my real brothers

That's good. If you didn't it would be harder to make adjustments and tell if they help.

Focus on that a bit. Not exaggerated, just a little.

Great stuff Steve. I'll make on the fly adjustments and hopefully find my sweet stance!!

5/3/1 RELOADED CYCLE 8 WEEK 3 BENCH PRESS

I was tired and feeling a bit beat up from the 20 repper squat, but I decided to bench today in order to lift my spirits up. I knew if I had a good session it would pave the way for a great dead session on Saturday. I'm going to absolutely smash deads like I never have before on Saturday by repping the sh!t out of 435 lbs. and do 440/450 lb singles. Then I'm going to rest in peace for a week.

Today's benching was a lifetime PB

Hey JimBro,

It looks like your current 1RM is 255. You'd better update that! Solid benching there, my friend, and a pretty good soundtrack to go with it

Nice benching JimBro! I remember when 225 was a dream for you. Now repping even heavier stuff. Way to win!!
