Sorry I missed this. Been down with food poisoning. Overall your squat form looks excellent. You are a freak in that you can squat wide and deep.

What aspect is feeling heavy?

My best advice is this...place your feet on the floor in a position like you were about to jump, and use this width for your squat.

A slightly more narrow stance will allow you to use the quads a bit more. Build up that quad strength. It will serve you well.

When you squat, think 2 things from the hole:

1) Ass up.
2) Hips forward.

These 2 movements are the squat, and the more you master them the stronger you get.

From the hole focus on lifting your butt up, and then complete the lift by pushing your hips forward.

Things will feel heavy from time to time. That's ok. Focus on that slight progression and keep as much of a natural feeling stance as possible. Don't force a width...find a natural one for you.

If you ever have any questions that are missed in your log, please feel free to post them on the open forum. We all want to see you progress as fast as possible.

No worries, I appreciate the time you take to check in. Hope you're feeling better now. Thank you, thats a great compliment, it's come a long way in the last 18 months or so, lots of reading and re-reading.

On that day it was just one of those days where everything felt heavy. Since switching to a low bar position my stance has widened slightly as it feels more natural and it's my hips that seem to be the weakest point. My quads have been fine since the session but my inner thighs and hams ached a lot more than when I used a closer stance and high bar. *EDIT: Overthinking, I'll go squat Friday, play with foot position and take video, simples.*

Thank you for the advice, it's much appreciated, they will be the only 2 cues in my log book on Friday.

Thank you both, its looking good for my 1RM testing at the end of my next cycle in December . Never tested them properly before and cannot wait, been loving the singles.

It's been a very uncomfortable day with the hamstrings, lots of food to take my mind off it. Started reading Zatsiorsky's "Science and Practice of Strength Training" today and as an engineering student I love how technical it is, beats some of my other reading.

Strong bench session coming in the am!
