glad you guys liked it [img]/forum/images/graemlins/smile.gif[/img]
If you have any other questions about squats feel free to ask in this thread. I find the squat one of the hardest lifts to master (second to only olympic lifts), I am still trying to play around with depth myself, too low and i "bottom out" which pushes my knees too far forward for comfort but this will be different for every person so it is one part of the lift you will have to find out for yourself [img]/forum/images/graemlins/wink.gif[/img]
"The truth Iíve discovered is that you donít have to lift enormous weights to grow muscle. By using stricter form, slower negatives, and stretching between sets you can get an incredible pump in all your workouts. Numbers are an abstraction, especially to muscles. Your body doesnít know the absolute weight of what you lift, it only recognizes how heavy it feels. The secret is to make lighter weights feel heavier. " - Frank Zane
