    For parallel, I used the shortest bench my gym has, which sat my knees at a 90% angel (parallel). When I squat its either ATG or pretty darn close. I've had numerous people ask me why I squat so low...

    They were partial movements, hence box squat and DL rack lockouts. I am aware of that. What I am asking is if it is normal to have a gap that big between squats (370lbs) and parallel box squats...

    I think I'm just thinking to much into specialization and different things that I'm clearly not at the level for yet. I just need to keep my programming simple and as you stated 'stick to it to a T'.

    I was planning on keeping the 40lb increases till I reached near my previous 5rm, than switching over to smaller increments (5lbs). This is where strength training confuses me. For example, what I...

    I knew Wendler had another version of 5/3/1 but marketed 'For Powerlifting.' Always thought the original 5/3/1 program was one of the best strength and mass programs available, which fell perfectly...

    Thanks for all your input! Love the idea of working singles into a speed/medium day. In all honesty, I never really devoted or worked on singles, other than the third week of 5/3/1 for one set. I...
