I'm still around and still on the diet... still working out.
I have some questions about squats and hack squats.
I tried doing 205 today on squats and almost owned myself (luckily I had a spotter nearby) - he yelled something at me and I wasn't expecting it and I gave out.
My question: I think my main problem is my posture at the moment, but another thing is annoying me - my neck and shoulders hurt like hell when I'm supporting that kind of weight - I know that my legs can take it... lifting 205 felt pretty good (my legs felt very tight) but my neck and shoulders were hurting really badly.
Any advice on what to do?
Also, with hack squats - for someone who is 6'5 and has a big butt, these exercises seem akward. I finally have a support bar so I can lift from a higher point, making them much easier, but is it normal to have to move my butt out of the way when doing these?
