Keep in mind that I use a smith machine, there is no squat rack at my gym. At first when I started squatting (like a month ago lol) I was just going parallel. And I was able to get 2 plates on each side up 5 times, for multi reps. Now that I started working on my form and going ATG, I can not squat much at all. I literally got stuck with 155 lbs on the machine. I should be able to squat more then this. I am in good physical condition, am consistently on my feet working, so my legs should have endurance. But this crap is frustrating. I'm doing SS by the way. Should I only go to parallel or should I stay going ATG, and just keep working on my form and move up slowly? I've watched rippetoes videos btw.
I had my legs spread about shoulder length, my feet and knees pointed slightly out, my grip was about 2x my shoulder length, and I was trying to drive with my hips.
