Matt, do you think there is a big correlation with relative GM strength compared to squat? I have never been able to do more than like 185 on the GM and I think that may be why my squat is so bad. I feel like if I don't do something drastic soon, I am going to have a 400 squat paired with a 600 deadlift.
I read the first like 10 pages of your journal and you were hitting the GM pretty heavy and hard. Right now I made a change to run my heavy squat day with my heavy deadlift day. I was going to just do a lighter squat day for the 2nd leg day, but now I am thinking of running heavy GMs...like in the 5 rep range. I figure my squat is so bad and hasn't moved at all in like a year, that I have nothing to lose at this point and will try anything.
