I've been really struggling with my squat for some time. It's been a building frustration for me for awhile now and finally came to head this past Saturday. My squat is still pathetic and due to my weight gain, my deadlift has dropped as well. I don't want to quit and probably couldn't even if I did want to. The sport gets in you. So, I've decided to step back and regroup. My bench training is going well so I'm going to make that the base. I've found what works for me and it's been working consistently for a long time. I feel my deadlift training should be pretty easy to fix with some weight loss and then going back to what I was doing when I pulled 770. That leaves the squat. I train this with some of the best in the world. Matt Wilson, Danny Blankenship, to name a couple. They've all tried to help me over and over again to everyone's frustration. Squat just isn't happening with me. I can't bring myself to be a push/pull or bench only guy. I feel like it would be the weak way out, to just avoid what I'm bad at. Besides, I've done some of my best growing (mentally) since I've been trying to conquer this. I can only imagine the feeling if I can finally master it. Accomplishment ends all suffering. So, I'm taking some time to get my sh1t together and refocus. I don't want to be a distraction to my partners and when I return I want to make sure I'm ready to work and confident I can make it happen. I'm off to plan a course. Stay tuned.
