    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.

    Tone are you still trying to squat in one of them old frantz canvas suits? Iv tried one once and am now in a semi loose leviathon and its night and day. it seem to help my form and is comfortable because it isnt crazy tight and i still get the support of the tight ass frantz and a tight ass ace. I would say get to westside or lexen but ur so damn far away. Im sure matt and danny help but there not louie or chuck. and another thing. get in full meets more often. doing these push pull or bench only meets dont do anything for the progress of your squat.

    matt has squatted 1105 at 308 and danny 920 at 220, plus both are friends with louie and chuck. danny even trained at westside during college and both get personal invites from louie for the pro ams. they are great coaches who've been in the sport for a very long time. tone's issue isnt coaching or strength, it's 100% mental

    You are bound to get over the hurdle with your squats at some point man, just keep on it.

    douglas, no I've moved to an Inzer Leviathan. Still thinking about going with a Boss suit.

    Vin, it's been awhile since I've actually just plain taken off. I'm doing that now. Focusing on getting stuff done in the new house, finding a new job, and working on my career. I've also back to playing some poker online at night and doing pretty well so far.

    Marty is right. I've had alot of mental issues. While we've made some progress as far as strength, I'm still no sure I've found exactly what works for me, but so far I've stuck to the plan the coaches have me on. Marty has been a HUGE help.
