Hi guys, I was hoping to get some advice on squats. All of the sudden I've hit a mental roadblock on squats, I'm getting psyched out and nervous every time I get under the bar. About a month and a half ago I started getting under the bar for weight that should have been no problem and just bombing out. I took a month off from them and did box squats with bands, switched back to regular these last two weeks and the same thing is happening again, just bombing out completely with weight that I should be able to get.
This is of course a chance I've just lost strength on squats, but if say my goal was 365x3 for the day, once I hit 225 during warm ups I would start getting psyched out and afraid to do the set.
A good friend of mine suggested I just switch it up, maybe train box squats for a while. I think its a good idea, just wanted to know if this has happened to anyone else before and what they did to get over it.
Thanks a bunch.
