    I didn't take any before pics. Will be taking some after pics in the gym if I can get one of my lazy-ass roommates to come with me.

    Alex's Results review kind of intrigued me, I'm going to try out hmb + beta alanine + creatine for a couple months before I hop on again. Gonna play around with albuterol as well. I'll wait a while during PCT until I feel things are back to normal and then start up my TKD diet. I would like to compete at 220 again for my next meet, so I plan on getting as lean as possible.

    Having a problem with leaning forward with heavier weights on high bar squats. Kinda lost my balance with 455 and dumped it.

    sitting back too far and losing center of gravity when you push me thinks.. point toes out more and push your knees out, keep a very hard low back contraction and chest up.

    Yeah I definitely need to work on keeping my chest and head up. There's a mirror in front of the squat rack and I can't help look since I'm so damn sexy.

    I thought Results was part of your supplementary diet.

    I thought we've established the fact that mirror squatting leads to weight dumping?

    Do you like going ATF squats for the hell of it? I like to make sure I hit depth, but for me if I go too low I just feel my hips get a bit out of place during the movement, and I don't like it.

    Maybe it's my hip flexibility? I remember you saying you had tight hips when you went to the chiro or PT and they said you had some tightness so I figure you'd have some difficulty going low on squats.

    Do you feel any tightness of differences in your hips when you go low?

    ATF feels very natural for me. I also like putting as much emphasis on my quads as I can since I tend to be a narrow squatter. I don't think my hips were the problem, have a feeling it was more to do with not keeping my chest and head up as Jake mentioned.

    Same here. Not sure why, but I never have any hip or knee issues doing ATFs. Of course, that probably has more to do with me moving way pussier weights...

    I have felt some odd "transition" during the bottom portion of ATF squats. The movement isn't as fluid for me.

    For quad focus I stop just @ 90 degrees and I can thrash my quads with squats. I know some people have trouble nailing their quads, but it's taken time to make squats work my quads to the degree I prefer.

    It sounds like you're able to make your squats work your quads also.

    The fact that you can hold 700 pounds during the Rack DL's is in itself just awesome.

    You happy with the Rack DL progression?

    Definitely happy. For me at least, having the bar right at my knees puts me in the worst position leverage wise, since the bar is further out in front of you as opposed to when you first start off the ground. I really like to focus on form with those, keeping my lower back locked in and really utilizing hip drive. I think it's helped my lockout a lot, as well as my form off the floor.
