For the past two months I have been doing squats with the wuss pad. This is not by "choice" but rather it is because I cannot ignore the pain, and it steals my concentration without the pad.
I have gotten up to 225LBs with squats with the pad. Without the pad I can't even finish 135LBS because I can't tolerate the bar and the concentration just isn't there.
I've read quite a bit about squats and technique. I tried forming the "shelf" with keeping my chest out, elbows back and hands gripped close to my body as I can. But it still doesn't help.
Can anyone help me or suggest something I can do? Like I said I have tried a few times without the pad but I cannot get used to it. I've read that I will just get used to it over time, but if I can't even do one full set without the pad, I don't think I will get anywhere.
