I've wasted so much time not knowing what I was doing. I've broken my squat down multiple times, and I finally have it now that I've fixed all my weaknesses. At 215lbs BW I've done 300. It's only going up from there.
Ive never used knee wraps. only in the last 6-8yrs started using a belt. I didnt say Im smart. At 42yrs old I stick with 405 with a true bodybuilding stance. Guys trying to look strong with wide stances or too narrow with wraps so tight it just springs them back up. I would like to try a squat suit like Ronnie Coleman uses. I want thicker legs, so I try to have total control with the weight and movement. Not to slow on the way up though. I can use 495 for reps also, but its uncomfortable.
