Back to squats since it's my worst lift... had a pretty shitty squat session last Friday due to GMing out of the hole on my max set (decided to dump the bar over my head instead of wrestle it up with my lower back and quads). Spent the week seeing if maybe it was mental queues/Mark Rippetoe fucking me up. I started looking ahead instead of down. Trying to keep my elbows down instead of back... but what do you guys think of when you're bouncing out of the hole? Rippletits is all about pushing the weight up mentally with your lower back. I see from other sources to think about driving yourself into the bar. I've tried both and they don't feel the same. Basically just trying to keep myself upright so I stop doing squat-mornings.
Looking for last minute advice before squats tonight.

try paused squatting perhaps? throw up another vid

tight upper back, arch, squat down.
chest up the entire time, push back into the bar.

Thanks. This sounds like the Robertson squat article compressed into two lines.

wtf at looking down when you squat. I force my neck into the bar. Helps with staying upright. I pull the bar into my back.

Fuck yeah! Confirmed that my buddy is letting me use his equipment in my [future] storage unit:

220kg of plates, plus change.
a olympic bar
squat stands

Getting stall mats from a buddy, might need to buy 1 extra. Probably will make a platform.

As long as the unit is tall enough, i'm pumped

Is that enough weight for you to pull?

I don't deadlift [heavy] anymore.

it's enough weight for squats and cleans and snatches. if need be i can buy more plates.

I squat low bar and sit really far back and my hamstrings are quite small. Thinking of adding some isolation to get them bigger, but I hate leg curls. Might do some high rep straight leg deads.

That Robertson squat article is very helpful, assuming of course, he knows what he is talking about.
