Deloading seems like the logical solution although I absolutely hate it. Want to move more weight, not less censored.gif
Maybe paused squats?

Same thing happens to me, usually on the last rep or two. Technique and supporting muscles are so limiting on the squat, leg strength i should be moving a lot more weight, but it's hard to get everything to come together. I'd say a lot of it is to do with glutes not activating which is a huge problem for me, they are so loose in a squat. Moved 100kg for 2 x 4 today improved on last weeks 100 x 3RM.

Been squatting as my lower power exercise for about a month now, might swap it out for deadlifts soon, although i'm never sure if deads actually provide much hypertrophy.

Now that you mention it, I also have a problem of not activating glutes. Can't remember ever feeling them do any work when squatting. 

There's some warm up exercises for activating glutes in that link maplefuturist posted above.

Fuji would you recommend wearing a belt for 3-5 rep squats?
post #20288 of 47667
Depends on the percentage, if your doing a triple with 60% of your max no, but if your doing it with anything near a maximal weight i think you should.

Should I use a belt for clean and jerk w/ 50% of my deadlift max?

post #20290 of 47667
Im maxing out once a week, so should probably think about getting one.

I started using a belt recently for squats, even though I'm only doing 3 plates it helps alot with me tending to lean forward. I got mine from best belts (??) I think - really good quality - but it took a couple weeks for them to ship it out. Check em out if you're looking for a belt.
