Mmmm split squats were great today. 7+/10 hispanic girl came in gym with super short shorts half her ass hanging out and proceeded to stretch so she could do her (3/4) squats. I didn't even have to drop the weight or reps for split squats today. I have no clue how she even works here, haven't seen anything that comes close in the office. Usually the only women I see in this gym are the overweight 40-50+ yo ladies on the treadmill.

Also, I've been eating too much to cut all week because I get really hungry and too little to bulk because I'm not trying to bulk... talk about spinning your wheels shog[1].gif I've decided that if I end up needing TRT, just going to say fuck it and bulk...

I had a problem with arching too much and overextending my back on the ascent since I couldn't engage the core properly. Also couldn't go past parallell without butt-winking. Feels a lot more stable now after some months of mobility work, front squats and loads of core work.

 

Anything else that could be improved?

I use a pretty wide stance (heels just outside shoulders).

 

Looks pretty good - especially considering your long ass legs can't make squatting easy.

I do. Lower days always in CPs. They have flat leather insole and flat rubber sole.

Always had problems with squats because of that. The movement is at least feeling somewhat natural now. Widening my stance, doing loads of external rotation mobility for the legs and shoving the knees out to the sides has helped a lot. I have a good build for conventional deadlifts, on the other hand.

Nope, old and destroyed cons. They're falling apart and the sole is actually starting to round at the edges. Think I'll get a new pair soon and then some squatting shoes later on. Been looking at the Adidas Powerperfect II's for some time...

I'm a big fan of those $90 adidas shoes with a barbell on them. Sold my old adidas that i used for olympic lifting for $160 used and bought the powerlifts, I feel like they were better for a raw low bar squat.

Thanks. Upper body went from 'embarrassing' to 'good start' and legs went from 'meh' to 'Robert Forstermann-esque'.

SS isn't the be-all and end-all, but it's dead simple to follow (especially a stripped version with the more complex lifts omitted) and gets beginners away from the dreaded fuck-arounditis that accompanies a lot of accessory intense programs.

Snap chatted picture of gym fit to bro, he told me I looked like a jew in the 80s. feelsbadman

Weight gains + tons of good mornings have made my ass huge. Lolz have followed:

- smashed a sloot the other day. came into bathroom nekkid and she proceeded to bite my ass
- was voted best ass in my hamptons share. panel was all female. judging happened at a bar
- gay dude hit on me at the gym today while I was doing good mornings

Up to 192lbs, going to keep grinding to 200, hold it for a few weeks then start a cut. Really feeling the extra weight, sweating like crazy.

It's a great place for someone who has never touched a barbell to start. Just focus on the compound lifts, technique, and increasing weight. The positive reinforcement of going in every workout and lifting more weight than you did last time is huge. It gets you addicted. I can't imagine a high volume low weight routine would have the same effect. Sub out rows for power cleans if you have solely aesthetic goals. After a few months add in assistance work like curls and calf raises.
