I see a lot of dudes like this at the gym and just makes me really curious. *ahem* fujitl;dr
I am happy with the strength/noob gains but I need to balance my overall body proportions
Squat and deadlift with a such a wide stance that your legs aren't actually doing anything. Was squatting in a nice hammer strength rack a few days ago, I think it's a fairly common one, but the base of it's raised off the floor so only the 4 corners of it were touching the floor. I was squatting bare foot so I could get my feet underneath the rack. Dat feel when your feet are wider then the plates.
Srs I only train the squat and deadlift for strength, between 3-5 reps for squats usually with very long breaks and few sets and then some lighter high rep assistance like straight leg deads with 225 for like 15-20 and then bro out the upper body stuff. High volume, tonnes of pressing movements and pull ups.
