I've actually brought my stance in but just a lil bit. I found that I got better speed out of the hole when not going super wide.

My heels are now about 3" outside shoulder width.

 

When I used to go super wide, my hip flexors and adductors would be very sore the day after. The hip flexor would have the same kind of tight feeling that you get when you've sat down for like 5 hours in a row, like after a really long gaming session or when you step out of a long flight. I think you know what I mean. Anyway, I hate tight hip flexors.

 

Almost all of that has gone away now that I don't squat as wide, although I still go wider than most people. I've never had pains on the outside of the hip like some people get.

 

I can add that my hip mobility is pretty damn good. I can almost do a chinese split after some warmups and a stance out by the plates still feels too narrow for me when I pull sumo.

 

Hmm... seems like I have the same problem as you. I have a tendency to shift the weight forward on the way up on heavy squats. The bar path bows forward on the ascent. Not a huge problem and I can still reach depth fine, but it could become worse as I increase the weights. Maybe getting a pair of lifting shoes isn't a good idea after all, although I could still use them for front squats where I am lacking ankle dorsiflexion.

Gotcha. I think about 3" outside of shoulders is around where I was thinking of. I've seen some people squat wide in oly shoes, you need really good hips to do that heh.

I used a bodybugg during my cut, but it actually just came out to the exact same maintenance as I was estimating before hand. For me, that was BW x 15 and an additional 300-400 calories on workout days. Go for the higher if you're doing high volume. Since you weigh a bit more than I did, I think 3000 calories is a good starting point.

I've never had a problem with food. I don't really get what you mean, but for instance, I've never liked fast food or unhealthy stuff. Pretty much never crave it. I naturally eat very "clean" all the time. One thing though, I've noticed that Leangains and Carb backladong can have you develop a weird relationship with food. I'm thinking about the aspect of cycling certain macros and fasting / eating. The huge portion sizes can also lead to gorging if you don't have good self control.

As for what I ate, it was pretty much whatever combination of the usual "clean" foods that I wanted that day. I made sure to get some kind of treat every day, but still a good one that fit my macros. For me that was typically cottage cheese with berries or some kind of protein ice cream made out of casein powder or something similar. I always had it as the last meal of the day so I had something to look forward to.

My main carb sources were potatoes (regular and sweet), white rice, oatmeal, low fat ice cream / sorbet and low fat cereals. Potatoes provides the best satiety by far, while cereals are the worst.

Start by doing the same workout split as you've used so far. If you can still progress, that's great. Only change it up once you start to stall. Then I would reduce the volume, not the frequency or intensity.

I did no cardio whatsoever during my cut, apart from walking 45 mins to 2 hours around the city on my off days. I also took the bike everywhere I went instead of the bus, and so on. Tried to stay moderately active throughout the days, but no typical cardio in the gym or anything like that.

Looking back, I will do more cardio next time I cut. At one point my energy levels were so from the low calories that I had a hard time concentrating and performing in school. Then I think it's better to either take a diet brake for a week or be more active.

I can't say what type of cardio is the best, but I like tempo work over HIIT. Read these:

Lifting partner got a whiff of my rebhands after I took them off during squats last weekend.  He almost collapsed at the small.

I'm having some weird pain in my shoulders. It's not terribly painful, but uncomfortable, I first felt it benching yesterday, and I woke up this morning and it's kind of a dull aching pain, raising my arms over my head aggravates it. It's pretty much right above the crease of my armpit.

Woah, get out of here with that volume work buddy. Someone pull the overtraining alarm.

Seriously though, my workouts are always heavy volume and last 1.5 - 2hrs. I love it.
