    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.

    I'm thinking man am I glad I disregarded rippletits advice

    the second rep I might ponder all the ripply hamstrings the low bar squat + gomad has created

    on rep three, fuck who am I kidding I don't even do 3 rep sets

    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.
