really could do with some help guys!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Did legs today doing back squats wich i havent done for about 3 months the thing is ive been doing front sqauts instead ive got my front squats up 2 110kg 3x6 with really good form.Today i tried back squats and only managed 120kg 3x5 not happy as i thought id be able to do a lot more as front squats are supposed to be harder wonder if u could give me some advise on back squats thinking of changing back 2 front squats as they feel more of a natural movement 2 me but that would be the easy option i guess.Here a bit of info on my back squat form
1)bar on lower traps/rear delts
2)shoulder width stance
3)heel are on a 1inch block i know this is not ideal but had a lot of ankle injurys used to use a 2inch but working hard to get off them.
4)think this is where my problem lies,i squat 2 paralell or just below but i do all my exs really slow and controlled so at the bottom im basicaly at a total stop at the bottom and no momentom its become a bit of a habit on all exes??????????
Example of other lifts
DEADS 175kg
stiff deads 115kg
bench 135kg and thats why im so p**sed off bench more than i can squat sad!!!!
Plus im not an upper body king i work hard on my legs and consider them 2 be 1 of my best body parts HOPE U CAN HELP!!!!!!!!!!!CHEERS
