Still Learning

My Squats lately have been bothering me. I haven't been making any gains in over a year so I've been analyzing everything. Today I widened my stance a little and things felt much better. I think I narrowed my stance because of the constant adductor problems. Time to get serious and get ready for Nationals with a new and improved form.

Warm Up
Leg Swings and Stretching.
Squats - bar/12 reps, 70kg/12 reps, 120kg/8 reps.

Power Phase
Squats (no belt, no sleeves) - 5 sets/1 rep/170kg.

Pump Phase
Squats (no belt, no sleeves) - 6 sets/4 reps/120kg.

Wide stance felt great. I will continue to run with this and hopefully I will get the gains I have worked for.
