ME Squat Day

GAY,planned on testing my max free squat today,worked up and up to 140kg on the bar,I just couldnt hit depth!! I have never had this trouble before (except when I first started).I guess all the close stance ME work I have been doing is fucking with my mojo!! anyways my low back is feeling pain free but I struggled to get a decent arch too.I am really annoyed with how today went.I did 3 singles with 140kg, the last one a quarter squat because I just felt loose as I went down.I think my low back is weak from the injury I have just moved past,I dunno?I am so fucking pissed right now.Finished with rollouts for 2 sets and then some pullthrus.FUCK.

ME Squat Day 7/12/08
Squat 2x1 140kg (all high)
Rollouts 2x10
Pullthrus 1x8 90kg (back felt iffy)

Where you're currently at, you can and quite frankly should be doing more free squatting. In my first year conjugate training, I increased my wide parallel squat almost 100 lbs from a max effort list of olympic, front, wide, and LOW box squatting (med stance). When you get a chance, look back at my old journal and what I did. Whatever the fuck it was, it worked! Full Speed Ahead

Regarding depth on those vids, I think you're really close. It's a mental thing, not physical IMHO. If you focused on going a little deeper, it wouldn't have been too tough.

Your depth is damn close. You're a hair over paralell or right at paralell on some I'd say. I'm not sure why you're surprised that you squatted less when doing free squat? I added 15lb to my PR just by box squatting. I think you need to compare apples to apples.

Anyways, 140kg is great man! I'm not even there yet. Keep it up.
