Squats are getting heavy for me too. I think I'm going to reduce the weights in the first four sets, so that I'm not so worn out before the last heavy set.

that could be an option but i think it's hard to compare the htwo of us on that one since you're already much stronger than i am. :D

i guess it's normal that one can't always make progress on all three lifts equally. the squat was always the the easiest lift to make progress for me, now it gets harder but therefore the deads and bench seem to go up easier.
my training.

I wish I could squat like you man. Your progress is awesome. However you should tell your gf to stop calling me skinny :wink:

thanks man! haha, i don't think that she means skinny like no muscles but more like skinny in the sense of no body fat at all, which is true and as far as i think pretty good. ;)
