I'm going backwards. Really wasn't happy with the depth of my squats so I've opened up my footing so I can get down more. I think I was barely squating parrallel to the ground before so I've dropped the weights back down to 55kg.

Squats: 55kg 5x5
Overhead Press: 32.5kg 5x5
Bench Press: 45kg 5x3, 47.5kg 5x2 (working up to 5x5)
Deadlift: 80kg 5x1

Just ordered Roberts book, looking forward to receiving it!

Ached all over yesterday, had to keep pulling my shoulder blades back to click something inbetween. Assume my shoulders are slouching forward, maybe I need to work more on my back muscles.

Are you pointing your toes straight ahead, or letting them point outward? I have hip flexibility issues (that I'm working on), and an experienced powerlifter looked at my form and told me that if I let my toes point a bit more outward, it would get easier to go all the way down to/past parallel, and he was right!

Hey Medman, I'm pointing them outward slightly! I really need to video myself but its a small gym with mirrored walls so not sure other people would be comfortable with that. Need to find a quiet time if I can.

Still not happy about my squats. Might try and video on Friday. All my weight seems to be on my front feet. I'm curling my toes up but I still feel like the weight is on the balls of my feet rather than my heels.

Thought I'd stop in and say hello. :)

Lots of folks on here seem to be squat experts and are great at offering advice after viewing a video. That would probably help you out a lot.

I'll be changing from working the standard 9-5 soon and going onto shift work.

Anyone got any experience of working out around this or any advice on when to fit work outs in, how many etc. I'll be doing an 8 day week as seen in the image. Any thoughts much appreciated.
