I wonder if I could talk my trainer into letting me squat 3 times a week.... I dunno I like punishment :)
I do because I can. I can because I want to. I want to because you said I couldn't.

I've been squatting 3x week and it's great! Although one of those days is a light squat day - no more than 70% of my max.

I'll take your word for it dude :) although I'll be using considerably less weight than my max. I've got my squat stands all set up, I'm physced to get back in the game! I'll hopefully beat some pbs before the summers over!

Hell yeah man :) and yeah pretty much, although I'm trying to keep my weight vaguely the same but lose a bit of fat whilst keeping my strength up and potentially increasing it a bit :)

Nice rack hahaha (I've said that to a few girls in my teenage years).

Only thing you need to do is lose that pad from the bar. Are you a man or a girl Ross?..

Goddamit you guys! This is borderline online bullying hahaha.
In all seriousness though I do get a pretty sore spine/shoulders when I don't use it.. Am I doing something wrong? :/
