My humble advice is to only go as low as your back naturally lets you. STOP when your spine begins to curve under your butt. You always have to have an arc in your back, as soon as it hunches at all its over.

i'm not a technical expert in this stuff. Your advice sounds good but I don't see why one wouldn't just choose a weight that they could both keep their back strait and go deep into the actual position. I'm pretty sure that is what they would recommend at my cf gym. So in addition to yelling at people to go deeper they yell about any form/alignment stuff. Usually If I can not go down with a weight *say 225 its because its too much weight for those muscles. in other words it does not effect my form to go down that way with a lighter weight. I don't think i've seen a single person at my gym that can't do a proper body-weight air squat all the way down deep, but people will load up weight beyond what they can get into that deeper position, hence getting yelled at.

Personally these days i prefer doing front squats, because I know for certain I can't load up the weight and physically be able to lift it even with improper form, so it gives me an easier time going deep into the position in the 75-150 range. squatting 300+ doesn't really appeal to me anyway as I can already hardly fit into many jeans at my waist size anymore.

Miles how do you eat? 1Meal a day? Don't you get hungry after long activities ? provide me an example of your typical day please and the meals please !! you do ZC?

I usually eat 1 meal a day of animals only. Typical day: Get up in the morning, don't plan to eat, ever. Then get some energy boost and start using it, and think I probably will end up eating later, then be active either by running/parkour, or some indoor too like weights. I might do this for 1-4hrs, running around. When I get back I'd sit down for a bit, have some water, then I'll think of something else to do like either go out and do more of the same.. running around and stuff, or maybe go practise archery, meet up with a friend/s or just run a different place like into the woods if I was running around the town, climb trees if I was climbing on buildings(30mins-2hrs maybe). Then when I get back I'll stand for a bit, have some water maybe, then go to the shop for some meat. I'll get like 1-2kg of meat. Sometimes I pick up fruits when they're heavily reduced just because I can't pass all that energy for so little price, but I prefer if I don't see any =) Although I always look. I'll get back with my meat, put it in the fridge, then I'll sit down, do some work on the computer, go on this forum and some game called travian, talk a bit(all few hrs). Then I'll start thinking about the meat and it'll get stronger and stronger the acid in my stomach etc.. and I'll go eat. Then I'll spend a while afterwards just sitting around watching tv, getting thirsty and drinking water, pissing... until I feel stable. Then I'll go up to the computer, do a bit of work, then get tired start reading this forum until I'm ready to fall asleep, go to bed, fall asleep, sleep for 10-12hrs.

I understand where you are coming from, but where I am from, nobody can do an air squat without their butt hunching under them when they are all the way down. This butt hunch is fine when it is body or low weight, but when you are trying to go down all the way with 300 lbs and your butt hunches, its dangerous.

I am starting to like full goblet squats more because you can never go so heavy that your body will lose form, and the natural form makes all the muscles work.

I'd just thought Id share with you guys this routine I made by incorporating Dr. William Wong's minimalist strength training approach. This routine has given me lots of strength, muscle, and success.

Monday
Full weighted chins 3x5/6/7
weighted ring dips  3x5/6/7
Squat                    3x5/6/7

Wednesday
Full chin ups 10 sets of 10 or more
Ring dips      10 sets of 10 or more
Deadlift           3x5/6/7

Friday
Full weighted chins 3x5/6/7
Overhead press      3x5/6/7
Squat                    3x5/6/7


The 5/6/7 are the reps wong recommends. The strategy is you do 3 sets of a certain weight for 5 reps and when completed 3 sets of 5, you move on to 3 sets of 6 and so on until you get 3 sets of 7, in which case you would increse the weight and start with a higher weight at 3 sets of 5 again.

Self-employed, affiliate marketing, like those trolls who advertise supplements here ;) I spend like 2-3 hrs a day during the week but I do like 5-6hrs a day on the week-end.. Before that I was doing sport full-time funded, and before that I was in high-school.. So I've never had a proper job yet.

Haven't tried them in years. Hurt my shoulder(s) and so I try to avid things like hand-stand push-ups.

That said, I was never much good at them. Only did a few per set.

dynamic stretch: stiff legged bear crawls, spider-man stretches, pvc shoulder mobility, 10 air squats
- bench: 135 x 5, 185 x 5, 205 x 3
- light push press, 10 @ 80 lbs x 3
- chest cable work 3 x 6 @ i dunno, 70..but the weights are all funky on those things.
- 10 burpees
- 3 x 25 lb weighted dips x 6; followed by 10 reg dips
- 10 burpees
- 'hammer strength' sitting bench - 6 @ 95 lbs x 3
- 10 burpees
- light deadlifts `10 @ 135 x 3

busted out a 500 m row in 1:37.5 which was my fastest time ever. I felt pretty crappy doing it and I had eaten just an hour or two earlier and my stomach felt a little weird. its a pretty dam good time but I should be able to improve.
-dynamic stretch
6 @ 45 lb weighted pullups x 3
6 @ cable curl with a strait bar combined w/ as many pullups combined w/ 20 lateral jumps over a 25 lb plate x 3 with 30 second rests
rope machine on highest setting, standing for 3:00 minutes broken into 4 sections with 4 x 10 air squats
- 3 x 36" box jumps x 10 in between
   3 x 10 bicep curls with a weighted bar holding the bar like a staff against my forearm and moving slowly (just sort of made this up but seems good)
- stretch

pretty quick and efficient. biked 7 miles in the snow earlier which started out magically in the daytime then slowly sucked.

I tried to run to my gym during the blizzard we are having

Since i've been doing really intense 500 m rows to start my workouts, I thought I'd try to go balls out the entire distance and see if I could make it (its probably a little under a mile). When I first moved into my place in the summer I tried more or less to do the same thing to a similar destination and only made it half way.

This time I made it all the way at high speed in the snow then since my gym was closed - duh, turned around and did the same thing.

Didn't time it but the interior cardio stuff I am doing is clearly working, never had good pacing on runs.

I hate running in snow.

its ok for me, always feels ominous like some horror film. keeps me moving. heh. I wouldn't do distance for reasons as per the winter running thread.

---

- did a bunch of strait-legged bear crawls to warm up. maybe 100 m.almost pulled a muscle in my stomach :/

- used the strait rack assist on bench: 5@185, 5@205, 4!@225, 2!@235 lb

- chest flies using the pulley system w/20 lateral jumps over 35 lb plate X 3 with as little rest as possible

- 10 36" box jumps w/ 10 burpees x 3 (can't believe how this gets my heart exploding)

- 45 lb dumbbell presses w/ tricep pull-downs x 3

- slow 500 m row, more crawls, shoulder mobility and foam roll.
