    Humble pie aint so bad.

    April 10, 2018, 6:13 pm

    Squat day, i left pride at the door. I lowered the weight concentrated on form and squatted ATG .  135 is all i went up to, but i feel it in variuos smaller support muscles.  Now i will continue and build from here. It was a good day at the gym. πŸ˜€ 

    Im just trying to make coach Scott proud.

    Haha I love it @herculesinwyo! Going ATG is definitely making me proud of you man! You get more gains with more ROM 😁 Plus I know you'll be back to heavy weights again with ATG form in no time!

    Hours later I feel it in my Achilles so that tells us ankles will need to adapt. I got this though.

     

    Thanks for the encouragement, I realized 135 ATG is way more beneficial than 225 to parallel or slightly past.

    I will get momma to record a set sometime soon. So I can share

    My deal is, imdont lie squatting ass to grass , but if we do not make ourselves do things we dont like we will never improve. Soon enough i will love squatting low. Im looking to do exercises that are not my favorite and even add new ones i have never done before.

    That is how we become beasts , doing things other people are scared to do.

     

    Here we go. 🏎

    Right on @herculesinwyo!! Obviously you want to enjoy your time in the gym.. but sometimes you have to do things that suck haha.. at leasst until you get used to them and they become your favorites!

     

    The fact your achillies was sore might be to do with ankle mobility, yeah. So make sure you are working on getting them more flexible when you can!

    THANK YOU SCOTT!!! THANK YOU! ( update).

     

    Todays squats were amazing! I have been doing your stretches all week and the difference has been huge. Todays squats were Ass-Hot-spankable! ATG even lower than bfeore, weight was perfectly distributed over my center foot and heels, no forward lean at all, lower back felt nothing bad at all. It was So good ! I am doing things i thought i may never do again! Years back i stopped lifing when i had a tiba plateau fracture knee dislocation combo ( work related). My flexability is back, my knees are nice and strong and i am squatting deeper than i have ever in my life!

     

    You helped fix my bench ( bum shoulder)

    you helpped fix my squats ( bum knee and bad form)

    you helpped fix my deadlifts, see above LOL

    thank you sir you are a God Send just when i needed your coaching most.

    I will be a customer for the long haul ( as budget allows) but i will do my best to pay you back and make you proud!

    Thanks man really i cant say it enough you made my gym time so much better and productive.

    People stopped to watch when i squatted today and it wasnt because i was doing it wrong! I have my confidence back, my sense of well being back and im getting one heck of a body too.

    I just want you to know how much you are appreciated i am sure you help hundereds that you never hear from so i am here to say it for them.

     

     

    Thanks again from all your z-warriors.

    I was mistaken , today was chest and shoulder day, i will get legs done in the morning before work. I did the stretches today though and i am at full range of motion now for sure.

    SCOTT!!!

    Today was brutally excellent!

    Squats were even deeper, more weight more reps and more sets! I lowered the guards more after this pic!

    Getting my grandpa gains OH YEAH.

    Should have seen my last rep! I had to get primal to finish it

     

    Thanks coaches!

    Nice @herculesinwyo! The leg gains are coming along nicely I see 😁 Them ATG squats are paying off! Having to go primal on your last rep is a good thing - it means you pushed yourself and left nothing in the tank.. love that!

     

    And don't worry about posting too much - I love seeing all the interaction on the site!

    Well this week improvements continue, slower than i like but i have to remember i have never squatted like this before.

    Hips still get a bit of aches from this, but they will adapt.

     

    Adapt, overcome and the muscles will have to grow to accommodate haha.

     

    Here we go food and nap time. πŸ˜€

    Thanks scott. I'm seeing changes. At this rate I'm gonna have to buy some Bahbell apparel Jean's. Right now I have some levi pants I had to up the waist size so i can get a pair that accommodates a squatters butt and bigger legs.
