    I did my squats and DL today as well as BB Bench press I am assumeing this is what you meant not DB BP, and my Incline DB press.

    I know what you meant with everything except the squats Should I be doing a conventional squat, or what?

    On the DL should I be doing Romanian, conventional, sumo or what Bro?


    When it comes time for me to do lunges should I be doing them bare ( i doubt this ) with a DB, or BB.

    Should I be doing a short stroke lunge or just a standard lunge?

    Im sorry for the questions, and I am sure I am overthinking this I just want to make sure I do it right.

    Coventional and Sumo seem pretty similar to me other than the wider stance with the Sumo. Anyways. Romanion is off the wall I dont really want to try it unless I am supposed to be doing it.

    Well, if you know, then why
    . Well if it's different, so why compare them all? It would have been better if you asked, Should I be doing conventional or sumo? Also, should I be doing Romanian? Well, I don't want to argue or anything but do whatever you feel is good. For me, sumo is alot easier then conventional. Anyways, your not
    to do anything. Just ease up on the weight a bit (for romanian), since it is a tiny bit harder on the back (anecdoctal evidence). Are you tall?

    They just look really difficult on this site http://www.bsu.edu/webapps/strengthlab/exercise.asp


    I mean they show the dude bringing the weight about a foot out from his body looks like its a good way to get hurt.

    summo or conventional should work, it should nto matter, be sure to rotate the two, do bothg, not one or the other.
    Squats should be box or normal.
    use a BB or DBs, either will work, i dunno the difference in lunges, i never do em, i would say do whatever u feel works the best.

    Since you brought it up what is the point of the box in the box squat? Is it just used as a " stop your just right go back up " type thing or what?
