    When you do them right. And I feel better. Of course, not as much weight as I could before with a half squat. ;)

    Last year squating incorrectly (halfway down, almost to parallel), got to 250lbs (4x45,2x25) x10.
    This year, today, 140lbs (2x45,2x25) x5, with correct form.

    I don't think I'm maxing out though. I'll be happy when I hit 3x45 plates on each side, and then go from there.

    i don't understand what you're talking about with all these numbers... overall poundages are fine, and you should be counting the weight of the bar unless you're doing smith squats. in which case you should be counting the number of balls you have. If the number is anything above 0, then you should ditch the smith machine and start doing real squats.

    So you were putting 2.5lb plates on a bar to get to 250? Why?

    I'm not counting the weight of the bar. Add 45 to all numbers if you want it with the bar. So 185lbs total, correct form. Who the fuck does squats with a smith machine?

    Look on the bright side - your feet could hurt.
