    I squatted 275 today on my 5th set of 5. I think I can do more than that too, so next week I'm going to try and rep 300 for 5. Kind of a big deal for me since I've only been lifting again for 3 weeks, and I've never squatted over 200 before (never really squatted at all before). :o

    That's all. Nothing to see here, move along. :wiggle:

    make sure you don't cheat yourself just to get high numbers.

    Depth/form is more important than weight.

    I'm definitely going deep. I was atleast parallel, if not lower on the early sets. I'm sure to watch my form in the mirror.

    ?

    I used to be a sprinter/hurdler, I used to do Muay Thai, I've just never actively lifted legs or squatted.

    skip the whole parallel since you are not competing; lower the weight and go atg for a better leg workout
