Noted. I would probably have gone this route if my squat numbers weren't so low. I could handle a temporary drop if I was approaching 400.

Thursday June 9th

Front Squat
45x10
95x5
115x5
135x3
175x2
205x3x3
Wide Stance Box Squat 185x10


Something magical has been happening the last two squat workouts. My knees have been staying out without my having to really try, or even think about it. I think the wide stance squats are doing their work. Wide stance squats were hard today though, I dont know if it was the extra volume on tuesday or just that I'm hitting a wall with 10 pound jumps, but I'll try one more 10 pound jump.
