Default Thanks

Guys thanks so much for the help,

I just joined the IAWLA and am going to compete this year . Cant wait..

So Im going to follow the advice given, and really up the volume.

I now realised between bringing my squat up from 90- 117 in mostly 2.5 kg jumps and a 3 5kg jumps I neglected the front squat entirely and was only doing power versions of the lifts so that maybe explains why I have ended up here with weak quads.

Thanks so much for everything, awesome cue by the way with the traps.

Kind of ironic you giving that advice Greg I think read something recently where you said that same thing , maybe i'm reading too much and not doing enough!

Thanks Hugh

No worries Hugh, just sharing the knowledge, and good luck in your competitions.

Knowing where you went wrong is a great place to start, and knowing how to correct it is even better. You've been given some great advice, so make sure that you take note, and you'll improve very quickly.

Gareth
