Comments:

* I am starting to get to the point where I don’t mind failing. I have learned proper technique in which I can throw the weight off my back without consequence other than it crashes to the ground like thunder. It would be better to succeed but I can’t always add 5 lbs to my lift each workout. In fact it is progressively getting harder to add weight to my back squat and maintain full depth. As the weight increases I tend to shorten the range of motion. This is also why I always reserve at least a set or two dedicated to the box squat to properly assess strength gains.
