    Thank you for your feedback Mediocrates.

    The farthest depth possible while maintaining safety is when the back of the thighs contact the calves (it can certainly be less for other reasons). The reason is that the contact of the calves and hamstrings becomes a fulcrum point and your knee joint is pulled apart by continued compression of the thigh/calf contact area.
    Yes, that is what I define ATF or ATG as, you can't really go to floor.

    I would also take care to define "steady controlled speed," as it should be employed in all movements in a quantitative fashion.
    Not too sure what that means exactly.

    There is no reason to do these, aside for desire to be injured.
    Please tell me a better way to develop explosive jumping power.



    If you're going to split upper body pulling and pushing, then do so. The point of a split is to train HARDER, not train MORE.
    Shrugs...I usually keep this light to get blood flow to the area.
    Otherwise, as you can see it isn't an exact split.


    See jump squats.
    Please tell me a better way to develop pick-a-guy-up-then-drop-him power.

    Also, please see this link.



    This entire routine sounds like it would take a rather large amount of time. If this training routine is to represent a week's time, you do more sets in one week than I do in 2 months.
    On day 1 I spend about 60-80 min in the gym. Depending on how I'm feeling.
    Day 2-3 I spend about 30-45 min.

    Then again I have the time. :)

    If your only goal is to rack up poundage on your squat, then MAYBE, MAYBE you have an argument here. If your goal is to have functional strength to apply to other pursuits, then you don't and STFU.

    So you are saying sumo squats have minimal application to MA than regular shoulder width squats?

    Also, doing regular squats today I just don't feel the same strain on my hamstrings and glutes as when doing sumo squats. Oh well, I hit up the gluteal machine after anyways.

    *sigh*. Piz, I wish you could come train with me just once. I'd give your legs a hurting like they've never had before.

    In regards to 1 rep max, I have always prefered 2 rep max, to see my max poundage, something I only use to calculate working load, after that, there is no reason to do them, as you progress and add weight to your working load, you are, by default getting stronger.

    Piz, there is a chart that allows you to calculate your max weight, based on how many reps you do with a certain weight, do you have it? want it?

    As for sumo squats, I have heard of sumo deadlifts, but sumo squats ??
    I always squat wider than shoulder width, just because it feels the most comfortable.
    You need to find a stance that allows you good form and feels natural.

    I have never been a big fan of Plyo's and ploymetric type exercises, but that just me.

    I take it from your routine, you don't work to failure, right?

    You might want to try plyometric stair jumps. Stand on one step above the very bottom step, hop down one step with both feet, jump up 3 steps with both feet (4 steps for you, since you're taller than me). Do this until you get to the top of the stairs, run back down to the bottom of the stairs and do it again.

    1rm means to me, 1.3-1.5 rm.
    No need to stress yourself too much, especially on those deads.

    Yes and no....
    Sometimes, for smaller things like my arms. Or things that don't seem to stress my shoulders, like lat pull downs and ab work, haha.

    Doing the same thing over and over again is not optimal for gains.
    I agree that performing the exact same movements in the same order with the same resistance for months and months is not optimal.
    There is only one element of the above equation that really needs frequent variance, however.


    Not too sure what that means exactly.
    Define what a steady, controlled speed is for every one of your movements and adhere to it.

    If you want to improve your jumping ability, go jump. If you want to improve the force of your jump, train the involved musculature in an effective fashion.
    There is no such thing as "power" to be developed, nor is there any sort of "explosive" trait to the body. There is skill and there is force output. Skill is absolutely specific and force output is absolutely general.


    Shrugs...I usually keep this light to get blood flow to the area.
    Do you have a problem with clotting?


    On day 1 I spend about 60-80 min in the gym. Depending on how I'm feeling.
    Day 2-3 I spend about 30-45 min.

    Having the time is different than needing the time.
