    I've slept 5H, really bad.
    Worst deadlift to date, 220kg for one instead of favhe.
    Impossible to get that thing up when 217.5kg went up no problem last week.
    Go figure.
    Back wound still open, I had to do high bar squats.
    I've still tried to apply the instructions bellow.
    I've added inputs from IPB (3 and 4) and Jovan (16).
    Thanks IPB for this detail (3) that I did not see at all and cannot explain.
    Anyway, it should be mostly fixed now.
    Sorry for the « music » in the videos.

    Id                            Instruction                                         Source

    high bar squats, 90°, 140kg, 5 reps
    high bar squats, 45°, 140kg, 5 reps

    Lets check which instruction I could not follow.

    Low bar squat position                         : Obviously no.
    Wrists are straigth                            : It appears to be much better, but not consistent enough.
    I need to keep squatting light and slow and focusing on the wrists.
    I hope drilling these things high bar will not make things harder when going low bar again.
    We will see…

    If you have better ideas, please let me know.

    Thank you,

    Don't post your training log shit in this forum. That's not what it is for.

    I thought it would have been valuable to measure just how long it takes to get from my initial squats to "Textbook Squats".
    That's why I've put details and efforts in these posts.
    This pattern must be common: train by yourself with the books, learn less than perfect squats, unlearn it, learn it again.
    It took me already weeks and an injury.
    Finding an online coach would have probably been much more efficient.
    Your house, your rules: won't post my log shit there again.
