Oh Chris, this brings back so many happy memories of training at Darwen weightlifting club in the 60s. Everyone doing their own thing but teaming up on certain exercises such as the bench press. Good times. Had a nice taste of that when i came up to yours with Tony and we did a workout.
Regards,Peter.

This is on a Monday/Thursday training schedule.
The next training day reverse the rep schemes and go heavy on the full squats and light on
the overhand grip deadlifts . I did this with other compound movements like standing presses
and bench presses .Heavy on the press / light on benches (Monday) light press / heavy bench
(Thursday).
Example :
Monday :
Light Squat
Heavy Deadlift
Light Press
DB Row / Pullover (normal set system)
Heavy Bench Press
BB or DB Curls (normal set system) On Thursday sub heavy for light etc.

Well sticks, that looks like a half squat to me. To me a full squat is ATG (Ass To Grass).

It's a perennial argument, I know.

Thanks for the "how to" drawings.

Drawing supposed to represent just below parallel. Where
hammies first make contact with back of calves . This is a
thick dude so contact is earlier than most . Thanks for the
input .

We called these "Fitzies" after
coach Mike Fitzpatrick . He used to do about 20 of these before track
practice . He was 55 years old @ the time !
