Paul Oneid – Okay Squatting

I am currently in a VERY long off-season.  Mentally and physically, I need a break.  I’ll have lots on the go the next few months business wise, not to mention that I will be getting married, so this is the perfect time to enjoy an off-season.  I am still working with Jon Byrd for my training and Tucker for my diet and feel stronger than ever.  My next meet will be the EPC (IPL) Finals December 10, 2017 up here in my hometown of Ottawa, ON. I’ll be lifting at 220lbs and leaving with a nice fat pay check – BET THAT!

SI was feeling alright today, so decided to give ‘er a go on some squats.  I warmed up well and actually felt awesome on this day.  Still having the same problems with setting my feet, but on the Cambered bar work I tried some different things and figured out where I was making mistakes and consequently screwing up my squat.  I wasn’t nearly as shifty, but it definitely wasn’t my most crisp effort.  Next week I will be right on track.

Goal for today was to feel things out and if it felt good, I wanted to beat my previous triples.  I did that, for 2 sets.  It was fine, but I know I can be better.  Yes, I know my knees cave and its a bad habit.  It is made worse by my foot position.  It got fixed when I changed my foot position.  I will prove it to you next week, I swear.  It won’t happen again.  I feel guilty enough without you yelling at me.  I’M FINE!
