    If so, in your opinion do you think it's necessary or just helpful for squats at higher weights? Keep in mind I'll be doing High bar squats. ...

    The OHP has been my focus as of late. I love repping out 10-3 reps. OHP has a huge and obvious carry over to Olympic lifting, looking sweet sans shirt, and general awesomeness.
