So, you think the walk-off/lift-off helped your squat? To what degree? I practiced with some front squatting today, but doesn't that work your quadricep more than the back squat? I really feel it in my hamstrings and glute when I push the weight up in a back squat. I think I need to work on more hamstring strength, since I've never done any glute-ham raises or deadlifts. I have thick quadricep and glute muscles, but I think I need to bring my hammys up to speed...
I'm gonna experiment for the next few weeks by not being so merticulous about pre and post workout nutrition. I just read an article on Robb Wolf's site that influenced me. I never really did feel good after eating sweet potatoes... Usually bloated and never seemed to make much of a difference in the gym. My biggest boost in the gym comes from managing my stress, sleeping well and recovering enough. I don't think that one sweet potato after every workout really contributes to any major degree... Similiar thoughts?
Today I was super pumped to just go and dolly around the gym. :-)
