    I would assume the same principles apply. Seriously read the article, took me ages but was pretty informative.
    I haven't read the whole article yet but one of the things it says is that weightlifters should not become too strong at the back squat as this will lead to an imbalance in quad and hamstring strength; if the quads are too strong relative to the hamstrings, then the athlete will be slower and less powerful.

    What uni are you at? I'd love a uni gym with five squat racks. Unfortunately mine has 0.

    Terrible session tonight:

    Squats:

    80 x 5
    100 x 5
    120 x 3

    These felt absolutely terrible, no hip drive or anything, absolutely terrible, so stopped there.

    Leg press:

    170 x 10
    170 x 10

    Meh. Haven't leg pressed in over a year... felt awkward, though.

    RDLs:

    90 x 6
    120 x 5
    130 x 5
    130 x 5

    These weren't that hard, but my grip was really struggling.

    No straps for RDL? They're pretty much *the* movement I use them for + rows.. but I don't do those much.

    Never RDLed more than 95, and with 95, hook grip is good for probably hours. I don't row nearly enough to challenge my grip. I'll use straps next time though.

    I've got ****ing hundreds of logs on sites all over the internet. It's like I've had a w*** and my jizz is my training log, and it's went everywhere. Here is a list of places that I have a training log at, or used to have one at:

    Here - still operating after almost two years - longest running log in Fitness baby!

    Iron Addicts - finished after I got banned by some moron mod (best thing that's ever happened to my training knowledge and intelligence)

    Intense Muscle - similar attitude to IA's except that it's full of bodybuilding homos who spout utter broscience so I can't be assed to update it

    BB.com - still up and running, although no-one comments in it hardly

    Rip's forum - same as above

    Marunde Muscle - kept on forgetting about it so just decided to stop

    Lyle's forum - same as bb.com and Rip's forum

    Sugden - just started, but had some chitchat

    Someone left it on racked (morons) after doing shrugs probably. It was too high for rack-pulls (and who rack pulls 180kg anyway?). Tingled and hurt a little during the hold, but nothing really more after 10-15 minutes. But on the fat cheap bars, 140kg ***** my thumbs up for hours.

    I can be a bit of a pain sometimes ... What would make it easier is if computers had a function that 'copied' text that the user desired and then, with the touch of a button, 'pasted' that text into another text box. Would certainly save a lot of typing.

    Sounds like a nice project you could do over the summer.
