I told Rick that I wanted to learn to properly Box Squat and Bench, since I knew my form was lacking. I started with the Box Squat and to my surprise, I was able to work up to a 365# 1RM with some light bands. That was awesome. Rick then showed me some Assistance Exercises for my Hamstrings and I did a whole workout using the different exercises. I learned how important hamstrings were to improve my squat.

365#+light bands ? Nice! I can only imagine what sort of things I need to change with respects to my form.... I'd really like to take a trip down to Westside one day.
