Why do so many people fall for the maximal strength/SS troll?
There's literally no reason to aim for a 4plate+ squat unless you want to be good only at lifting a barbell up and down. For sports and real life there's no carry over to squatting that much. Law of diminishing returns is in full effect for that.
For people that want to compete in bodybuilding and powerlifting, I get it, but those "sports" are for faggot aspies anyways....for people that train to look good, feel good, have a carryover to real life, there's NO reason to do it. It's seriously so impractical and unimpressive. Wow. Congrats. You moved a bar slowly with slightly more weight than yesterday. Cool. How fast can you run? How high can you jump? How flexible are you? Are you coordinated? How's your bodily awareness? Lol.
I stopped aiming for max back squat/deadlift strength, and I am SO happy.

This was something like two weeks ago. I tried working out alone but for now I do body weight stuff at home or go late to the gym because I suddenly start sobbing.
Fuck you, Death, for taking the wrong ones. Fuck you for being unfair.
When I'm done studying I'll kick your ass with my gains, and I'll do so with a smile on my face.
