internal organs feel like they are going to come out your nose?Anyone who has ever been to Westside Barbell knows about the safety squat bar. None of the specifications make any sense. It resembles a safety squat bar, but is a totally different entity. The neck pad is the same material as your grandparents leather couch. It smells like an old band aid and the faux leather is all frayed. If you look close enough you can see the blood stains from a thousand popped neck zits. The bar sits way to high on your neck and makes JUGGERNAUT SQUAT MANUAL21

135 feel like 505 pounds. Either you control the bar or it will control you.So, how did I use this to squat 1060? I would use this bar for sets of 5 raw off a 12 inch box. I’m not sure if it made me any stronger, but it taught me to confront my fear. It taught me to think when my ribs felt like they were braking. It taught me to hold air while swallowing vomit. It taught me to continue my mental cues while blood was pouring out of my nose. So, that’s my big secret. I learned to think and control my body when it wanted to shut off.

WORLD RECORD SQUAT TRAININGBY COREY HAYESComing freshly off of a 65lb competition squat PR in the December North of the Border meet, it was time to go back to the drawing board to create a plan to take over the world….er, I mean world record.To start, I needed to get her re-adjusted to the high volume that is placed on her during the off-season. We also took this time to bring up some weak points by training completely raw, as in no belt, no wraps, no nothing’.JUGGERNAUT SQUAT MANUAL23Caitlyn Trout has squatted 160kg (352 pounds) in the 123 pound class for the World Record raw w/ wraps only a year into her powerlifting career

As you see, we kept the weight the same for the entire training month, only lowering for the deload. The work comes from increasing the sets and/or reps each week which in-turn increases the total tonnage lifted each week.Next came the normal off-season volume phases which are quite vanilla and not very flashy but are what really increase Caitlyns lifts like no other. The total number of daily lifts stay at a flat rate (around 75) and we adjust the total weight weekly, striving to add 10lbs a week or about 3 percent. All
