REJOICE, ye mighty, for it is the most GLORIOUS day of the week!

REJOICE, ye mighty, for it is the most GLORIOUS day of the week! It is the day of the leg; the day of the almighty SQUAT, the LEG EXTENSION (peace be upon him), and the venerable HAMSTRING CURL. Hark the call of the church of gains and go forth; declare your fealty for all to hear at the sacred standing calf raise, and bless your lower legs with mass and vascularity. lo, for on the fifth day the lord did create the squat rack; and did he load it up with three plates; and with them did he do 5x5; and he sayeth onto his followers: "verily I say unto you: more plates more dates". - Squatalonians 4:20

    Is the squat the most mentally tough exercise there is? I hit a 170kg ORM a couple weeks ago and a I recently failed a 160 single simply due to not feeling as prepared for the lift

      There is that fear of dipping, I'm guessing it's caused by our instinct that we think we might fall... especially with this weight.
      With isolation exercises you're not really at risk in that sense

      How do I perform this fucking movent properly while having the worse hip mobility ever and popping knees that hurt due to years of bad form and sometimes feel like the kneecap is about to pop out?

      Just make sure you have no foot pronation.
      If you knees track over toes but you still have foot pronation your form will look correct but you'll still technically be getting valgus and fuck your knees up.

      m8, i just started too, i couldn't do 30kg last week, turns out my form is shitty.
      i came back today and practiced a lot and made sure my form was good, watch a lot of rippletoes videos like in the sticky
      today i did 40kg easily and maybe could have done more but ill try that next time
      use the safety bars and practice without the bar, then practice with the empty bar. use your phone to record and watch yourself
      add some weight until you struggle on the 5th lift

        Also don't rush to add weight, keep it light to get used to the movement. Slowly add weight.

      front squats feel great on my lower back. After fucking it up a while ago I am focusing on progressing on front squats instead of good ole back squats.

    I come seeking guidance for gains despite my ailment. I suffer from the dreaded patellar tendinitis due to my high riding kneecaps and long patella tendon. How doth I train without mine knees giving out or dislocating again? It would seem that bending near the 90 degrees is the breaking point.

      See a good physio, an older one who specialises in knees and feet. There a lot of mediocre physios who at best make educated guesses and see what sticks that end up being a waste of time and money. There is almost always rehab work that can basically cure most forms of patellar tendonitis but a generic one from the internet wont work, you need a plan tailored to your specific biomechanics. If you ignore it it will only get worse and lead to more problems and possibly surgery
