    Best thing is to make appointments with a friend, which hopefully is better than you in the exercise.

    The first few times are always worst. It's good to have someone to push your back at that time
    The best in life is free

    I did "power training" for over a year but I am now taking a two month break to let my body rest a bit.

    So no, I'm not active at the moment.

    As per my avatar, here's a 375 pound Zercher squat. Yeah, I make it to the gym periodically. I just need to run more often.

    Ever try an overhead squat? Does wonders for your entire body, and will improve your squats for all variants. You will be able to use a lot less weight than you are probably used to. In fact, doing a single overhead squat with 50 lbs may be a battle. As I understand it, you bench at least a little which means you probably don't have the shoulder range of motion to do it easily.

    I walk the dog if that counts. She's a border collie so she's very active and needs long walks and lots of exercise.

    With plates under my heels I can manage 115 on overheads, but my balance really is awful for them. Shoulder flexibility isn't too bad actually. I try and stretch out periodically to avoid injury, although I definitely bench heavy. Got 365 today on flat and 315 for a pair of triples on decline. 405 by fall, that's my goal!

    I do oly lifts once in a while. Lately it's been dumbbell snatches with a 110 or a 120, again my balance is balls so I do very little with the bar.

    SuperSon!c, zerchers are BRUTAL. My forearms are bruised up like crazy. Here's the lift in motion, although admittedly it wasn't as clean a lift as it shoulda been, because the bar rolled down my arms at the bottom of it. Here it is in motion: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UYI1kTL64yI

    Fun to read over... I am not a musclebound like others but I walk 30 minutes a day going to and from my job and mountain bike on the weekends.
