Programming testimonial from the new 181 squat record holder, Derek Wilcox
**Last year at the Pro-am, I helped handle Derek during the squat. He squatted well, but somethings jumped out at me (Adam too and we talked about it during the meet). Basically, if he corrected them, he could add 50lb plus to his squat. He ended up squatting 850 at 198 at the pro-am, and just recently, Derek squatted 935@181 for the biggest squat ever at 181.
I just wanted to say thank you for all the help with my training cycle for my past meet. You helped a skinny kid who really never had much business attempting world records do so successfully. This as a result of your support, advice on technique and peaking at just the right time for the meet. Thanks a ton!
Great news Derek! I'm so glad that you PR'd, while going DOWN a weight class. Incredible! It's been a pleasure helping you and hanging out with you at meets over the years. Congrats!
