Question by Golfer 2008: How can I use more weight on the barbell squat and gain confidence?
I am a teeanger who has only used the barbell squat exercises a few times. I now know that my limit is 80kg, however I had a slight accident attempting to do 90kg. :/
Anyways, what specific exercises can I do (besides the barbell squat), so that I can have the confidence and strength to attempt 90kg again?

If you are above 10% body fat then you should be doing cardio (includes running, swimming, cycling ect..) until you are less than 10% body fat. After you are less then 10%, that’s when you should be working out your muscles. Also be sure to eat breakfast, alot of snacks that are low in calories, and lots of water.
So just run first to lose the fat, eat healthy, and then you start working out to build muscle.
– Hope that helps
