Re: B-squats

I can back and front squat close to my "normal" max weights B-squat style.

If you want to be more functional and athletic, add it in your repertoire. If you only want to increase your back squat,...

Re: Overdose of apples?

I'd say you need to eat more food in general and beef up a bit. Also, losing 10-15 pounds in two weeks for a guy as lightweight as you is a bit much IMO.
