    DeadLift.
    ----------
    I kept my back straight + bent at the waste. My feet were a bit more than shoulder width apart. I bent at the waste and also squatted down a bit.

    Thanks


    EDIT:

    oh yeah, also, i thought squats worked your quads + butt, but I am really really sore n ow in my, well, its not quite my groin muscles, but kind of farther back towards my hamstrings (but not my hamstrings as far as I can tell). is t his normal.

    I was just fucking around last week at the end of my workout and put up a 405 with no belt or anything, if it wasnt for the pulled muscle in my stomach it would have been a lot more

    There are decent explanations on
    http:://www.cyberpump.com

    Best of all though: "Insider's Tell-All Handbook on Weight-Training" by Stuart McRobert. Several page explanation of do's and don'ts with photos of both DL's and Squats. A great book with explanations of all major exercises.
