    Front squat - maybe 9? never actually passed out, but I've gotten dizzy
    Jerks - 6-7

    I've held almost 200% of my max front squat for 10 seconds. For me, it's a worthless exercise.

    Why not do a bunch of single leg stuff? Getting strong on one leg will translate to the bigger lifts, and help prevent future injuries. Just a thought.

    They are the same. Buy the cheapest one, which will likely be monohydrate.

    Adding in reverse hypers would be beneficial for sure. I've seen them done with two styles, lots of swinging, or with pauses at the top. Both are good. I wish my gym had one.

    Likely over thinking it, I'd wager you're fine to train. Always remember to take a pre-squat dump. Always.

    I'd recommend an angled one, since it can give you two palm positions to press from for each handle (slightly pronated and slightly supinated). More variety; more better.

    Sorry, I should have been more clear. You shouldn't be losing tension at any point through the lift or between reps. If you are, you're doing something wrong. For example, I had press today (3+ week)...

    You shouldn't be losing tension at any point throughout the lift. The way I lift, I always maintain tension and have full range.
