@LegoStormtroopr I would say that the inability to back squat properly is a diagnostic for pathology. If one can but chooses not to, that's okay, but avoiding it because of a fixable issue is problematic.

comment Panic when squatting
Are you new to deep squats? I've known people who were terrified of the bottom for the first few workouts.

comment Is 1 year a reasonable amount of time training for a challenging obstacle race?
Sorry...I can't tell what would be OK and what would help. What worked for me was yoga and doing exercises as close to deadlifts and pull-ups and dips as possible, extra slowly and with lots of video feedback, until I increased my strength and range of motion enough to do the real thing.

I would then say that physical therapy, surgeries, or abbreviated variations of those exercises that would lead to pull-ups and deadlifts would be ideal.

I can't comment on these races specifically, but the best thing I did for protecting my lower back has been heavy deadlifts and somewhat heavy Romanian deadlifts. For shoulders it's been dips and pull-ups. I consider these to be essential exercises for health.

comment What is a good metric for defining an ideal weight?
@PaulProgrammer Strength work includes weight lifting, chin-ups, dips, and so on. For people that are out of shape, cardio can be strength work too. It sounds like about a third of your workload is strength-oriented, so keep in mind that the scale might not budge if you're losing fat and gaining muscle.
