Monday – SQWAAATS!

Hit squats, this morning.  Upon arriving, I received a cool gift from my training partner.  It’s a Harbinger HumanX chalk ball, which totally eliminates my need to carry around a container full of chalk.

After performing my usual squat warm-up, I went to work performing the following:

Exercise: weight x reps x sets

Low bar squats:

  • bar x 10 x 1,
  • 135 x 7 x 1
  • 185 x 4 x 1
  • 225 x 5 x 1
  • 275 x 3 x 1
  • 315 x 3 x 1
  • 365 x 1 x 1 @ 8.5 RPE

Note:  Squats are feeling a lot stronger!  If I can just hit above 400 at my next meet, I’ll be happy.  I hit 402 at my second meet, but bombed at 425 during my third meet last February.

Walk -outs:

  • 405 x 1 x 2

Note:  We loaded the bar up to 405 lbs. and walked it out of the squat rack.  After supporting the weight for about 3 seconds, we then re-racked it.  Doing this will enable our CNS to start adjusting to heavier loads.

Leg Extensions:

  • 60 x 12 x 1
  • 60 x 15 x 1
  • 45 x 12 x 2

Note:  Ended the workout with some leg extensions so that the bodybuilder in me would be happy.

Overall, great workout.  Getting stronger and feeling on track for my next meet!
