A Top 40 Weightlifting Blog

My back has been feeling really good lately so today I decided to try some squats. Going into this work out I was very cautious and did the first few reps only half deep.

Warm Up - 10 minutes Arc Trainer
Squats - Bar/6 reps, 135lbs/6 reps, 225lbs/6 reps, 315lbs/2 reps, 315lbs/3 reps.
Sumo Kettlebell Deadlifts - 50lbs/6 reps, 50lbs/6 reps.

I could tell right away that I haven't worked glutes and hams in a while. Everything so far feels fine. The last 2 sets of squats I wore my belt high then where I normally wear it. I thought by wearing the belt high might feel better for my back. It didn't. Wearing my belt normally felt great and the third squat was very controlled. I'll see how I feel tomorrow.
