Saturday 27 Dec 2008

A great squat work out if I do say so. The core work was obviously missing from my routines and I badly needed it. Here's today's struggles.

Warm Up - Walk 2 laps (in door 125m track), Jog 6 laps (5.5 minutes), Walk 1 lap, Jog 2 laps, Walk 1 lap, Jog 2 laps.
Core Work - 50 sec elbow plank, 20 reps half sit ups.

Squats - 135lbs/6 reps, 225lbs/6 reps, 315lbs/4 reps (belt), 405lbs/2 reps (belt & knee wraps), 455lbs/1 rep (belt & knee wraps)
Bench Squats - 3 sets/8 reps/315lbs.

Squats for 315lbs could have been 6 reps but I held short for the heavier stuff. 405lbs for 2 reps should have been 3 reps but my knee wraps hurt. I know, "MUFFIN". I haven't been in knee wraps for over a year and they do take some getting used to. The wraps felt much better for the 455lbs which if I had to be over critical was a bit high. Still a great effort. The bench squats at the end really finished me off. I had to hold myself up after the last set because I was going to fall down. Tomorrow some bench work
