A Top 40 Weightlifting Blog

Monday, February 06, 2012


Last week 440lbs for a double was manageable so today I wanted to see how much I had in the tank. My previous best squat in knee wraps was 475lbs but I will admit it was a bit high. Today I did it, no problem.

Warm Ups
Squats - 2 sets/6 reps/135lbs, 225lbs/6 reps, 315lbs/3 reps.

Power Phase
Squats with knee wraps - 405lbs/2 reps, 455lbs/1 rep, 475lbs/1 rep.

Pump Phase
Squats raw - 3 sets/3 reps/315lbs, 3 sets/2 reps/315lbs.

Core Work
Stability Ball Sit Ups - 3 sets/25 reps/+10lbs.

I'll be posting a video once it's processed. 475lbs actually felt like I could have gone 495lbs. Sweet! I was going to to 4 sets of sit ups but my hip flexers felt very uncomfortable and tight. Next time.

Saw the video. You definitely had more than 475 in you. Nicely done!
