A Top 40 Weightlifting Blog

Monday, May 14, 2012


Working nights this week so I'm into the SANCTUM in the mornings for some phenomenal work outs. Last week was kind of a drag. I was busy and didn't get a chance to deadlift or do shoulders. Today my squats didn't disappoint.

Warm Up
Foam Rolling.
Squats - 135lbs/10 reps, 225lbs/8 reps, 315lbs/4 reps.

Power Phase
Squats - 405lbs/1 rep (no belt, no wraps), 455lbs/1 rep (belt and wraps), 515lbs/1 rep (belt, wraps with knee sleeves), 3 sets/1 rep/415lbs (belt and knee sleeves, no wraps).
*didn't time rest between sets*

Pump Phase
Squats (raw) - 6 sets/5 reps/225lbs.
*2 to 3 minutes rest between sets*

I wore the knee sleeves to keep the wraps from coming undone. A trick I seem them do on the WSM. I don't think they added much if anything to the total lift. I'm really pleased with my strength gains thus far. I reviewed my blog last year this time I wasn't any where near the lbs I'm putting up now. Tomorrow is Bench Press. Let the fun begin.
