A Top 40 Weightlifting Blog

Back to some what normal training this week. It's the beginning of the week and it's time for some squats.

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

Power Phase
Squats (with belt only) - 6 sets/1 rep/425lbs.
*4 minutes rest after each set*

Pump Phase
Good Mornings - 6 sets/6 reps/225lbs.
*3 minutes rest after each set*

A really good work out. The power phase is doing what it's supposed to... get me used to the heavier weights. If I grind the weights it's always hard and slow coming up. If I drop into the hole then hit the switch it's quicker coming up. I know it only makes sense but when you've got near maximal weights on your back you don't always remember.
