A Top 40 Weightlifting Blog

After a full week of rest I feel like crap. I always feel better when I'm lifting and a rest break always is painfull. First my ankles then my back and hips. Tomorrow morning I'll feel great because of the squats tonight.

Warm Up
Squats - 135lbs/8 reps, 225lbs/6 reps, 315lbs/4 reps, 405lbs/1 rep.

Power Phase
Squats (belt and knee sleeves) - 4 sets/1 rep/465lbs.
*4 to 5 minutes rest between sets*

Pump Phase
Squats (no belt, no knee sleeves) - 4 sets/3 reps/315lbs, 2 sets/4 reps/315lbs.
*1 to 2 minutes rest between set*

465lbs felt heavier this week. I had a really bad sticking point. Speed was good and I maintained a decent upright position. After the next bunch of weeks precompetition training I should smoke it at the Eastern Canadians in November.
