A Top 40 Weightlifting Blog

Monday, December 10, 2012


Motivation was hard to muster this morning. I wish I had a dollar for every time I said this but ended up having a stellar work out. Today was the same. STELLAR!!!

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

Power Phase
Squats (with belt) - 405lbs/2 reps, 405lbs/1 rep, 2 sets/1 rep/415lbs.
*4 minutes rest after each set*

Pump Phase
Squats (with belt) - 6 sets/5, 5, 5, 4, 6, 8 reps/415lbs (+black bands 260 to 370lbs).
*3 minutes rest after each set*

Outside the weather is cold and snowing. Inside the garage the wood stove is roaring and it's toasty warm. The training environment inside my gym is hardcore and I love it. Strength today was good and it shows with the numbers. 405lbs for a double is good.
