A Top 40 Weightlifting Blog

Monday, April 22, 2013


Slow day at work today and I had enough insight to bring my lifting gear. Squats today felt great. I'm not sure if it was because my training has lead me to this point or if I am extremely motivated after spotting and plate loading at the CPF meet in Amherst this last week end. Either way I am pleased with today's squats.

Warm Up
Squat - 135lbs/8 reps.
Squat - 135lbs/8 reps, 225lbs/6 reps, 315lbs/3 reps.

Power Phase
Squat (with belt only) - 3 sets/1 rep/405lbs, 1 set/1 rep/425lbs, 3 sets/1 rep/405lbs.
*aprox 5 minutes rest after each set*

Pump Phase
Squat (with belt and light bands) - 4 sets/3 reps/405lbs - light bands (305-365lbs), 2 sets/4 reps/405lbs - light bands (305-365lbs).
*aprox 3 minutes rest after each set*

Good speed during the Power Phase singles and great depth on all reps in both phases. A really positive work out which will lead me to a 500lbs Classic Squat by the Eastern Canadians on November.
