Last Work Out

Watching several great squat videos on Youtube over the last few days has motivated me to hit some squats tonight.

Warm Up
Light Stretching.
Squats - 2 sets/8 reps/135lbs, 225lbs/6 reps, 315lbs/4 reps.

Working Sets
Squats - 2 sets/1 rep/425lbs, 405lbs/2 reps, 3 sets/1 rep/405lbs.

I was really struggling with 425lbs. I dropped my weight just a bit and my speed returned. 405lbs for a double in just a belt is not too shabby. I really had no intrest in doing the Pump Phase so I decided to hit some lighter Bench Press.

Bench Press - 315lbs/4 reps, 3 sets/1 rep/315lbs narrow grip, 315lbs/3 reps.
OH Plate Extensions - 2 sets/10 reps/45lbs.

Really good work out. Now it's time to rest before Saturday. I hope my arm / elbow doesn't give me any grief this week end.
