Not in gear this time but just as intense. I took my time today and enjoyed the rest between sets. No timings to keep, just bending the bar.
Squats - 135lbs/8 reps.
Squats - 135lbs/8 reps, 225lbs/6 reps, 315lbs/4 reps.
Squats (with belt) - 4 sets/1 rep/415lbs, 2 sets/1 rep/420lbs.
Squats (with belt and chains) - 5 sets/4 reps/285+120lbs chain., 1 set/5 reps/285+120lbs chain.
*shorter rest than Power Phase*
These heavier work outs are feeling great. I am however noticing a few things like an achy left hip and my upper back feels tight. I guess I'm getting old (and stronger).
