Squats day 10

Even a stomach flu isn't enough to keep me from Squats.

Warm Up
Leg Swings and Stretching.
Squats - bar/12 reps, 135lbs/10 reps, 225lbs/6 reps, 315lbs/4 reps.

Power Phase
Squats (with belt only) - 4 sets/1 rep/405lbs, 2 sets/1 rep/415lbs.
*ample rest between sets*

Pump Phase
Squats (with belt and medium bands) - 3 sets/4 reps/315-375lbs, 3 sets/3 reps/315-375lbs.
*shorter rest between sets*

Support Work
Leg Extensions - 3 sets/20 reps/70lbs.
Lying Leg Curls - 3 sets/12, 14, 16 reps/70lbs.

Took my time with today's work out. With a stomach flu I didn't want any accidents. Even though energy levels were a bit low I still managed to have a good work out and the strength is most certainly increasing. Tomorrow it's Christmas Eve and Bench Press.
