Squats... feeling better

On Sunday the 17 Wing Strength Club hosted it's first ever Squat / Bench Press / Deadlift Clinic. A great time was had by all. We will be hosting another for sure.

Monday I headed to the gym before work to make another attempt at Squats. It was better.

Warm Up
Leg Swings and Stretching.
Squats - 65kg/6 reps, 65kg/6 reps, 105kg/3 reps, 105kg/3 reps, 145kg/1 rep, 145kg/1 rep.

Power Phase
Squats - 185kg/1 rep (no belt, no sleeves), 185kg/1 rep (with belt), 200kg/1 rep (belt and sleeves), 200kg/1 rep (belt and sleeves).

Pump Phase
Squats - 6 sets/3 reps/105kg

Core Work
Stability Ball Sit Ups - 2 sets/15 reps.

Again 185kg was golden, focusing on staying tight. 200kg were the two ugliest squats I have ever done. No control. More work required. I liked the sit ups but I need to do more.
