Squat Training - The Five-Week Cycle

30 January 2012

Second week of the 5-week cycle - the four sets of five after hitting a weekly max still suck, and they will only get heavier.

Back squat:

Warmup x a bunch of sets
340 lbs. x 1 (B+W)
385 lbs. x 1 (B+W)
410 lbs. x 1 (B+W) - the singles still feel fast and explosive, which is good. Shouldn't be any grinders at this point.
330 lbs. x 5 x 4 sets (sheer murder on the legs)

Paused squats to pins 310 lbs. x 3 reps (couldn't do the required five)

Glute-ham raise 3 sets x 5-8 reps - getting pretty good at these

Calf raise x 1 set, fairly high reps

Leg extension x 1 set
