Squattings With a Modest PR

9 November 2014

Squat 135x5, 225x3, 315x3, 385x2, 425x2, 455x2 (belt and wraps), 500x1, 520x1, 540x1

I feel like I should have tried 545 or even 550, since it went pretty well. But whatever. I'll try to upload some footage in a few days, camera was working (I think) but the connector cable might be messed up because neither my home nor work computer read the camera when I plug it in.

Deadlift 400 lbs. 10 singles with 90 seconds or less rest in between - this got somewhat hard toward the end, but I managed to beat the clock a few times (i.e. rest less than 90 seconds between singles) so success.

My gym got a new line of "freemotion" machines, so I tried the squat simulator for some extra quad work. The exercise is something like a hack/sissy squat hybrid, I did 3 sets of 10 with light weight and quads swelled up nicely.
