Some Squatting

26 May 2013

I decided to do the volume paused squats today and leave the leg presses and Romanian deadlifts for another session. Also worked a bit on bottoms-up squats and partial squats with top hold. I feel like the absence of heavy squatting lately has deconditioned my back to heavy weights and now I feel wobbly even when unracking mediocre weights which I used to squat with ease. So some midsection strengthening is in order.

Warmup leg ext. 1 x 10, abductor/adductor machine 1 x 20 each

Paused back squat 300 lbs. x 3s x 5

Bottom position squat 225x3, 245x3, 275x1

Bottom position half-squat with 10-second hold at top (no belt) - worked up to 475x1, then missed 505 twice. Need to work on these more - 505 isn't even 100% of my 1RM.

Ab wheel rollouts 3 sets x 10

Leg extensions 2s x 10
