Squats and Deadlifts

20 December 2014

Squat 135x5, 225x3, 275x3, 315x3, 365x3, 405x3, 455x1 (belt and wraps), 495x3 (B+W)

Deadlift singles up to 450 x 1, 475 x 1, 450 x 1

Squats felt strong, so I went ahead with the planned progression on the last set. But then my back was tired for deadlifts and the three heavy-ish singles felt really hard. Next week I'll probably only do 455x3 on the last squat set because the deadlift schedule calls for a modest max-out (planning to do 525).

Hip thrust 5x5, 2 warmup sets and 3 working sets. These feel good after the squatting and pulling.

Chest-supported DB row 4s x 8-10

Bodyweight today (and last week) was around 215, which is the lowest it's been in a while.
