Squat Training
Mesocycle 18 - Week 4

Beginning Thoughts:
This is last night's workout. I had an exam today on "Religions in the US"...I am glad I took this elective. Very informative and it's damn interesting to learn about how the United States came about to being. I remember studying a very brief version of this in like 5th grade. Now I learning about it in-depth and I think it's one of my two favorite courses this semester.
Workout:
Front Squats:
275 lbs x 1 rep @ 97.5%
245 lbs x 3 reps x 5 sets @ 87.5%
275 lbs x 1 rep @ 97.5%
Decent. I did an extra set at the end with 275 for myself.

Metabolic Conditioning for 1 round:
Kettlebell Swings = 65 lbs x 15 reps
Renegade Rows = 45 lbs x 7 reps
Unilateral RDLs = 65 lbs x 12 reps
Dumbbell Windmills = 30 lbs x 10 reps
This is a kinda low volume week so only one round. I tried Kettlebell Swings for the first time and I don't think I did them right. I should've used a lighter weight but I do think that some of the reps were clean - just not most.

Grip Training:
Regular Walmart Gripper for few sets and reps as a warm-up
Heavy Grips 150 lbs x 6 reps x 2 sets
CoC #1 x 2 reps
Heavy Grips 150 lbs x 5 reps x 2 sets
Videos:
Front Squats & Metabolic Conditioning:

My boy Paul Roa hit a bench press of 305x1 and 320x1:
Overall Impression:
My friend Paul Roa hit some awesome numbers on his bench yesterday. He's hovering around 220-225 lbs and he managed to nail a 305 and 320 bench!

I hope everyone has had a good weekend. I went and saw Valentine's Day. It was good....similar to He's Just Not That Into You. I liked it. Decent chick flick.

I saw the trailer for Brooklyn's Finest. Man...I'm pumped. I've always wanted to be a cop. If I make a billion dollars before I'm 30, I'm gonna go to police academy. It's a very honorable job inspite of all the shit it gets, IMO.

Anyway, I hope y'all are having a fun Monday. Have a good week ahead guys and gals!

dan john has written some great stuff on swings...and robertson just had a blog post about it last week i think. the two things i got out of them are: attack the zipper on the downswing...aggressively shove that thing behind you. and really snap the hips on the way through. i think swings are fun as shit...really hit the pc.
