Thursday Oct 16th/2008 - Lower 2


ME Parallel Box Squat
-bar x 5
-135lbs x 5
-185lbs x 3
-205lbs x 2
-225lbs x 1
-255lbs x 1
-275lbs x 1
-295lbs x 1 (10lb PR)
-300lbs x 1 (15lb PR!)

Very solid day! Everything just felt right. I wasn't sure if I'd hit 295 but when I did it felt so damn good. So I went right up to 300 to finally break into that 300 terrirtory. I think these are going to help my A2G free squats out alot once I come back.

Power Cleans
bar x 5
40kg x 5
50kg 8 x 2

Switched the cleans back to a more conventional speed work style rep scheme. I think this will be much more beneficial then what I was doing. I was really focusing on the pop off the floor.

Planks
front plank - 1:15
side plank - 1:00 min each
front plank - 1:30
side plank - 1:00 min each

My core was absolutely destroyed after box squats today. Planks were very tough.

Thougths

Holy squats batman. I really didn't think I'd be able to move that much weight but I'm damn glad I did!

I think my workout partner and I are going to switch to a true 3-day west side program soon. We're both feeling the strains of lifting heavy 4x per week.
