Tuesday Dec 16th/2008

Weight: 188.0lb (no sweat pants this time so that might have a part in the drop)

DE Box Squat
-bar x 5
-95lb x 4
-115lb x 3
-135lb x 2
-145lb 8x2
-185lb x 2
-225lb x 1
-255lb x 1
-275lb x 1
-295lb x 1
-315lb x 1 (15lb PR!!)

I have been away from the good old back squats for at least a month now and I was feeling like I was on fire after dynamic work so we decided to work up a bit. It just felt so damn good I kept on going and my "spidey senses" were right to tell me so. Huge PR. Lovin it. Oh yeah, it was a box that was probably ~1" above parallel. 3 plates baby! Oh yeah.

Straight Leg Good-Mornings
bar x 10
65lb x 10
85lb x 10
95lb 3x10

My hamstrings are a blazin' right now. lol


Tic-Tocs (sort of)
3xAMAP

Like this except I had bent knees:

My goal is to eventually work up to what the guy in the vid is doing. Very hard.

Thougths

Going to work on a program for my gf now. I might hit you guys up for some input later. Cya!

Good work on the squat man. Do you think the front squats made the difference?

Front squats definately helped in the scheme of things. One thing I've learned pretty recently is if you want to get good at a lift then the best way to do that is not to just hammer away at that particular lift. Do some variations. This brings up potential weak areas that you may have and makes you a stronger lifter on the whole. Also, sometimes a break away from that lift is good for your body and your head!

As for front squats particularily: they are a b!tch to get used to but I enjoy them now and definately feel I've benefited from them. My next max squat/dl day variation is going to be front anderson squats. You squat the bar down onto the safeties and completely let the weight off your body before you drive it up again. I think this will really help the out of the hole power.

Thanks for stoppin in!
