Great vids. Super box squat.
Yeah, I learned that doing those suspended GM's. Every set I added another 20 lbs thinking I'd FINALLY fail lol. I jumped up a lot in weight for the 455 thinking I'd punish myself and, yet again, repped it.
Personally, I think it's proof positive that most people, especially myself, just don't work hard enough. I mean, with my box squats, the 365 was tough, and I strained through my two reps, but I obviously had a lot left. Oftentimes you become "satisfied" and complacent with yourself when you shouldn't be.
So last night, I spent the majority of my night shift planning out my next full mesocycle for lower and upper body maximal effort work. For lower, I'm planning on using something like this:
Edit: Prolly a bad idea posting lol.
Gonna keep my SSB squats, and add in some cambered bar GM's. Assistance work should be heavy reverse hypers and gluteham's. Whatever the hell I feel like. This way I can start really keeping consistancy and beating records vs. trying too many new exercises to EST. records. My goal is to know where I'm at, so I don't need to do such a long and careful workup to something heavy. For example, if I was to do suspended GM's again, I know I can make bigger jumps and know exactly where I need to be and end with (460 lbs).
