Thursday May 21st
100x5, 110x4, 120x3, 130x2
A bit shaky on the last set and almost lost the bar going into the second rep, but I was able to stabilize myself and get the reps.
Anderson Front Squat
190x5, 200x4, 210x3, 220x2
Treid a snatch grip for the first 2 sets. It made the squat seem easier but I wasn't comfortable with it so I switched back to my usual cross grip. Snatch grip is something I will have to work on, but not at these weights.
250x5, 260x4, 270x3, 280x2
I might have been a bit shallow on the last set. If I was it was only by about half an inch, I didn't realize this until after I had racked the bar.
Anderson 1/2 Squat
365x5, 385x4, 405x3, 425x2
Yeah, I went way off the reservation with this one. 365x5 might have been a bit high to start but I wanted to see how a tighter spacing of weights would affect this exercise. I had a hell of a time racking 405, the rack height I use is about half an inch too high (because of the hooks) and the next lowest pin is 2 inches too low and I can't lockout without hitting the bar into next pin. On 425 I didn't even bother trying to rack it, I set it on the pins and unloaded after my set.
Overall a very good squat session. I added 5lbs to every set on the first 3 squats, 70lbs on the first 2 sets of 1/2 squats and 40lbs on the last 2. Goddamn it felt good to get 400lbs on my back again.
