Training Log: Entry 2269


SSB Squat
2x425+chains (Post op/Lifetime PR)

Notes: I think my new approach to this is gonna work out well.  Going ME for these essentially, with a backoff set.  There was some comfort in not worrying about rep PRs and just seeing how hard I could strain.  The 425 was heavy and I folded over a bunch, but I managed it.  It's technically a lifetime PR, because I've never used that much weight with 3 sets of chains before.  Definitely a post-op PR.  Knee/shin splint held out well.  This movement isn't as intense as a straight barbell squat. Back-off set was tough; think I gave the ME set my all and didn't have much left in the tank.  Might try a few back offs to build up volume in the future.  Just strip 45s as I go, or something like that.

Reverse hypers 330

Standing ab wheel

Notes: Both done in between sets of squats.

Buffalo bar squats

Notes: Slight audible called due to having to skip last week's session.  Whenever I skip a week and then come back, my hamstrings tend to get so sore that I can't function for a week, which just retards my progress.  Thinking that getting in an early/intense workout might prevent that.

General notes: Woke up at 195.8.  Been seeing some big spikes, but this tends to happen after rice.  I'll see if I end up losing a lot of it. If not, the extra weight this close to a contest is kinda nice.  I'm feeling a little more stable.
