Training Log: Entry 2269
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.
