Squats Week 16

Mood: Pretty good.

Went in thinking I was going to cover some good ground. What actually happened was a whole other story.

Here’s the workout:

  • Back Squats 3 reps 135#
  • Back Squats 5×3 225#
  • Back Squats 5 reps 225#
  • Leg Press 5×8 275#

Results: Meh.

Warm-ups were no problem. Then I add on another plate.

That 225 was killer for some reason. I didn’t feel secure nor strong.

I knocked out as many sets as I could but dang I felt weak.

I decided to do some Pause Leg Presses and that felt good.

I think tonight was a fluke. I am going to try for 260# next week and see what happens.

Here are some other changes:

Front Squat – Maybe do these as a warm-up. 3×5 at 135#

Goblet Squat – I think my Back Squat form sucks. I am going to use some Goblet to correct that mess. 3×8 70#

Leg Press – If I do a pause at the top and extend my toes as far as I can, it feels really good. Next time, take it to 285# and keep my feet together to really emphasize my outer quads.

Supplements: C4 taken 30 minutes prior to working out.

Daily: Whey ProteinCreatine (for the one extra rep and swoleness) and Fish Oil (joints) everyday.

Food: 3,308cal 383c  101f  173p

If tonight was a fail, it wasn’t due to my diet. Carbs were on point.
