Squats – Week 18

Mood: Expecting.

All thanks to this:


I’ve waited nearly a month for this mostly due to me being lazy and not actually measuring around where I will be wearing the belt. (Hint: don’t go by your waist size.) I exchanged a XL for a 3XL. and I am glad I did: first time trying it on and I got it two holes in.  Wasn’t freakishly tight but tight enough.

When you can feel your abs wanting to push against something, that is the time, I think, you should get a belt.

Here’s the workout:

  • Goblet DB Squats 3x30s 50#
  • Low Back Squat 45#x10
  • Low Back Squat 135#x5
  • Low Back Squat 205#x3
  • High Back Squat 250# 3×3
  • High Back Squat 250# 3×5
  • Front Plate Raise 45# 5×15
  • One-Arm Landmine Press 90#x10 reps; 115# 4×6



Armed with that belt, I was pumping out 250s like nothing. It felt so great to press out my abs against something solid. I was able to come out of the hole with no problems.

(I was prepared to do some Anderson Squats if I had any problems out of the hole. Since I didn’t, I didn’t.)

I am pleased with moving my Shoulder accessory work to Squats day. Very pleased.

Supplements: C4 taken 30 minutes prior to working out.

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

I am trying to get in the habit of getting some carbs in post-workout. I figured a pb&j on wheat with a glass of milk would do the trick. Earlier today, I was reading up on post-workout carbs and apparently, I want a carb/protein that digests fast. Something with the mixture of dextrose and whey protein. I am going to work on a cocktail and report back to you.
