1/31/19- Squats & Events
SSB Box Squats- (Deep Box Squats are HELL)
Bar x10
155lbs/70kg x5
205lbs/93kg x5
245lbs/111kg x10x5 (1min Rest)
Surprisingly didn’t die, underestimated my work capacity coming into this. Felt good, every rep had that explosive pop to it as well.

  • Sandbag/Sled Medley- x2 Rounds
    Sandbag Carry- 160lbs/72kg x50ft/15m
    Shuttle x100ft
    Sandbag Carry- 160lbs/72kg x50ft/15m
    Sled Drag- 460lbs/208kg worth of plates x50ft/15m
    Conditioning still isn’t bad. Athleticism feels really good, felt agile and fast. Shuttle felt awesome, although my ass is already sore from the sprinting.

  • Heavy Sled Pulls- 390lbs/176kg x3x50ft/15m SS W/Reverse Hypers x3x15

Overall Felt really good. Glad to see I’m not an uncoordinated fat bastard lol. Glute Pump is real and terrible.

The program should end with a 505 pull which I’m very excited for.

When does the program end? That’s pretty awesome.

Dude…how much did you pay? If he can pack 100 pounds on your deadlift, that’s pretty awesome

Roughly $70-$80 dollars. Luckily I got to push my deadlift to about 440 before I got him as a coach for deadlifts. I wish he could slap 100lbs on my deadlift lol. This is a way different way than I’ve ever trained in my life for deadlifts so it might push me above a 505 (Hopefully)
