450lbs Front Squat @ 157
Did some front squats on Saturday. Yesterday got in some benching and finally for the first time in 5 weeks, was able to do some motherfucking bounding outside. Fucking snow.
Sat: front squat- bar x 10,10
Cut it a little high, but it wasn’t even all that hard to be honest. I’m pretty happy with it. The hip also withstood 3 heavy singles on Saturday, which is good.
Based on my approximations, my front squat usually hangs out around 85% of my back squat. So in theory if I can front squat 467lbs, then once I start training my back squat again I should be good for 550 after some practice. Thus, my new goal is to work the front squat up to 475lbs before switching back. This is over triple bodyweight and should also mean I’ll be strong enough to back squat 550. We’ll see!
Sun: 2-legged bounding- I did 5 jumps at a time in series of 3, escalating the intensity each time. I did 8 total series which means I did 120 total jumps haha. I got carried away. I hadn’t jumped in weeks. Today I’m obviously pretty sore, but oh well. Only like 5 of the sets were done “all out.”
The best I managed was only 48’3". My personal best is 50’. So it looks like I’ve got some work to do.
Bench- 225x3, 235x3, 245x3, 255x2, 265x1
Face pull- 80 total reps
Dips- 90x10, 110x8, 125x6, 140x5, 160x2
