Week 52: 5/3/1 Cycle 2, Week 3, Day 3 - Squats
85kg: 3 - belt on
160kg: 1 - belt on, mixed grip
Perfect day today. This will be my last heavy lower body session before testing my maxes, so I wanted to hit some heavy singles but definitely avoid failure. The 120kg squat was tough but certain, as were the 180kg deadlifts.
Up until today I have been training in flat-soled casual shoes that really weren't designed for activity, so I bought some wrestling shoes and tried them out today. Felt very good.
Tomorrow I'm going to do the 5/3/1 presses and some heavy benching, I'll do active recovery on Wed (probably some light squat/bench/deadlift) complete rest on Thurs and test maxes on Fri. Right now I'm thinking of going for 125kg-122.5kg-205kg as I'd much rather get small PRs all round than ambitious fails. But we'll see.
