hey guys, i have not posted in my log lately because there has been NOTYHING interesting about my workouts. but yesterday was interesting.
over the last month or so, i have been trying to rehab my low back, by trying to do 100 reps of abds and back raises every training day. i started out with 3-5 sets of 20, then 4x25, and recently (the last week or so i have been doing 3x33)
so i decided to try to box squat heavy.
no if you have been looking at my logs, i have been going RAW on the box squat, and my usual drop out set was about 365-405 for a few reps.
this is how yesterday went.
- bar x 25
-bar x 25
BELT AND KNEE SLEEVES:
LOOSE SINGLE PLY INZER POLY BRIEFS(POWER PANTS) ADDED
-485x2(added 5 lbs collars on the here on out)
PUT DENIM BRIEFS ON TOP OF THE POLYS
-515x1(took REAL small jumps here on out as i was terrified of getting injured)
ok, i stopped here, i would like to say like EVERYBODY ELSE that i had more in me, but i did not. it came up fast, but i felt bad things in my right knee and groin, my low back and my left outer thigh)
whats the point? i think we all need to reevaluate and take a look inward to how strong we THINK we are, when we use gear. so i can talk like i am a big man saying i squatted 550, but in reality when i see a guy reping 315 in an ATG raw squat(which is about all i can do) i have to be real with myself and say that i am not really stronger than that guy.
