Just sharing with the 35+ group to get us all fired up. I’m 41 and been doing Wendler 5/3/1 for a few years now, but started throwing in 20-rep squats to change things up a bit. Started with body weight squats for 20 reps ( I wasn’t used to high reps), added on the bar, went to 135lbs a week later, and then just started adding on weight. I got as high as 255 x 20, and then this week had 225 lbs on my back and just went for broke.
I realize doing 225 x 30 is questionable…it won’t be a regular staple in my training journal, it just sort of happened.
The set was probably almost 4 minutes long. It was free weights, good form, no spot. I’ll try to film a video this week using my iPad and post it on this forum. I’m 6’1", 215lbs.
Again, just trying to get you guys fired up!
