Did some belt squat good mornings working up to a heavy set of 10, like 5 plates per side or something i don’t know

These don’t require weight for me normally as i’m able to maximally contract and fire my glutes/hamstrings at once with body weight and really squeeze the life out of them

#166

It’s my personal belief the day after a squat day should always be a day off from work. Change my mind.


#167

I can’t, but your boss might be able to.


#168

My boss(es) are lifters. They understand, haha


#169

Not sure if you’ve mentioned this before, but where do you work?


#170

I haven’t I’m a system administrator for a 102 year old company.

The age isn’t to state anything about how well it’s run, other than to say it’s old as fuuuu


#171

If you work the next day, you get to brag about your workout right away.


#172

Lol, true enough

#179

Is that a common strategy for equipped lifters to use when deloading?


#180

Depends on the person and where they are in their training really. Conjugate at it’s base already has “Deloads” built in.

I’m 6 weeks out currently and just need a break from the gear before this final push next week to prep for the meet.
