Worked up to 315x3 today. It was my second squat session today, offseason football required that I squat during that workout. This is after school at the d1 gym that I attend. The most weight I have ever done on squats is 315x5. During offseason I did 135x5 and 225x5. I would have done more but te coaches don’t give us enough time to warm up with weights so I had to jump in cold turkey. Anyways after school I started my 3x3 workout, after I warmed up, with 265, then did 295, then 315. The video is of my set with 315. On the third rep I nearly fell backwards which is unusual. Since I lift raw usually my hips shoot up and my chest caves.
So here is the question, why did that happen? Was it exhaustion? Weak body part or form/ not being tight enough? One of the smarter coaches I talked to said my core probably wasn’t strong enough, yet I was strong enough to finish the rep?
Any input on this is appreciated greatly. Thank y’all in advance for the help.
On a side note I turned 17 back in November, I know good is relative and my numbers are obvious smaller than the others here, but is that a good number to have? I’ve also never done a true 1 rep max on squats.
