so you all know, i’m a 200 lb DB that loves to work out. i don’t do shows or compete i do it because 10 yrs ago i came down with Crohn’s and it forever changed my life. I push myself as hard as I can in the gym because one day my Crohns will come back and I need the mental and physical prop to kick its ass! I will not go down to a 125 emaciated carcass again!
So I use my gym as my temple to challenge my mind and body. My body once gave me the middle finger when i was sick, now i use my mind to get back at my body. this brings me to Squats. I love them.
I did Smolov and i want to share with you that if i can find the forum. but today i decide to try the 20 rep squat. This is awesome and everyone needs to try it! what you do is take what you can Squat 10 times, and double it. So today I took 315 and went to work! Everything was going great until I got to 15…then my world started to go black…literally! I couldn’t get enough oxygen between reps. I got to 18, went down sucking wind like i just sprinted 100 yards…i was pushing so hard to get back up from my deep squats and the world went BLACK! I freaking passed out half way up!
What makes it even better is I had a crowd watching me try this. When I came to face first on the floor with the bar above my head, i freaking hit it with the old noggin! HA Ha. Dumb ass. Everyone was laughing because it was funny, but man did that suck! I cant wait to try it again. I hope there is someone else out their that has tried this and I can hear from you too! Now lets go Squat!
