After reading hours and hours of mr @T3hPwnisher blog, i bought and read “super squats”. Its a great read. It just happened to fall on leg day. Decided id incorporate a widowmaker squat on my leg day. Did seated Leg curl 3 sets, adductor 2 sets, then a few walking lunges to get the knees warm. I had no idea on my 10-12rm squat, as i havent barbell back squatted in a year due to left knee pains. well warmed up doing sets of 10, 95, 135, 185, then went for 225.
I definitely did not take the time to get mentally ready for this set. Took it for granted. I ended up at 16 reps. It wasnt my legs that mentally broke me, it was the lower back fatigue and lungs on fire.
Hamstrings are sore this morning as are my glutes. tomorrow Im sure will be worse. Just like the book says, i have those 4 reps in me, i just wimped out. It has made me ready to go train legs again, a guess a new flame, a new goal. I will be squatting every 72 hours, so not 3x week frequency, but a tad more than 2x a week. Simple upper/lower/off repeat. Upper will be minimal, 2-3 sets of Bench/OHP, Bent row, pullups.
