Thursday August 6 Squat
Morning BW: 155 (30 7/16)
RDL (GL style)
20 minutes of KB swing/burpee supersets: 45lbx15/BWx8 with 15 s rest or so. This was fun (and hard).
Notes: Good day. Squats are starting to feel a bit better as well. So I think I’m going to continue leaving one rep in the tank for my 5th set, in order to ensure that my technique stays reasonable and it gets ingrained. But I was reading Pwnisher’s log and his thoughts about ‘straining’, as well as some other posts. That made me think that my pause squats should be pretty hard as well, and that I should ‘strain’ on these as much as I can, since they are with a lighter load and not really the same movement as a non paused squat. So I’m gonna do that for the next 3 months.
Maybe by that time I’ll look back at this and cringe at my thought process, but let’s see where it goes. Also, I’ve decided to just use a BBB template for my assistance: 5x10 squat on DL days, 5x10 RDL on squat days, 5x10 CGBP on Bench (2) days. 3 months. Just 50% or so.
