Okay. This is a catch up post!
I was supposed to do 10 sets of 3 with 380, but that did not happen, I warmed up well, but i knew this wouldn’t be happening…lol. I went to my first set, i barely got up with the first rep of 380. So with that, i stopped the squats, knowing it wouldn’t do any good to continue, and i all i could get from that is another injury…
So i decided to do heavy walk outs, which i love to do, and i believe that they help me considerably. I set the j pegs to a point where it was about a half squat to stand up. then i walk out, slowly, then walk back. rerack the weight and repeat.
I did 405 for 2 ‘sets’, 495 for 1, then 595 (495+2 50lb dumbbells suspended by bands, to help balance.)for 2 sets. then tapered back down. not only do these help me keep stiff, but they accustom my body to heavier weights, making my heavy squats seem light, GREAT mind trick.
These were difficult, but not nearly as hard as the 10 sets of 3 would have been. I believe that i had not recovered fully from yesterday, partly bc of my finger. My finger is completely white now, i’m pretty sure that every single whiye blood cell that my body has is repairing my finger. so my body concentrated on the finger in stead of the legs. It is a logical idea to me. but despite that, i was just not prepared for today, hopefully every 10 sets of 3 day will not be like this.
I made it from a potentially bad workout, to a fairly productive one.

Probably a big factor as to why i ould not squat my best today… :’(
