Bodyweight - 247
5 second pause squats -
Uhhhhhhhhhhh these are god damn brutal. Quad is slowly getting better. Might be back to full strength by the end of summer. Still a very slight amount of pain but nothing that is keeping me from having to think too much.
Lunges - 2x10
Notes - Pretty worn the fuck out after deads. Ate and drank too much last night, but still had a solid 80%er.
thats just sickReplyDelete
WTF!... BTW, that was cool! Gotta try it!ReplyDelete
Damn you are strong. Counting down for the ebook1ReplyDelete
Thats a serious Pause Squat... I think these have helped my Raw Squat more than anything I have ever done...ReplyDelete
Did you ever find a definite reason for your quad pain?
Torn rectus fimoris.Delete
Ouch. Will that heal on its own, or will you need surgery?Delete
It's healing. Just gotta baby it for a while.Delete
Are those lunges bodyweight lunges?ReplyDelete
Just curious, as I do pretty much the same thing (one set of twenty) to close my lifting sessions. I do 'em mainly to keep my hip flexors from tightening up too much.
Yeah just bodyweight stuff.Delete
Quick technique question, as I want to add these to my workouts:ReplyDelete
With the bottom position, is that parallel, as in what you would hit in a competition, or are you just pausing at the lowest point, lower than you would go in competition, but as low as you can go?
Just want to know if you're straining to maintain that bottom position of parallel, or that is your natural depth.
That is rock bottom, as low as I can go. I don't know any other way to squat.Delete
Thanks for the quick reply. I tried it like that (I'm super flexible, so was sitting with hammies on calves) a few days ago and am definitely suffering for it now: thanks for the tip.Delete
I just did these for the first time. I did 275x3x3 with a 3-Mississippi count. 275 is probably in the 55-60% of my max right now. These were absolutely brutal. Popped a lot of blood vessels around my eyes.ReplyDelete
