Back Squat 3-3-3-3-3 reps
Post loads to comments.
315-315-315-315 (X 2/3)…. way down from 5×5 @ 315 a few months ago.
65-75-85-95-95 (X 2/3)
First time ever doing back squats.
I’m still getting exertion headaches while working out. I’m going to the chiropractor every other day because my x-ray showed my c-3 vertebrae is rotated to the left. Good news is that the headaches aren’t lasting as long as they were last week.
Very nice adductor strain on the first 225, which is going to suck for awhile. Getting out of the truck was a real treat after work tonight.
Excellent coaching today, I need to maintain both lumbar and thoracic extension. Got to keep the upper back tight.
My form stink-uth…..
First time doing back squats…65-85-95-105-115 (2)
225, 185, 185, 185, 185, 185, 185
Form needs tweaking. I got the 225, but rolling onto my toes prevents my hips from getting below parallel. The reps at 185 all had good form. I need to do this once a week for a few weeks just to reinforce correct form.
225 (1/3), 185,185,185,185…..planned on working out in 240 range, boy was I wrong! Power WOD suck as third day workouts, inverted burpees and air squats apparently did more than I thought. 185 was a little light but I maintained good form. Rest day and looking forward to 7×1 deadlifts!
185, 215, 235, 245, 255
First time logging back squats – does that count as a PR?
165,185,195,205,215 (2 reps). my squat sucks.
315(2) 295(1), 295, 295, 295(2×1), 295
Had depth problems on at least one rep of every single set. Need to work on this.
Back Squat- 95, 105, 120, 120, 135, 135(x1), 135(x1)
First back squat in months, felt good but I did a few extra to practice form at the end.
I was hoping to get up closer to the 300# mark this time, but I’m still having trouble with depth, so I stayed around the 200-215 mark working on that the whole time.
