Week 23/27 Squats

warm-up: none – running late, got right to it

Squats (Romaleos, SBDs)

135 x 5 (narrow stance, go ATG, no rest)
165 x 3 (narrow stance, ATG, took a brief bio break)
200 x 5 (changed to med stance, upped rest to 60 sec)
230 x 3 (added belt)
265 x 3
295 x 5

notes: The 295 AMRAP set, the bar was moving fine, but I was starting to lose core tightness and lean forward a bit, so stopped at rep 5.

330 x 1 (rest increased to 90 sec)
365 x 1 (trainer touched bar)

notes: Bar Speed slowed down a lot on the 365 set. I could have grinded it out, but my trainer touched the bar to help me, so I called it there and moved on to Deadlifts. She didn’t take it away from me or anything, but it was slowing down anyways, so F it.

Deadlift (barefoot)

160 x 5 (double overhand, no rest)
200 x 3
235 x 3
275 x 1 (rest kept low, under 30 sec)
315 x 1 (changed to crossgrip)
355 x 1 (beltless PR)
395 x 1 (belt went on, increased rest to 60 sec)
395 x 1
395 x 1
395 x 1
395 x 1

notes: since I had reset the weight, knew there would be no weight PRs or anything, so I decided to go for a beltless PR just to make myself feel better

post-workout: 20 min LISS on the elliptical
