Legs and back.

warmup: stretched out my low back, light weight squats

Low Bar Squats (approx. 2 min rests, Romaleos, knee sleeves, no belt)

135 x 5
185 x 3
225 x 2
275 x 5
275 x 5
275 x 5
275 x 6 @RPE7

After this, I was going to do SSB squats, but my knee was a little sore. I went to do leg extensions, but the machine was broken. Since I didn’t get my full deadlift day last week, I threw in some of that as assistance instead as a new plan.

5″ Block Pulls (street shoes, long rests)

320 x 8
320 x 8
320 x 8

notes: this roughly approximates a 14 inch deadlift in a strongman comp. I wasn’t happy using street shoes, but I didn’t want to go barefoot, I had no socks, and had not planned on pulls today.

Leg Press (medium rests, knee sleeves)

15 plates x 8 @ RPE9
13p x 10 @ RPE8
13p x 10 @ RPE8
13p x 10 @ RPE9
13p x 10 @ RPE9
13p x 10 @ RPE9

notes: I tried 15 plates but it was too much, I think my reps were crap. So I dialed it down by about 90 pounds and was able to get good reps in consistently. My knee was fine with it.
