Training day 12-15-2013

Went to lift today with the sole purpose of really hammering some squat volume, and that is exactly what happened.

Today is the first day I attempted squatting with no sleeves, no light wraps and using a straight bar in a while because of the left knee issue. It has been feeling very good and as long as I am sensible about my weight progression back to where I want to be, all will be ok.

3ct pause squats
135 x 5
185 x 5
225 x 3
275 x 3
315 x 6 x 3
225 x 10

Light weight but since I haven’t lifted much from below parallel in quite a while, that part of the lift was slow. I kept the rest periods below 60 seconds on the working sets.

135 x 50

Seemed like a good idea at the time. Afterwards not so much.

Leg Extensions
115 x 3 x 15

65 x 3 x 10

Leg Curls
110 x 3 x 10
150 x 8; 90 x 12

Last set was a drop set.

180 x 4 x 15
