I squatted today. Saturday was the last squat session of a three week microcycle in a 9 week mesocycle. It was hard. I was supposed to be deloading until Thursday or Saturday this week but couldn’t wait.
So I squatted.
Just to loosen up.
405 x6…with room to spare.
This was a HUGE rep PR for me. Though I am excited at this PR, I knew that it would happen. All of my training for the last 9 weeks has been geared toward hitting at least 405 x5. This just goes to show the importance of making a smart plan and sticking to it.
Work hard within your realistic abilities and reap the reward.
