If this workout log looks strange, it is because I am back at the “sports science” training center where everything is weighed, measured and calibrated. Note that I don’t count 1 lb of collars bc I don’t count them at my gym. (So yea, when I squatted 500, it was really 501).
If it still looks strange, it is because my squat is strange. I had my buddy tape me doing high-bar squats the other day and when I reviewed the tape, I was dismayed to discover that they looked pretty much identical to my low-bar squats. Today, my old coach said the same thing. So I tried a lot of different squatting techniques in this workout, and I think I’m just going to go back to low-bar and try not to do good-mornings when the weights get heavy. Or do high-bar for my warm-up sets. Or do some high-bar extra at the end of my workout. Or try pause squats. So yeah, I’m still not sure what I’m going to do. But:
- I’m not going to get discouraged.
- I’m going to work like a madman on whatever I do.
- I’m going to squat big weights
- I’m going to destroy my competition.
