Read Chad’s Training Log Here

Start of a new training week…

Used my Compex today on the Warmup and Potentiation setting.

 

1-Box Jumps-4×3 at 38″

2-Squat

Bar xLots

135×10

225×5

315×3

405×2

495×1, add belt

585×1

675×1, loose wraps

765×2

Warmups didn’t feel great, but the 765×2 was easy. Probably good for 4-5 reps there. From the side angle I could see I wasn’t sitting back too well but that’s what I have these tree trunk quads for.

3-Squat

545x3x3, 90 seconds b/t sets

4-Deadlift

135×5

225×3

315×3

485×3

565×3

645×3

5-Dead Squats

515x6x1, 1 min b/t sets

Hadn’t done these in quite a long time, but they felt good. I might need to go 1 hole placing lower.

 

Skipped the GHRs and Abs today because I needed to film these Q&As and get out of there. Also I stopped before deadlifts to talk to another coach for 20 minutes or so and my blood sugar was getting low from the session being so long, despite my Chocolate Milk/Banana/Protein shake and Rice Krispie Treat peri-nutrition.
