Last Heavy Squat Session
This morning I got a great training session in at Victory Baptist Church. I have had the pleasure to train with a great group of guys, all with the common goal of getting stronger and becoming better people.
This is also the last heavy squat session I am completing before my meet on August 2nd.
Squat: 45/10/10, 135/10, 225/5, 315/5, 405/3, 455/1, 495/1, 525/1
This the same number I hit last week. I want to make sure I feel comfortable with the weight. I also want to make sure I get a good lift in. I will take my opener next weekend. I am still looking to open at 505lbs. Then to take 530lbs. for my second. I will see how I feel
Heavy Bench Session
Tonight was my last heavy bench session before my meet in two weeks. It was a late training session, but my best one since I started training for my WNPF meet.
Bench: 45/15/15, 135/10, 185/5, 225/5, 275/5, 315/3, 345/2, 365/3 with a double choked micro mini band
Pull-Ups with Orange Band: 6/6/4, 2/2 bodyweight
EZ Curls: 45lb. plate on each side 8/8/8
Red Mini Band Tricep Pushdowns: 20/20/20/20
Squats with Bands
I have not used bands within a squat session in a long time. To be honest, without looking at my training log, I couldn't tell you. I usually get my training sessions in late at night after my son goes down, but today I was able to get my session in at around 4pm.
Squat: 45/10/10, 135/10, 225/5, 315/5, 365/3, 365/3/3 with strong band, 415/1 with strong band
Deadlift: 135/5, 225/5, 315/5, 365/3, 415/3, 445/1
Sled Pulls: 155lbs. 5 laps around the backyard in 8 minutes
