Echoing the others with the crazy high reps on you + sets! At this rate it'll be years on 531 before you top out  :o

You are just beasting out those plus sets!!  You are a strong guy and have a ton of room in that program. 
Hey…I hate squat too!!! >:(
Man you are killing those plus sets on all of your recent workouts!  Nice work.


Thanks everyone. I'm hoping cause I started a little lighter that I can progress a little farther than if I had started right at my 90%. I know that the reps will drop off but I think with the higher reps it will help me in the long run.

Oh and tomorrow is squats :(

swuat day today!!! WOOOHOOO.




5/3/1 cycle 2 week 1

squats

105x5
120x5
140x3
150x5
165x5
185x15 (5+)
95x10x5

Nordic falls

5x5

First time using knee sleeves and I was excited to try them out. They felt pretty good. My calves are smaller than my knees  :( so they go on pretty easy. I went with tight with my measurement but I probably could have gone one more size down. Knee held out for me without any pain or disturbing twinges so that's good. I have a vid of the 15 but I have to post it later. Kind of in a rush now.

Killer 15 reps at 185! That's a tough set. Glad you like the knee sleeves,
I don't squat without mine, I even throw them on 20min in advance to get the knees toasty!

Great 5+ set!
At least with all these high rep + sets you're getting your cardio in  ;D

Cardio is right. Thanks everyone.

I was going to load a vid of the set but my internet connection here sucks ass and would have taken over an hour to load so I'll do it tomorrow at work. I don't know if I mentioned that I'm running the same weights for squats as the last cycle. Don't want to push to hard on the knee till I know for sure.

great job on the squats!!  185x15!!nice! :thumbsup:

What sleeve did you get again?  SBD?  that's what I wear and absolutely love them,  I got the correct size for me (normal fit)  and they are a bitch to pull off my calves, espeacially after my workout when my calves swell.  I usually have to have my partner pull them off.

So here is the 185x15 squats.  I'd appreciate any critiques as well



Today was a good day. Felt good.

OHP

65x5
70x5
80x3
90x3
100x3
110x16 (3+)

Felt good when I got to the 3+ and wanted to try for 16 again this week. Was pretty pumped when I got it. Deads are on Saturday. We'll see if I can hit 20 again(or more :o)

Your squats look great to me. You have excellent depth for a fairly wide stance. Youve got some good hip and hamstring mobility to hit that depth with that stance. Great job

Thanks guys. Tool is awsome. That's my go to song for amrap squats. It just gets me pumped.
Your squats look great to me. You have excellent depth for a fairly wide stance. Youve got some good hip and hamstring mobility to hit that depth with that stance. Great job

I think I've always gone as low as possible on squats. It never felt comfortable doing half squats. I can never understand how people do half squats. Maybe with light weight but with heavy iron on your shoulders to me it is very difficult to stop and change directions. Not sure if that makes sense but that's how it feels to me. You can't see it in the vid but my butt does come around ever so slightly at the bottom of the rep. I don't think it rounds per se but straightens out. I don't think it's a problem but I am still working on it

Great depth on that squat. One thing though. I may be seeing it wrong but it appears that you are tilting your head down forward when you descend and this may be causing your back to round. I can't really tell and it just may be me. Any particular reason for the high rep squats?
