Squat feelz
« on: October 17, 2018, 04:12:37 PM »
So, for whatever reason my squat day is usually Tuesday night.  Wednesdays I feel like a million bucks.  It's almost like I have a runners high all day.  Doesn't really happen as much the day after my bench or deadlift days.  My knees, which are usually really crappy even feel better the next day.  Anyone else feel the same?

I have trouble getting out of my car the day after squats.

I knew I was special.   ;D 

Maybe Josh isn't pushing me hard enough.  ::)  Just transitioning back from strongman stuff, so he's not killing me yet. 

This week was work up to 465 x 2
  speed squats 360 x3 x 3
  Pause squats 340 x2 x2
  GHD 8x3

My knees have been f'd up really bad.  To a point I couldn't get through warm ups, so this week was a real victory.  And my knees always feel better.  Not sure if I'm getting blood in there, the stretch, breaking up junkie stuff, or all of the above, but I felt amazing yesterday.  But, I've also been hitting the hot tub, then contrast shower after (haven't winterized my out door shower yet), so that helps.

That looks like 15 working reps? I would probably be fine the next day in that case.

Try it with the same weight and let me know.   8)
