This time last month I lifted 370x6 so, no rocket science needed, today I wanted 380x6. I got to six and knew I had at least one more in me and put that extra cherry on top: 380 x 7.
Week 3 squats for 5 cycles thus far have been:
cycle 1: 345x4
cycle 2: 355x5
cycle 3: 365x6
cycle 4: 370x6
cycle 5: 380x7
My weight, depth, and reps have all improved. Awesome. This marks the end of Cycle 5, as well. Almost half way done with the year! I'm also really looking forward to this deload week; I'm a little under the weather and need the rest.
Goals for today:
Assistance work: 5 sets of front squats at 225 for triples. My back was toasted after the back squats.
