|10 reps? Please kill me.|
For assistance work I tried paused squats for the first time. I'm hoping these will help me be more explosive out of the hole and more comfortable going to depth with heavier weight. I did 315x1, 365x1, 405x1x3, and 315x5 (this last set made me want to pass out). The ones at 405 were paused, but not for very long, even though I could have sworn I was down there for what felt like an eternity. I then ended the workout with some front squats. I did a pyramid with 135x1, 225x1, 275x1, 315x1, 225x2x5 (paused at the bottom on the 225's). This 315 was probably my best heavy front squat in terms of having the bar not falling forward so much on the descent.
