Squats: Back to Basics

Wed, 29 Jun 16

Squats: 45x10, 135x2x5, 225x2x5, 275x5...
Walkouts/Static holds: 315x2x15 (sec), 405x3x5 (sec), 465x2x5 (sec), 495x3x5 (sec)...
Squats: 295x5x4, 295x1x4

Changed up the order a bit - warmed up and did walkouts up to 465.  465 and 495 were static holds.  Then moved on to the work set of squats.  This definitely made it seem lighter on my back and shoulders, and my glutes got more fatigued as I dropped deeper and deeper per set.  I almost dumped the last rep of the first four sets of squats by leaning forward too much.  I managed to recover and growled it to the top.  On my last set my glutes were simply getting fried, and I couldn't break at the knees on the last rep.  I'll add another 10 lbs because I don't think missing a rep was all that big a deal, considering it's been days since I last squatted.  I'll bring my shoes home so I can squat and bench over the long weekend.  I tend to do better at home as I'm usually not pressed for time.
