Squats: Testing Max

Fri, 16 Sep 16

Squats: 135x10, 225x2x5, 275x5, 315x5, 365x3, 395x2, 405x1, 425x1

I felt pretty strong today, so I decided to test my max squat.  Belted, knee and wrist wraps - no stims.  The 405 went sooooo easy I was like - I'm going to try more.  Initially I started to load up 415, but I said screw it and loaded up 425.  I'm pretty sure I could have dive bombed it, but I was a little cautious and took my time - decreased my stretch reflex a bit.  That being said, it was perhaps a little shallower than I'd like (but I'd need a camera to know for sure), but it was nowhere's near being grindy.

Call me shallow, but a bro was watching me lift.  (20-30 ish years old)  He was impressed at the weight I was moving, especially when I told him I was 50.  He said I was jacked lol, and finds it so impressive when all the young people bitch and complain and I'm putting in the work, and I got two fist bumps.  It's weird, but that made me feel pretty good.  Does it make me shallow?  I don't know.  Weightlifting is really one of those things that only other weightlifters get.  My friends and family don't know what it is to move 425 lbs.  That's just a shit ton of weight - is it good, is it bad?  What is good, what is bad?  Bro's know.

Lol.  #brosknow.
