Lower body - squats

Mon, 20 Jan 20

Squats: 135x5, 225x5, 245x5, 265x2x5, 275x2x5
Anderson Squats: 315x8, 335x3x8

The squats were supposed to be at 245x5x5, but the RPE felt more like a 7, so I upped them to 265.  I'd say the RPE was still about a 7 so I went for 275.  275 felt like a solid 8-8.5.  Anderson squats were hard but good at 335.  Definitely feeling the pressure on my body when quarter squatting those.

Finished up with 1 km of rowing - took a little over 6 minutes, which is pretty bad, but my shin splints are killing me.  Did a lot of stretching during the session - but it was just pure agony.  I'll keep working on them - I know they'll improve because I was doing 5 km in 10-15 minutes last year.
