RM Squats at Harry's

I am learning to quite enjoy these squat sessions, each one is like a personal venture of trying to sort out my appalling squat form and not knowing what flaw i'm going to find next but this make it more fun in my opinion and it is a challenge I am taking with enthusiasm. Today I had a few more tweaks that I wanted to try after watching the elite FTS - So you think you can squat videos, which Mr Chaos kindly shared with me and took the advice of working through problems from the head down.

Squats -

60kg x 10
80kg x 8
100kg x 3
115kg x 2
135kg x 2
135kg x 2
135kg x 2
135kg x 2
135kg x 2
135kg x 2

The advice paid off to some extent. Picking a spot and focusing on it to keep my head up and help stop the lean forward almost eradicated it completely until I got tired towards the end. I decided to do all my squats beltless today so there was numerous beltless PBs and it felt a lot more comfortable than I anticipated and helped me concentrate more on the spoon like back position VG explained to me. Still haven't quite figured the feet positioning though, I was hitting depth or at least just below parallel but it felt like my knees were going forward again. Definitely more work on my hamstring, hip and ankle flexibility is needed but it didn't feel like my knees tracked in at all today which i'm hoping is a good sign?


Box Squats -

80kg x 5
80kg x 5
80kg x 5
80kg x 5
60kg x 10

Now this was more like it, felt better than ever and felt like my feet were in the correct position, knees tracking along the right line and back more upright Happy now just to translate this to free squats and I might be half way there.


CGBP -

60kg x 10
80kg x 8
100kg x 6
120kg x 3
130kg x 2
Sleeves on
150kg x f Got ambitious here, after only just failing it there other week thought i'd give it a go but I was no where near and in the process aggravated my bicep tendon/elbow.
120kg x 4

Left it at that as felt like I had nothing left in the tank and arm was a bit sore. Happy with the way training is going at the moment and finally feel like the body has got over the 3 comps even thought its taken about a month! Bring on the deadlifts tomorrow I say Happy

He needs to get another bar it's ridiculous to have a gym with one olympic bar! It's bad enough having 2! Don't reckon he would do that.

Yes mate! It will be easily solved if he wasn't so tight and bought a couple of bars and a squat rack while he's at it Happy
