27 Jul LCS Week 2, Session 2 squat/dead combo
Lowcountry Strength is moving into our off season after coming off a recent meet. The plan is to find a meet in the later part of the fall or early winter. I have no desire to get back into the gear while the gym temperature is above 85degrees. Haha!
Check out my latest article on Power Rack Strength about trying to Learn to Suffer.
Still really enjoying a squat/dead combo day. While it’s a tough day, it gives me one more day towards the end of the week to work on some single leg work and prehab stuff that I have been neglecting. I’m alternating heavy squat/light dead and next week will be light squats/heavy dead. Still getting in one more lower assistance insures that I’m getting everything covered.
4 sets of 6 at RPE 7
3 sets of 6 at RPE 6 with 60 seconds rest
Short and sweet. I’ve got a bit longer warm up routine involved on these lower body days so there’s still more work getting in. I’ve also taken to doing some weighted walks either early morning or post training on these days. Cardio has been lacking so trying to bring that up.
Getting there with some hip mobility.
Pre-training warm up:
Kneeling Side plank w/ abduction
Half kneeling adductor stretch
single leg deadlifts
goblet squat with band around the knees
Side plank raise
90/90 pails and rails
v-sit hold on the wall
