28 Jun Offseason Week 5, day 1- Squat and Deadlift
Decided to put a new pair of Overkill Squat briefs and break them in. I will be transitioning into gear over the next 5 weeks and need to get it all dialed in.
315×1 – 3 sets
405×1 – 3 sets
Not used to the pressure that the gear adds, as its been about 4 months since the last time I wore any squat gear. I REALLY like the overkill briefs. Other than being weak and not used to the weight/pressure – I’m very happy with how the squat and pull feel right now.
Worked doubles, but found myself not focusing on the first rep, so I finished with a MUCH better and easy single. More stuff to work on, of course. Always something.
I’ll be floor pressing on Monday for bench, and as soon as my new bench shirt comes, I’ll be working in that as well. [share title=”Share this Article” facebook=”true” twitter=”true” google_plus=”true” linkedin=”true” pinterest=”true” reddit=”true” email=”true”][author title=”About the Author”]
