22 Dec Zane Geeting, Friday night squat training
I am currently training for the XPC finals at the Arnold. Between now and then I’ll be doing Dan
Dalenberg’s push/pull meet here in MI this January.
Friday night was a good one. I went in with more energy than usual, despite being just as far into my day as I normally would be. Dirk was under the weather, so it was just Brandon Crabill and I training. While my energy was good, I did have some tightness in my right quad, and wasn’t 100% sure what to expect. This was to be my last session of off-season squats before transitioning into my competition cycle for the XPC finals. I decided to play it by feel so I was good to go for the coming cycle.
Here’s how it went:
General warm up
Belt only squat
warm ups, followed by:
These felt great. The 600 was an RPE of 8-9. This puts me in a great spot going into the comp phase of training.
SS bar 5 sec. pause squat
This was supposed to be another set of 5, but my right hamstring was feeling a bit tight, so I shut it down. No reason to push things.
warm ups, then…
3 sets of 15, up to 70 lbs.
3 sets of 20-25 with 315
That was the end of it. Brandon and I both had a good session and I’m looking forward to seeing how this sets me up for getting back into gear. Its been a long time since I’ve had squat gear on, so it will be interesting to see if its like riding a bike, or if there’s a learning curve again.[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”]
