First day back in a squat rack
It's been about 6 weeks since I've hit squats. I really needed to get my lower back feeling better... and finally I feel ready. I think the time off did wonders for my mind also. I was really hyped up for today. It was the first time since the break that I trained with my normal crew. I've been going in early and training by myself during my rehab process... so it was cool to see the guys. Well, I haven't posted a workout in a while so what the h#ll here ya go:
4 sets of 12-15
donkey calf/ leg curl/ leg extension (did this nonstop)
felt good & warm put on my groove briefs and headed to the squat rack:
bar 2 sets 10
145 1 set 10
235 1 set 10
(put on my belt here on out)
325 1 set 6
415 1 set 3
505 1 set 3
595 1 set 3
(wrapped the knees here)
685 1 set 3
all in all I'm happy... actually couldn't be happier the weights felt good and my time off didn't seem to hurt my squat too bad... I hope this is a good sign! I will keep ya posted...

i agree!you must find what workd for you and always keep changin routines, frequency, and exercises so you don't adapt. i don't like to change my exercises weekly like westside, but variations of the main lifts that mimic the movement work best for me. do you press 2 days a wk or just one?
