Cambered Squat Bar Squats
Angled Leg Presses
27 Minutes of Stretching
Comments: I bought a cambered squat bar back in 2011 and I used it twice and then stopped. So it has been a while. Unlike most csbs, this one is hollow, has no knurling and is 2" diameter. Not sure what to expect with this, I just knew that 450lbs was doable considering that was what I did to a low box back in 2011 and I'd like to think I'm stronger now. Bar position was awkward and the left side kept getting caught in the j-hook when I would unrack it. Made me expend some energy to do that, all the while making just the bar didn't just slide down my back. I was going plate-quarter-plate but figured I could do more than 455lbs but less than 495lbs so I started making smaller jumps to hit in-between that. Felt tough but I got it; lots of shaking going through the midpoint of the last rep. Moved on to leg press from there. Seems to be easier to warm-up on leg press when I start out with something like squats beforehand, rather than warm-up from nothing. Last two sets felt good, with the last one being quite tough, just not as bad as when I did 710x12. Maxed out the leg extension machine and did my reps. Legs will be sore.
