Hatfield Overload Squats
17” Wide Stance Paused Box Squats
One Legged Dumbbell Romanian Deadlifts
Spread Eagle Sit-ups
26 Minutes of Stretching
All the aches are coming. Knee not as bad as it was two weeks ago but
certainly noticeable. Elbows and shoulders are really sore and achy.
Also got some indigestion, not sure where that came from. Not stopping
haha. The go to hatfields started off the session. Continuing to
increase the weight for the 5x5. Weight is still moving good. Legs
aren’t getting tired but core definitely feels fatigue over the sets.
Good power for the first three reps of each set but a slight slowdown on
the last two reps. Still feel I could double the reps each set though.
Paused box squats with a wide stance followed. I did the warm-ups a
little differently this time. One higher rep set with the bar and then
going up in weight each set before doing the working sets. Knee
surprised me on the first set so it felt a lot tougher than the
following sets. Much like last week, I feel I got better as the sets
went on. Last two sets felt the best. Hands were getting sweaty on these
haha. Hips aren’t fighting me as much on these now. Bodyweight warm-ups
on the one-leggeds again to get my form down and ready. Weight is still
not an issue and I felt my balance improved each set. I did technically
more than three reps on the first set but a rep on each side was “ugly”
and I wanted to count good reps here. Good hamstring work. Leg
extensions after that. More weight, still going for 100 reps. This time,
it wasn’t as tough as last week. I didn’t start to feel anything until
about 50 reps into it and by 70 reps I think my nerve endings in my legs
all died and I finished it up pretty easy. Abs to finish up the
session. That first rep always seems to sort out my spine after all the
squatting haha. Stretched a little before calling it a night.
