    Alright, so I got Day 7 & 8 done.

    ****

    Yesterday was BUSY at the gym. I'm not going back at that time. It was ridiculous. I managed to work in with another female. She was doing 95#, and I just kept the same weight to make it easy. People were actually waiting in line to get a chance at the rack.

    4 sets of 8-10 front squats @ 95#
    2 sets of 12 back squats @ 95#

    Ended up being somewhere around 50 reps. These high reps were hard. My back tightened up and I was worried about todays squats.

    *****

    Thursday 1/3/13

    GM squats
    95x5
    115x5(x2)

    Back squats -Day 8
    135x5
    155x5
    165x3
    175x3
    185x3 - up until here, I was tired, hard to focus, get tight, finally pulled myself together
    190x2
    195x2 *
    200x2 * best two sets
    205x2 - PR for reps

    145x8
    145x3 (x6) 30sec rest

    Bench
    95x6 (x4)
    - felt so strong, I loved it

    OH extensions
    35#x8(x4)

    Handstands
    - maybe 5-8 sec free standing?

    OH press
    35x6(x2)

    *today was such a good workout. I was not expectecting it. First 5am workout in a long time, fasted, little sleep etc.
    *I'm actually getting a little scared at how well the squats are going. I really don't want to crash or hurt myself. Today I felt like I could have done 210x2 also.

    A note to add:
    - weight is increasing
    - can't tell if it's just bloat from food, drinking, TOM, too many squats or "real" weight gain
    - abs are feeling SORE and almost bruised in one spot, although I think that is from the belt
    - no pain in knees lately

    I dropped 3lbs of water weight yesterday. It's a bit of everything lol Give it some time for the holiday madness to subside.

    What I have found helpful with the front squats is to inhale at the top, then hold it until coming out of the hole and sometime even until locking out at the bottom. My lower back was hurting, and this helped to keep my back and my core tight. Breathing out too early makes me lose tightness. The belt might also alter your form and the way you contract your core.

    Very nice volume! Atta girl. Has the soreness gone away by now?

    3lbs drop would be nice! I stepped on the scale this morning 132.4 - so not too bad. I expect another week or two and my body should even out a little.

    i'll try pay more attention to breathing, sometimes it's hit or miss, at least until the weight gets heavy enough that I HAVE to pay attention.

    Legs feel pretty good, if I sit for long periods of time, I do notice hamstrings stiffening up, but otherwise not bad. I seem to have picked up some wrist pain today though, I'm trying to decide if it's worth altering my grip- move my hands out wider probably.

    I'm not getting the volume in, in the same way that you were, but it's been fun hitting these heavy singles.

    Well - you do have a house now...so maybe it will happen!

    Not going to weigh myself for another week. I just feel puffy, not fun.

    Love the sleeves - I have no idea how I squatted without them.

    Ha I have to convince Vlad to purchase one....notaneasytask...he's all about saving wants to open his own business in a few yrs.

    You should put scale away for more than a week then maybe you won't feel puffy...I used to get like that when I was regularly weighing myself...just saying! Lot of it was mental.

    Agree about sleeves!

    I've been thinking about this, here's how I'm going to rationalize it. I've been lifting for quite a while - maybe 4.5 years - primarily for strength. I did have an injury (out for 9months), but if my goal is strength I 'should' have been able to hit these weights, before now. Perhaps now that I'm spending time working on form and just spending time with the squats, the numbers are catching up? I am a slooow learner, and usually really need to focus to get stuff down. Reiterating/repeating something 'everyday' is usually when I do best. eg. in work, for tests, speeches, experiments and in play: pullups, handstands...other stuff

    You all help out a lot too. I really have been trying to remember your critiques and the squats go easier when I can pull myself together. Everytime I leave the gym I feel so accomplished and I loovveee coming here to write it all out. /end sappy story.

    Agree about sleeves!
    wow, your own business would be awesome (if a lot of work).

    hah. yea it's funny. I can be 130.9 and think - oh, I'm light today(put on happy face). but if it's 131.2. I say, where did that all come from???

    Sometimes it's just for record purposes though.

    Saturday 1/5/13

    Gym was busy, got there later than normal. Had to do leg press to wait for a squat rack. The first rack I got has the fixed safety bars and I couldn't get low enough. I used this to warm up to 175 and switched to the other rack at 185, when it opened up. I should have spent more time warming up, instead of jumping into the 185. I felt rushed and under pressure and too many people, so just jumped into it.

    Leg press
    2 sets of 8 @2pps
    2 sets of 8 @3 pps
    *lol. have no idea how some of you are loading this up.

    Back squat - Day 10
    95x5
    135x5
    155x3
    165x3
    175x3
    185x3
    190x3
    195x3
    200x2
    205x2
    190x2(x3)

    * The past few sessions I've been hitting the safety bar on the right side only for the occasional rep. I didn't think much of it, except that I was going a little deeper on that side only. Today I noticed some pretty uneven pushing in my legs. The right side is stronger and compensates for dragging from the left side. At the end of the workout, I have some pain in the right hip/groin. I'm hoping I wasn't straining unevenly. I'll be watching it closely tomorrow, and doing lots of stretching, foam rolling and icing today.

    Some playing around on hack squats - maybe 5 sets

    pullups
    BWx6(x3)

    Front squats
    5@95, 105, 105, 115, 125

    Snatch deads
    185x3
    205x3(x2)

    RDL
    135x8 (x2)

    Rear delt rows
    27x12(x4)

    Sunday 1/6/13

    Drank too much last night. Was not hungover, but really tired and dehydrated.

    Back Squats - Day 11
    95x5
    115x5
    135x5
    155x3
    165x3
    175x3
    185x3
    190x2
    195x1 (x2)
    200x1 (x2)
    205x1
    210x0 <- hit the rack stepping back, lost my tightness
    210x1 <- yuck, felt hard.
    175x5
    155x5
    135x5(x2)

    I was worried about my hip/groin, but everything felt pretty smooth. I'm not sure what was going on at the past few sessions. I took videos from the front today, couldn't see any uneven loading on legs and since it felt okay, I'm gonna proceed foward. I'm thinking about trying to get 10 sets in at 185 or 190 tomorrow and continue working on form.
    Tuesday I have a big experiment to do, may just take the day off from squats.

    I know!!! It was right at the hip bone down to my inner thigh. Today it's feeling okay and squats went well, but hopefully it won't flare up again. I did avoid doing doubles at the heavier weight, because I could feel the strain just waiting to occur. I feel like I'm walking a fine line, where too much or the wrong movement will push me to injury/pain, but as long as I stay on the line, I'm doing great and even setting PRs.

    I wish. I meant for 10 sets, was hoping to do doubles, but played it safe and did singles only. Someday I will get 10 reps at that weight though.

    Not sure what's happening tomorrow, I won't have time to go in the morning. I may try to fit some squats in later in the day, otherwise, will just take the day off.

    i have this issue with my right hip as well. i can totally feel me pushing more on my right side when going up.

    Someday I will get 10 reps at that weight though.
    i totally believe you. you are a hard worker. it's been fun coming in here to see what you've done each day in squats.

I feel like I'm walking a fine line, where too much or the wrong movement will push me to injury/pain, but as long as I stay on the line, I'm doing great and even setting PRs.
    Damn it, exactly like mine!! It started slow, then went away for a bit, then came back with a vengeance. It was a constant tension at its worst, I couldn't sleep at night because of it. I guess this is the part where I advise you to stop before you make it worse, but even with hindsight being 20/20, I would still have pushed through it lol. At least ice it, and modify your stance a bit..knees pointed forward and a more narrow stance should recruit the adductors less. But if it's the beginning of a tear, anything will make it worse, ya know?

    I was considering just ignoring this post.

    Still haven't missed a day, but really not sure how much longer I can keep it up. Can't get enough food in, not working efficiently, not sleeping well, my body still feels puffy etc. Tomorrow will be day 14, which I feel pretty good about. Perhaps I will think about slowing down or stopping then. I haven't had any problems since Saturday, but if it does come back that would be awful.
