    [Fierce 5] Haven’t squatted for two weeks - Should I squat full weight tonight?

    I have been running Fierce 5 full body for a while and have started the Fierce 5 U/L split this week. Between programs I took a deload week and then used a few gym sessions to work on my bench form primarily, as I’ve been struggling to nail it down.

    Long story short, I haven’t squatted since 12/28, so nearly two weeks ago now. Tonight is lower body A on the U/L split and I should be squatting 3x5. My last 3x5 on the full body was 305 lb. So, following the program’s progression scheme, I’d be doing 315 lb 3x5 tonight.

    My question is, after going almost two weeks without squatting, should I be good to go ahead and lift the 315? Would that long of a time not squatting cause any issues with sticking to the progression scheme?

    Could either go for the 315 or repeat the 305. I don't think it would make that big of a difference but it would really depend how proficient you are at squatting. I imagine during your warm up sets you'll get a feel for whether or not to increase or stay the same weight.

    I'd go 305 and then just build back up. If you're moving to a new program its not a bad idea to start off with submaximal weight.

    Whatever feels right. Not a big deal either way in the long run.
    8/1/17 - 145-150lb. Skinny SOB. Start of Fierce 5 Novice and lifting journey.

    5/1/18 - 180lb. Start of Cut. Plan to end around 165-170lb.

    Let's go!

    Just see how you feel when you do your warm up sets.

    There is actually a chance that after two weeks of rest you might actually come back stronger.

    For me personally... I'd need to deload slightly or I'd feel VERY sore the next day, although after a session or two I'd be back again.

    I guess you've done the workout now -->What happened?
    Faith in Jesus first and faith in squats second.
    Then other details will start to slot themselves into place.

    I was feeling good after my warmup sets (bar, 135, 225, 275) and decided to go for 305, 310, then 315. Hit 305 and 310, but felt pretty spent and should have stopped. Went for 315 anyway like an idiot and had to dump it. Got in the hole with it and had nothing left in the tank.
