5/3/1: Cycle 5 – 3s Week: Squat: 3/31/14

31 Mar

Cycle 5 – 3s Week: Squat: 3/31/14

Energy level was good as I left for the gym after work (6/10).
Energy bumped up a bit once I started my work sets (7/10) and stayed there for most of the session.

Surprised that I had a fairly quick session, compared to my usual squat days, considering I was chatting with a gym buddy.
Great session overall!

PS:
I didn’t realize the lid of my water jug was broken and I end up spilling 1/2 of my Intra-shake as I was doing my warm-up sets!

Sets felt easy.

Energy level bumped up as I started my work sets (7/10).

Even did a pause at the end of the 2nd work set.

Think my waist shrunk slightly and I should have tightened my belt a bit more.

Noticed it on my top set and think I could have done 5 reps if my belt was tighter!

Really focused on keeping my chest and elbows up!

Easy sets.

Nice easy finisher.
