For max weight:  (sets across)
21 Back Squats
Rest 2.5 minutes
15 Back Squats
Rest 1.5 minutes
9 Back Squats

This is a good test of productive strength. What is the max amount of weight you can use and keep all reps unbroken? Here are some standards:
Standard #1 - 132#/88#
Standard #2 - 165#/115#
Standard #3 - 198#/137#
Standard #4 - 225#/154#
Standard #5 - 242#/176#

Use the weights above as guidelines. It might be 184# or 120# for you this time but ultimately, you want to reach and pass each standard. You will see this workout again. If you're successful this time (all reps unbroken), move up 5 pounds next time.

Is this what your intake looks like?

  2. I did this with 165# Rx'd before seeing the guidelines above. I did it at the Y in Norfolk, and as big as it is, they have 2 squat racks.......

  4. My workouts have gotten a lot better since I cut grains out of my diet. I need to eat less fruit and more veggies. But I can tell the difference in how I feel since I got rid of grains.

  8. Also, we definitely needed Greg Mo for this one--he's awesome at this kind of thing. I saw the SOB do 208# for 30 one time.

  24. Started 154# - felt pretty good until #6, when my knee did something a little scary and I decided to cut my losses and take a rain check. I'll try to get this in soon.

Thanks For Visiting!
