Back Squats and Saxon Pulls

December 29, 2011 - Before Supper

1a) Back Squats - Oly Bar - Heavy
45 x 3
205 x 5
305 x 3, 3
365 x 1
385 x 1, 1
395 x 1, 1, 1, 1, 1, 1, 1
245 x 10

1b) Saxon Pulls - Sumo - Medium
155 x 3
165 x 5, 5, 5, 5, 5, 5, 5

Felt great even with sucking snot back into my face between reps lol. Back squats are coming back good. My only complaint is my left elbow (which gives me problems with lots of stuff) and getting a raw back again. All of the work reps felt very strong and easy with zero slowing down. I'm pretty excited about this.

For the last 5 sets of the Saxon pulls I went and did them all touch and go with a slow reversal on the bottom. I think all of that time under tension will help with my pinch overall when coupled with the heavy 1, 2 and 3's.

I did a quick video to check my squat depth on my work sets.
