ME Squat Day
I went after it tonight with the straight bar and 4 chains, I got this funk going and I have not broken this record for a long time, well last night I felt awesome, I got to 150kg on the bar and things were flying along, I though I was a sure shot to break the streak. I was wrong! I jumped to 160kg and pushed it up slowly, didnít think much of it as I was a bit loose in my setup. I took 167.5kg next and I donít really know what happened, but my knees shot forward way before anything else moved and I found myself muscling up one hell of a grind. I considered taking 176kg for the record but didnít, that screw up took way too much out of me. Instead Isat on the low box for 5 sets of triples. I finished with back work, tonight I will destroy the glutes, hams etc for letting me down so badly.

Part of this squat issue is definitely related to gripping the bar, last year I changed to a thumbless grip in an effort to relieve arm pain, whilst it has worked it is definitely harder for me to get as tight under the bar. I am also not getting tight enough in the thoracic area, probably for the same reason. Iíll have to experiment tonight. All my other exercises are unaffected and going up like crazy, hell my wrapless SSB squat has nearly caught my straight bar squat with wraps, so something aint right!!!!!!
