Cheers all will do

Bench/Squat Day

Solid night, I benched the crazy plates for quite a few sets tonight, I used 20 kg of hanging weight at around 80% ish. I then did a rep set and began box squatting after. I used the SSB and went to a max single, I finished by doing sets in between 60-70% plus the added band tension. Say what you want about box squats for raw lifters, but when you use them as assistance and actually box squat correctly, there is not an exercise on earth that replicates them, they are fantastic. Torched every squat related muscle in the body. Would I move back to box squats exclusively? No but they are awesome when used on occasions.

Bench/Squat Day 8/4/13

20kg Chaos Bench (all + 20kg hanging plates)

2x5 72.5kg
5x3 80kg
1x8 65kg

SSB No Handle Box Squats + Orange Band

1x3 80kg
1x2 95kg
1x1 110kg
1x1 120kg
1x1 127.5kg
3x5 85kg
3x3 92.5kg
2x2 100kg

Smoked, holding the SSB that way stresses the back to the max, and sitting on the box blew up my hammies like a balloon, very good workout.
