Not going for the 6-pack look, goal is to strengthen my core for the big lifts.

Decided to skip my OH Press deload and just dive into some squats today!

Friday, March 8th. 2013
Wave 1 - Cycle 5

Squat (Cycle 4 Percentages)
2x5xBar
105x5
130x5
155x3
180x3
205x3
235x3

*Wasn't real happy with my last set, I failed to hit 3 reps a few weeks ago and was starting to have a mental block thinking about last time.. I set the safety pins in just in case I couldn't make it and I may have set the pins a little high. I was facing opposite of the mirror so I'm not sure how low I got, I may have been a little shy of hitting parallel.

Back Raises
3x10 w/ medicine ball
*Not sure how much the medicine ball weighed, maybe 10 pounds? But, it was enough to get a nice burn/pump going.

GHR's
4x8xBW

DB Side Bends
3x10 w/ 40lb DB

Calf Raises
3x10x35

Is dumping a rep an issue for you right now?

I had that fear for about 2 years on my buffalo bar, simply because of using a wide grip.

Theres something about squatting that makes me nervous, I don't know if its because I'm training by myself, the weight, fear of not being able to bring the weight back up, could be a fear dumping the bar or maybe a combination of all the above.. Though I know I have to change something.

i am the same WB i squat on my own at home just using squat stands i have no where to dump the weight if it gets hairy and since i pulled my hip and groin i am very wary of the squat now, i am starting to work my squat weight back up slowly but i am very cautions.

Bill, might invest in a pair of sawhorses like MikeM has in his videos if you're worried about dumping the weight. I had some cheapo plastic ones that held up okay to about 225. But then I dropped 125 from overhead on them and they exploded.
