About those squats - they are the mind killer. The more I do them the more I find it is about technique in breathing than it is leg strength.

Then for the next 4-5 reps take 1-2 breaths and then for the next 5 I am slowing down to a least 3 breaths between reps. The last five is where the "grow or die" survival mechanisim kicks in. My knees start knocking together like a boy being bullied by 6 big guys (3 on each side). Sometimes I want to close my eyes and pray for it to be over. But on those last couple with my legs shakin' and weights starting to clang I take up to 10 or more breaths and push til I see the light at the end of the tunnel...

I can literally feel myself growing as I eat half a house the following week. Whew, at least I didn't die - that time!
It truly is all mental, I know I can get every rep up but I also know that every rep past 15 is going to be painful.

30 mins of sprinting very slow today, ran out of breath pretty quick.

Notes: Felt very good, was able to manage a two hour power nap before . A weight PR for log clean and press, went for weight today because of how good I was feeling. Snowed today so couldn't do farmers walk for the 4th week in a row, my hands feel better but I feel like I'm losing progress with it.

Even though I have only been lifting serious for one year I now know one thing about lifting, with 20 rep squats pace yourself throughout the entire thing. Last week I went straight to 10 reps then slowed down, every rep past 10 was hard. Today did 2 squats at a time with 3 deep breaths in between, didn't start getting hard till 17. Though I did switch to singles at 12 I think.
Awesome session mab, keep it up

Funny how one day we feel light and full of energy, then on another day we feel slow and out of breath. Keep up the consistant work.

I think those two day though are intertwined, a really good squat session followed by day of sprinting.

1/15/12

Weighed in this morning at 193, and I am starting IF today and running it for at least two weeks to see how I like it.

Also if anyone watched the WSM finals last night I could see myself a lot.

12 is usually the death point for me. I have found no matter what I do it's singles from there on out.

Good tip. I have never tried to work them in doubles. Usually I ram until 8, and then do a couple doubles.

1/16/12

Axel Clean and Press each rep
180x5
180x5
180x3

Chin-ups
80x3
80x3
80x2
80x2
80x2
35x10

CGBP
245x4
245x3
245x3
245x3
245x3
205x10

Barbell Curl superset with Dips
115x9
BWx8
115x8
BWx12

Notes: Day two of IF and had a lot of energy and was very focused, was a little worried at first because it took awhile to warm up. C&P felt very light until for some reason the last set just felt so heavy I just had a lot of trouble cleaning it on this set.

Chins and CGBP felt pretty solid, wish I could have gotten a 5x4 on CGBP though.

Only added dips because I was feeling really good, didn't go anywhere close to failure on either. I'm pretty sure I could have gotten to 20 on both sets, really just did it to satisfy my ego.
