Huge numbers here!! The bands helped quite a bit. I was told they only take off 100 at the bottom, but I am not sure I believe that.
Help or not, huge numbers on your back.

Thanks for the support guys!!! Really appreciate it.

Did a quick workout this morning, had the urge to squat again and put on some knee wraps.

Squats
135x2x5
225x3
315x1
365x1
405x1 w/ knee wraps

Partial Squats
315x3
365x3 singles

Nothing serious, could have gone a lot heavier with the partials. I need to get more confident with heavy weights on my back. I really need more heavy ab work.

Squatting heavy each week has worked wonders for me in a short period of time.

I think it will be good, my weights for the next 3 weeks of juggernaut are going to get very heavy. So, I should be good.

This week is my deload, I am going to squat in flat shoes this week. I have been using my adidas weightlifting shoes with a slight heel. I would like to feel the difference. I think the flat shoes will make sumos a bit easier.

I have been thinking about switching to heeled shoes for squats.

I am starting to see a common theme in my training. When I take less pre-workout I have better workouts. I feel much stronger and the heavier weights feel light.

Tonight I took maybe 1/2 scoop of k-otic and felt very strong on floor press. I was handling 325 with no spotter and no lift off. Over the last couple of months I have noticed that I feel very strong on deload workouts. And those are the weeks when I take less pre-workout. It has nothing to do with the actual product or brand I think I just take too much.

My nerves get crazy, and I feel less solid. Like saturday, I felt uncomfortable with 415 on my back because I was shaky. Probably too much stimulants. And I have noticed on my max weeks of juggernaut I have crappy workouts. This is when I am taking a full serving of pre workout, and I get really jacked up but do not really perform that great.

Moral of the story, I need to cut back on my pre workout stimulants. I think stimulants help a lot for high reps and long workouts. But when using max weight, they can make me feel shaky. The experiment will continue, tomorrow I am going to do speed squats and deads with only 1/2 scoop of k-otic and see how I feel. I may lessen the dose even more on thursday.

Does any one else have this same feeling?

Tuesday Deload Lower Body
Really just lowered my volume today, had a fun workout. My experiment continues with taking less pre workout. I am hoping this will also allow me to sleep better. I took about 1/2 scoop of k-otic before my workout. It worked well, good focus and solid energy.

Speed Box Squats
***all sets plus average bands
145x5
235x2x2
285x4x2
305x4x2
All sets felt very strong!!

Rack Pulls
225x1
315x1
405x2 singles
455x1
These all felt very easy, first time I have done any conventional pulling in a while. Weights flew off the rack!!!

Abs on GHR
3x20

Back Extensions
Doubled mini around neck 3 x 15
-really tried to squeeze these at the top. Good pump and burn!

I switched things up today and used my chucks. They felt awesome, the weight felt very solid and I felt I could push thru my heels better. I will continue to experiment with each of my shoes. Heeled vs flat. I think the flat shoes will really help my deads.

I will continue to log my thoughts on less pre workout. I am going to try to stay around 1/2 scoop of k-otic. Possibly even less if my energy already feels good. Maybe a tiny bit more when I am tired. Very happy with the results so far.

I have been 99% off of pre-workouts this last 6 months. I save them for my big PR days, more as a crutch I guess.
