Thanks guys. Here you go:

SQUATS

Stretching

Squats with straight bar
Bar x lots x 2
70kgs x 5
110kgs x 3
Add belt
150kgs x 1
170kgs x 1 Heaviest I've gone straight weight since hip injury
Add briefs
200kgs x 3
Add loose wraps
220kgs x 2
Add new suit bottoms
240kgs x 1
Tighter wraps
255kgs x 1

Was beat after this but managed:

Light band leg curls
2 x 50

Standing cable abs
2 sets of 25

Pleased with how that went. Raw squats were explosive and pain free. They felt the best they have since the injury. Still got another 2 weeks of the geared mesocycle but will do some more raw work after that. 240 was a little high so set-up to take 255 a little deeper. I stumbled as I walked back which didn't help. Managed to compose myself though and squatted it comfortably. I felt like I took it deep enough but looking at the video I'm still a little high. I'll get there.

Felt beat after the squats so did some light assistance and called it a day. Next week will go even heavier and add reverse bands to overload before trying to smash a depth PB on week 4.

Video is here:


Back in tomorrow night for reverse band bench, shirted and raw. May do some light recovery work later in the work gym as well.
