Default Squat Day

Aaaah, my nemesis...

Warmup: 5 minutes on rower, 10 air squats, 4 x 5 x KB goblet squats

1 x 10 @ 135#
1 x 3 @ 185#

220#
5, 5, 5, 5, 4

Chin-ups
10, 8, 5, 5, 5, 5

I think I might know why squats are such a problem for me. Compared to benching, pressing, deadlifting, the load seems so much more taxing. I think I'm gaging my limitations vs the effort made on those exercises when this is really a beast in it's own

Case in point: On my first set last night, I was about to quit after 3 reps. THen I thought: NO way! You've done more! And completed the 5 reps... same ocurred on sets 2, 3, 4 and 5... wanted to quit, pushed a bit more

I think my assessment of whether I have a rep left in me needs improvement.
