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#
5, 5, 5, 5, 4
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.
