John,

Wondering what your goal is at least for the interim?

I want to get my squat up to around 375-400lb. Squat has never been a strong lift for me. Also, I need to get stronger if I want my Oly lifts to go up. I have been stuck around 92.5kg snatch and 115kg c&j for a while. There is never a problem of motivation to train those. They are fun to me, especially snatch. I would always find a reason not to squat heavy or only do so occasionally. So i am trying to squat everyday for four weeks and limiting everything else so I don't over do it. so far I am liking having to get in the squat rack everyday. My squats are improving, and the sets are getting better as I get heavier, compared to what they used to be. Just trying to train the weakness I guess.

Squat 8x135, 5x225, 5x245, 5x265

Felt the need to do a little volume in my squats. Felt good. The groove is getting better although not automatic all the time.

Not too bad. 325 was heavy. form didn't break down as much as usual when I get this heavy, which is good. I haven't gone this heavy in a long time for a single let alone a double.

Tuesday 9/9

Squat 8x135, 5x225, 11x1x275

Snatch grip RDL 3x8x80kg


Why 11 sets? because 8, 9 and 10 felt good so I figured one more was in order. Felt good after hitting 325 for 2 yesterday.

Thursday 9/11

Squat 8x135, 3x2x225, 3x2x245, 3x2x265


Stayed upright in all the sets. Third set of 225 and 2nd set of 265 felt great. Hit the groove right where I was supposed to, up and down, felt like an empty bar on my back. Bringing the hands in helped. Need to be consistent n finding that groove.
