Fucking awesome workout. Huge front squat PR, my last was 245 for 2 and it felt pretty hard. I felt like I could have had 285x2 today but I'll just do it another time. Extremely satisfied with today's workout.
Here's the video of my front squat PR.
Yeah. Rock on, nice front squats.
Fufu you the squat master. I'm gonna start doing front squats as my ME work they seem to work well for you. Do you feel they effect how well you can back squat like carry over i mean?
One BIG thing that really helps out my low rep squat stuff(1-3) is getting really psyched before a set and unracking the weight very fast and with alot of power. It really makes the weight feel lighter. For example, my last heavy back squat day my working sets(325) felt lighter being unracked than my previous warm up of 275. Helps the mental aspect which we all know is a big part of heavy squatting.
Haha, I know exactly what you mean. I even grunt a little when I first lift the bar off of the rack just to let the weight know I mean business.
You sure are throwing up some nice numbers lately. I envy your weight to strength ratio.
