Squat + Thursday: Another Broken P.R.

EVERYTHING HURTS. But it’s good. The lower back got really pumped again tonight, but it was towards the end of my squatting. and I stuck with just the Rehband soft belt (and knee sleeves) for all sets. The Rehband is much better in this situation.

And I’m pleased to say that this is a legitimate, all new personal record for me. I’ve not performed this many reps with 200 before, and not with a straight bar (my previous best was a max effort set of 8 reps with cambered bar… a long time ago now). I’m really looking forward to working towards 250 once more…. and from there, hopefully 300 before too long. I’m way behind on this one (not as far behind as I am with my press, but close) and I need to get on with building more leg strength in order to further develop my deadlift, and everything else.
