Squat Monday: So Far So Good

WITH my lower posterior still pretty sore from the beatings I’ve given it lately, tonight I had to scrap my plan to rep out 200 kilos and be content with 3 by 3 of 170. I belted up for the second set but, much like my last set of deadlifts, the belt felt unnecessary and I dropped it for the third. I’m pretty sure I felt my pants rip a little with the first set, which is a testament to their depth. I kept them deep, and concentrated on not aggravating the tear in my right hip’s labrum. Fortunately I did not, which is a real victory for me; when I assessed the damage after my squat session last fortnight I feared the worst, as I do.

But my plan seems to be working. My knees healed enough in the fortnight to punish them again tonight, the injury behaved itself and I managed some reasonably heavy squats. I know I’m going to have to step it up in the New Year, but this is, so far, very promising. The orthotics and my new post-training regimen are clearly doing their jobs.
