Squat Saturday

SQUATS took precedent today as I’m running out of time to get myself sufficiently comp-ready for February. I’m still very lucky to have functioning knees and I’m not looking to jeopardise that for the sake of GPC states; on the day, if I don’t get that 250 squat, I won’t mind so much. As long as I walk away from the event without injury. Unlike the outcome of the first Perth Cup I entered last year.

I was happy enough with what I achieved today. All money sets were sans belt, and all were nice and deep. When I do squat, depth has always been a focus for me. I don’t want to half-ass any aspect of my training, and while at least one of my coaches has previously advised that I squat shallow to save my knees, I wouldn’t take this option and have instead been steadily squatting lower and lower with heavier and heavier weight. My surprise triple of 210 was deeper than I’ve ever gone before with anything around the 200 kilogram mark. Whatever I do on the day should get three white lights.
