Entry #928

Safety-band squats:
185 x 5
225 x 5
275 x 5
315 x 5
350 x 5
> ATG. Had to use the squat rack instead of the power racks due to curl jockies and had a really long walk-out to contend with since the sides are too high for me to go all the way down.

Unilateral dumbbell press:
125 x 5, 4, 5, 4, 5 (right arm)
60 x 10, 65 x 10, 65 x 15, 65 x 15, 70 x 15 (left arm)
> Weird, my reps kept fluctuating with the 125 dumbbell. I found that a lot of it was about tension and breathing.

Bent-over dumbbell rows:
125 x 5, 5 sets (right arm)
75 x 10 with Fat Gripz, 5 sets (left arm)

Some dude next to me put up 405, then 500 on the bar. He proceeded to do reps of quarter squats. Actually they were shallower than that.

I guess it's something (but not much) if you can even hold that weight up, but why don't you just do real squats so you can eventually squat that weight for...well, real? You're not getting heightened quad activation or whatever from pussy squats, stop kidding yourself.

  1. You should say that to his face next time (the quarter squat guy) instead of just posting it on the internet.
