Front Squat

Training update for yesterday:
I'm continuing with the raw training and the modified block. This was week 2, so I'm doing 5's raw,
5 sets of Front Squat with harness up to 225.
I then added the belt and did singles up to 335.
The 335 was surprisingly easy and very fast with a dead stop all the way DEEP in the hole.
Too many squatters are terrified of being in the hole. I don't know about you, but I LOVE being in the hole.....
The plan was then to do some heavy squat supports just to feel weight on my back. I loaded a straight bar up with 315 and was supposed to hold it for 10 seconds. I got about .5 seconds and felt the horrible bicep tearing pain. Should have listened to Nate.
I switched to the Safety Squat bar and did 10 second holds up to 6 plates. This was pretty easy, so I'll go heavier next time.

I finished up with something, but I don't remember. I do remember bothering Steve a lot while he was trying to work out. That was fun.

To read all about Safety Squat bar training buy my book here:
TPS Books and DVD's.
