    Squats - I Forgot How to Add

    Doing SS. Today was heavy squat day. On Monday I did 280 for 3x5 and struggled a bit with form so I scheduled Friday to continue with 280 3x5. Wednesday's are light Squat day for me.

    After my 1st set I was pissed. It shouldn't be this hard to do 5 reps. Jeez, I ate like a pig and got mucho rest - WTF. Oh well, the second set was brutal as well. Man I just don't get it?? Sitting there resting I noticed the bar had an extra 5 on each side - DOH!! Christ I was squatting 290!!! I'm not supposed to hit that mark for at least another whole week. The last set I only got 4 reps.

    Goes to show that mind over matter is a real thing. If I hadn't have seen the extra 5's I maybe could have gotten that last rep. The human body never ceases to amaze me when it comes to lifting. I'm friggin old too.

    Keep Pushin and Pullin.....

    Nice! It really is your mind that determines if you get to move the weight or not. The body has to listen if the message is clear enough
