Week 5 – 5/3/1 – Day 20

Cycle #2

Agile 8 + DeFranco’s  

Squat:  5×95, 5×135 + 5×180, 5×210, 5×235

Haven’t done high volume heavy squats in a long time.  Made sure to get the bar in proper low bar position.  Tried to control the negative part of the lift instead of dropping too fast.

Boring But Big 60%

Deadlift:  5x10x165

First couple of sets were easy, but cardio-wise got me breathing very heavy.  Last 2 sets were very easy.  Ample rest between earlier sets to get my breathing down a bit.

Hanging Leg Raises:  10/10/8/6/4

Used arm straps today for the leg raises.  I’m getting the hang of the exercise- definitely less swing.  I lifted my knees to my chest fast and lowered them slowly to avoid swinging.
