130913 1RM Back Squat

Warm up:
5 min Airdyne
5 min DROMs
Burgener warm-up

1) EMOM for 5 minutes:
2 Hang Squat Cleans @ 70%
Notes: This is meant to provide a warm up for both the legs and the CNS. DO NOT go above the prescribed weight. Each set should be easy and fast.

2) 30 minutes to establish a 1RM HBBS.
Notes: The Cleans should provide a good warmup, but you will still need some Squat sets of 2-3 reps. Once you reach the 80-90% range, take 2 minutes rest then perform a “Walkout” (simply set up like you’re going to squat, walk out of the rack, and hold the weight on your back for 5 seconds – DO NOT attempt to squat – belts are recommended for this movement) with 5-10% more than your projected maximal Squat. If you are projecting 400#, walk out with approximately 425#. After your “Walkout”, rest 2 minutes then begin your near maximal and maximal attempts. If you have not missed an attempt you may go slightly over the time limitation.
240# (PR)

Cool down:
12mi bike ride

Disappointed and surprised with the weak effort on the squats. Granted I hadn't squatted heavy in a few weeks and I've lost about 10# since adding back all of the conditioning work. Also did this attempt on an empty stomach first thing in the a.m. 2 months ago I squatted this weight for 5 x 5. I just checked my PRs and see the last time I attempted a 1RM it was 230, so technically this is a PR.
