305 x 1 Overcoming Failure on High Volume Front Squats 185x12x4
I had a great time doing my Leg workout on Sunday. I started off with high volume Front Squats hitting 185 x 12 x 4 and then working up to 285 x 2 and a relative max of 305 after failing it once. After the successful 305 max I dropped down to 205 x 8 and then did some high rep Romanian Deadlifts with 115 x 15 x 3 for my hamstrings. I'm thinking about throwing in a couple of really high repetition type sets of Lying Leg Curls but I gotta speak about this to Eric first because I'm a little unsure of doing machine based work - I have this nagging feeling it can set me up for injuries on the big movements. Anyway, this workout was good because I managed to hit a relative max of 305 which is 10 lbs off my actual max of 315 on the day after a real heavy Deadlift workout and after some big rep sets. I will continue to add reps and sets before adding weight. The 205 x 8 at the end will be converted to 205 x 10 next week (hopefully).
