Tonight was our last heavy squat workout. Maura, Anna White and I met up to pound it out one last time before the big competition. I am really looking forward to Raw Nationals... But, I am ready for some rest.
My plan was to nail 240 or 245, but after looking at the video, you will know why I stopped at 230. Here is how it all went down...
~Huge sticking point at 230lbs. Wow... it felt like time stood still for a minute. Brad Madvig, on the spot, said he didn't help... Thanks for being there Brad! If you want a perfect demonstration in sticking point... check this out.
Training feels like a 5 course meal to me...
I start out at 70% - a frustrating weight to be at. It is like getting a bread basket at your table... you don't really want to eat a bunch of it, but you can't stop yourself because you are so hungry.
Then on to 75% - The amuse bouche... a tease of what is to come, leaving you hungry and dissatisfied.
OK, 80% - The soup, finally sustenance!
85% - Salad, my favorite part, I could be perfectly happy stopping here...
90% - Entree, always more that you thought it would be...
95% - Dessert, you think you want it, but you consume it with caution.
Max Out - That 5th glass of wine, the last of the bread basket, some of your dinning companion's meal... just a little too much, but you can't help yourself!
