Careful or your ass may explode.

So after one week of training nothing but trunk and legs I tried to back squat for a new 1RM on Saturday. Probably not the best idea I've ever had in my life. I warmed up and mobilized hip flexors and hamstrings. I hit a few sets on the empty bar and started to climb I weight.

Back squat: 95x5, 135x3, 185x2, 225, 250, 275 (5lb off 1rm and feeling easy), 285, FAIL. Huge fail, like bowel shaking earthquakes of doubt and remorse fail.

The heavy barbell got in my head again. Loaded up 250 to get some confidence back, FAIL AGAIN. Like dropped down on my knees kinda fail. Took a moment, tried to clear my head and went back to the barbell.

235 check, 245, check, 255, check, 265, check, 275 Fail again, but tired now, I know I've taken a pinch of the hair of the dog who bit me, and I'm fine.

Mobility and out.
