Stalled on squats

by Carl Brewer last modified 2009-08-02 00:54

I'm stuck at 185kg!

The last three times I've gone to squat heavy I've not been able to finish the sets.  I'm stuck on 185kg.  I got 3 x 3 @ 182.5kg out ok a week or so ago, repeated it a few times to bed it in, then went for 185.  My three attempts over the last week at doing 3 x 3's :

1 rep

2 reps, 3 reps, 2 reps (almost!)

1 rep

Argh!  It may still be a bit of the 'flu floating around, I'm not 100% and to lift heavy takes everything I've got, so maybe that's not helping. I might have to back off to 180kg again and start from there.  I'm not all that concerned though, it's time to really swing the emphasis from raw strength to strength and power on the bike.  Time to get the watt meter to tell better stories!

Lucie took some ace photos of the last DUCC training session we did on Wednesday too.  They're a great bunch of kids, very keen and switched on.  A real pleasure to work with.
